Deathsmiles Limited Edition comes with game, music CD and faceplate for the older Xbox 360. Deathsmiles is a old school 2-D side scrolling shooter with five characters to choose from Windia, Casper, Follett, Rosa and Sakura to explore Gilverado. Choose your own route via a map after finishing each stage. You can choose different difficulty levels from one to three. The different difficulty levels allows you to customize the bullet count and boss toughness. I was surprised to see there was a online two-player and co-op play option via Xbox LIVE. You can also save replays of your own games if you like to watch them later. You can also download the top 20 scoring runs on the leaderboards and see how you match up against the best players. There are six different versions of the game. The original arcade game,version 1.1 and xbox 360 specific version. There are two different versions of each. In the MBL version there is one extra playable character and one extra level.

All things said and done this is a must have if you are a fan of side scrolling shooter. Even if your not a big fan of these type games you will love this game. I just can't say enough good things about how fun the game is and how hard it is at some points when you crank up the difficulty level to 999. The game did make me think of the game Ikaruga but it is a up and down shooter instead of side scrolling shooter but both are a lot of fun. Bottom line is if you like side scrolling shooters or not you will be pulling your hair out when playing Deathsmiles on it's hardest level.

This game is very short, but super fun and has a high replayibility factor. I was not able to test the online multiplayer, which seems pretty dead. This is an Xbox 360 port of a popular Japanese arcade game. While the faceplate is charming, it is useless for anyone who does not have an original model Xbox 360. It's also hit or miss if the faceplate you get fits snugly on the front of your console. Remember to take the old faceplate off if you have an original Xbox 360 and plan to use it.

There's 5 playable characters who all have their own unique fighting styles, and you fight through 6 stages in any order you want until you go to the last and final stage. In some game modes there's an extra stage that is very difficult. The highest difficulty of the game introduces bullets that explode from destroyed monsters that you need to eat with each character's given familiar, which acts like an "option" for those in tune with shmup lingo.

Deathsmiles is a shoot 'em up arcade game from Japan that has been ported to Xbox 360. The basic premise is very simple: you choose one of four "angels" who fly around, dodge bullets, and use magic to destroy a variety of Halloween-themed monsters. Single player and co-op modes are available.

The game is suitable for players of all skill levels due to selectable difficulty before most stages and unlimited continues. Deathsmiles is short, taking about 25-40 minutes from beginning to end, but it also has high replay value due to the variety of characters, game modes, and difficulty settings available. Plus you can try unlocking the achievements, beating the game without continuing, and climbing the online leaderboards.

The hand-drawn artwork and soundtrack are quite enjoyable, the controls are very responsive and precise, and the game is pure joy to play. Don't miss out!

Also, for arcade purists, Cave and Aksys are working on a patch that will make the game's deliberate slowdown (during hectic sections) more closely mimic the original arcade game.

If you grew up playing old school 2D shoot 'em ups like I did and hate to see that Japan is getting all the new old school games then you'll be happy with this U.S. release of Deathsmiles. It features side scrolling 2D action with very tight controls. Designed by Cave, modern "bullet hell" masters. This game even on harder settings didn't feel too difficult. You'll want to play through the various game types more than once - which is needed if you want to unlock the various Achievements. The bonus soundtrack and faceplate is a nice touch since this limited edition retails for less than more new releases.

A great shooter that apparently no one bought.
Shame too it's about gothic lolitas destroying everything and the game is pretty darn hard (I mean you can beat it in 20 minutes even if you're terrible at games but if you want a good score, you have to never die).

The game is great and the bonus sound track + faceplate are pretty sweet extras. Really good shmup with a great art style.

On another note the limited edition box is somewhat flimsy and can easily be crushed. Amazon packaged mine with 3 other larger/heavier items I had purchased the same day without using any protection :P. End result the box looks like its been stepped on pretty disappointed. Hopefully my other orders are packaged better.

Game is okay at best if you are looking to purchase might want to look up gameplay videos to make sure your style of game. As for me it was good for what it is but not my cup of tea.

This is like an old-school arcade game with a japanese anime theme attached to it! I really love this game, and the face plate was an added bonus. The only complaint I had with this game is that it only take about an hour to beat the entire thing. Otherwise it is a great game.
