The Laser
18 October 2007
  • Summary: Giga Wing is a solid title, especially for fans of the genre who are starving for new entries. It takes a lot of what made the first game good and only enhances it. Between the multiple weapons levels, the score multipliers and the sheer amount of shots on the screen, this is one heck of a handful trying to play through, especially with fewer continues.

Giga Wing – Review

GameCritics.com
4 September 2004
  • Excerpt: Just a few weeks ago, I reviewed Capcom's Strider 2 for the Sony PlayStation. In the process of dishing out heavy doses of praise for the game, I talked at length about the joys of "old-school" arcade gaming and expressed a desire to play a 2-D action game in which "there's so much going on at one time that you can't comprehend a damn thing," only to lament the fact that we're not likely to see too many games of that sort nowadays.

Giga Wing 2 – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
4 September 2004
  • Excerpt: I wouldn't classify Giga Wing 2 as an exquisite gem by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't think its a waste of the CD-ROM that it was burned on either. The game does try a few interesting things conceptually and while the overall success of the title is debatable, I still give Giga Wing 2 credit for the effort and I appreciated it more than Brad did.

Giga Wing 2 – Review

GameCritics.com
4 September 2004
  • Excerpt: Giga Wing 2 is the latest in what most people today would classify as a rapidly dying breed—the genre most commonly known as "shooter." Reaching the height of their popularity during the late 80s and early 90s, shooters usually consisted of a spaceship or aircraft of some sort controlled by the player versus enough enemies to fill an arm of the Milky Way.

  • Excerpt: > Long time readers of my reviews know that old-school shooters have a place in my favorite's list.  Capcom is the first to deliver the goods for Dreamcast in their vertical-scrolling 2D shootfest known as GigaWing.  It's an arcade port (surprise) with the addition of some new modes.  If you've played games like Battle Garegga (Saturn), and Strikers 1945 (Saturn) then you know what to expect.

  • Excerpt: Finally, old-school shooter fans can turn their attention to the Dreamcast, now that Giga Wing is on its way. Boasting the same gameplay as famous classics like Raiden, Giga Wing is a top-down shooting blast-fest that pits your choice of one of the four selectable characters against a seemingly endless onslaught of enemies.

Giga Wing 2 (jap.)

Sega-Universe
14 November 2007
  • Summary: Wer schon immer wissen wollte, wie viele Projektile sich auf einmal auf dem Screen tummeln können, sollte den Titel anspielen. Was hier an Effekten geboten wird, ist schlicht und einfach irre. Allerdings macht sich das in teils massiven Slowdowns bemerkbar, speziell im 4-Player Modus. spielt in einer anderen Liga wie , oder - kann und will auch gar nicht mit ihnen konkurieren.
  • Pros:  Toller Polygon-Look & guter OST,  Unendlich Continues,  Arcade Stick kompatibel
  • Cons:  Slowdowns,  Stellenweise unfair,  Durch Smartbombeinsatz leidet das Gameplay

  • Summary: Giga Wing war einer der Dreamcast Titel, die ich zur Zeit der großen Ramschverkäufe '01 / '02 für wenig Kohle bei einem großen Elektronikmarkt abgreifen konnte. Ich habe es nicht bereut, auch wenn die Spielzeit von 30 Minuten ein echter Witz ist. Wer insofern keine abendfüllende Beschäftigung sucht, sich ungern an Importen versucht und sich am Projektil-Overkill auf dem Screen nicht stört, kann zugreifen.
  • Pros:  Viel Action auf dem Screen,  Vier verschiedene Flieger
  • Cons:  In 30 Minuten durchgespielt,  Keine Extrawaffen,  Häufiger Übersichtsverlust
