If your a fan of old school shooters or(shmups) and you've never played a dodonpachi game then you're missing something special, known as"bullet hell" this game is an andrenalin fuelled eye melting blastathon, it maybe a bit hardcore for the casual gamer but compensates with a plethora of different game modes, styles and difficulties to ease in the newbies, but the true fans will not regret a moment of their hard earned cash spent on a game like this. you could finish the game in less than half an hour but its not about that. its about replay value and its infinite,5 levels of ridiculous firepower,dodging hundreds of bullets simultaneously,a soul destroying boss midway and at the end of levels, screen filling pyrotechnics and all doing this while listening to the bouncing japanese electric techno soundtrack(especially black label modes available for game add ons, XBL marketplace, which is a must!) this game is HARD and isnt for everyone but if you put the time in you will reap the rewards, and in turn fine tune your own gamer skills no doubt, its THAT crazy, ive played every game of this genre out there and if theres a better modern day vertical shmup than this..ive yet to play it.
