Summary: I love me some Gradius and I like cute girls. The game is fun and easy to play, but the 2 player mode is not the best. Player 2 movements are strangely limited and if Player 1 dies, everyone's game is over. There's little localization here, ergo only English text with Japanese dialogue. Although, for a game like this, that's not a big issue. You REALLY don't need to know what the character's are saying, this game is pretty shallow.
Summary: From a graphical standpoint, the game looks super awesome. But the gameplay itself is none more than an "eye-candy" side scrolling shooter. But with that being said, the action can get intense, and huge boss's firing fodder every which way to Sunday *(and on Sunday, too), but was just hoping for more...though I did see YouTube® video prior to purchase. If side shooters are your thing, I would give it a try.
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: 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.
