Summary

A good vertically scrolling shooter with a twist.

The Good

Silpheed is a fun shootie, the gameplay is nice and the 3d'ish view is a nice touch. And the intro is terrific (and unusual).

The japanese always did the finest games. :)

The Bad

Well the sounds are a bit drab, and so are some of the graphics too.

The Bottom Line

An interesting Japanese shootie.
