I'm thinking about buying Karous, I found it at about $70 and was wondering what are peoples opinions on this game? Is it worth the money?

No. Karous was the biggest disappointment of a shmup I've played on the DC. If you have that kind of money to spend on a game go for Radirgy, similar style and much better and far more challenging.

After finally understanding exactly how to play Karous, I found myself really liking it a lot (great soundtrack, neat bosses, etc), but I found that it's pretty easy. It certainly isn't on my to own list. I'm gonna agree with the other guy, and put your money towards a different game, though, this may be one of the cheaper ones...

I agree with the other guys. I was disappointed with the game. It just doesn't really excite me enough. Some people really like it, though.

Maybe snag an CDI image before dropping the $?

I decided to get it. It was a really good price too compared to ebay prices for it now. I got it for $58.80 including shipping! Thanks to a $10 play-asia coupon code I found thanks to google. If anyone else wants to get it: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-x-4 ... -1s2a.html

I paid 70 dollars for DDP DOJ and Under Defeat LE each and they were worth every pennies. I just feel that Karous isn't worth 58 dollars. I want to collect it but will wait for a good deal on a used copy. I might buy it if it were 40 dollars.

fumble though the menus and play it?

Much like how I played nes games when I was 5.
