  1. Most lamentable of all is the fact that the game's final boss is entirely nondescript. [Edge]
  2. 60
    Beautiful and inspired, but too short.

    As you can see, the negative reviews are complete baloney and make no good points about any supposed flaws in this game. In reality, this isAs you can see, the negative reviews are complete baloney and make no good points about any supposed flaws in this game. In reality, this is the king of rail shooters. It takes a ton of skill and practice to complete the game even on normal mode, and the mechanics are very deep. You have a lot more freedom to move and shoot than any other rail shooter out there, as you can pan the camera 360 degrees to shoot things all around you. You can even move around bosses, literally, to the front, sides, and back, as you please. Add to all this the ability to change dragon forms between 3 different dragons, and a complex leveling system, and you have a crazy gem of a game. There's absolutely loads of replay value here, too. Besides just trying to master the main game, you can unlock special scenarios and the original full Panzer Dragoon game that came out on the Sega Saturn. The only flaws the game has are just in figuring out how the heck to beat some of the bosses, but as this does add to the replay and challenge, it's really no big deal. With a beautiful shooter like Orta packaged with the original classic game, you have to give this game a high score. The effort they put forth is tremendous, and it shows. Full Review »
