A rare treasure
7 March 2011
Summary: This is one of those games that is fantastic and that sadly lurk just beneath the radar because most people are too busy with often inferior big-budget titles to take any notice. Silpheed is an old-school space shooter with a very high quality presentation, excellent gameplay and a packaging that will definitely catch the eye of any PlayStation 2 collector. I am glad I bought this game for my collection.
Summary: When this game first came out, I purchased it, took off the plastic surrounding it, and looked deep into its eyes. I wondered if it was the one for me, questioning the validity of such topics, and figured I'd give it a shot. And, after that initial test, we instantly fell in love. And what was not to love? It offering me a ship to fly me, and I offered it the dynamics of human reflexes and it was on.
Summary: I purchased this game with my new PS2, about a year ago. I was definitely surprised that a game with such an old gameplay concept had come out on an advanced system like the PS2. I figured the shooter had died out with the arcade-heyday. Was I ever wrong! The graphics in this game are absolutely stunning, and the explosions, despite not being obnoxious fireballs of death, are smooth and colorful, especially when they temporarily white-out the screen.

Summary: Silpheed is a fantastic shooter that I'd recommend to anyone. It is a sequel to a Sega CD game that appeared a few years back. This time, the masters at Game Arts have teamed up with Treasure(Gunstar Heroes) to produce this stunning sequel. You pilot the SA-77 Silpheed, a strategic space fighter with multipe weapon systems through 8 levels filled with gorgeous backgrounds, fantastic lighting effects, and great music/voice overs by your fellow wingmen.
Summary: This game is a reason to get the PS2. I now regret selling all my Sega stuff (CD and Silpheed included) all those years ago. This game is just like the one we all remember with better graphics, music, and the intense gameplay of a shooter we all look for. There are only 8 levels and I have already gotten to level 6. Not that the game is easy, believe me it is hard as anything, but this is the type of game I like.
Summary: Many of the games for PS2 are anything but excellent, one of the exceptions being Silpheed The Lost Planet. You just can't put your controller down while playing this game. The only problem is that their's a little slowdown at times, but that still doesn't stop Silpheed from being a great game And fans of the Sega CD version of Silpheed will notice the option to load different weapons on each side of their ship, earn new weapons based on their performance in each level,...
Nicht so gut wie IKARUGA aber ein Highlight für Shooter-Fans

Summary: Dass ich das noch erleben darf... Als alter AMIGA-Freak und Fan von Spielen wie R-Type, Z-Out, Silkworm (S.W.I.V.), 1942, Hybris oder wenn es sein muss auch Gradius kommt "Silpheed" natürlich sehr gelegen. Auf höchstem Niveau wird hier Baller-Action vom Feinsten geboten. GESCHICHTE: Aliens bedrohen die Menschheit (ach... mal was Neues). GRAFIK: 100% - Obwohl in 2D geballert wird, drehen sich die Hintergründe ab und zu in den einzelnen Level-Abschnitten.
Summary: La persona que hizo el anterior articulo demuestra que no tiene ni idea y que si ha jugado al juego, ha sido a una versión pirata del mismo. Ya que empecemos por decir que el juego no pertenece a CAPCOM, y que la empresa distribuuidora para Europa es SWING!, y para España en concreto Virgin Interactive Entertaiment España. El grupo de programación es GAME ARTS, que son japoneses.
Pros: único shoot'em'up de naves en vista cenital, con calidad en PS2
