Ikaruga was originally developed for Sega DreamCast by Treasure - a highly respected developer of console action games - and has become one of the most beloved of all shooter titles.

Those already familiar with Ikaruga will appreciate vital game upgrades such as enhanced graphics, a new demo mode that clues players in to the "perfect" round and private passwords that lets high scorers post their accomplishments on the official Ikaruga Web site and establish bragging rights within the worldwide Ikaruga community!

Ikaruga is a comprehensive, scrolling space shooter (with options for either a vertical or horizontal display) set in 2D, against a rich 3D backdrop. The game is an ideal combination of rich Japanese storytelling and high-powered, fighter pilot heroics. Players take the role of our hero, Shinra, the lone survivor of a freedom federation that was massacred by the evil, power-hungry conqueror Tenro Horai. Now Shinra, in his newly-built ship, the Ikaruga, must fight for an aging, exiled people who are depending upon him for their survival. Join the sole warrior as he battles the evil Horai in the hopes of restoring peace.

pretty good said:

For a scrolling space shooter type game it was pretty good, the graphics were stunning at the time and the style of gameplay took a little bit of skill to pull off. When I watched the reviews I heard that if you had enough skill you could go through the whole game without taking a hit, that intrigued me a bit and made me rent it. It turned out to be a great game and I like it a lot. I'm hoping that there will be a release for the Wii but I don't think that the game's status was high enough for a sequel. I guess we will just have to enjoy this one on our gamecubes for now. Overall I would give it a 4/5.
