Polar Panic Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Sadly, though, some of this engaging gameplay is sullied by that annoying ticking timer. Due to the fact that you’re racing against the clock, you often don’t have the time necessary to really plan how you’d like to tackle the increasingly complex puzzles.

Ikaruga

True achievements
7 May 2009
  • Conclusion: It is one of the most unique shooters I have ever played, a veritable classic that stands up next to the likes of Radiant, Battle Garrega & Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire with its head held high. I would like to thank you all for taking the time to read this review.

Ikaruga

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: The thing about Ikaruga that's hard to get when you first see it is how deep it is. On the surface, it's a relatively short, extremely challenging shoot-'em-up, and is one of the last of its kind to have anything resembling a high concept.

Ikaruga

Xbox Evolved
3 May 2008
  • Summary: Ikaruga on Xbox Live Arcade is by far the best version of the game yet. There is some slight slowdown, graphic glitches, and the Xbox 360 controls aren’t always best suited. The online co-op, leaderboards, and replay saving can’t be beat at only 800 points ($10) making this a XBLA must have.
  • Pros: Easy to learn, frantic, intense gameplay, Co-op
  • Cons: Some visual glitches, short

  • Excerpt: Approaching Ikaruga, or as it’s more widely known in pro gaming circles, “The IK” for the first time is like approaching a wounded Tiger with a cattle prod.

  • Excerpt: “` Treasure’s Ikaruga has moved from the Dreamcast and Gamecube onto the Xbox Live Arcade. The transition has added a few new additions, such as online co-op, leaderboards, and replays, to what was already a solid title “` I karuga seems to simply throw you into the deep end, and then laugh at you...

Ikaruga review

Gameplanet
27 March 2009
  • Excerpt: This is a great 2D side-scrolling space shooter. It'll kick your butt and if you don't hate that, you'll love it!
  • Pros: Lots of fun and strategic depth.
  • Cons: May be too challenging for the more casual player. If playing with a friend, you might accidentally knock them into a wall.

Ce classique de l'arcade (également sorti sur Dreamcast l'année dernière au Japon) se révèle diablement efficace et démontre brillamment qu'il est encore possible de surprendre dans un genre...

Test: Ikaruga

XboxFront
11 October 2008
  • Summary: Auf Xbox Live Arcade herrscht gegenwärtig ein reges Treiben krachender Kaufargumente. Standen früher schnöde 1:1-Portierung von Nintendo- und Super Nintendo-Klassikern auf dem Programm, passen sich Entwickler indes dem zukunftsversierten Spieler von heute an und locken mit immer besseren „Games für...
  • Pros: + astreiner Vertikal-Shooter, + innovatives Polaritäts-Konzept, + toller Koop-Modus via Xbox Live, + Replay-Funktion, + gute Technik, - Online-Gefechte mit leichter Eingabe-Verzögerung, - Replays nicht via Xbox Live versendbar
