    A nice challenge and it certainly looks good in high definition, but it can become infuriatingly complicated during the later phases of each level. [Issue#155, p.88]
  2. If you have room in your heart for yet another Robotron clone, Super Stardust HD is a good addition to this well-worn genre.

    High-score hounds might find this one worth a look. For all intents and purposes it's a good game that delivers some solid twin-stick shooterHigh-score hounds might find this one worth a look. For all intents and purposes it's a good game that delivers some solid twin-stick shooter fun. However, now in a time where the genre has been dominated by the likes of the newest Geometry Wars this feels kind of bare.

    To be honest it kind of feels like a version of Geometry Wars where all of the maps are the same shape (spherical). Blasting you way through the levels and racking up that high-score is pretty fun and will likely get it's hooks into the more competitive players out there who want to get their name high on the leader-boards. For the rest of us there isn't enough content to keep us in it for the long haul.

    The cooperative modes do add some extra life to the package, but with only two single-player offering out of the gate that have the exact same levels it's up to the DLC to keep things going. Tossing out those extra dollars is only going to be worth it to those really into the game, especially given it's age.

    It's a good game. One with solid, arcade-style gameplay. If you like high-score hunting this is a good choice. Just keep in mind that it's light on content and has some age on it.

I put off buying it for the longest time because I expected it to be a bad attempt at geometry wars but it turns out it's even better. Also this is the only game I've tried so far that's worth playing in 3d, it still kills my eyes but it's really fun. Full Review »

    So good. So inmersive. Just beautiful. It´s amazing and completely fun. It´s one of the best modern dual stickSo good. So inmersive. Just beautiful. It´s amazing and completely fun. It´s one of the best modern dual stick shooters. Yes it only got 5 Maps and a handful of enemies and a couple of weapons but you get so much out of it. Full Review »
