Okay I'm starting.
I have played at many many many Shoot'em-Up in my gamer's life...
Some of them become real legends (R-Type), some of them where exceptionnal (Raiden 2), some of them where the real fun (Parodius)... but after all those many years of playing, my all time favourite one is always the same: AXELAY (1992 - konami - snes)
This shoot is simply the best of the best in my mind
- Incredible graphics (pseudo 3D top scroller & classic 2D design)
- Incredible SoundTrack (I really insist on this point, this game have one of the best soundtrack of all the shoot history, 99% the music are marvelous (especially level 5)
, for me, this soundtrack is as good as Turrican 2...)
- Excellent gameplay
- Looooooong huge level
- Famous boss
- Great weapons
- Not too easy, not too hard, just perfect.
If you have never played to this game, you should really try it.
I'm sure you can't be disapointed. (at least if you love Shoot'em-Up)
