    This is a great shooter, but not for everyone. Extremely steep learning curve and absurdly hardcore difficulty await you here, but there are rewards for the persistent. This is from a different era of games -- a shooter that could take years to master and doesn't hold your hand for a single second. Online co-op is also quite spotty -- very difficult to find a match, and when you do, your game may be filled with lag. If you've got patience, and you're not against the idea of replaying a single stage hundreds of times to master it, then you'll likely love this ultra hardcore gem from the golden era of shooters.

    A challenging, deep, and incredible shooter, well worth the required time it will take to become great at it (or even merely proficient). It's clear many people seem intent to punish the game with low review scores because they lack this patience, or don't understand what they're playing. Quite sad.

    Radiant Silvergun is a triumph and arguably one of the best (if not the best) game of its type available - on any platform.

    Radiant Silvergun is bewilderment and frustration at the same time. With excessive amount of weapons, breathtaking boss rushes, killer difficulty and a complicated combo system Radiant Silvergun is just too much - and awesome for that reason. [Nov 2011]

    The best thing in the space shooters genre, or – to be precise – the 'bullet hell' subgenre. [November 2011, p.83]
