Originally available as part of the recently-released Time Crisis: Razing Storm compilation, it makes more sense to be able to pick up Dead Storm Pirates on its lonesome, but at a penny shy of 16 quid, it's priced a little optimistically. Then again, if you're the kind of guy who doesn't mind shovelling loose change into infinity, maybe that's a bargain.

Namco Bandai's commitment to releasing arcade light-gun shooters should be commended as they're perfect fits for Move. The developers of Deadstorm Pirates deserve a bottle of rum each for creating a frantically fun, set-piece heavy co-op title which is accessible enough to be enjoyed in equal measure by core and casual gamers. It is a shame that gamers will be deterred from buying this because of its £15.99 price tag, and whoever set its PSN pricing should be made to walk the plank. The action-packed visuals and atmospheric audio design are commendable, and there is undoubtedly a charm to its pirate-themed setting. However, with just over thirty minutes of gameplay throughout its four main levels, including a fifth stage based on a boss battle, the content is too shallow for the asking price.
