Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s superb shooter is a treat for your senses. Each level the gameplay is cleverly mixed into the ever building soundtrack, which piques with a boss fight. A real highlight in the Dreamcast’s catalogue and certainly a culturally significant videogame.

Emulators tested

Demul (DirectX 10) – Game runs well and is quite playable, though does occasionally stutter. We played the Dreamcast original extensively so we can say with some authority that the sound emulation is not completely accurate. The music is fine but the sound effects sound off in places. Music and sound are absolutely integral to this game so it does spoil things a little. Still, it remains a very playable game and still highly recommended if you don’t have access to a real Dreamcast or the Xbox 360 version.
