SummaryThis is the evolution of the scrolling shooter to perfection.
The GoodIt restored my faith in old school style games brought to the Nth degree on a 4th generation platform. I like shooters. I prefer shooters to RPG's. The parity concept of the attacking ships and bullets seems to add a puzzle like element to making your way through a level. You are forced into thinking and plotting because brute force and firepower alone will not win.
The BadA vertical scrolling shooter made for arcade style monitors has to compress itself on your TV to see everything in all it's glory. If you have a widescreen TV you find yourself playing this game that takes up a small vertical stripe in the middle of your set. This is making me think about the possibility of mounting a widescreen TV vertically because you can switch the view to horizontal but something seems to be wrong if you are actually watching it scroll sideways instead.
