Ikaruga Xbox Live Review

DarkZero

  • Excerpt: I must say, being one of my favourite genres and despite the fact I’ve bought the game twice, I feel rather honoured to be doing this review. Ikaruga is looked upon as one of the de-facto shmups of all time and certainly one that has influenced a good few homebrew and douijn based shmup games...

  • Conclusion: Större maskstensknäck är en ganska oansenlig svart/vit fågel som på japanska heter ikaruga. Den har fått låna ut sitt namn till japanska actionkungarna Treasure som sedan drygt 15 år tillbaka levererat de bästa shoot'em up-spelen som går att finna.

  • Conclusion: 18 /20 Sur Xbox 360 comme ailleurs, Ikaruga reste l’un des monstres sacrés du shoot’em up ! Avec sa difficulté à s’arracher les cheveux, le shoot’em up à scrolling vertical de Treasure se destine avant tout aux hardcore gamers.
  • Pros: L'alternance de couleurs, Level-design génial, Maniabilité aux petits oignons, Très beau, Du coop online, Musiques épiques, L’aspect réflexion, Ikaruga à 10 euros !, Hardcore
  • Cons: Difficile d'accès, 5 niveaux seulement

  • Summary: Ikaruga er et tradisjonelt shoot-em-up i det at det stiller enorme krav til deg som spiller. Når det nesten slipper unna med det, er det fordi det gjør noe enkelt til noe nesten uendelig komplekst.
