Very boring. I understand some might feel games like these are classic but not me.

Despite reading many unfavorable reviews, I decided to give this game a shot. Mainly, most poor reviews were outrage over the menu, which isn't fancy, their inability to figure out how to switch between games and that these are straight ports.

I really couldn't care less about a lackluster menu that I look at for all of five seconds. I simply didn't care and if you do care greatly about fancy menus, you probably shouldn't rent this. However, you probably shouldn't rent this game anyway. The collection consists of three shooters which, to me, 2 of the 3 were simply dull and uninspired.

All three games are made by the same company and they basically all play the same. You have an option to use a sword that swipes bullets out of harm's way or a gun to push back the would-be invaders. The thing is, in Karous and Radio Allergy, your sword might as well be a toothpick... there's hardly anything there to make any sort of impact whatsoever. Both titles are relatively the same and both are relatively dull, mindless shooters with no real tactical prowess needed. Lots of enemies come at you and you shoot. Done and done.

Chaos Field is really the only title that stood out as being worth playing. Your sword is a decently sized weapon that helps greatly in reducing clusters of impending doom and is actually a tactical advantage in a lot of situations. You have the choice between three different characters with varying weapons and maneuverability to accommodate your playstyle, which was also a nice feature. Finally, I enjoyed that instead of hordes of incoming ships, you basically are pitted against massive bosses nonstop... which I found to be engaging, intense game play.

Chaos Field is actually quite a bit of fun, but unfortunately doesn't bring enough life, fun or excitement to procure a recommendation for the set. I really wish they had included two shooters that weren't simply lifeless predecessors to Chaos Field. Variety is a good thing when you're going for "Ultimate".
