Great game!
As a Dreamcast fan I still enjoy being able to purchase “new releases” on the system, especially titles that fall under the Schmup category. The game itself has been revamped and has endless replay ability, the bosses are unique and has a different feel then the classic schmup style games out there. Def pick this one up, you won’t regret it.

awesome shoot em up
Finally came across this shooter at a great price. Its a Euro shooter which is a bit different from games from Japan. The bosses have a different look and feel. The game is growing on me and enjoying the challenge. Happy to add this great shooter to the DC.

Dreamcast alive and Kickin'!
If you still love to play on Dreamcast, do you a favour: play Sturmwind!
it's an awesome shump thet remind me 16 bit old school with a revamped graphics and audio.
It's not frustrating and it's a "trial and error" with a not to steep curve like bullet hell shumps.
If you love shumps, it's a must have.
Box is a standard jewel box (not the standard box for Sega Dreamcast), booklet instructions is well printed as well.
