    A fantastic overhead shooter with mind-blowing graphics. A mixture of 3-D backgrounds with 2-D gameplay. A true space-shooter for the next generation.

    Far better than you'd expect a revival to be, though -- light though it may be on design innovation, it's an extremely slick production in every other aspect.
  2. While the game is enjoyable enough for a short romp, and the weapon selection offers a bit of replay value, I can't imagine why I would want to play this game in a month, let alone in a year.
  3. The graphics are superb. Rather than attempt to hypnotize you with psychedelic patterns of bullets, this game has a slower pace that actually allows you to take in your surroundings, an apparent breakthrough when put up against other recent shooters. The backdrops are luscious and feature textures so detailed that you probably don't have enough rods and cones in your eyes to appreciate them.
