Darius Burst: Chronicle Saviours
Top Critic Average
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.
If it's high-quality arcade-style action you want, Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours has you covered.
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.
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.

Shows traditional challenges found common in retro shoot 'em up side scrolling games are still a blast to play.
Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours is a successful cinematic rebirth of a classic, though it can be an acquired taste.
