    Psikyo's Samurai Aces plays a lot like its Gunbird and Strikers titles. As they were both great shmups, however, seven more levels in that style is no bad thing. Dealing with attacks and utilising your own offensive options leads to varied and enjoyable gameplay and the changing pace of combat keep you on your toes as you anticipate the next attack. With no credit/life limited mode included, the hi score leaderboard is flawed unless you and those using your Switch agree on what settings to use. It is a well put together shmup however, so whether playing alone or with a friend Samurai Aces is fun to replay whenever you choice to boot it up.

    Samurai Aces is a solid shmup that is sure to please fans of the genre. Personally, the game felt a bit too similar to previous title Gunbird - but then again, why fix what isn't broken? If you're after fast-paced, intense gameplay, look no further.

    Samurai Aces is a solid debut shmup from one of the most notable developers in the genre. It may be a bit too simplistic for some gamers' tastes but what's here does a good job of showcasing Psikyo's humble origins.

    Shoot'em up lovers will love this old-school game as well as lovers of eastern culture thanks to its constant references to Japan. Maybe it's not the best within its genre, but it's very entertaining and, above all, fun if you play co-op with a friend.
