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.

I know this has been pointed out in other reviews but I figured I'd throw my opinion into the ring. This game stinks. I hate to say that because I love the Gradius Series this is based on.

Pros:
It has the same basic Gradius features but tuned in a little in that you can level up certain upgrades.
The characters are half nude and total stereotypes of Asian women. I kinda like this art style so im guilty of enjoying this aspect of the game.
You can't lose. You just simply continue you're way through the game.

Cons:
You can't lose. Seriously though, I mean I like to see the ending of games but serious this is kind of whack, makes you feel like you haven't accomplished anything.
Super easy intro achievements. You get an achievement for simply playing as a character, so for 40 points you literally have to do nothing.
DLC is way out of line, the cost is sky high.
I couldn't figure out what was background and foreground elements. These were not distinguished well and it sucks. Keep in mind that dying once in a level basically dooms you this is super annoying.
Hard as heck to see bullets lots of the time. This should never happen in a game like this.
Upgrade system takes forever to achieve power. Don't expect to be playing much of the game knocking things out left and right, a majority of the game you'll be shooting 2 bullets at once, no joke.
Finally, WTF is up with the bosses but giving up? If you get hit once during a boss battle ur screwed as you'll never power up again and so the battle is essentially over and the boss will flee after 3 mins.

Overall score: whack

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!

I bought this for the simple reason that I like scrolling shooters, ever since I was a child at the Arcades, and have specifically enjoyed the "Manic Shooter" games over the years. I've played the big names of R-Type and Gradius, and have also played and own many others, from multiple sequel releases like Contra, Raiden, Dodonpachi, Touhou Project and Metal Slug, to those that are unique releases or only have a single sequel like Einhander, Gunstar Heroes, Space Harrier, Ikaruga, Tyrian, Sin and Punishment, and Deathsmiles. I've played enough of these games to have a good reference of what makes them great, and what should be better.

This game says right on the box that it was inspired by the Gradius series, but that's not quite accurate. This is a game series that is actually a parody of Gradius, just like Parodius, a previous parody series that was also produced by Konami. This is somewhat obvious by the ship design and the fact that all the pilots you can play are members of the St. Gradius Academy. The game certainly does have that daunting feeling I've found in the Gradius games of being a tiny ship trying to take down an enemy space fleet. For those who've never played these types of games, try to picture your self in a canoe with mines limiting your maneuverability to a tight lane that changes shape while avoiding a ship the size of an aircraft carrier surrounded by battleships, destroyers, and other canoes that move in various predetermined paths based on your position. In addition, all of those ships are trying to take you out, and you have to avoid their fire while returning your own and picking up new weapons as the drop from enemy ships you've just destroyed.
