Blazing Lazers review

Reviewed January 14, 2004

Marc Golding says: "Gunhed. It’s quite possibly the coolest name for a vertical shooter ‘starfighter’. Gentlemen, you have to admit it's cool: it has the words 'gun' AND 'hed' in it. And that is only fitting, as this game (known to you and I as Blazing Lazers) is possibly the coolest game the genre has ever seen. "

Blazing Lazers review

Reviewed January 16, 2004

Zigfried says: "This particular game falls firmly into the "overhead space shooter" genre, and smooth control combined with a fairly intriguing powerup system set it firmly at the top of the heap. It was the fastest shooter — vertical or horizontal — that the world had seen to that point, trouncing even Thunder Force 2 on the "superior" Genesis system."
