5.0 out of 5 stars I can't hold it! March 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
If your a fan of the "shoot em up" or shmup genre in which a lone pilot or two attempt to save the world/galaxy/universe from whatever threatens it, then your more than likely a fan of the Sega genesis and it's decent number of good 2D shmups. There's the Thunder Force series, Fire Shark, Twin Cobra and Truxton, Forgotten Worlds, Gaiares and Sol Deace just to name a few. But as far as options go it doesn't get much better than Vapor Trail. Known in Japan as Khuga: Operation Vapor Trail and succeeded by Wolf Fang and Skull Fang, this game was the first in an awesome series of games by the arcade masters over at Data East. The graphics are above average for a genesis game of the time, and the game utilizes a special sound engine for the game that allows for the digitized speech and an absolutely amazing music track, even though it's the only one, it's good enough for extended listening. You have a choice of three aircraft each with different starting weapons and stats, one that's powerful, one that's fast and one that's a balance of both. Get used to hearing "I can't hold it!" a lot, because even though your ship can sustain three hits before turning into nothing but a vapor trail, your still gonna die quite a bit at first. That being said, this is a game that is put together so well that your almost not gonna mind getting shot down a lot. The game employs a hybrid checkpoint system, basically if you make it to the two thirds or so point of the stage without biting it you'll start where you die, die before then and it's back to the start of the level. This is a game that is easy to get good at if your patient enough with shoot em ups or have any earlier experience with the genre. Overall Vapor Trail is an amazing genesis game and one that no self respecting shoot em up fan should be without.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Genesis Must Have September 20, 2014
Verified Purchase
For a Sega shooter the graphics are solid. As usual you get smooth game play even when you have upgrades and enemies are crowding the screen. No doubt this game has a higher level of difficulty than players are used to today. With that said when you hit sticking points you feel a good sense of satisfaction when you come back with a new strategy and move on. Deaths don't feel cheap and you'll probably need to do a little memorizing to beat it. I want terribly impressed with the sound but who cares it was passable and didn't distract from the rest of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun game but challanging September 6, 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a fun game but is challanging. I would rate it a 7 out of 10. The games first few levels make you think it's going to be a breeze. Than comes the levels that are hard. The only problem with this game is that it goes from too easy to really hard quick.
