ott0bot pretty much has this spot on. The games you listed off, like Ikaruga and Mars Matrix, all came many years after Donpachi. If you don't feel that it stands the test of time, I'm sure many others agree, though.

The shoot 'em up genre has significantly improved over the years, though even there, I'm sure that many could argue that the heyday of quality shoot 'em ups have passed. For the hardcore shoot 'em up fan, they will like to go back and appreciate the games that defined the genre/their childhood.

Fun game, it happens to be. What did you pay for it?

*cough* continue *cough* I wanted to see the ending, i tend to do that with shmups.


FAIL. :lol:

I'll put in another vote for Soukyugurentai. It's fantastic. Although, I'm sure you'll see the end of it before I do. :roll:

Well it's one of the best shmups ever made...

Like Doctor Fugue said, you have to take in account when this game came out. DonPachi featured one of the very first refined combo systems that we seen in shooters today. I think it has aged well, I play mine daily.
