Summary: The two modes of play are arcade and new order. I like the fact the game is two player so I can play this with others. The boss levels are fun and the action is fast. It is a bit difficult no matter what setting you choose. You piolet a futuristic chopper with a bomb option and lasers.
Not a faithful arcade port, but stands on its own legs

Summary: The other reviews already cover this excellent game in plenty of detail, so I'm going to add some extra notes rather than write another full review. If you want to play the "tate" vertical screen arcade version of Under Defeat then get the Dreamcast or Naomi version.
First ever (that i can think of) physical release Shmups for ps3

Summary: Under Defeat is fast action fun with a dash of difficulty( the DLC helicopters make it a breeze). Widescreen HD mode is definitely where the game graphically shines, but it also includes the original.
Summary: If you are a fan of the Toaplan military shooters of the late 80's/early 90's, get this game. It hits the right notes. Excellent soundtrack(s), new features not in the original DC version such as dual stick mode and redone HD graphics, and and accessible challenge set this shmup apart.
Summary: I like the action in this game. I have the Dreamcast version of this and I think the graphics are better on this version. It is bascially a vertical shooter, meaning that you travel up to the top of the screen shooting enemies. The explosions are nice, good sound and the enemy units are different.
Summary: Under Defeat is an interesting story. It started out as one the final releases for the Dreamcast in the midlate 2000s, in which the system was already dead everywhere else outside Japan. The fact that not only did G Rev rereleased it modern consoles, with Rising Star Games releasing it in the U.S.
Summary: I bought it because it was a shmup on PS3. And it is, however, it is not as good as some of it's competitors. I would give it a 5 for everything but I have to knock it down because I think the Dualshock 3 controls just aren't where they need to be. Still a great game if you like this sort.
Summary: I downloaded this from playstation store and i think its one of the best shooter games on playstation 3, it's not as well known as raiden or other games that have been released only on playstation 3 but i think its worth the $2.69 i paid for it!
