  1. Giga Wing 2 takes pride in the details. With a higher resolution and an impressive 3D engine, the graphics look much sharper than any shooter on the Dreamcast console.
  2. A kick ass looking shooter. Unfortunately the length of the game combined with the unlimited continues makes it a short experience.
  3. A good game. For a mere $20, you get plenty of mindless old-school fun, albeit for a relatively short time.
  4. You'd be hard-pressed to find a more visually impressive shooter on the Dreamcast, and the game is highly playable to boot.
  5. I actually think GigaWing 2 is a great game in many ways, but it is so short it makes even the super-low $20 price tag look steep.
  6. At a bargain price of only $19.99 US, you won't be disappointed, at least not with the graphics. You won't have any complaints with the soundtrack either, as each stage has its own unique, fully orchestrated musical score. The game's length and replay value are another story though.
  7. Just too easy, too short, and too busy visually. It’s initially quite an impressive looking and sounding game, but you know the saying about looks being deceiving.

    Very good shooter, and you can actually beat it! Most other games like these are to hard to beat and you haveto play things over and over again.. well.. not in this game! You just continue where you dies and leave all your old troubles behind you, making you ready to face the new troubles and challanges that await! The graphics are a bit dated but still look pretty good, maybe a bit to colorful for my taste, but thats okay, just turn down the color on your tv and you're set to go! Expand
