Otomedius Excellent is exactly what it say it will be, Excellent

Summary: It came in Perfect condition, and arrived sooner than originally expected. Otomedius Excellent is a fun game, it's like an Old School Arcade Shooter-Em Up game that you can play with three friends. I would suggest watching some gameplay video to see what I'm talking about. the Controls at first were hard to get use to, however you can edit them to how you see fit in the settings menu.
Summary: So my brothers got me a giftcard for amazon, used it to get this special edition game. Haven't played the game yet but the extras it came with was worth the $10 I paid for it. The pillow case all the other reviewers are saying is so risqué are just being dumb. It just shows large breasted women in bikinis. If I thought I needed to hide this from my wife because she'd get mad from a drawing, then I'd be a pervert.
Huge fan of the Gradius series; this--not so much.

Summary: I went into this with the mindset "What can go wrong? It's Konami, it's Gradius-inspired, and it's got anime girls!" Well, lots can go wrong. Gameplay can range between boringly easy and painfully difficult. The amount of graphical bloom in some areas almost makes me physically ill; combine this with the fact that some enemies seem to bloom in similar ways to the background and take on the dominant colors thereof, and/or there is actually some level of proper...
Summary: So that evens it out, right? Really though, it's a shmup and a decent one. The thing that sets it apart and this edition is the attitude. It's plain ridiculous. The game's... assets... are over the top and so is the included pillow case. This game does these things so proudly though, it's hard to knock it for that. I'm still not sure if it's a parody or not but I'm fine with that.
Summary: i got 800 gamer points and i do like the genre but ive played way better raiden is where its at the bullets and graphics were not good either it doesn't take much to make these games good but 1942 was even better considering how old it is good for chievos that's about it.
Summary: Gradius spin-off which doesn't do the series justice. Weapon/upgrade system is all there but is used in bland & confusing backgrounds where it's often hard to see enemies and targets. Girl's voices get annoying very soon too. I hoped for this to be a patch on Parodius but it falls short by a million miles.
Summary: Once the game starts the opening credits say from the creators of gradius and it shows. I always considered gradius to be a very slow paced shump, and it is no different here. My biggest complaint is the ship design it is like a female riding in a ufo, it makes it difficult to dodge bullets. I would consider this one of the weaker offerings available.
