Critic Reviews for Darius Burst: Chronicle Saviours

Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours is a successful cinematic rebirth of a classic, though it can be an acquired taste.

A wonderfully rich celebration of one of gaming's more forgotten shooter franchises, although it's unfortunate its pleasures come at such a high price.

If it's high-quality arcade-style action you want, Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours has you covered.

DariusBurst Chronicles Saviours perfectly replicates an original arcade experience, and delivers a ton of old-school-feeling shoot 'em up content in the process. However, despite looking and sounding excellent, the action doesn't vary much, meaning that it will likely only appeal to hardcore fans of the series.

Unless you're a die-hard space shooter fan who doesn't mind repetitive filler content, it is hard to recommend Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours at the current price point, even if it does have solid gameplay. I'd suggest waiting till it goes on sale for somewhere around $20 or less, as that is a far more reasonable cost.

So if you like your shoot-em-ups to unleash hell at an insane pace but all the while expect you to keep your head, then Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours is definitely the game for you.

8.5 / 10.0

Fun Tidbit – The music in this game is quite odd. I can swear I heard someone singing about sushi at one point.

The main thing that holds Dariusburst Chronicles Saviors back from utter greatness is its price of admission. $60 for a "shmup" may be a bit much for some gamers to ask. However, those who do invest will find Chronicles to their liking, with the number of modes available, the local co-op support, the awesome presentation and the devotion to the series' history. Fans of the genre will definitely get something for their buck.
