This is the most Arcade like home version of Gradius. Actually this version should has over 99.9% as close as the original AC version. For those of you GRADIUS fans, just don't miss it!

Though Gradius Deluxe Pack is available for both the Saturn and Playstation system, I prefer to play this game on Saturn. This is because the loading time is seems a little bit faster in Saturn. The most important thing is, the control in Saturn is much better. I'm saying the Sega City's Power Control System - the original Arcade joystick. (^^)
