Thunder Force V (PS1)

Postby VideoGameCritic » May 8th, 2020, 6:32 pm

Going from a mature 2D system to a nascent 3D platform proved to be a rough transition. There are some good ideas here (the new free range weapon is awesome), with some cool animations, but the gameplay is kind of a mess.

Part of the problem is that the graphics lack the clear distinct lines of the 16-bit era. Here everything looks so muddy. When you die often you don't even know what happened.

I may revisit my current "B" review, which may have been a bit generous.
