Old school awesome!
This review is from: DeathSmiles Xbox 360 Game
Pros: An excellent port of an original arcade title from Japan with a few extra options and gameplay modes. The game plays like many of the old school arcade shooters from decades past. You select your character and face off against waves of enemies throughout the stage until you reach the boss. The stages are fairly short but have adjustable difficulty for those looking for an extra challenge. There's also an online mode that supports 2 players.
Cons: This is one of those niche titles that may not be for everyone. The old school shooter mechanic and difficulty will turn off many gamers raised on Call of Duty & Madden.The graphics are decent for an older arcade title but the games console release could have used some extra polish. It's an arcade title so the game is over fairly quickly. Since the price is about the same as an xbla game it's not that much of a con.
Other Thoughts: Hard to believe that this game was $60 at one point. But at the current price it's a steal. The look of the game is similar to classic NES titles like Ghosts n Goblins or Castlevania with a heavy dose of side scrolling shooter, of course. Games like these are a rare find these days. With arcades in the U.S. gone forever it's nice to see these types of titles are still around for gamers to enjoy.
