    One of the better games on Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA), is addictive, funny, hard, is an interesting mode to do an amazing game. With great graphics, good controls, interesting story, and more, Omega Five is a clasic.

    This is one of the best shooters to come in a long long time. With the exception of Cave's bullet hells, Omega Five is an exceptional piece that should be noticed. Not sure where 1UP is coming from with their review. Maybe they just aren't schmup fans.

  1. Playing with a buddy in same-screen co-op is your best bet to enjoyably sate your shooter lust. [Holiday 2007, p.70]
  2. It’s pure, old-school, side-scrolling action wrapped up in a gorgeous visual package. The game will certainly appeal to fans of the genre, even if they are left scratching their collective heads after trying to make sense of it all.

    Omega Five is pretty but shallow. It's the trophy wife of XBLA games. That doesn't mean it isn't fun for a little while, but it's ultimately not among the top-tier Arcade titles.
