    A lot of bullet-hell fans have declared Akai Katana the best there is when it comes to the gameplay mechanics and especially love the slash-mode. I think I understand them, even though I'm not so sure I understand everything that's going on in this game. In slash, Akai may well be the most complex Shoot 'em Up there is.

    Intense shmup-ing but overpriced. [July 2012, p.107]

    This is more of the score attack goodness that Cave does best. [Issue#86, p.86]
