Video Game Den
All in all, I highly recommend Dragon saber to any shooter fan out there - great graphics, wicked soundtrack and excellent gameplay, and the two-player simultaneous option is a blast.
Die einzige Umsetzung des Automaten findet man nur für die PC-Engine. Mit einigen stark abgespeckten Grafiken macht das Spiel optisch einen etwas mageren Eindruck, ist dafür spielerisch einen kleinen Tick besser. Wie das? Ganz einfach, das Spiel besitzt drei Schwierigkeitsgrade und man kann seine Lebensanzahl auf ganze neun Einheiten hochschrauben. Für einen wie mich, der bei zu harten Shoot´em up´s gerne ins Joypad beißt (nur rein metaphorisch gemeint), ist das sehr angenehm. Mit nur vier ganzen Credits haben auch normale Spieler wie ich eine reelle Chance den Abspann zu genießen. Daher bevorzuge ich persönlich diese Heimumsetzung vor dem Original, auch wenn sie nicht ganz so toll aussieht. Somit kriegt die Konvertierung von mir ebenfalls neun Punkte. Und übrigens, die Musik ist hier genauso schön!

There really isn't much to separate this game from the original. It's a good old laugh but people who already have Dragon Spirit will be most upset if they buy this. To all intents and purposes, it's exactly the same game. The same weapons, many of the same baddies and very similar bosses. None of this bodes well for the sequel. Good tunes, loud and impressive sound effects help, but it's just another shooter. If your dying for something like this, better try Gunhed or even Raiden Trad. Both games are far superior to this very average blaster.
All Game Guide
Dragon Saber is a straight out, no frills sequel to Dragon Spirit and if you enjoyed the original, chances are you'll enjoy this one just as much, but not much more.
