    Taken in the recommended small doses, there's tons of play value in this 800 MS point title. Fans of classic shooters shouldn't pass up this opportunity to play one of the looniest and best examples of the genre.

    Another classic from Treasure and a game that hardcore fans shouldn't miss at any cost.

    Absolutely. Bangai-O is similar, but not quite like a typical arcade-style "bullet hell" shooter, since you have more effective ways of fighting back. So if that brand of insanity doesn't appeal to you, perhaps Bangai-O's will. Not to mention that it's better and cheaper than its DS predecessor.

    A superb action puzzle hybrid that works much better on the Xbox 360 than it did on the DS, making it one of Treasure's best ever games.

    One of the most gleefully insane titles to come along in a quite awhile. The amount of action on-screen at any given time is simply mind-boggling, with a steep learning curve to match. Especially great for small children, grandma, and the easily-frustrated. Full Review »
