    Default Best graphics on Sega Genesis?

    I'm doing a little research and I'm trying to find some games with top quality graphics. Something that really uses that blast processing

    The game itself don't need to be "good", but has to have good graphics.

    Panorama Cotton
    Earthworm Jim

    Hell, Sonic the Hedgehog is totally monstrous.

    and many more. First that came to mind.

    Off the top of my head I'd say Ristar and Vectorman 2.

    Ristar looks good, but I wouldn't say it pushes the genny beyond limits. Earthworm Jim has a very strange art style that's also very good but It doesn't really go as far to be best looking game on gens.

    I've noted Vectorman, looks fantastic even to this day.

    Never heard of Panorama Cotton, I'll have to get it a go.

    Gunstar Heroes.

    Edit: It seems Baloo just beat me to it.

    Edit 2: I might as well make this post have some purpose, here's a list of some games that push the graphics with the Genesis.

    Oh, and if we're allowing imports then consider Duke Nukem 3D for the Mega Drive, it doesn't play as good as the PC version but it looks pretty good for a Genesis game.

    Red Zone, although this YouTube clip doesn't quite do the game justice.

    I'm going to say the watered down ports that were on SNES don't really count.. even though a lot of the games look good, they could look better.

    I know I'm sounding pretty picky here, but I'm trying to find a definitive best looking game.

    Right now I'm torn between Contra: Hard Corps and Vectorman and I'm not sure if it's just me but I think Light Crusader looks amazing too.

    Default Pulseman

    I just downloaded Pulseman on my Wii. It's an import, but it was available on Sega channel for a short time. Great graphics and ton of dialog for a cartridge.

    That's probably the best place to go. Also, Toy Story is quite the looker, especially the 3D stage.

    are you asking about which game pushed the genesis graphics capabilities the most, or the most visually appealing game?

    even today, this needs to be clarified, pushing the capabilities on a system does not mean the style is pleasing to look at. art style should praised or condemned rather than the technical prowess of the programmers

    I was always impressed with the 3D intro to Sonic 3D Blast. I'd also give both Ecco titles a worthy nomination.

    The Adventures of Batman & Robin. Some of the later stages are pretty impressive looking, the Mad Hatter boss stage stands out in particular.
