Hey, wow, someone who has actually played the game! Thanks for writing this review, EmP. I never did play the game but attempts to actually find someone who has usually end with making my time. And no great justice.

It's a good review, too. Entertaining (I laughed several times) and informative. Now onto the grammar stuff. I didn't dig through with a fine-toothed comb, but this one stood out to me, early on:

" It exists; it displays some good ideas and some poor implications and that’s it."

Do you mean implementations? Check the next paragraph, too, first sentence has an "as" missing.

EDIT: I am aware EmP's review isn't the first of these on Honest Gamers, but seeing as he had a hand in the creation of one and was mentioned in conversation concerning the other, it makes him a kind of zero wing authority.

Pfft. I was doing reviews of Zero Wing SEVEN YEARS AGO!

Pffft. Seven years ago is just passe.

I'm pretty sure my review was the first up on the site. ^_^ But anyway, Emp manages to do a fine job despite being up against Real Shmup Review Heavyweights.

Overdrive was doing plenty of things seven years ago. Like celebrating his 70th birthday. And complaining about the young 'uns on his lawn.

This really was a last minute scramble of a review after I had to scrap my plans for covering Zone of the Enders after the entire thing turned into a bitter rant. Well, more so than the bitter rants I try to dress up enough to turn into reviews, anyway. I'm glad it can hang with the rest of the content we already have for the game because what we already have is pretty killer.

Thanks, guys!

If it weren't for the OD dig, I would have assumed someone hijacked Emp's account, what with the complimentary and gracious tone...

Awesomely funny review. Loved the way you describe the mindless boss fights and asinine level structures. Also, your last sentence is simply WINNING!
