MUSHA is the US title for Musha Aleste, which is, as you can obviously tell from the title, part of the Aleste series. Of course that already puts it at an advantage against most other shooters, but you really have to play this to see how good it is - The graphics and music are really good for a Genesis game, and the gameplay is outstanding. Sure, some people will complain that it's "yet another shooter", but when it's one of the best shooters the VC will ever get, does it really matter?
