I wasn't going to pick at your grammar here, but then I got through your whole review and realized that it was tremendously polished with only the one real mistake. Here's that mistake:

"However, for those expecting a fresh Gradius title is going to be disappointed, because this game is basically a rehash."

That should be: "However, those expecting a fresh Gradius title are going to be disappointed, because this game is basically a rehash."

Anyway, this was a great read and I felt that you expressed your frustrations with the compilation in a clear, convincing manner. I've always wanted to love the Gradius series, but it's always been a franchise that forced me to fight for any enjoyment I got from it (aside from Gradius V, which I felt did a lot of things right). It's good to see that I'm not alone in preferring the SNES version, too!


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Oh, thanks for pointing that error out, I didn't realize I did that! And yeah, I've also wanted to love the Gradius series, but the difficulty in certain games always drove me away. I just felt like going through some of the games in the series because I'm interested in the upcoming release of Otomedius Excellent, and I just wanted a sense of what I might be getting into with that title. Thought about playing some of the Parodius titles, too, but I'm sticking with the main titles for now.

And thanks for reading the review, glad you liked it.
