Indiscutablement le savoir-faire se reconnaît et donne lieu à un solide jeu de tir et d'aventure spatiale. Ce n'est pas un shoot'em up qui surprend à chaque détour comme les maîtres du genre le font si bien, il est relativement tranquille dans son déroulement, mais le finir puis tenter de conquérir ses autres modes de difficulté tient en haleine aussi longtemps que notre volonté le permet.

Video Game Den
Unfortunately, Burai Fighter has a couple of flaws - the top-down levels distract from the flow of the game (they are nice additions though) and the difficulty level is quite hard. But all in all, Burai Fighter is an excellent and unique shooter with a solid execution.

Since the Nintendo doesn't have many shoot 'em ups in its software range, Burai Fighter is a welcome addition as far as I'm concerned. Although there are only three extra weapons each has nine different grades of power and can be cycled through in the heat of battle - essential, since some weapons are more effective than others in certain situations! On the normal level, the game isn't particularly tough, but the two other skill levels offer plenty of challenge for the experts - I certainly got plenty of fun out of it. If you're a shoot 'em up fan like me who's after a good Nintendo blast, check this out.

So while Burai Fighter doesn't necesarily break too much new ground, that doesn't mean it's not worth at least a look. The gameplay is solid enough to satisfy shmup fans and the different features help it seem like slightly more than just another space title. It may not give the top titles a run for their money, but Burai Fighter is another long-forgotten NES title that at least deserves a look.
