This game requires the reactions of a Jedi Master…literally

  • Summary: You reckon you are a pretty good gamer, eh? You’ve collected all 120 Shine Sprites on Super Mario Sunshine, aced every stage on Super Monkey Ball, finished Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty on European Extreme mode and even completed every Final Fantasy game to date 100%. You are a natural born gamer. So, you shouldn’t find it too difficult then, to pass even the first stage of this trivial shoot-em-up.

  • 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. There is a bit of slowdown when you defeat a massive boss, but since you aint shooting, you can let it slip.

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.
