Most Unique Shooter I\'ve Seen!!!!!!
This game is very unique in that you don\'t fly any ships. You control people that are flying around. You can choose from seven different characters and each one has radically different firepower. I guess the characters don\'t even use firepower. Its more like magic. The environments are beautiful and the bosses have a cool manga style. The pricetag on this game is ridiculous but if have the money its a great addition to the shooter collection. Keep the shooters coming Alfa System. You guys rock!!!

Shiki 2, nice idea but yet to topple ikaruga
The game is cool. Good front end nice character choices and variations, challenging gameplay and inventive bosses. The music is a bit weak, but overall.....its not ikaruga, even border down. The game is fun in two player mode and its a worthy addition. Buy if you have the mentioned others and want a different shooter

Shiki 2 is great
Another fantastic shooter for the supposedly \"dying\" Dreamcast. This one provides a serious challenge with lots of extras. 8 different characters to choose from, each with their own tactically-different weapons. Graphics are beautifully crisp and clear. My only complaints: some of the enemies are a bit dull, and the music is a little bit naff. A nice feature: you can switch off story mode, so the action never stops.

The Castle of Shikigami II Review
This game offers up to serve in the DC vertical shoot craze. It seems like Dreamcast has become what fighter have to Neogeo but for shooters when it comes to DC. This games rather short consiting of 4 stage each with 2 parts. The games about 1 and 1/2 times longer than Psyvariar 2. However the music is rather dull and the sound effects seem dated. The backgrounds dont compete with Psyvariar or Ikaruga. The game play is very nice because there are many character each with his or her own style. This will add to replay. It comes with a Vertial mode to like all the DC shooters have. I never play the game in horezontial mode so my opinons are all based on using a Vertial Tv for the true arcade feeling. This games a solid 8/10
