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: This is an old-skool, top-down shooter given a lovely coat of paint thats been cranked up to the max! This game is tough but always has you coming back for more. Once you have battled your way through a stage you can go back and practice that stage in isolation or see a demo of that stage being...
A game that changes all scrolling shooter games to date!

Summary: This has to be one of the most addictive yet intuitive games out there. the special feature about this game is the fact that you can change your aircrafts colour between Black and White. this means that if your craft is white then you can absorb all the white bullets that are shot at you.
Summary: YES!!! Thank you Infogrames! This game is a real gem. Originally published in Japan for the now (sadly) defunct Sega Dreamcast, it sold by the bucket load. Apparantly almost every Dreamcast owner in Japan had a copy. No wonder there was a shortage!
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: 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.
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.
Summary: How can a 2D top-down shooter, with no power-ups, weapon or ship upgrades, and only 5 stages that would last a total of about half-an-hour, be one of the best games on the Gamecube (and therefore on any console)?
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.
