Master Ikaruga on the 360 with user created replays


ikaruga360.jpgI spent sometime playing Ikaruga at Tokyo Game Show, but there wasn’t much to say about the hands on experience. Ikaruga is Ikaruga right? The tate mode is neat, but I don’t think many people are going to flip their HDTVs 90 degrees to make good use of it. The feature I most excited about is downloading replays over Xbox Live. I enjoyed watching he Ikaruga Appreciate DVD and I like watching power plays of shmups. I can’t wait to see what kinds of awesome strategies and score attacks people are going to upload when Ikaruga comes out this winter.


There is also a two player, online co-op mode too. It sounds like a good idea on paper, but I wonder how that is going to shape up when lag comes into play. Bullet hell, polarity switches and network slowdown don’t mix.
