Gradius V (PlayStation 2) Review

Cubed³
5 May 2015
  • Summary: Konami's Gradius V first hit PlayStation 2 in 2004, and it was very highly received by fans of the Japanese shoot 'em up (or shmups) genre. Despite being called Gradius V , it was actually the sixth Gradius title, along with prequel Gradius Gaiden , and the first to be released on consoles instead...

  • Summary: Gradius V is a game for the hardcore, and the curious. The graphics and gameplay are superb and will have you wondering why there aren't more games like this any more. Certainly one worth adding to your collection.

Gradius V PS2 Review

  • Conclusion: Konami delivered an amusing shooter that may inspire players to find other games similar to it. The cold hard truth is that not many games are developed around the side-scrolling type shooters anymore.

Gradius V Review

Eurogamer
18 August 2004
  • Conclusion: Serving up a reheated portion of old school retro gaming might satisfy a few hardy souls, but it's hard to see its appeal extending much beyond that. If stupendously hardcore shooters that require the skills of other worldly beings are your thing, then the chances are you'll be in some sort of...

  • Conclusion: Gradius V est une réussite éblouissante qui allie savamment les ingrédients des shoot classiques avec les possibilités techniques de la PS2 et qui signe grâce à Treasure un titre à posséder absolument.

Gradius V

gamereality.org
3 September 2005
  • Excerpt: "Gradius V on mallikkaasti toteutettua sivuttaissuuntaan vierivää räiskintää, jonka kolmiulotteinen grafiikka toimii vain kulissina aivan totaalisen retrohenkiselle, kaksiulotteiselle pelattavuudelle.
  • Pros: + Vauhdikas, + Näyttävät tehosteet, + Hyvä ja konstailematon pelattavuus
  • Cons: - Hieman itseään toistava

Review: "Gradius V" (PS2)

gamingxp.com
1 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Lange ist es her, dass sich klassische Shoot 'em Ups noch großer Beliebtheit erfreut haben. Nach und nach wurde dieses Genre verdrängt und wurde, wenn überhaupt, nur noch auf Handhelds gespielt.
  • Pros: Ein echter Klassiker, Gute Grafik, 2-Spieler-Modus, "Multiples"
  • Cons: Sound, Teilweise unfair oder zu schwer

  • Summary: Je sais, je suis grave à la bourre. Le cinquième volet de Gradius est dans les bacs depuis belle lurette mais le test arrive seulement maintenant dans les colonnes du meilleur site de jeux vidéo au monde (celui-ci, bande de moules).
  • Pros: Un plaisir simple, presque bio, Petit prix, maxi jeu, Réalisation parfaite

  • Summary: Gradius erhält mit dem fünften Teil sicherlich einen würdigen Nachfolger der überaus populären Serie. Grafik und Sound sind für 2D-Nostalikger auf ansprechendem Niveau. Leider halten der saftige Schwierigkeitsgrad sowie der ziemlich spärliche Umfang des Games den Spielspass und somit auch unsere...
