    Better shooters are available for free on the web or for a small fee through Live Arcade. If you loved Scramble in 1981, then there might be something here worth looking at. Otherwise, you'd be much better off sticking with "Galaga" or "Geometry Wars."
  2. If you like twitchy old-style gameplay, Konami's Time Pilot port is a much better use of your 400 Microsoft Points($5). [Dec. 2006, p.76]
  3. While games like "Time Pilot" aged gracefully, this side-scrolling space shooter feels old and inflexible, a crusty gaming battleship dragged out of drydock. All you can do is stare and go, "Wow, that's old."
  4. The Live Arcade shoud be the home of great new franchises not tired old games like this. [Issue #16, p.73]
  5. Control isn’t that tight – in fact it seems very loose. Collision detection isn’t perfect as it seems that if you just breathe near a mountain you’ll crash into it.
  6. Pointless - for the two minutes you'll bother. [Nov 2006, p.107]
