Great game, difficult controls.

S. Wolford, Amazon
4 December 2010
  • 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. Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty darn fun.

A Nostalgic Trip to the past

Alex Brigade "Pen", Amazon
17 February 2008
  • 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. The one problem is that these games are a wee bit difficult. As in, original japanese difficulty. The good news is that they've implemented save states, so you can restart at a tough level. Overall, It gets 4 stars from me.

Cool game, fun at times, can become repetitive.

  • 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. Its fun for people who love it and I highly recommend if you have the time for this game.

Great collection!

Drewboy, Amazon

  • Summary: You're probably wondering why I rated this four stars yet am calling it a great collection. Well, the screen is only available in either 4:3 aspect ratio, or STRETCHED widescreen. Stretched looks bad, and it irritates the heck out of me, so that's why I give this game 4 stars. I didn't get into the Gradius games until Super Gradius for the SNES. I saw this collection, and thought it'd be a nice addition. The first three games were on the NES, and you can definately tell.

THESE GAMES ARE AS HARD AS EVER!!!

Daniel Moreno, Amazon
2 August 2006
  • Summary: Gradius has been one of my favorite video game series. I was a kid when the 1st one came out on Nintendo, and the game back then was really really hard. Now that I'm an adult who has kept up with video games and am considered a "veteran gamer", I thought I'd have an easier time getting through this Gradius series re-release. Let me tell you, years of sharpened gaming skills did not make this game any easier(when left on the normal difficulty).

A complete collection?

P. Hulshoff, amazon.co.uk
30 June 2008
  • Summary: I've always been a great fan of the Gradius games, a series of some of the hardest and funnest shoot-em-ups every produced. This collection combines the first 4 arcade games with the originally only on the Japanese PS1 released Gradius Gaiden. After reconfiguring the buttons (a must if you want to be able to play this game properly on the psp) you're ready to play any of these games, watch the videos or listen to the game music.

Más que un juego, una enciclopedia

  • Excerpt: Podría comenzar por la contra, si no eres amante de los nostálgicos árcades, se te hará repetitivo... Aquí tienes prácticamente toda la historia de este árcade por las diferentes videoconsolas, videorobots y soportes por los que ha ido reclutando fans. Un buen y nostálgico mata-marcianos.
