Not 100 percent confirmed yet but everyone seems to think it's pretty solid.

HD resolution with local and online co-op + achievements. For 10 bucks!

YES! Man, I haven't had my 360 hooked up for some time - but I'll be buying this for sure.

I played tons of this years ago on Dreamcast, and its still one of the best and most addictive shooter experiences out there.

Now an enhanced Radiant Silvergun port please!

Let's hope the leaderboards aren't just for gods like in Triggerheart. I would like to know my place, even if it is 200000th!

Isn't that weird? It's different than every other LA game that's been released. I'm sure Treasure will do it right.

Hopefully the price for DC copies will drop a bit, just getting back into the DC and was trying to rack one down for a decent price. Maybe i'll wait a bit to see.

Depending on how much a purist you are, you can buy it (or have someone buy it for you) on Live and burn it to play on the DC. More money for Treasure than buying it 2nd hand from someone.

I've been saving 800 points for over a month just for this game. I hope that they include more of the story sequences, my gamecube version supposedly doesn't have everything the original Dreamcast had.

I love this game so much, but I'm still horrible at it. But at least now all my friends on Xbox Live will be able to see how much I suck on the friend's leaderboards...

Yes. Very complex, even. If I recall, you're an aircraft of some sort...and you are to destroy all enemies...wait a minute...

Guess I'll have to buy it again to get the details.
