I've updated my Wild Guns review (same grade). X-Kaliber 2097 is a new review.
I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Critic, nice review of wild guns. That is probably one of my top three snes games. I think you hit all the main points. This is a great game to play with friends.

Have you tried the ps4 update? It's fairly cheap, cleaned up graphics, widescreen, two new characters, and a few more stages. Honestly, I think the snes game is more balanced then the newer one and the new stages can only be accessed by changing the difficulty level (you can't play all stages on one difficulty). Still it's worth a look if you want more wild guns action. I'm glad that it even happened, maybe one day we'll get a sequel.

This was actually a set-up for the upcoming PS4 review!

Did you actually play past the second level of X-Kaliber 2097, or even finish that level? Not that the rest of the game really gets better (the land mines in the park (!) and the fish in the sewer are even worse than the motorcycles, and every boss is as painful as the first one), but this review seemed uncharacteristically shallow for someone who usually gets into greater depth even when reviewing terrible games.

Also, those aren't "health packs" that look like Coke; they're literally Coke. The other health pickups are burgers and beef shanks.

Didn't get past stage 2 but I did used a cheat to peek ahead. There was some nice scenery but the gameplay was subpar to put it nicely.

Glad to have learned you can get this game on Steam for PC - finding the SNES version probably ain't happening.
