1.0 out of 5 stars From a long-time shmup fan, this game is garbage. October 24, 2012
By Steve
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Im a longtime fan of shmups. R-Type, Gradius V and U.N. Squadron, 1943 and the more recent DeathSmiles and Akai Katana are some of my faves. After months of procrastinating I finally caved and bought this game. What a disappointment. Here's why:

1) In every shooter one of the most important things is to make sure the player can tell the difference in foreground/backgrond graphics, as well as being able to clearly see enemy bullets. OE does an amazing job of ruining that concept- objects that look like youll crash into you'll go right through and vise versa, and enemy bullets are so hard to see against the bright backgrounds its impossible to tell whats going on.
2) Unlimited continues from the get-go and bosses that "run-away" after 3 or 4 minutes makes no sense. I just beat the game on a 2nd play-through doing this before writing this review. All you have to do is hit Start to continue when needed and you can beat the game just like that.
3) Voice acting. Its fine for some games but this in particular its like they got some 10 year old girl with the highest pitched voice to squeak out dialogue. There is a TON of chatter throughout the game and it doesn't let up much at all. I turned it all the way down, only to find out that when you die there's no voice going "ahhh!!" anymore, but there's no explosion sound to signify i got hit. Your character just slowwwwwwwwly falls toward you then off-screen to the left.
4)Your main gun shoots two bullets on screen at once. Two bullets. Thats it. Good luck trying to defeat a boss if this ever happens. (Oh wait! Just refer to #2, silly me!).
5)I paid just $12 for the disc (still a rip-off) but apparently there are 25 pieces of paid DLC.

2.0 out of 5 stars Konami blew it August 2, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
They totally blew it in a bad way. Instead of bringing us a souped-up Gradius or a crazier/zanier Parodius, we get this weird game. Now, I'm not completely against the idea of making more side-scrolling shoot-'em-ups, as they are not as popular as the vertical scrollers, but this one is definitely not representative of what is best about the genre. To add insult to injury, you end up feeling like you bought "part" of the game because of all the damn DLC they tried to shank their customers with: You have to download certain levels, download characters, download this, download that... what a buncha crap. The graphics aren't all that great either, sort of a mix of 2D and 3D - I hate 3D - and I can't recall the music at all. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone. I only got it because it was free with "rewards points" from my credit card and I'm a bit of a completist. Am I glad I didn't shell out for the import copy.

Bollocks to your DLC, Konami!

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, in every sense of the word. January 1, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Otomedius is a horizontally scrolling shooter which touts itself as the successor to Konami's classic Gradius series. While it shares many of the base gameplay features as this legendary series, it unfortunately suffers many problems which results in a very mediocre experience.

Just to name a few, due to the size of your player character on the screen, it can become extremely difficult to correctly gauge your hitbox, especially on the harder difficulties when the screen is full of projectiles.
While the 2-D artwork which permeates the game is well done, the actual 3D models used within the game itself are very lackluster. This becomes especially apparent during times when the game zooms in during cutscenes.
The multiplayer aspect of the game is also a disappointment. The game does not allow for two people to play together in the normal "Story" mode of the game. Rather, the only way to play with friends is in a specific "Multiplayer" mode, where the second player is not able to gain experience, and no continues are allowed. So, you are completely out of luck if you want to just play the normal game with a friend.
The boss fights in the game can also be a source of frustration. While the bosses are not too difficult, they tend to have an unusually high amount of health, and it is a near impossibility to hit some of their weak points without using certain specific weapons. As a result, many of the weapons available to you are largely worthless, as it is nearly impossible to defeat the bosses using them before you run out of time.

While each of these complaints, when taken alone, are not horrendous faults, the fact that so many minor poor game design choices exist at once just makes the game seem amateurish.

3.0 out of 5 stars Come on, folks. It's 6 bucks! March 12, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
It's $6. Even if the game is terrible, it's $6 so who cares. One more game in your library, heck, buy 2 and use the other to put under a wobbly chair.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. It's alright. March 30, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Decent 2D shoot-em-up. Has lots of fanservice, and not a whole lot else.
Not a bad game, but you can do a lot better. For games in this category, I would reccomend the Touhou series

1.0 out of 5 stars AWEFUL GAME March 13, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Nothing like gradius. This game is gibberish, and I hate it. You get around 7 REALLY easy achievements, by picking each ship, and hitting start, but that's it's only redeeming quality. This was not made for the american market, complete garbage!!!! BUYER BEWARE!!!!
