    This game hits the mark on old fashion shooters brought into the new 3d world. With large, beautiful airships and a classical touch this game This game hits the mark on old fashion shooters brought into the new 3d world. With large, beautiful airships and a classical touch this game rekindles our love for shooters. With old fashion designs mixed with modern imagery this Miyazaki's (Princess Mononoke/Nausicaa Valley of the wind) finest work. From Destroying squadrons of aerial warships to tiny fighters this game would be perfect but yet has its small flaws. The worse flaw is the slowdown you might run into during the heavy full screen action where the battle is most intence, the slowdown doesn't last long but can throw you off your key sometimes. Second is the shortness of the game with 5 stages per charcter. Although you play thru each character thru basically the same stage, each play a different role (eg. destroy flagship or destroy the fighters). Other than these two main flaws the game is extremely challenging and an anime brought to life. Fans will love the opening sequence song and will definately love the optional japanese voice overs with english subtitles. So if your looking to bring an anime to life this is the game you should seek. Prizes are also given for top scores on the official site. Great Job for bringing over such a great title Atlus.
