    Fans of this genre will find a ton to love with Under Defeat HD. It really is a good shoot ‘em up game. Casual players will have to ask themselves if they are willing to pay $26.99 for this, but if you do; you’ll have a good time with it.

    The new, HD version of Under Defeat keeps intact the charm of the original game, but fails in bringing a touch of modernity that would have made the game a must-buy for the shoot'em up fans.

    With its crushing difficulty, simple mechanics and fan service extras, this is a brilliant package for shmup fans. It just doesn't have much for everyone else. [Issue#92, p.89]
  4. Too tough, very cool, not as good as Sine Mora. [Christmas 2012, p.97]

    As it goes, Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition is a solid shooter that I am happy was given the chance to come across to the UK and deliver gamers a good bit of challenging fun.

    This is not as fascinating as the last bullet hell shmups like Sine Mora or Akai Katana, but nonetheless with the HD remake of one of the final games of the late Dreamcast you’ll get an intense, but rather short arcade shooter.
