Summary: Great, Solid Shoot 'Em Up action. This deluxe edition has three huge advantages over the Japanese retail release: 1) Digital Art Book 2) Soundtrack on CD 3) All DLC with an exclusive in game Chopper. The game also displays in 1080p and has trophy support.
Summary: As a fan of the original Dreamcast game, this is a fantastic port. Usually I find these HD, deluxe, reimagined games of old to be a wast. Rehased ideas, with little flare of what made the originals the retro gaming darlings we know of today.
Summary: There aren't really any choices for an on disc shmup for the PS3 but even if that weren't the case this would be a good game. I've never played the Dreamcast version so I can't say if that's better or not but that seems irrelevant.
Summary: Only a die hard fan would notice the very minor differences between the original DC version and this PS3 port. This version can be had at a fraction of the price, and has a few new features such as two additional helicopters and widescreen mode with it's own soundtrack.
One of the best, if not the best, shmups on the PS3
15 December 2013
Summary: Worth the price of admission just for the OST. It's short but sweet and intense, just like the game. There's also gorgeous high resolution art included on the disc in PDF format. As with most shmups, you don't often experience the characters in-game, but their portraits do appear between levels.
Summary: I'd never played the original, but this game is well worth the price for anyone who loves classic shmups. The inclusion of the original Arcade layout along with the new 16:9 mode is really nice.
