  1. Sometimes, you just need to blow stuff up. You'll have a hard time finding a better game on the Dreamcast to satisfy those brutal urges than the delightfully cartoony, but fiercely addictive Gunbird 2.
  2. 85
    Even the humor and motley crew of heroes and villains makes Gunbird 2 a fun, but short-lived experience.
  3. It's fun and replayable -- what more could anyone want?
  4. I haven't had this much fun with a game in a long, long time. It may be short, but it offers more challenge in those seven stages than most games do in 20 hours.
  5. 84
    Other than playing to improve your score and having a friend who wants to play with you, Gunbird 2's replay value is definitely on the short side.
  6. 80
    The game can be really difficult, but, thankfully, you can choose from seven ratings, ranging from "Very Hard" to "Baby."
  7. GunBird's the word, standing out as one of the best finger-crampin' exercises since the Rubik's Cube.
  8. A Pile of Shoot. The control is almost flawless. Maneuvering your ship isn't the problem -- the crowded action is the problem.
  9. The game is really, really hard, but that's the nature of this genre. I just wish that there were more rewards for my efforts; it feels almost pointless to try so hard.
  10. Because Gunbird 2 is such an insanely hard game, casual gaming fans are warned to stay away. Only hard-core fans of the genre need apply.
  11. If a good 16-bit shooter is what you're looking for, you could do a lot better elsewhere.
  12. We are left with a mediocre title that only keeps shooter fans mildly entertained till we can get our hands on "Gradius III" for the PS2.
  13. Too short, too hard and not packed with the replayable goodies one expects a home port to deliver these days.
  14. Sometimes the visual assault becomes so chaotic, you may lose track of your on-screen location. Our advice: Fly blind and keep on shooting.
  15. All flash and no substance, Gunbird 2 is too hard, too short and too boring to even bother looking at.
