    As pure an arcade game as you can find in 2016. This game is highly addictive. This game had me chasing high scores for weeks. The sprite tsunami that is Score Rush runs butter smooth on my PS4. The soundtrack will continue to play in your head days after your last game, and thats not a bad thing. Control is key in a bullethell shooter(or any game imo), and this game has it down. 10/10.As pure an arcade game as you can find in 2016. This game is highly addictive.

    I seem to have a love/hate relationship with this game. I love the frenzied gameplay and music but I hate that I plateaued quite soon with the game. On the Normal Score Rush setting there is certainly a learning curve but in time I was able to complete the game. After playing the game for 7 hours or so over the course of a week this was the only game setting I could complete. The ExpertI seem to have a love/hate relationship with this game.

After playing the game for 7 hours or so over the course of a week this was the only game setting I could complete. The Expert difficulty proved too challenging as did the Boss setting and having dual ships. The options/help menu is useful and I recommend setting all enemy bullets to one color. Learning when to use the bomb (get 3 of them per play) and manuevering after eliminating enemies that cause a screen shake (gives temporary invincibility) are key as knowing how to orienate your trailing orbs (unlike the firing power-ups the trailing orbs disappear when you get hit). I like that the game heavily values speed as eliminating enemies faster gets more points and gives you some strategy. Most of the trophies are attainable. As the game's description describes there are no scoring gimmicks which I also appreciate (incredibly my score of 192,000,000 was far outmatched by the leader at the time of this review on the Score Rush - Normal by more than 150,000,000 points). Having never really partaken in the arcade shooter type game I wasn't sure if I'd have fun playing this but I certainly did. Just be wary that this game gets very difficult very quickly in all modes other than Score Rush - Normal. Expand

    Love this game. It looks like it's running at a smooth 60fps. Super challenging. Hard to put down since I want to keep trying to beat my old score. The action is intense!

    The stripped back mechanics and simplified gameplay might not be for everyone, but few shooters manage to appeal to both a Western and Japanese audience while somehow delivering an experience that is as fun for the casual gamer as it is for the hardcore.

    It may not have a ton of content for players looking for variation, but if you embrace what Score Rush Extended offers, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding enjoyment.

    This game is made for score-obsessed fans of shoot em ups, and endless runners only.
