Shoot...Shoot....Shoot....Absorb....Bang.....Explode..Repeat

  • Summary: As the title of my review explains, that is what you do in this game...a lot, but in a weird, strange way, its a good thing. Ikaruga is a very addictive, easy to play, extremely difficult game. While it may not win any awards for best graphics, it certainly makes up for it in gameplay.

Ikaruga the ultimate show boat

  • Summary: Wow...... What a game! Initially this game destroys you with it's difficulty but with repeated plays you realise the genius behind it as you progress further. The graphics are amazing, they've got a definate style about them and the amount of sprites the game chucks out later on is mind boggling.
