I am reminded of two things:
(1) Bullet hell shooters have a duly earned name.
(2)I suck at bullet hell shooters.
The game is about some chicks, that get somethinged and then end up as the operating system for a couple of mechs.
I think there is more going on but 90% of the story is spoken in Japanese and while there is an option for subtitles, most of it takes place during the most hectic battles when reading test will get you killed. Basically some alien robot things show up and start attacking earth, then the president fights them in his mech (WTF?!?!?), then he gets a distress call from his twin daughters, only when he gets there they have been turned into robots (Seriously WTF!?!?!?!). One of them flies off with him while the other stays behind for no apparent reason other than inevitably turn up later in the game as a villain, then the president dies for some reason just as they get to earth, then they give the girl-mech-thing to the president’s adopted son (hunh?) because reasons … it all makes no sense but the actual game is pretty bad ass and enjoyable, even if the last half of the game is nothing but boss-fights instead of the waves of enemies you expect form this sort of thing.
and I do mean HALF THE GAME … the first 3 levels are waves of enemies with a medium difficulty boss at the end, then you hit a mid way cut scene where your mech gets upgraded and the rest of the game is nothing but boss fights.
The visuals are really great, the story is painful, the combat system has a few easy exploits to turn yourself nearly invulnerable but the game tends to swarm you so much that cheating in necessary in a few spots … over all it was pretty good; I like these types of games but I am flat out no good at them, so I only played it on easy.
sorta wish that they had canned the latter half of the game and stretched out the first few mission a bit more … if the latter half had cut the boss battles down to two tiers each (one of them has three segments while the other has 5) and then streched out the rest of the game for two or three passes per level, I would replay the shit out of this game.
as it is: I beat it once and that was enough for me.
