Anyone ever play this? I played it recently at a local arcade party and loved it. I never played it back in the day but now I want one !!

YES!

That game was and still is epic!

The control scheme requires that you play on the original kit, still... even to this day the graphics and gameplay are stupendous!

BTW, if you get one, can you do a film review for us?

It's funny, over the years I've seen quite a few for sales cheap here in So Cal, but I had never played it and never wanted it. Then I played one with original control sticks at someones party and fell in love with it. It is a very fun game and the control scheme is great. Kind of like a top down, raster Battle Zone but mixed with a shooter.

I hope I can find one again out here :)

One of my favorite games... I think it was on one of the Playstation compilations years back, I definitely remember owning it, can't remember exactly what the release was though. Played good on a dual shock style pad IIRC.

I love that game. Our local Alladin's Castle had it and I almost always put some money in. Great game. I don't think I ever played a home port, but I think it is on one of the PS1 compilations.
