PD Saga deserved a mention. Is a better game than Orta, which itself boils down to being a re-boot of the first game in the series.

Saga isnt a rail shooter like the original PD, Zwei and Orta. Its an RPG set in the PD universe.

Some honorable mentions would have to go to after burner, galaxy force, space harrier. Sega knew how to make fun rail shooters.

I was so turned-off at the word RAIL and all I could think of was Panzer Dragoon!

Rail shooter is about as sexy as Twitch FPS on dial-up.

To be fair, PD Saga isn't a rail shooter - which is what this article is about.

Nice list. I do love PD Orta - but I think both Sin and Punishment games are my favourite rail shooters of all time. Nice to see Killer 7 and TxK on that list too, also Panorama Cotton! Awesome!

Panorama Cotton does look amazing for a Mega Drive game. Also, yeah, Sin and Punishment (N64) would be my favourite too.

Also Pokemon Snap. We NEED a new Pokemon Snap for Wii U. It's the perfect console for it.

PD Orta all the way. Loved that game.
