A classic reborn
Gradius V manages to relive the feeling of the nes shooting classics, adding great graphics and an even more refined gameplay.

Like a 2D game, in a good way!
This thing looks amazing, and though it's all in 3D, it controls every bit as sharply and precisely as a 2D game, something I could not say e.g. of R-Type Delta.

The game kicks my ass over and over again, but when I die, it's my own fault. There's never a time when I think "unfair, that shot should not have hit." The difficulty is such that after a few hours of play I can barely get through second level on Normal.

One thing you might fail to notice at first is that you can re-collect some of your options (the yellow glowy balls) after a death. They float around for a little while. This is a huge deal because without the firepower you'd be screwed after first death.

No title
Among the avalanche of Cave games (which i learn to like ;) and vertical shmups (my favourite game of all Raiden Fighters Jet), there is a nostalgia while playing Gradius V.
I recollect ThunderCrossII and other horizontal titles, which have totally different and unique gameplay and way of exerting pressure on a player than vertical games. On top of it, GradiusV while still being Gradius has the best graphics i ever saw in shmup. Looks better than Dodonpachi3 , Raiden 3 and propably any title you gonna think about. For that price its absolutely a no brainer.
