Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury
28 January 2012
Excerpt: The genre of “bullet hell” games is well represented on the Live Arcade, so does Bangai-O HD stand out? This might not be the best or hardest game of this kind out there, but Bangai-O HD is great fun. If you love screens that are jam packed with bullets, this is all you.
Conclusion: I would say if you like the sound of the game, take the metaphorical leap of faith and buy it, if you give it a chance, you probably won't be disappointed. This review was written because I feel this game has not received the attention it deserves.
Excerpt: Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury is brought to us by Treasure, the third game in its series so far. People who are already familiar with the Bangai-O series or any of Treasure's games know what this pedigree represents: some of the very best shooters in the business, demanding quick reflexes while also...
Excerpt: Although I usually don't bang the drum for "The way games used to be," Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury is a great example of the type of repayable challenge that kept a constant stream of quarters dropping into arcade machines. It's hard, but wonderfully rewarding.
Review: Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury (Xbox Live Arcade)
12 May 2011
Excerpt: It truly has been an era of rediscovery for Treasure developed titles. Games like Gunstar Heroes , Ikaruga , and Sin & Punishment have already become downloadable titles, and others such as Radiant Silvergun and the recently announced Guardian Heroes are not too far behind.
Excerpt: Bangai-O is one of those games that if you mention it people will either look at you like you are crazy, or light up with delight. This Treasure shooter has roots as far back as the N64 and has made...
Pros: + Variety of levels, + Tons of content, + Level editor, + Progression is never hindered
Excerpt: Here's a title that should come with a surgeon general's warning: may inspire feelings of inadequacy about your gaming skills. Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury is the third installment in a series of experimental shoot-em-ups from the cult developer Treasure.
Conclusion: Concept: Put Bangai-O’s insane bullet hell action on a console that can actually handle it
Graphics: When the screen is crowded with projectiles and enemies, no amount of high-def can help you see any better
Sound: Hearing the chain of exploding enemies after you unleash 1,000 missiles at once is...
Excerpt: It’s pretty hard to figure out exactly what’s going on in Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury. With hundreds of robots, missiles, giant ants, lasers, and various fruit flying around the screen at once, you’ll have a tough time tracking your little flying mech, much less keeping him alive.
Pros: + Fast shoot-’em-up action, with an amazing number of enemies and projectiles onscreen at once., + Tons of levels, plus even more with the level editor.
Cons: - Too difficult for non-hardcore gamers; occasional slowdown., ? Will anyone be able to beat every level? We’re not so sure.
