5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Shoot 'em Up on the PS3 October 11, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Super Stardust HD is the first download game I purchased from the PSN Store over 2 years ago and it remains my most played PSN title. The reasons will be apparent to anyone who gives SSHD 5-minutes of playtime - amazingly refined controls, bright graphics, intense gameplay and a sky-high fun factor.

Instead of a traditional side-scrolling shooter, SSHD is a top-down shooter that takes place in orbit over various planets. Moving your ship in any direction is possible though ultimately you're just moving around the planet. Think Geometry Wars but with a larger scrolling map.

The objective of the campaign is to clear each planet of asteroids and other various types of enemies, ultimately fighting and end-boss and moving on. Various other game modes are available including Endless, where you keep destroying asteroids and enemies until you die; and a co-op multi-player mode is available for purchase as separate DLC.

Asteroids come in 3 varieties: rock, ice and gold. At your disposal are 3 different weapons which as you may guess specialize in destroying the different types of asteroids. As you destroy asteroids power-ups are dropped making your weapons stronger individually. Leveling up your weapons is key to surviving later levels where the action is intense and the entire screen full of asteroids and enemies. As you destroy large asteroids they break apart into smaller meteorites which spin-off in random directions. SSHD is a game that definitely takes advantage of the PS3s particle effects processing power, filling the entire planet atmosphere with spectacular effects and showering sparks from your weapons as you destroy enemies and asteroid alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stardust is Super! October 9, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a very addictive and fun game. If you liked geometry wars you will like this game.

The game plays like a modern Asteroids, you have one ship with a gun that you control with the right analog stick and shoot rocks to protect the planet you are in. once you hit these rocks they break apart into smaller rocks and so on and so forth. Inside some of these rocks you get bonuses, like weapon upgrades, points, bombs and 1ups. You have 3 different guns, a regular rock crusher (green colored), and Gold Melter (red colored) and Ice Splitter (blue colored). Each of these weapons are designed to take out specific obstacles, you use the green one for rocks the red one for ships and gold rocks blue for ice and far obstacles. You also have a rechargeable boost which moves your ship a short distance away from your location while protecting you from the obstacles. There are no life bars, once you get hit once by a rock a ship or incoming fire, you lose a life, unless you find a shield, which will only protect you once from a hit.

Obviously the point of the game is to survive as long as you can, the longer you stay alive you get a points multiplier. There are 5 different planets, each with different obstacles, enemies and a boss fight at the end of the level. The levels are shaped spherically; you control the ship around the outside of entire planet in any direction dodging and shooting rocks and incoming fire. You cannot control the ship to get closer to the planet or further from it, you always stay at the same distance away from the planet.

You can play the game in arcade mode or play each individual planet so long as you unlock it by defeating it. You can also adjust the level of difficulty on the game, to easy and normal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Geometry Wars but better October 8, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This shoot em up game is one of the most intense, addicting games I've played this generation. It plays like Geometry Wars but you are on a three-dimensional surface, a globe, so you can infinitely run away or chase down enemies/debris in any direction. The game makes use of multiple weapons which can be upgraded by picking up powerups dropped by debris. The weapons are element based and destroy certain debris quicker depending on the weapon you use (for instance, Gold Melter quickly blasts away gold). There are various enemies and bosses for each level, and the game has so much replayability. There are many modes including Planet, Arcade, a multiplayer mode, Endless, Survival, and more. This game is easily worth the $10 or so it costs and will keep you reaching for higher scores and trophies for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fact-paced, intense, non-stop action! October 7, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you have a PSN account, there is no reason not to get this game. Buy it. Now. Seriously!

This game is a classic arcade-style shooter. All you have to do is survive a constant barrage of asteroids, explosives and enemies by blasting your way through it. You have four weapons at your disposal, and you get an assortment of power-ups throughout each level. That's pretty much it. The result is a severe, nonstop blast of action that you won't be able to put down.

The sound effects are top-notch. If you have a surround sound system, it's pure gaming bliss, especially if you turn it up LOUD! The HD visuals are fantastic. The music is wonderful, exciting and atmospheric. I can't say enough great things about this downloadable gem. Get it now! There's also a PSP version of it called Super Stardust Portable. 5 stars!
