Summary: Incredibly fun game with an excellent soundtrack (that comes with the game). The gritty art is amazing and twin stick control scheme is a godsend. Only gripes are the (intentional?) slowdowns and lack of an option in the arcade to have the screen free of the HUD.
Summary: Not much of shoot em up genre nowadays, so this is a jewel among tiring fps and action genre. The game is a little hard to master, but it will be eventually. The graphic is enhanced to match HD display, but somehow seemed forced so the aspect ratio and details are inferior to game specially designed for PS3, try Sine Mora for shump fans.
Summary: Shmups are a niche genre that is better suited for digital releases. Nonetheless, I feel there is something special about owning physical copies of games and to see any shmup getting a retail package in this day and age is rare. I felt this reason alone was worthy of my purchase to show publishers that there is a market for this kind of thing. As for the game itself, I think it's excellent.
