Ordyne ist ein technisch toller Action-Eintopf mit schmackvollen Zutaten - nur an der Gewürzmischung hapert’s etwas. Schmucke Grafik, tolles Scrolling und niedliche bis fetzige Musik sind zwar vorhanden, und Ordyne spielt sich entsprechend gut, aber der letzte Pfiff fehlt: meistens derselbe Levelaufbau mit dem obligatorischen Endgegner ohne große Überraschungen.

This game has a lot of variety, across the range of wonderfully crafted stages you'll encounter an R-Type style huge mothership and a crazy rotating maze which shows the SNES wasn't the only console able to do mode 7 like effects. Whilst this game is an excellent blast it faces some stiff competition on the VC. The gameplay whilst fun is short-lived and once completed there is not much replay value in comparison to faster and tougher shooters which are out there. If you want a light hearted blast to while away a few hours however you could do a lot worse than this.

Ordyne's an odd one, that's for sure. But it's an odd one that's worth a look. It's not as ridiculously difficult as many other shooters, making it a good shooter for starters inexperienced with the genre. It has some unique ideas in its gameplay design, and a two-player co-op mode, making it a good shooter for already-dedicated fans of the genre. Its graphics are cute, but not amazing, and its control would be much nicer with some kind of standard turbo button, but those complaints don't defeat its earning a fair recommendation. Ordyne's 600 Points on the Wii Shop. Check it out if you want a break for the ordinary.

TurboGrafx-16The Video Game Critic
The ability to buy and experiment with various weapons is easily the highlight of the game. The action moves at a leisurely pace, and is definitely on the easy side. Enemy projectiles move slowly and are shaped like large, orange circles. After breezing through the initial "airship" stage, and then through caverns filled with floating orange donuts, the challenge finally kicks in with a treacherous underwater stage. My friends weren't particularly impressed, but this likeable shooter is a natural for younger gamers.
