Akai Katana

Game Vortex
12 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Some innovation comes from combination, “mashups” as they are fondly known in the Tech start-up world. In the gaming world, we see this with trends like Action/RPG games, where developers try to bring out the best in both genres.

(Xbox 360 Review) Akai Katana

The Entertainment Depot
13 June 2012
  • Summary: With a handful of levels and generic enemy types, Akai Katana is really for the score hounds. Fortunately for Cave and Rising Star, I’d say that covers the majority of shooter fans.

Akai Katana

Total Xbox
16 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Why are fighter pilots battling bombers and flying supervillains in the skies over Japan? Who knows: we don't speak Japanese, and only Akai Katana ’s ending videos offer subtitles. But that doesn't diminish the excitement of dodging bullets in this wild side-scrolling shooter.
  • Pros: + Unusual resource-gathering mechanics add an absorbing layer of shape-changing strategy., + Completely insane local co-op sessions.
  • Cons: ? Why so few English subtitles to go with all the Japanese speech?

Akai Katana review

GameZone
15 May 2012
  • Excerpt: There are still plenty of fans out there who appreciate a good “shmup” — shoot ‘em up, for short — especially the “bullet hell” variety.  These are shooters where ammunition comes flying at you from every single angle, and you need split-second timing or a hell of a lot of power-ups just to stay in...

24 July 2012
  • Conclusion: There's no escaping the fact that Akai Katana is a Japanese shooter with wonderfully woven mechanics and an anime presentation.

Akai Katana Xbox 360 Review

DarkZero
20 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I simply love companies like Rising Star Games . They do their utmost best to bring us niche titles that big publishers simply would never touch. We have to thank them for bringing games like The King of Fighters XIII , the Harvest Moon series, Half-Minute Hero , Muramasa and Little King’s Story .

Een ontelbaar aantal kogels, leuk om te spelen, een game die veel vaardigheid vereist om er maximaal van te kunnen genieten, maar ook een game die iedereen die niet...
  • Pros: Heerlijk chaotisch, Vermakelijk voor veteranen en beginners, Weer een SHMUP!
  • Cons: Niet zo heel veel content

Test : Akai Katana Shin sur Xbox 360

XBOX MAG
7 February 2014
  • Summary: Ce n'est pas parce que l'on est entré dans le livre des records comme le développeur de danmaku le plus prolifique que l'on doit relâcher la pression. Cave nous remet donc une couche de boulettes bleues et roses avec Akai Katana Shin.
  • Pros: Réalisation de bonne facture, Rythmé, Ambiance soignée
  • Cons: Mode Shin extrêmement complexe, Pas toujours très lisible
