    This is an essential buy for all the shoot'em'up aficionados who are in their thirties, and a nice little collection for all the other gamers. It's just a pity that there are no extras of sort included in the digital version.

    In terms of gaming history this collection is actually reasonably interesting, but it is not top quality throughout.

    Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo gathers the two Gundbird and Samurai Aces series into one friendly compilation. The danmaku genre is much more present here than in the previous Alpha version, which is a real plus for fans. Too bad the game still lacks real display and tutorial options once more.

    In terms of the quality of its games, Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo is a slight notch below Alpha but it's still great to have 6 classic titles in 1 convenient collection. It's just too bad that it's missing any supplementary content.

    It’s not as good as Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha, but Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo is still an interesting proposition for shoot ’em up fans. It’s expected, what with this collection launching so quickly after the first, that it doesn’t do anything to address its predecessor’s shortfalls, but it’s still a little disappointing. If you’re after yet more shoot ’em ups to add to your ever-growing Switch collection and don’t mind the lack of extras, go ahead and jump right in. Most will probably want to wait for a decent sale though.

    In some ways, Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo is as disappointing as Alpha: it doesn’t feature save states, online leaderboards, or any historical materials. Other than having them all in one place, you don’t really get anything extra when buying these shooters as a package, rather than individually. You might save a couple bucks purchasing all six games at once, but the better play might be to just pick and choose your favourite ones. Ultimately, Shooting Stars Bravo is a decent compilation that is disappointingly barebones, even if it can provide a pretty good time.
