Best Shikigami game to date.

jSten, Amazon

  • Summary: Read all the way through if you want to know why this is the deepest Shikigami game to date. Shikigami games have an odd history of North American releases. From nonsensical renames (Mobile Light Force) to nonsensical translations, they have a reputation for creativity if nothing else. But once we get into the game itself none of that really matters, so this review is primarily about playing the game.

  • Summary: Not content with the excellent offer of Milestone shooting games, Aksys offered us the opportunity to sample some more manic shooting goodness in the form of Castle of Shikigami III, with a quite decent localization for North America, for a change. Fans of the genre shouldn't skip this one.

Great Shoot-em up Game!!!!

Showdown, Amazon
4 November 2011
  • Summary: Many reviewers are too young to remember that the original shooter games were like this vertical scrollers before Castle Wolfenstein created the onslaught of First Person Shooters or FPS games as they are called today. People have retroactively re-named this type of game shmups an abreviated term meaning shoot-em ups not to be confused with light gun games which are referred to as on rails shooters if you cannot move independently and are moved a long a fixed path by the...

Castle of Shikigami III

Musiclover "Musiclover", Amazon

  • Summary: Great game, good graphics. I really like the fact that 1 player can be playing and a second can come along and join at anytime. As you play it fills up an anime gallery of some pretty nice pictures, also has a gallery of user submitted photos. I like the fact that you can control players by turning wii remote sideways and it's like old time gaming, my daughter took a few to get the hang of it but I found it fun and easy to control right away.

  • Summary: Supports GC controller as well as classic controller; but will be more fun to play with a Classic Controller wii stick.

A faithful port of the Naomi arcade version!

  • Summary: This is a prety great shmup. My only complaints are: A) I much prefer sprite-based games to 2.5D Polygons. I only know of 3 games that have done the polys well (Radiant Silvergun, Ikaruga, and Triggerheart Excelica.) This isn't one of them. B) The Wii's video encoder is crap (even on a Wii U through HDMI) and it's vaseline blurriness all over the screen. I haven't tried it in Dolphin, but that may clear up the problem.

Pretty much Touhou-style danmaku with incredibly cheesy storylines.

Zovistograt, Amazon

  • Summary: I play Touhou, so taken that I'm used to impeccably high standards, I didn't expect Castle of Shikigami III to be on the same level. And really, it's not. However, it does have that same feel of good bullet hell mixed with anime-esque characters. The difference here is that the plot of Castle of Shikigami III is to silly self-referencing comedy anime as Touhou is to psychological masterpieces. That said, it is funny. Just TURN OFF THE ENGLISH VOICES.
