These have been sitting in my queue for a while.  It's hard to review shooters.  I guess these turned out okay.

Critic, we are split 50/50 on this set of reviews (I have
multiple personality, and so do I) .... anyway, I couldn't agree more on Imperium. I rented it once; my god, the market was full to burtsting with vertical scrollers that all looked and played like this EXACTLY! "Unoriginal" is being kind....

But EARTH DEFENSE FORCE? That was one of my top three SNES games, and my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE SHOOTER on SNES. The graphics are clear and colorful (the space station scales in towards you) and it is mega fun to play. The music ROCKS! There is slowdown, but it is rare. I have the arcade ROM of EDF and this SNES cart is like 90% identical, they did a "bang up" job (sorry couldn't resist). I wouldn't give it an A+ or anything because, yeah, I admit it's no Thunderforce 3, but on the shooter-deprived SNES it ranks among the BEST!
