  • Summary: Psikyo's take on the classic conventions strike as true as most modern attempts, and the fans of such games should welcome the results.

  1. A classic arcade action game, which should appeal to both older gamers who remember this style of game with fondness, and younger players who may have never experienced this sort of simplistic joy before.

    For the budget price, this is a good shooter value, something to fill in the corners while you wait for Slug.
  3. It should go over well with fans of the genre--it's an altogether solid shooter, if a tad uninspired.
  4. Now imagine the whole game, from start to finish, lasting about 15 minutes -- even with limited continues. Oh dear.

    The game's a classic. Wow, so it lasts 15 minutes, Daily Radar. Now, take it off "Monkey" and try one of the harder settings. It's fun to pass time with, and besides, you COULD be playing "Beast Wars" or something. Collapse

    Despite common criticisms against Strikers 1945, Strikers is a very good game. Despite its lack of story, and its short game, Strikers manages to ace one aspect of a game that very few others can pull of: it was an extremely difficult game (One of the most difficult of all time, at that), yet it never tempted the player to quit mid-game. They managed to keep the difficulty at max while keeping the game playable, fun, and not frustrating. I would laugh at myself for running into that one bullet, or for not using my airstrike, and even if I get to the part where you have to restart the level, I would still continue playing without a second thought. Even at that, Strikers 1945 is a great way to test your flying skills and reaction time while keeping the mechanics pretty basic. All you have is your plane, your charge attack, your airstrike, and a crap-ton of enemies that are 10 times your size, and 10 times the difficulty. Expand
