One of the better PS2 Shmups

Flying Scissor Beans, Amazon
16 June 2015
  • Summary: Two very good games, both as difficult as you would expect a bullet hell shmup to be (not quite up to DoDonPachi levels af hair tearing, mind you). The game menu is almost hidden which is a little strange but neccessary to find the great tate options (options to rotate screen and controls 4 ways).

Old-skool shoot 'em up with a nice new twist

tom1clare, Dooyoo
30 July 2007
  • Excerpt: In the complex and ever-changing world of gaming, the 2D isometric shoot ‘em up has proven something of an enigma. The enduring genre dates back well over twenty years to the likes of R-Type and Ordyne, and playing 2002’s Psyvariar, it appears that some conventions are rigidly opposed to change.

A game of two halves

"geoffjohnson2", Amazon
27 October 2003
  • Summary: Ok the first thing you'll notice about this game is that it tries so hard to be ikaruga, if you see the beginning of the first level you'll understand what i'm talking about. I think the prase "game of two halves" sums this game up perfectly.

Schweißperlen auf der Stirn

sinfortuna, Amazon
4 December 2006
  • Summary: Dass eine überwältigende Mehrheit von Euch – selbst die PS2-Besitzer unter uns – aller Voraussicht nach noch nie vom Ballerspiel „Psyvariar“ gehört haben dürfte, liegt in erster Linie daran, dass es sich um ein Importspiel handelt, eine Pal-Version dieses Shoot’em-Ups gibt es schlichtweg nicht.

Abgefahrene 2-D Shooter Action!!!!

  • Summary: Wer schon mal Psyvariar 2 auf Dreamcast gezockt hat, weiß was ihn erwartet: Psychelischer Projektil Overkill zu gutem Techno-Klavier Sound, eingepackt in einem relativ neuen Gameplayfeature: schieß die Gegner nicht sofort ab, sondern lass sie erst Mal ihre Projektile "loswerden", um möglichst knapp...
