Critic Reviews for BATSUGUN Saturn Tribute Boosted

30 years after the arcade original debatably debuted the bullet hell concept, Toaplan's best shooter is back in an imperfect port of a port.

Batsugun remains a thrill ride: a barnstorming, explosive affair that holds a pivotal position in the history of the shooting game and its evolution. Its systems are not as in-depth as most Cave titles, and it's also comparatively short if you discount all the looping, but it remains a superbly entertaining and surprisingly accessible piece of gaming history. It's a shame the arcade originals aren't present, but, with all its very welcome bells and whistles, it's certainly the best home release yet.

Here though in Boosted? I say Batsugun is definitely the best Saturn Tribute title by far in terms of featureset, though it doesn’t hold a candle to either M2’s careful curation or Bitwave’s near instantaneous input times, it still manages to be a ton of fun, with the soundtrack customization alone getting many, many kudos from me, and makes this a must-own for any fans of the game’s score.
