I've been checking out the site Hardcore Gaming 101 for info about that, but I don't remember all the info from that massive site.
Off the top of my head:
-Earthworm Jim 1: Though the PC versions have either more levels (win95) or better colors (can O' worms), the Sega CD version has those versions' music.
-Lunar Silver Star: Redbook music and slightly different story compared to the PS1-GBA versions.
-Lunar Eternal Blue: Redbook music and a few more events compared to the PS1 version.
-Popful Mail: Has cutscenes and arguably better gameplay compared to the PC88 and SNES versions.
-Snatcher: Different soundtrack from the PC Engine version (which was mostly based off the already excellent MSX soundtrack), uncensored graphic violence that got censored in the later releases.
-Shining Force CD: updated ports of the Game Gear chapters.
Any other games worth mentioning that have unique features or are best played on the Sega CD?
