This all gels together perfectly to form a very accomplished experience, set to rival the best shooters out there. The stages are no larger than they were in the first instalment, but this does not matter. It’s what you get out of each stage that counts. The game can be played on so many different levels, rewarding whatever ability you have and pushing you to improve.

Sorti sur Naomi en 2004, Psyvariar 2 prouve que la Dreamcast en a dans le ventre, et ce grâce à une réalisation de haute volée, digne de celle d'Ikaruga. Le jeu associe un gameplay redoutable d'efficacité à un univers et une ambiance générale parfaitement maîtrisés. L'action y est trépidante et c'est les yeux fermés que l'on prend l'habitude de se jeter au milieu des salves de tirs ennemis, récupérant expérience et niveaux à la chaîne. Pour les adeptes de musique dans ce style, le jeu est une franche réussite, et le parcourir est un plaisir sans cesse renouvelé. Psyvariar 2 n'est peut être pas le shoot'em up ultime, mais alors franchement il n'en est pas loin du tout !

This is a game that seemed impossible to me when I started playing, but, as is usually the case when facing insurmountable difficulty, I put on my headband, blasted my Transformers: The Movie Soundtrack, and let em' have it! Well, not really, but still, though it looks too hard to be fun, the spinning technique adds an extra element of enjoyment to this new but slightly old game.

The concept works great, thanks in part to some extremely forgiving collision detection. The explosions are some of the best I've seen, and I love how their bright flames dissipate into black smoke (although the boss deaths are a bit too over-the-top). Ported directly from the arcade, you play Psyvariar 2 on a heavily cropped vertical screen, and some of the text and icons are extremely tiny. This is a one-player only game, and while the continues can be turned on or off, you can't set them to a specific number. The soundtrack really kicks ass, layering a melodic piano and soothing vocals over pulsating techno beats. Psyvariar 2 is yet another exceptional Dreamcast shooter than never made it to the states, and it breaks my heart.
