The gameplay is frantic but ultimately redundant. The short campaign may turn off some, but for a measly 10 bucks, fans of the genre, who don't have many bullet hell games to choose from on current consoles, will probably get their money's worth.

Ghost Blade HD mostly accomplishes what it sets out to do. It provides a bullet-hell arcade shooter, with leaderboards to chase. The awesome 90’s effects and focus fire gameplay are undermined by a slight lack of difficulty and effective power-up system.

Ghost Blade HD is a vertical action shoot 'em up of the bullet hell sub genre. It is quite remarkable despite not highlighting anything in particular, but it is well built and enjoys a very balanced difficulty. Ideal as a entry to the genre, it will allow you to learn to play, before leaving yourself in the middle of hell.
