Really? You thought it was that bad? I only have an hour or so invested in it, and yeah it's no CAVE but I didn't think it was a total turd or anything. My main issue, and I think somebody else mentioned this in another topic, is the bullets can be a little hard to see. They need to go with bright pink or purple
That would be me.
It is definitely a welcomed Gradius due to Gradius 6 being cancelled. I did find the game easier with the customized ships, and the Gravity laser. My only issue, are the bullets blending into the background. I've watched a couple people complete the game on youtube, and the thing I noticed the most, is that they got 2 speed ups, then they got shield. The other thing I didn't like, is some of the bosses, they had surprising effects that others didn't have.... like the second boss just running across, wiping you out. Gradius never had a "replay to beat the boss" kind of thing before, and with the lack of powerups and whatnot after you die... its just not very welcome in the game.
Saying that, it is fun, its a Gradius game... but it has a lot to be desired. Gradius IV and Gradius V were much, much better.
