Cannon Spike – Review

Cannon Spike proved to be a good time for a short while thanks to the two-player mode, but it cannot escape the limitations of being an arcade port. Generic enemies, bosses and environments might have made the game progressively unenjoyable, but insufficient continues and a steep difficulty curve made it unbearable relatively quickly. It's amazing that after I set my sights low, expecting nothing more than a fun multiplayer experience, Cannon Spike still managed to disappoint.

Cannon Spike – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Cannon Spike – Second Opinion

I think my main problem with the game is that it doesnt take enough chances. The arcade-style retro approach that the game takes is strikingly different from most games currently on the market, but the designers never exploit it in any remarkable way.

Cannon Spike

Game Description: Battle a group of terrorist robots as one of seven characters from popular Capcom games, like Mega Man and Cammy. Other familiar characters include Charlie from Street Fighter, Arthur from Ghosts 'n' Goblins, and B.B. Hood from the DarkStalkers series. New characters include Shiva, an ex-snowboarding champion, and Simone, a fencing champion. The action-shooter gameplay contains both shooting and hand-to-hand combat, and features an isometric view. Players fly around by using "motor boots," and strategically avoid enemies' projectile attacks while counterattacking.

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 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.

Onimusha: Warlords

Game Description: Set during the medieval period, Onimusha: Warlords is a survival horror game that puts you in the difficult position of having to save a kidnapped princess from the evil General Nobanaga. Enter Nobanaga's castle and use a variety of blade weapons as well as the Demon's Head, which acts as both a shield and a weapon, against his foul minions. More than just fighting, Onimusha: Warlords presents a number of puzzles that must be solved if you're to get to the princess. The game also boasts both real-time polygonal backgrounds and characters.

Onimusha: Warlords – Second Opinion

While I don't entirely agree with Brad's review of Onimusha, Im not exactly going to dispute much of it either. His points are for the most part valid. I just wasnt as annoyed or bored by Onimusha as he was (or at least not as quickly as he was).
