  • Conclusion: A very unique game that is a blast to play. Be weary if you don’t particularly like schmups, however, as it won’t give you much reason to come back.

  • Excerpt: It’s warming to see huge developers of the 8-bit to 16-bit era going back to their old ways thanks to XBOX Live Arcade. Hudson Soft created some legendary titles in the past including that cheeky chappie Bomberman and this game is equally retro. With many iconic scrolling shoot-em-up franchises laid to rest or whored out to handheld compilations the market needs fresh blood and with Omega Five Hudson Soft have delivered an entire blood bank.

  • Excerpt: As one of the D+PAD team elegantly put it this month, “XBLA has scrolling shooters up the f’ing ying-yang”. So what makes Omega Five worth your time and, perhaps more importantly, 800 of your MS Points?

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: At 800 Microsoft Points, Omega Five is a great shooter that's definitely worth the download if you're a fan of the genre. The game looks absolutely gorgeous with fantastic sounds, and highly addictive gameplay. It may be a tough sell to casual gamers due to its length and high degree of challenge, and to that we say try the free trial before you buy.

  • Summary: The Xbox Live Arcade game that shoot 'em up fans have been waiting for.
  • Pros: Beautiful graphics; intense action sequences; incredible amount of replay value; each character is different enough to merit their own playthrough.
  • Cons: The difficulty level is brutally hard; co-op get's a bit too hectic to be fun; some areas have what feel like cheap kills.

  • Summary: If you’re an oldschool gamer and you can handle a challenge, this game is definitely worth buying. Anyone who can’t handle the challenge, for whatever reason you may have, skip this game until Natsume releases a difficulty option patch, if that ever happens.
  • Pros: -Nostalgic, nostalgic, nostalgic., -True arcade-like design all around., -Cool sound track, even if a bit cliche., -Awesome tribute to a dying genre., -Good amount of well-designed characters to play as., -Fitting achievements., -Unlockable challenge modes add some replay value., -Incredible graphics for an XBLA game., -Cool weapons.
  • Cons: -Might not be worth the money, considering the length., -No online multiplayer., -No way to change difficulty., -4 stages seems a little short, even for the genre.
