Darxide sounds familiar, but I don't ever recall seeing what it looks like. A quick glance on YT makes it seem like it really wants to be Galaxy Force. It also seems like every person that uploaded a video never bothered playing past the first stage. That, or every stage involves shooting rocks...

I still plan to play and review some of these.

Eventually.

Darxide was the last game to be made on the 32X and was released only in Europe, so has become a huge collectors item that people will pay stupid amounts of money for. It looks pretty great but, sadly, it's a bit rubbish. If I decide to target that one, I might video the playthrough. Or maybe not. Probably the second.

It's not all bad; that Afterburner port took me right by surprise.
