Summary: I was excited about the price I paid for this special edition, which is the only reason I am not going to bother returning it. The full retail price is way too much considering this is an arcade style shmup that doesn't last any longer than an hour. It comes with a pillow case, art book, and a soundtrack cd. The soundtrack cd has a small flap embedded into the art book, which guarantees it will be scratched every time you slide it out and back into the flap.
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 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: IF you are one who either likes anime and video games or knows someone who does, but who also likes a bit of Challenge in their games with a bit of retro gameplay, then I would reccomend this game. I think also when on loading screens there is a hand pointer you can control where you can poke the girl on the loading screen. Can be funny I suppose. Don't forget about the 2 DLC characters either.
Summary: If you've played Gradius, Gradius 2 or Salamander before, this game will bring those late game night memories back, if you haven't tried this yet, you're missing out! I would recommend this to everyone, maybe PG to the younger players.
