  • Conclusion: While Star Soldier R lacks a story mode, it's a great WiiWare title that will always keep you coming back to advance in your regional and worldwide high scores. The only complains I personally have about this game are the lack of a story mode and the useless Quick Shot mode. At 800 Wii Points, this is a great WiiWare title to get for your Wii.

  • Conclusion: Check out the original Star Soldier offerings (and the other shooters) on Virtual Console first; they’re cheaper and more complete than what Star Soldier R has to offer. If you’ve got 8 bucks burning a hole in your pocket, chances are you’d be better served by what’s available there instead. On the other hand, if we end up seeing a full game based on this engine down the road, I’d be very excited about that.

Star Soldier R Review

GameSpot
21 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Star Soldier R is the first game on the WiiWare service that qualifies as an adrenaline-soaked addiction. You might assume that a top-down shooter with only two levels would get boring extremely fast--and it is possible to see everything this game has to offer in just five minutes and 10 seconds of playtime--but that supposition doesn't take into account the chronic need to get the highest scores your poor little thumbs can manage.
  • Pros: Insanely addictive, Great controls, Online leaderboard makes score comparisons easy
  • Cons: Only two levels, Quick Shot mode is pointless

Review: Star Soldier R

N-Europe
28 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Shortness and the fact that there's only 2 levels aside, the game had the potential to be fantastic. The more hardcore fans of arcade shooters will love this. The leaderboards will motivate you to get more out of the game.
  • Pros: Incredibly fun, Very addictive, Online leaderboards
  • Cons: Extremely short, Will get repetitive, Steep at 800 Wii Points

  • Excerpt: High-Score-Junkies und Shoot’em-Up-Fans aufgepasst – Star Soldier R nimmt Kurs auf Wii. Anstatt eines Story-­Modus erwar­ten Euch drei Spiel­varianten: Die ersten beiden begrenzen die maximale Spielzeit auf gerade mal zwei bzw. fünf Minuten! In dieser Zeit düst Ihr durch die zwei enthaltenen Levels und versucht, Euer Punktekonto in die Höhe zu treiben – achtet dabei auf das Combometer und sammelt Waffen-Power-Ups sowie kleine Satelliten auf.

Expert Review

Nintendo Difference
5 November 2008
  • Summary: Star Soldier R est shoot’em up addictif et très jouissif. La série reprend là un second souffle avec le service WiiWare. A conseiller à tous les amateurs de jeux de shoot spatiaux, ou même à ceux qui veulent en tester un pour la première fois, à petit prix.
  • Pros: Dynamique, Envie de rejouer et d'aller plus loin
  • Cons: On aurait aimé un mode de jeu libre, Le mode tir rapide va exploser plus d’une manette

Star Soldier R Review

Nintendo-Online
17 October 2008
  • Summary: Shoot’em Ups fristen seit Jahren ein Nischendasein neben First Person Shootern, Strategiespielen und Rennspielen. Selbst Genrereferenzen wie Ikaruga werden nur von einer kleinen Masse von Spielern beachtet und erzielen niemals die Verkaufserfolge eines Call of Duty, StarCraft oder Gran Turismo. Trotzdem schafft es immer mal wieder ein Genrevertreter auf eine aktuelle Konsole, ansonsten tummelt man sich regelmäßig auf der Dreamcast.

  • Excerpt: Plus de vingt ans après sa naissance, la série des Star Soldier revient titiller les amateurs de shoot'em up avec un nouvel épisode disponible via le WiiWare pour 800 points. Prenez les commandes du seul vaisseau spatial qui peut mettre fin à la menace extraterrestre... Ce Star Soldier R pourrait se résumer en une formule : intense mais affreusement court.
