I can't recommend this game enough if you are a fan of shmups. The graphics, music, controls and atmosphere are top notch. Although I love shoot em ups, I am not very good at them, but I feel that while difficult, it's not overly so in the early stages. I hope to see more games of this quality for the Dreamcast.
Sturmwind is an outstanding shooter for the Dreamcast that features amazing, graphics and level design and the music and sound effects are really good! Sturmwind is the best Indie shooter ever made for the Dreamcast and it's definitely a triple AAA quality game!
The play is tight. The challenge good. And, I have not played something that reminds me as much of Ikaruga or Radiant Silvergun in a while.
Duranik and Redspot games have a real winner here. This game competes with some of the best SHUMPs out of Japan. Games of this quality again make me proud to be a Dreamcast owner.
It's incredible to play a 2013 game, designed for the Dreamcast, a game console discontinued in 2001. Sturmwind has high prodution values: great graphics, sound and gameplay. It even supports the vga cable! Amazing job Duranik!
