Critic Reviews for Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo

Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo gathers the two Gundbird and Samurai Aces series into one friendly compilation. The danmaku genre is much more present here than in the previous Alpha version, which is a real plus for fans. Too bad the game still lacks real display and tutorial options once more.

The games included in this offer are mostly on par with what players can expect from good, classic shoot'em up types, other than one of them which suffers from a poor performance. With its good retail price and an overall quality action gameplay, this is a fun proposal for fans of old school shoot'em up games.

To recap, The strengths of the new City Connection Psikyo ports are the fair price points, amounts of titles on offer, and quality of the games themselves. Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo mostly retains these same advantages as Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha, though it is debatable if the game library holds up as well overall.

While Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo might be slightly inferior to the Alpha collection, it's still an adequate assortment of shooters from one of the best in the business.

This is an essential buy for all the shoot'em'up aficionados who are in their thirties, and a nice little collection for all the other gamers. It's just a pity that there are no extras of sort included in the digital version.

Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo certainly gave me more time spent with the arcade shooter genre. I can say with absolute certainty that I have a greater appreciation for the genre than when I went into this review. I recommend it to those who have a great appreciation for arcade shooters. I also recommend it for those who are curious or would like to have a solid collection to round out their Switch library.

It’s not as good as Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha, but Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo is still an interesting proposition for shoot ’em up fans.

Other than having them all in one place, you don't really get anything extra when buying these shooters as a package, rather than individually. You might save a couple bucks purchasing all six games at once, but the better play might be to just pick and choose your favourite ones. Ultimately, Shooting Stars Bravo is a decent compilation that is disappointingly barebones, even if it can provide a pretty good time.
