This game was lame. There is a lot of flashy stuff which gets in the way of the game play. You think that it's enemy fire when in actuality, it's just flashy stuff there to distract you. Playable action wise, it's the repetitive shoot em up over and over again. Oh, and it's got a cheesy plot line too. And premise.
Deathsmiles is a game within the genre of the shooter(Shmup) and it created by the Gods of shooter design, Cave. The game offers a excellent challenge and multiple modes, those who state this is easy are obviously terrible players and continue alot. The game does offer infinite continues, yet why use them when all it proves is that you hit the continue button more than the fire button, the game is about being able to clear the game with limited continues.
You have a selection of characters with different fire power and strengths and weaknesses. The game offers beautiful 2D graphics, stellar animation, and solid collision. Easily one of the best shooters ever and worth the rental(and purchase).
