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. If you are a fan of the Gradius series, I highly recommend picking this up. It's difficult, yet fun, as you would expect from this franchise.
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. Besides them being direct faithful arcade ports these games were also previously released as follows: Gradius 1 and 2 that are on this compilation were released both on a single disc called "Gradius Deluxe Pack" on the ps1 many years...
Summary: This is an excellent game for the PSP. This collection includes the original versions of Gradius (arcade) and the newer versions as well. The options allow you to set the screen size (original or full-screen) which helps a lot. You can also map the buttons however you like in the options menu and they've provided a "rapid-fire" button setting for each of the games.
Summary: I have been a long time fan of Gradius for my Nintendo and Game Boy. I guess I was hoping for remakes of the Game Boy versions but they are remakes of the Arcade games. I'm so used to the Game Boy versions that I am not 100% sure if these are exact duplicates of the arcade versions. Now I was able to check Gradius 3 against the arcade and they were the same as far as I got.
Summary: This is not necessarily a game for the average gamer. Things simply have changed a lot since Gradius was originally released. The game clearly is from an age where you didn't play to win a game, but to see how far you could get before the game beat you. And of course, the graphics are just the original graphics from way back when. However, if you are a fan of the original game and/or retro-gaming then this will be a blast for you! I especially like Gradius 1.
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. There's several versions and each one is addictive the same, never want to stop and put it down. I am completely satisfied with this game and I would definitely buy another one for a friend as a gift.
Summary: I have this collection and think its fantastic, I finished the first and I am currently torturing myself on the 2nd, currently on stage 8.1 I think, the level after boss rush, its absolutely insane. Its sooooooooo hard! That's what she said.
