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.
