Silpheed: Working Designs goes back to the future!

  • Summary: While Silpheed is a solid shooter that will challenge most gamers, this game is a homecoming of sorts for those who remember playing the original on Sega CD.
  • Pros: Nice eye-candy; decent voice acting and pilot chatter; old-school shooter feel
  • Cons: Slowdown occurs at times; some weapons seem generic or useless

My own experience of Silpheed.

  • Excerpt: "I happened across it in the bargain bucket in Woolworths and said a tenner for a PS2 game cant be bad, but I was wrong! I took it home and put the disc in and was greeted with visuals that would not have looked out of place on a Playstation 1 rather than a PS2. The gameplay was okay for a couple of shots but the lack of a real continue or save feature hampers you and after a couple of shots you feel like flinging it out the window rather than going ...
  • Pros: A bit like Axelay/Super Aleste from the Snes days
  • Cons: Its ten years later and should look better .

The PS2 is capable of much more than this

  • Excerpt: "...that totally miss the point. Silpheed: The Lost Planet is one such game. The PS2 is supposed to be a "Next Generation" console, so why is a game that is several years old being released. Developers should be pushing the system further and harder, not just throwing any old thing together to make a quick buck. For those who don't know, Silpheed is a Pseudo 3D scrolling shooter in the vein of the classic R-type. Ok, no bad thing you might think, but ...
  • Pros: Fast and fun while it lasts, impressive in places (though not many) and makes a great frisbee .
  • Cons: Too short by a long way .  Frantic, often to the point of frustration .  Not particularly new or innovative .

Pas de mode 2 joueurs... grrrrrr !

  • Summary: Silpheed est un très bon shoot-them-up mais il lui manque toute de même un élément essentiel : la possibilité de jouer à deux. Dommage, ça réduit un peu son intérêt car à deux c'est toujours plus convivial pour un jeu d'arcade.

Un shoot excellent

NICOLAS PHILIPPE, Amazon

  • Summary: Dans la lignée des shoot em up des années 80-90, silpheed est un tres bon jeu: réalisation excellente, action non stop, bonne bande son... et des effets spéciaux à se décoller la rétine... Bon certes, il est répétitif mais c'est le bon principe de ce type de jeux. En tout cas, le seul bon sur PS2.
