Summary: If you're a shoot 'em up fan and have yet to play Ikaruga...HUGE SHAME ON YOU. It was made by 2D gods Treasure and if that doesn't sell you... nothing will. Ikaruga has you playing as a pilot who has to (yet again) save the world.
Summary: Simply, its just a Unlooked treasure of a game. Myself and hundreds of others count ourselves lucky to play such a gem of a game! If its not too late, try this game, definitely one of the best games out there, and one of the best games on a truly unique console, the GC!
Summary: I've always loved shooters like this and played them in the arcades (in the 80s and early 90s) all the time. R-type...1943 (i got to the last boss on 10p!)..Tiger Shark...but without doubt, this is the best shoot em up i've ever played.
Summary: Treasure dazzle again with that special brand of gaming bliss fans have come to expect - frenzied 2D action with the emphasis on an addictive core gameplay mechanics, rather than superfluous graphical effects that have increasingly come to typify modern game development.
Yet another 5-star review, let me tell you exactly why!

Summary: Ikaruga is the best 2D shooter I have ever played, bar none- and I have played a lot of them! The fact the there is a practice mode where you can re-play every specific section of every level over and over again just shows how difficult this game is.
Summary: If a gamecube is under your TV and you cant get anything challenging/enjoyable for it then stop and take a look at this! If you have any appreciation for sprites or old skool gaming then this is the ultimate in beauty!
Summary: I will review that game from my import japanese version on Dreamcast as a reference, i can tell you right away that game is absolutly amazing, from the GRAPHICS to the very accurate CONTROLS that makes the gameplay realy enjoyable.
