    Such a really good game, the story, the characters, the weird mix of side-scroll shooter and an RPG was really awesome, I know it's not gonna happen but I love to see a sequel, this title has so much potential

    This game tries to subscribe to the fact that blending _anything_ with an RPG is a good idea. Unfortunately for Sigma Star Saga, neither the dungeon crawling nor the battle sequences are even remotely compelling - which is unfortunate, the storyline seems like it's very enjoyable. The repetition is what really kills this game for me; level design in the battle sequences is This game tries to subscribe to the fact that blending _anything_ with an RPG is a good idea. Unfortunately for Sigma Star Saga, neither the dungeon crawling nor the battle sequences are even remotely compelling - which is unfortunate, the storyline seems like it's very enjoyable. The repetition is what really kills this game for me; level design in the battle sequences is practically non-existant, and the dungeon crawling is just plain unremarkable and sluggish to play. A nice try, but it falls really short. Expand

    This is the best idea for a game I've ever seen and it has a possible 27,000 weapons to attach to your ship (literally) because there are three different types of gun data to mix together and there are 30 of each type wich adds up to 27,000 possibilities.

    Best GBA game this year, and one of the best of all time!

    I love shooters... but getting all the way to a boss, dying, and finding you have to start back at the BEGINNING of a level gets very old, very fast. Do yourself a favor and pick up Gradius Generation (or possibly Iridion 2) if you want a good GBA shooter.

    A good idea ruined by a design team that tried to get too cute. This game would have been a classic if they worked the upgrade system on your craft's gunnery into your planetside firearm, and gave you, the character stats and upgradeables as well.
  2. An intriguing idea on paper, but the shooter and RPG elements just don't mesh that well. If the shooter side had more exciting, thumb-blistering action, it would have compensated for the rest of this dull package.

    The result, though a little awkward, is a hybrid with neither the depth of a true RPG nor the frenetic pace and art design of a pure-bred shooter. Both sides of the experience are fun, but less than stellar.
