There's a lot to enjoy in Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours. Fast paced gameplay, interesting reflex based mechanics, a catchy soundtrack, and plenty of modes to run through, but it never feels much more than a sit down and play game. For its base price, Dariusburst should be stirring up hours upon hours of gameplay, not inspiring quick burst sessions. On top of that, it's very easy to burn out on the experience. It's technically great and playing through the more difficult levels are a treat, but once they're done, they're done. It's certainly good fun, but wait until a sale or a price drop.

Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours is jam-packed with brilliant shoot-em-up action. It's a game that can last you a long time, and hardly ever loses its touch over that period. Pricey compared to similar games, but what you get for that is absolutely stellar.

Shows traditional challenges found common in retro shoot 'em up side scrolling games are still a blast to play.

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.

Outside of a few baffling design decisions, DariusBurst Chronicle Saviours is a jam-packed package that should be on the radar of any self-respecting shoot 'em up fan.

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