    Heavy Unit getting mentioned here as one of the worst is unfair.
    I will try to address this as it will be the next review I submit to Melf.

    I've just completed a review of Heavy Unit actually. Look for it next week!

    There is no way this game is worse than The Earth Defend. Nothing is worse than Earth Defend.

    @Kollision: Submit your review as a Double Take.

    well.... I don't think Double Takes should be published so close to the main review...
    but now that Melf relieved me from the commitment with Heavy Unit I'll try to focus on the next one in my assignment list

    Honest Gamers spared it a few more points with a 3/10 which I think is pretty generous. Their review is also a bit less hostile towards it, though no less forgiving of its glaring flaws.

    I agree with Kollision's review though and respect his opinion on the genre very much, nothing he said was inaccurate. I might have spared it an extra point because it is playable, just not particularly worth playing besides doing so as a shmup history lesson. I do appreciate some of the nifty innovations like the shop keeper and reverse scrolling. The economy in the game probably helped inspire games like "Raptor: Call of the Shadows" and "Tyrian."

    You guys serious?-its not the best shooter on the system but i honestly think it is just different,it looks real good and sounds okay so there is really nothing wrong with it except it is quite difficult to play.
    I think many people just cannot play it and so maybe need to sit down with a copy and give it some more time- 6.5/10

    Yeah, Edward definitely doesn't know how to properly play a shooter... Shame on you, Edward!

    Play the original on an Amiga or ST emulator and it'll be fine. Or better, play it on an actual Amiga or ST (not my case )

    What a slowpoke of a game. I only held a bit on it because I played - and liked - the 16-bit microcomputer version at a neighbour's house. But this is an awful, awful port.
