  1. Ultimate Shooting Collection presents three recent examples of arcade shooters and is firmly targeted at fans of the "bullet hell" subgenre or just shooting fans who might want to see what's been happening in Japanese arcades in the past ten years. Whilst none of the games on their own is particularly special, it should definitely have a space on the shelf of any shoot-em-up fan.

    These games provide decent bullet hell experiences, but don't expect anything on the level of Ikaruga. It's disappointing more effort wasn't put into the presentation. The lack of leaderboards is a grievous error for a shooter released in 2009.
  3. For many casual gamers, scrolling shooters are something to play online for free when there's time to kill. It will take a little more dedication to spend $30 on this collection, especially considering that leaderboards, perhaps the only reason to play for long periods of time, aren't available. For those looking for a unique take on a genre and willing to pay for it, however, these three games are worth at least a rental.
  4. None of the games in the Ultimate Shooting Collection can hold their own against the true giants of the genre.
