Giga Wing 2 – Second Opinion

I wouldn't classify Giga Wing 2as an exquisite gem by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't think its a waste of the CD-ROM that it was burned on either. The game does try a few interesting things conceptually and while the overall success of the title is debatable, I still give Giga Wing 2 credit for the effort and I appreciated it more than Brad did.

Giga Wing 2 – Review

Giga Wing 2 is the latest in what most people today would classify as a rapidly dying breed—the genre most commonly known as "shooter." Reaching the height of their popularity during the late 80s and early 90s, shooters usually consisted of a spaceship or aircraft of some sort controlled by the player versus enough enemies to fill an arm of the Milky Way.

Giga Wing 2

Game Description: The heavens explode into intergalactic chaos in this classic arcade shooter for the Sega Dreamcast. The rebellion's savage forces have returned in an all-out campaign for universal domination. Pick your aircraft and prepare for high-tech dogfights, relentless enemy fire, fantastic power-ups, and devastating weapons such as the reflect laser and reflect force. Use the score multiplier to rack up astronomical high scores. Team up with three of your friends for an all-out, four-player simultaneous space battle to deliver the universe from the dark forces.

Giga Wing – Second Opinion

Like Ben, I was eager to get my hands on a mindless 2-D shooter like Giga Wing. It was supposed to be a welcome break from the huge involving RPGs I've been playing of late. I never intended to scrutinize Giga Wing too severely as I usually lower my expectations for arcade ports and this type of game in particular. That's what makes the game such a sad case—it only needed to be at least average to garner a positive review from me, and it couldn't even do that.

Giga Wing – Review

The generically titled Giga Wing—an overhead perspective, vertically scrolling airplane shoot-fest—is another console release in the same vein as Strider 2. Once again, Capcom is responsible (in this case I would call them the guilty party), only this time Sega's Dreamcast is the target.
