Summary: as advertised, quick delivery, package was new and includer all unopeded collectibles that came with game, good price, not some personal or cali based lets jack up the price kinda company, would buy again if price stayed reasonable and kept staying with close to true descriptions, product was as advertised, so happy overall.
Summary: It was amazing. The only thing I didn't like as much is that it is only Japanese voice-overs and the English that is shown, scrolls very fast and is also small print, and some of it even scrolls when you must pay attention to the game, but the game is a lot of fun and I highly recommend this to anyone who likes the side scrolling shooter games.
Summary: If you are from the generation of people that were kids in the 1980s, you remember R-Type. That was one of the first Japanese arcade/spaceship shooting games (side-scrollers) out there. I sure did, even though I hated R-Type (it was too freakin' hard!).Then we had Gradius come out for PS1 and PS2 and that was an improvement from R-Type.
Summary: Ok, so I can see that a lot of people are focusing WAY too much on the boobs, but here is a legit review: Standard Edition: As a kid I played Gradius and such games a lot. I stopped, so when I found out this game, it made me get excited. The game is not that of a hard game, and rather sightly short, but it is a good game for those of us who have been out of the scene.
Summary: This is a great game for the well-versed gradius lover. Some of this game bosses will have you clinching your fist anger. the two player mode needs to not give the initial player a set amount of lives while second can carryon infinitely as long as p1 doesn't lose his 3. Some of the bosses hitboxes are very are small and require near perfect down or up presses to hit the sweet spot. So this game isn't for the impatient.
Summary: IF you liked the Gradius games from the NES and SNES, then get this game. My only complaint is that it's fairly slim on options and doesn't have much to unlock. It fun to play the score attack more though because you get 3 lives and no continues and it's fun to see how far you can get. The arcade mode has unlimited continues so if you can finish all the levels within an hour and a half or so, so this game is more about score than anything.
Summary: Just picked this up at Gamestop yesterday. I brought this game over to a buddies house where a bunch of us could't wait to tear into it. After about 10 minutes of playing this.... we turned it off and put in something else. This shooter is boring if your a hardcore shooter fan. The graphics and sound are great, but gameplay is slow.
Summary: If you're a fan of Gradius, you're certainly aware of Parodius, Otomedius, and other shooters of the same ilk. Otomedius Excellent is the first time that the franchise has hit the western market. With titles like Deathsmiles, Raiden IV, Raiden Fighters Aces, and some others on store shelves, is it worth getting Otomedius Excellent? Yes, for the affordable price I have no problem easily recommending Otomedius Excellent to any shooter fans out there.
Summary: I've played through all the Gradius titles (thanks to my PSP and PS2) and a little bit of R-Type (I picked up Final while waiting on this to come out to warm up). I've always been a fan of shooters (or shump as they're sometimes called) and picked this up simply because I'm always up for trying new ones (even though I'm not fond of the theme). The game's menu itself is different in that the right analog stick also doubles as a mouse cursor.
