4.0 out of 5 stars Old-school gameplay + new-school graphics = a winner December 28, 2000
In the modern day of 40+ hour RPG quests and multiple-input-command 3D fighting games, it's a rare thing to see a new release game that tests reflexes while being FUN. Thank you, Capcom, for Cannon Spike. This game reminds me of the old arcade shooter days, playing Galaga and Gyruss for hours just to get a higher score. Unlike your Resident Evils or Final Fantasies, there's not much of a story here. Robots invade, must kill robots. The shooting begins. You control a character (several are from Capcom classics, like Arthur from Ghosts N Goblins) who zips around the screen laying waste to anything that moves. You fight a sub-boss, then move to another part of the stage, then fight a Real Boss, using various weapons and spectacular power-ups (Mega Man rolls around the screen, damaging anything he touches) to save the day. The graphics are definitely modern, from the nice character animation to the convincing explosions and gorgeous arenas (in The Slope you run circles around a robot skier as you both careen down an icy mountain). The two-player mode can be used as a co-op effort or a mad competition for points and health power-ups. Completing the game opens a cool Capcom art gallery with conceptual sketches and other Cannon Spike stuff. Gamers used to 3D action-adventures won't find a lot to satisfy them here, but to me, there's nothing like taking a break from Soul Reaver or Code: Veronica to blow the heck out of robots with names like Bio Gorilla Bloody or Flying Saucer Kabuki. Length and depth take a back seat to old-fashioned fun with Cannon Spike, and I find it to be a refreshing change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun fun fun! March 16, 2001
I miss games like this. You know, the ones that take skill. The graphics are great (check out Mega Man!) and it's just fun to play. Those who play games to open up new costumes and characters will be disappointed since there really aren't any secrets, but that's not the point. Very few games are this easy to pick up, play and have a good time. Plus you can play with a friend! One of the best console shmups ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey...What's This? A Game That Requires Skill? December 30, 2000
Cannon Spike isn't about building up your characters, there's no five minute summons here, no collecting 100 pieces of fruit/coins/whatever, none of these characters are called Ryo Hazuki or Lara Croft, this isn't a sports game, and all your GameFAQS in the world can't help newbie gamers for what Cannon Spike is--old-school gaming madness. It is unbelievably refreshing to play a game that harkens back to the days BEFORE PSX, where the only thing that mattered was skill, not graphics (memories...*sigh*). Yeah, that's right, SKILL. S-K-I-L-L, skill. Cannon Spike is an absolute twitchfest. You're gonna need three things when playing this game: skill, reflexes and lots of skilled reflexes. This ain't Metal Gear Sorry, thank you very much, this is a game that requires actual skill, something that is lost in many of today's games (or--in the case of Game Shark users, continue button mashers and EGM--today's "gamers"). But I'm a jaded gamer, and I'm gonna rant about the flaws first. My biggest complaint would be the music. Yes, this hard-core gamer doesn't really care for game music (WHY should I? I listen to real music [Nine Inch Nails], thank you very much). That doesn't mean there aren't exceptions though (Final Fantasy IX, anyone?); but this just isn't one of them--the "music" is extremely forgettable (the one thing Capcom has yet to do right: music). And my next complaint would be...uh, wait a second...other than the music, there ISN'T anything wrong with the game! Yes, I said it before, and I'll say it again, this game is amazing. There seems to be some complaining about the game's length though (the previous reviewer would be one). Yeah, 15 minutes is all it takes to beat the game. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes 3D and old school just doesn't mix ! August 30, 2001
I have seen numerous previews in the past about Cannon Spike for the Sega Dreamcast. While taking a look at the screen shots, I always imagined how much fun it would be when it releases. When it finally released, I kept missing my chances of getting the game until finally I got it for myself. When I played it, I was into the shooting action and the seamless 3D graphics and animation, and then it happened. After shooting a few guys down, I have already found myself fighting the boss of the stage...and the boss was too easy. All you had to do was give it a few close range heavy attacks and a few shots and the boss is dead. Now that is sad. The levels are just too short. I WANTED MORE !!!!! I don't care if there's 10 levels. They're just too darn short ! The more you play through each level, the more disgusted you'll become. The music to this game is just plain repetitive. Some of them sound like they've been pulled off a 16-bit game or something. The voice acting is horrible. Believe me, even Japanese voice actors have their moments of crappiness. Mega Man's voice is great, but everyone elses voice sounded too stupid. And another weird element to this game are the jet powered skates. Huh ? Now this is getting weirder and weirder each time I play. Who whould use heavy artillery with some blades on ? That's what I want to know ! Here's a thought, use your shoes, boots, or whatever the heck you wear everyday. On the bright side, the graphics are cool. Seeing Mega Man dominate in full 128-bit technology was a blast, including the characters like Cammy, Arthur, Simone, B.B. Hood, and Shiba. The character's special abilities look great. They almost look like one of those beams from Dragon Ball Z. The controls are similiar to that of various old school shooters like Raiden, 1941, Gunbird, and more. Read more ›
