    Replayability is not the problem with Blast Works: it's the shaky feeling of being incomplete.

    Making whatever you want can be fun or annoying. Make whatever you want but not see anything unique or interesting.

    For the people who don't actually like reading reviews, all of mine have an extremely condensed version at the end. It's funny, you know, people are always badmouthing Nintendo's third-party suppor...

    A great game for people with time, patience, and vision.

    I was excited about Blast Works from the moment I heard about it, and picked it up at the first opportunity. I grew up on arcade shooters like Gradius, R-Type, Raiden, and the like. While I was quic...

    In your average sh'mup, you have to be content the usual 5 to 10 stages. This game isn't one of those. It's better.

    Interesting concept but extremely difficult.

    Rated on August 29, 2010 by thegreatbilliam
