    Magnificent controls. [Issue#96, p.100]

    It's rare to expect a game of this quality to make the transition from the Arcade to the iPhone so smoothly, but ESPGALUDA II has lost nothing from the 2005 classic.

    Espgaluda II is a beautiful, well-developed port for the iPhone and the best 2D vertical shooter I've ever played. It's breathed new life into a stale, complacent genre and raised the bar for other 2D scrolling shooter developers.

    Arcade mode captures the arcade game and various other versions, such as the Xbox Live release, perfectly.

    Through Cave's uncompromising vision, Espgaluda II manages to squeeze one of the most frenetic, frenzied and thoroughly enjoyable shooters onto iPhone without sacrifice. That should, without hesitation, be fervently embraced.

    A classic that arrive on iPhone with a shiny vest and perfectly balanced gameplay. Probably the best shoot'em up to date on the Apple device.

    Vibrant visuals, great arcade sound, touchscreen native gameplay that's smooth and enjoyable, and even achievement and leaderboard integration via OpenFeint all combine to make this a must grab for those with a shmup-ish itch to scratch on the go.

    If you own an iPhone 3GS and are a fan of the manic shooter - go buy this game right now. If you are a general shooter fan and feel that you're up to facing the dense and constant volleys of enemy fire that this type of shooter brings - go buy this game right now.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Espgaluda 2. Sure, it's pretty mindless arcade fair, but the craziness to it all makes for an exciting ride.

    Espgaluda II is a surprise bit of fun that works much better than expected. It takes a big visual hit, which is disappointing.

    While not everyone can try Espgaluda 2 for themselves, if you own an iPhone 3GS and love shooters, this one's worth your attention.
