3.0 out of 5 stars BlaZeon is really an acquired taste. May 12, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't know what I find about horizontal shoot em' ups I find so cool, I mean I love all types of game genres be it platformers, racing, adventure, survival horror, and shoot em' ups of ANY perspective are really fun, but horizontal shooters are just beautiful games in my heart. Why? Don't ask me, I still don't know! But I will say that it's hard for me to detach this love of horizontal shooters from my heart and why I found BlaZeon such a fun game despite some rather glaring design flaws.

Now I don't want to demonize this game because it has a few good things going for it. For one, your space ship can assume the role of mechs or robots in the game which enable you to use a lot of different attacks. Only problem is the game forces you to depend on these mechs in order to survive and sometimes the game only lets some of the best mechs on screen for a few seconds before disappearing.

Also, the game has a pretty cool soundtrack! It starts out okay, then it ascends into some of the funkiest space music I've ever heard in a game before plunging back to being just okay. Still, the middle part of the game is just rockin' I still can't believe no one ever lists this game as their favorite SNES game soundtrack.

The game has its issues though. For one, the graphics are good... not so much bad, just good, really. If anything, they REALLY should've avoided using the color pink both for the ship AND for the enemies, but that was the case for any shooter in the early 1990's. Then there's the pace. I don't know why, maybe it's the whole arcade porting process, but for some reason there are moments in the game that drag on for almost a minute straight with NOTHING happening. Why? Damned if I know.
