  1. Bangai-O is a one of a kind videogame. The only game that you can compare it with is the first installment of Bangai-O. And that's equally good as it is bad. Good, because it's totally different then anything else. Bad, because it will be hard for players to get accustomed to the series. In all fairness Bangai-O is a very good game but it gives the player litte chance to ease into the game.
  2. If you like a little bit of puzzle in your shooter and have a high patience level, then be on the lookout for Bangai-O Spirits.

    It might be good if the controls actually worked. Even they did, they make no sense. Waste of money and time.

    Hopefully you have played one of the earlier Bangai-O titles as the difficulty is very high from the start, is a rewarding game with much fun Hopefully you have played one of the earlier Bangai-O titles as the difficulty is very high from the start, is a rewarding game with much fun to be found. Is bound to give you an adrenaline rush every time playing. If anything lets this game down it would be the DS's D-pad, it's up to you to get used to it.. Full Review »

    No annoying, pointless cutscenes or loading times, lots of missiles and challenge, all other games have become obsolete since I started No annoying, pointless cutscenes or loading times, lots of missiles and challenge, all other games have become obsolete since I started playing Bangai. Only problem is that Sound Load doesn't really work Full Review »
