Okay, so it’s not a particularly impressive game by today’s standards, but as a value title Darius Gaiden delivers. For a $9.99 MSRP (we found it online for as little as $4), you get 28 levels with branching paths and ridiculously complicated level bosses to keep things interesting. The game is playable in multiplayer mode on the same keyboard, and it runs just fine off of any old Pentium machine. For fans of the old-school side-scrollers or folks who don’t mind dropping less than the price of a movie ticket for a fast, fun, brainless diversion, Darius Gaiden is a great buy.
