One of my favourite horizontal shooters on the SNES was always Gradius 3 and another is Parodius. R-Type 3 is also pretty good but not really my type of shooter.

If you want a really good shoot em up go for Super Smash TV, one of my favourite blasters on any system. It's not a horizontal or vertical shooter though, it's an run around and shoot game with 8-way shotting. Awesome game.

I only played the original on the NES. I can see how it would be superior to the NES version. Fun game though

The best Vertical 2D shooter is proberly Super Aleste (called Space Megaforce in USA).
It's like an older brother of Gun Nac on the NES with similar power-ups etc, but in the more hard-core Super Aleste you're not fighting giant robot bunnies and stuff.
