    Super Hydorah is more than a revival of the classic shoot 'em up games. Locomalito and Gryzor87 made one of the most important Spanish games of recent years, a love letter to the classics, but also a great stand alone game. Super Hydorah is fun, hard and is not too long, but is one of the freshest and funniest experiences that you can experience on Xbox One.

    Super Hydorah is a contemporary 'shmup' perfect for the lovers of the 16-bit genre. A good title and a love letter to the fans of horizontal scrolling stellar battles, which will find in it a great variety of scenarios, enemies and bosses, who will not make it easy to achieve the objectives.

    A classic fun shoot´em up, which brings back memories from R-Type, darius and Gradius, and offers great multiplayer and replayability. On the downside, it´s not too long and difficulty is not always well balanced.

    This is a great shoot 'em up you shouldn't miss if you like the genre. A great example of how to make a game challenging and rewarding.

    Hard, stylish and high in replayability. Too bad for the occasional slowdowns in an otherwise excellent shooter.

    Simply put, Super Hydorah is a must-buy game if you're a hardcore retro shoot 'em up fan. That being said, it certainly lacks wide appeal due to its insanely high difficulty so if you don't fit that description then it's sure to frustrate.

    Super Hydorah is sold on the premise that it is a challenging opponent. I have no issues with that – but you need to be sure this is a game for you before you drop that all-important cash.
