Radiant Silvergun

BluRay Authority
18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Let’s be honest, Radiant Silvergun is now available on the Live Arcade and you will want to purchase it. After all, it is one of the greatest SHMUP experiences ever created. In order to even acquire this game prior to this release would cost you hundreds, so for fifteen bucks, its a given. The premise is simple, you pilot a fighter ship through waves of enemies, collect power-ups, and die. And die. And die. And die.

  • Summary: Some four years after Treasure's Masato Maegawa hinted at a re-release of one of the finest shoot-'em-ups ever to grace the world, Radiant Silvergun is finally available on Xbox Live Arcade for a fraction of what the Saturn game used to go for on eBay. Shmup enthusiasts will no doubt have blindly picked up this new version of the game the moment it came out, but not every classic from the '90s has made a successful revamp on current-day digital platforms.

Radiant Silvergun review

GamesRadar
29 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Radiant Silvergun is for crazy people. Or at least it used to be. It's a punishing shooter that's tough to master and, until now, could set you back upwards of $200 to import from Japan (not including a special cartridge or a Japanese Sega Saturn). You tell us that ain’t a bit crazy. Above: Welcome to the grind.
  • Pros: Well-designed gameplay, The triumph of beating hard stages, Not paying ridiculous import prices
  • Cons: Punishing difficulty, The early grind, Underwhelming online

  • Summary: It has taken a long time for " Radiant Silvergun " to be freely available to a worldwide audience any many gamers will rejoice in this. On the other hand however the game will not appeal to all, thus meaning some players may wonder if the game if was worth the wait.

Radiant Silvergun (XBLA) Review

  • Summary: Radiant Silvergun is a fantastic game that should appeal to a wide audience. Shooting enemy ships with crazy guns creating crazy explosions is fun at the most basic level. The action is fast paced and your heart will race as you dodge waves of enemy bullets that seemingly fill up an entire screen. Put some time into honing your skills and you will be rewarded with one hell of a satisfying experience.

Radiant Silvergun (X360) - Review

VGChartz
29 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I’d like to preface this review with some background about myself: I am historically awful at shoot 'em ups, and undoubtedly one of the absolute worst gamers to ever grace the shmup genre. Having said that, I’m also a severe masochist - a true glutton for punishment – where grinding out hundreds upon hundreds of hours in the name of Materia and Pokémon sounds like a couple of fun-filled weekends.

23 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Most scrolling shooters start you off with a pellet gun and force you to scrounge upgrade capsules for better firepower. In this attractive retread of 1998’s Radiant Silvergun, you’ll fly into battle with seven different ways to ruin an army of robotic machines. Vulcan, homing, and spread weapons each boast two firing modes, and your energy blade absorbs some enemy bullets to power Hyper Sword assaults.
  • Pros: + Seven offensive options at all times, six of them upgradable; online co-op., + Well-crafted chain scoring system rewards forethought, patience, and teamwork.
  • Cons: ? How’d they cram all those guns into such a tiny ship?
