Summary: Good on the go compilation of the classic shoot em' up or SHMUP series Gradius. Comes with 1,2,3,4, and Gaiden which has never been released before for the U.S. The games themselves minus Gaiden since it was on the PSX are all ported straight from the arcade so no extras like some of the console...
Summary: I love the Gradius series, and have played them on various consoles for years. I was delighted to find this little gem on the PSP. This game contains 5 games from the Gradius library, including Gradius IV witch was not released in North America.
Summary: What a great value title for any psp owner that is even slightly interested in 2d classic shooters. From what I remember enjoying these games in the arcades many years ago I am pretty sure that these are the direct faithful arcade roms/ports.
Summary: This is Gradius. If you know what Gradius is, you know how hard and fun it is. The only drawback is, the Playstation(tm) styled controls can be difficult at times. It doesn't completely take away the fun of the game, but there is a bit of a learning curve.
With incredible value this is the best gradius release so far, and long time U.S gradius fan's dream come true

Summary: What a geat value title for any psp owner that is even slighly interested in 2d classic shooters. From what I remember enjoying these games in the arcades many years ago I am pretty sure that these are the direct faithful arcade roms/ports.
Summary: You know, this game is awesome in ALMOST every respect. It emulates the Gradius games perfectly, from the very first all the way to Gaiden. It keeps the good ol' music intact, the controls are easy to pick up on, and the it's nostalgia is pure.
Summary: Cool game, fun at times, can become repetitive. I play this game once a week and at first get so engaged, but it may become repetitive. I used to love these Gradius games and I bought it to return me to my childhood times.
Still addictive, still fun as ever and now on PSP.

Summary: Its nice having this game on PSP, its the type of game you'd play on a cellphone while waiting for a doctor's appointment but this time its on PSP. Its awesome on widescreen although you can play on regular screen.
