Project Sylpheed Arc of Deception (Xbox 360)
Seamus the Leprechaun here, blest blogger on the netherly gamer.
Despite it's release in Europe on June29th last and it's release today in the US, the number of reviews available for Project Sylpheed are worryingly scarce, methinks the critics are all too busy getting ready for E3 which starts today. Incidentally I wasn't invited, but I did get a hold of the conference timetable. oh well!! it wouldn't have been the same without the booth babes. Where was I? oh yes. . . . .
Project Sylpheed is 3-D makeover of the classic, mid-‘80s scrolling shooter franchise. As Katana Faraway (. . . i checked and yes that is his name), players must pilot a Delta Saber space fighter equipped with a highly customizable arsenal of weapons. In order to succeed, Katana must execute squadron commands and monitor their speed, shield, radar and weapons as they maneuver out of challenging situations and defend Earth against the evil ADAN forces.
Scoring 70% from just 3 reviews on Metacritic.com
Project Sylpheed is a very decent shoot-'em-up, full of spectacular set-pieces and blessed with tight controls, but it lacks real depth
This game ably fills a gaping whole in one of gaming's most pure and heady genres
If you like space shooters then Project Sylpheed is well worth a look
