    The game is the best shoot 'em up title for the PS4 right now followed by it's predecessor Ginga Force. AAA quality,rock solid 60 frames per second, ultra responsive controls and brain melting side scrolling action. Natsuki Chronicles is very challenging, some are going to have a hard time beating the game's easy difficulty, difficult but not cheap or unfair.
    The only reason I don't give

    The only reason I don't give a 10 is because the game sometimes will crash with error CE-34878, it happens when launching it from the home screen or when pressing x to skip a cut scene, it doesn't crash during game play (so far).
    I will change my review to a solid 10 if the issue gets fixed and I hope so because the game is a true masterpiece!

    In some ways, Natsuki Chronicles is a slight thing. It’s certainly not going to be the game that makes people who never play shoot-em-ups reconsider that stance, nor is it the sort of thing that you’re likely to devote months of play to unless you have a burning desire for a new shooter and this is the extent of your options in that regard. However, there’s nothing wrong with it being slight in that regard. What the game seeks to do, it accomplishes well and with aplomb, missing some minor technical issues with its presentation. And it certainly has more than enough content to keep you engaged as you challenge higher difficulties, grinding your stage level up for a little more defense, trying to earn up the credits for a new primary weapon. So it’s a little thing, but it’s a fun little thing. That’s what it wants to be, and it deserves good marks for aiming at a simple target but hitting it with notable skill.

    I’m often horrible at these types of games, finding that the skill jump from easy to medium to be too much of a challenge but I found Natsuki Chronicles fares as a good starting point for beginners. In saying that, this game isn’t easy either and will require a ton of play-throughs of the same level, especially the later ones and on higher difficulties, to best determine which weapon types work the best and also your strategy. But even so, fans of the bullet hell genre should most definitely add this game to their library.

    Natsuki Chronicles is a great shmup that was clearly developed by shmup fans. The game has a refinement to it that eases any pain points someone might have had with other titles in the genre. The accessibility of the systems and constant rewards creates a challenging but approachable experience. The only setback is a few hard-to-spot enemies and a frame drops, but you’ll probably be having too much fun to notice.
