Despite these minor quibbles, Renovation's latest will be a contender when the '92 shoot-'em-up award rolls around. Don't think twice about selling your soul to Sol-Deace!

A good shooter that fans of the genre should pound on.

Retrogaming History (May 11, 2010)
Sol-Deace per Sega Genesis è sicuramente un valido shoot ‘em up di spiccato stampo arcade. La sua notevole immediatezza, basata anche sull’ottimamente implementato weapon system, contribuisce al rilevante appeal di questo sparatutto che non manca di offrire una sfida stimolante e divertente per tutti gli amanti dei titoli ad alto tasso blastatorio. Gli indubbi pregi inerenti a struttura e gameplay di questo prodotto non si estendono, tuttavia, alla realizzazione tecnica che, pur proponendo un serratissimo ritmo di gioco, gradevoli animazioni multi-sprite e una pregevole colonna sonora, risente di una programmazione non sufficientemente ottimizzata che comporta rilevanti flickerii e alcuni rallentamenti. I 7 livelli di Sol-Deace e la brevità di alcuni di essi, infine, implicano una longevità di corto respiro che, tuttavia, non inficia la sostanziale validità di un’arcade shooting experience breve ma intensa.

Endlich gibt es wieder ein Ballerspiel für das Mega Drive, das den Spieler bis aufs Zahnfleisch fordert. “Sol-Deace“ ist selbst für eingefleischte Ballerprofis harter Tobak. Der Endgegner nach der Mondlandschaft ist ohne Lebensverlust kaum zu schaffen. Habt Ihr die Steuerung der Geschütze im Griff, könnt Ihr taktisch an die Angreifer herangehen und sie mit den richtigen (und vor allem richtig plazierten) Extrawaffen in ein Rauchwölkchen auflösen. Unterstützt wird das größtenteils von Adrenalinüberschuß lebende Spiel von hektischer bis psychedelischer Musik. Denjenigen, die “Sol-Deace“ zum ersten Mal spielen, wird das Spiel wahrscheinlich unfair erscheinen, aber laßt Euch gesagt sein: Jeder Gegner hat eine schwache Stelle. Durch den oft vorherrschenden Actionüberschuß kann man wegen des bißchen Geruckels kaum böse sein. Im Gegenteil: Teils erfüllten mich die gebremsten Gegner mit Dankbarkeit. Jeder Actionfreak, der sich nach neuer Ballerkost sehnt, sollte Sol-Deace eine Chance geben.

Sol-Deace has flaws but it is still a solid title overall. Its major problem is its heavy competition. The Genesis is inundated with many quality shooters, many of which I would recommend before Sol-Deace. It’s a solid second or third tier release but that’s about it.

So in the end, what can be said about this middle child between releases of Sol-Feace? Well, despite that it's an 8Mb cart, the entire game is essentially there. Wolf Team didn't push the Sega CD too hard, so little really had to be removed outside of the actual game itself. The loss of the opening cinemas and CD audio is a shame, but the cart turned out better in a spot or two thanks to what I feel is a much better ending and no load time pauses. Yes, there's a generic tinge to the game, the backgrounds look very flat in spots, and the flicker is annoying, but the overall game itself is a solid entry to the genre. Not bad, not great, but solid with some smooth animation qualities, nice visuals and sound, and an interesting weapon system. So while it's no Thunder Force IV or Steel Empire and has some issues, it's an enjoyable game that can be found pretty cheap if you like the genre.

The background graphics are just average, but the bosses have a lot of moving parts. Many enemies have long limbs that are difficult to avoid. There are six stages and unlimited continues. Sol-Deace is pretty much a "by the numbers" shooter, but it does have an addictive quality.

Wenn man also alles zusammen nimmt, was "Sol-Feace" ausmacht, dann kommt man zu dem Ergebnis, dass es sich hierbei um ein gerade noch nettes Shoot´em up ohne nennenswerte große Momente handelt. Leider. Im Maniac-Modus ist das Spiel dann noch viel unspielbarer, da Slowdowns und massives Geflacker den Spielfluß und -spaß gehörig behindern (Dazu sage ich nur: der dritte Endgegner.). Aber das wollte ich doch gar nicht mehr erwähnen… Dieses Spiel sollte man nur in der Sammlung haben, um ein Beispiel liebloser "Programmierkunst" für alle Fälle parat zu haben. Und weil das Cover so schön ist.
