Summary

More Like "Side Arms Deluxe".

The Good

I have the arcade version on PSP, i liked it, so I bought the TurboGrafx version for 5 dollars at a D.A.V thrift store. This version by far is the best version of Side Arms Hyper Dyne. The music is spectacular, the weapon upgrades are vastly improved over the arcade version, and the graphics are slightly better.

The Bad

The only complaints of mine are that you do not have unlimited continues, which makes the game four times as difficult. But the biggest complaint is no co-op multiplayer. That was one of the games key features, but I commonly play games alone, so it doesn't matter to me.

The Bottom Line

If you like high-speed shoot em' ups, and you want a major challenge, side arms is the game for you. You may have to download it as it is quite rare nowadays.
