  1. Game Fan
    A twitchfest that relies on lightning reflexes and good ol' ninja skill, not the patience to sit through poorly acted cut scenes. That's a compliment, by the way.
  2. 88
    In the end, Cannon Spike is definitely a great game that, despite lacking longevity, will satisfy those nervous reflex twitches.
  3. Daily Radar
    Solid and competent, the cannon hits its mark.
  4. Sega X
    It won't grab you by the throat and pull you in for months of your life, but it'll glue you to your seat for a good 30 minutes every now and then.
  5. The characters themselves are very cool and there are few games you can pick up for the DC that offer better arcade-style action.
  6. Fast, fun, and full of fire, but it's way too short. Even on all the difficulty levels you are getting the same game all around.
  7. 80
    For some shooting action with a twist, Cannon Spike is a ripping good time.
  8. AllDreamcast
    It's definitely not a bad game, just very short, even by arcade standards. But if all you're looking for is a fun shooter, Cannon Spike delivers the goods.
  9. It won't keep you entertained forever, but if you can get around its lack of length, Cannon Spike delivers.
  10. If you miss the good old days of arcade blastfests, Cannon Spike is your wish come true. It's a good, exciting, simple game anyone should be able to pick up and play. Yes, it will all be over way too soon, but while it lasts you'll have a blast.
