Since there's not one up yet, I thought it might be helpful for people looking at this game to know roughly how it is set up

You start off as one of 3 friends who are torn apart by a civil war, with you and one other friend ending up on one side and the 3rd friend ending up on the other side, so you have to fly against your former friend. That's as far as the story side of it really goes as far as affecting gameplay. There are a ton of cut scenes that are very well done so at times this is more like watching a movie than playing a game. The down side to that is that the movie you'd be watching is your typical anime, so not everything makes sense and people frequently do things that look pretty but otherwise seem pointless

Ok, so as far as the gameplay itself goes, you're flying a fighter in space and the whole game is pretty much through your view of the HUD in that fighter. You have a very very small radar screen which is almost useless, but there will be on screen arrows and circles pointing out various important targets and objectives, so the radar screen is really not needed anyway

You have 4 weapons on your ship at any given time, most of which have a limited ammo capacity. You can select these weapons from a list of what's available to you before the mission starts, sort of like Wing Commander, if you've played that. If you run out of ammo during a mission, which never seems to happen except with your anti-ship missles, you can dock with your carrier and re-supply during the mission, then go back out

After the level ends, you'll be rated on how well you did, how much stuff you blew up and which objectives you achieved, then docked for friendly fire, and then given a points total.

Project Sylpheed: Arc of Deception will probably be one of the most under-appreciated Xbox 360 titles released this year. It came out in Japan about a year ago, but didn't release here in the states until the week of the annual Electronics Entertainment Expo. With the gaming community's attention at E3, Project Sylpheed's arrival has tragically gone overlooked.

An arcade-style action/shooter, PS:AoD takes place throughout several human-inhabitated solar systems during the 26th (or was it 27th?) century. To be honest, the details of the story aren't that memorable. The game opens with a surprise attack from rebel forces who have banded together to overthrow the supposedly tyrannical government that controls all but four of the human-settled planets in the galaxy. Katana Faraway is on a training mission in a prototype spacecraft called the Delta Saber when he and his squadron are overtaken by a swarm of enemies on their way to attack a major settlement. The story thus follows Katana and the two flights of Delta Sabers from the outset of war to its dramatic conclusion above Earth itself.

The story, which is fleshed out through over an hour of very well-done cutscenes, mostly just serves as a backdrop for the epic space battles that ensue. Each mission usually has two or three parts, and typically has you destroying a certain number of fighters or sinking an enemy flagship. There are also a number of hidden objectives in each mission (normally at least three or four), and are given to you through audio cues or just plain guesswork (i.e. destroy the enemy destroyer that's so far away you can barely see it).

I actually like it more than Ace Combat 6, and though they're two very different shooters, I think that tells a lot. The controls are good, the graphics are nice, and your fellow pilots are acceptably intelligent. The one thing that's missing is multiplayer. This is one game that would work perfectly with multiplayer online co-op or versus. I'm hoping they'll do a sequel with multiplayer.

If you downloaded the demo on Xbox marketplace and thought the mission was pretty hard, don't fret. The demo mission is one of the extra challenge missions in the add-on pack. The story missions don't start out that hard, and by the time you reach those missions, you have a much better arsenal. The difficulty is also adjustable.

Afraid because the critics reviewed it poorly? Don't trust those negative reviews. Trust the people who actually played the game for some time like us on Amazon and Metacritic.com's user reviews.

Definitely worth the $25 new from Amazon, and the other new/used deals on Amazon are a true steal. When you do get the game, don't forget to download the free extra challenge missions/leaderboard add-on from the Xbox marketplace.

At first I was taken aback by the cheap price. However, I took the risk since it was so cheap of a game and I have some faith in SE. First of all, the videos in the game are shockingly pretty and are very well done! The music was also awesome! It was a mix of techno with very action packed scenes with crazy stunt dog fighting.

The story was well written (as expected of SE) with a killer ending that's really worth the time invested to watch. The game has replay value so you can unlock the best weapons in the game and easily get all the achievements (24/24). The laser surfboard weapon was a personal favorite of mine until I found out that there is even more FREE content available for people with X-Box live accounts. Go into game marketplace and download the free expansion! The bonus stages are very tough, but if you manage to win even one of them you are rewarded with killer new weapons to play with at anytime you choose.

The only let down with this game are the controls are a pain in the neck to get used to, but they do work. The best part is that you can totally customize the entire controller to be as specific as you want it to be. I turned the controls into something you'd see in the game H.A.W.X. then I had an instant winner of a game with no fuss over controls.

Give this game a try, you won't be disappointed for your money's worth. It (in my opinion) is currently the best deal for an X-Box 360 game on Amazon.
