Critic Reviews for Toaplan Arcade Garage: Hishou Same! Same! Same!

Toaplan Arcade Garage: Hishou Same! Same! Same! is wonderful, historical stuff, conserving two beautifully designed roadmaps for the future succession of the genre. Antique, yet savagely modern in their viciousness, there are few titles that brew with as much energy beneath a late-'80s vintage aesthetic, driven intrepidly by Tatsuya Uemura and Masahiro Yuge's incredible soundtracks.Despite this, it would be misleading to cite the package as something for everyone. It's a perfect addition for people collecting M2's series, and for those with an interest in the preservation and best possible representation of notable arcade titles. As shoot-em-ups, Flying Shark and Fire Shark require a specific approach and methodology, and won't necessarily be to all tastes. If you revel in the thrill of old-school hardcore gaming, it's a duo that potentially offer years of service. For everyone else they may feel a bit samey, samey, samey.
