When all that silicon juice gets fired up, the Sega Saturn comes close to duplicating the visual and audio razzle-dazzle of a $20,000 coin-operated machine. Thus, it’s only fitting that of the six Saturn titles now available, two — Daytona USA and Virtua Fighter (included with the Saturn) — are versions of games that have already proved themselves, quarter by shiny quarter, in the trenches of video arcades. Daytona, an adrenaline-inducing racing simulation, has a particularly realistic feel: Bash your car into the wall and you can see the resulting dents. (To make the illusion seamless, Sega also sells an add-on steering wheel for $79.99.) B+
