Ikaruga

The Armchair Empire
10 November 2004
  • Conclusion: too many in North America got a chance to play RS as it was never released on these shores. I imported the game just after it was released and played through it at least 200 times before finally selling it on EBay for a considerable profit. That game took the entire shoot’em up genre and blew it up to reform it in all new ways. Ikaruga is not quite that innovative, but it might actually be the better game; I’ll let you know after 150 more plays.

Ikaruga (Gamecube) Review

Vooks
23 May 2003
  • Excerpt: In an era filled with many, many complex three-dimensional graphics, one game dares not to follow the standard set by \”Halo: Combat Evolved\” for the Xbox and \”Metroid Prime\” for the Gamecube. This game also happens to be one of the most addictive games ever. The game that I\’m referring to, is of course Ikaruga.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Ikaruga is a total blast! A fantastic game that is both unique and brilliant, with gameplay mechanics providing an unforgiving, but fun-as-hell difficulty level, that should provide enough challenge to keep you coming back for more. Oh, and shooter fans looking to complete their Ikaruga experience can grab a hold of the "Ikaruga Appreciate" DVD from their favourite import dealer - so if interested, grab a copy and watch a master player in action and pick up...

Ikaruga

Gamereactor

  • Conclusion: Eophona personata på latin, eller Större maskstensknäck som vi säger på svenska. Ja, eller som japanerna säger: Ikaruga. En liten svart/vit oansenlig fågel som har fått låna ut sitt namn åt den kanske sista stora titeln till Dreamcast - Ikaruga. Nu har det alltså även kommit till Gamecube, som är den enda konsolen som får spelet släppt officiellt utanför Japan. Treasure har mer eller mindre specialiserat sig på shoot 'em ups och får väl idag sägas äga genren.
  • Pros: Vackert, genialt, perfekt kontroll
  • Cons: Makalöst svårt
