It's really hard to find fault with this game. Constant power-ups keep your firepower potent, and the bosses are mighty but not unreasonable. The two-player simultaneous mode is fun because the increased visual chaos is offset by slow-down, keeping the difficulty on an even keel. So don't let the name scare you away. I play this game every day and I love it.

Für Fans des 2D-Shooter-Genres ist es einfach ein absolutes Muss, sich einen Saturn zuzulegen. Die PSX-Version kann zwar mit einigen schönen FMV-Cutscenes glänzen, dafür muss man hier mit häufigeren Slowdowns leben. Vielleicht nicht der innovativste Titel, aber das äusserst gelungene und fordernde Gameplay und die zudem prächtige Grafik machen "Soukyugurentai" zum Top-Titel in der "Radiant Silvergun"-Liga...

Even though the shooter genre is growing scarce in America, it's alive and well in Japan - and Soukyugurentai, along with having the coolest-sounding name in gaming, is an old-school 2D shooting masterpiece that fans of the genre really shouldn't miss.
