I've seen videos of this game in action and I must say it is astounding. Even though it's a 2D horizontal shmup the camera pans around your ship in certain parts to make it more interesting. I would like to get the game for my PSX but I've heard the Japanese version is superior (it has a stage select mode which the US version lacks and the arm switches from top to bottom slower, plus there's some additional art in the gallery) so I may have to get a swap disk or a Japanese system.
Also, the soundtrack is win. I like the rapping in one of the boss themes and "Factory" which plays during the 2nd half of stage 4. :happy:
