  • Review Score:9

    The greatest shooter of it's time.

    This game is what sold me on the TG 16, it was beyond it's time in graphics, music, and gameplay. The nine solid levels are each unique and fun. Each level was challenging enough, but not unbeatable. There are a number o... Read Full Review

    Blazing Lazers is easily one of the best Turbo Grafx 16 games out there.

    I can remember one time years ago when my neighbor brought over his Turbo Grafx 16 to play, and this was one of the games in his collection. Needless to say I was instantly hooked. Blazing Lazer's is a top-down scrolling... Read Full Review

    Easiely the greatest game ever made for the space-shooting genre!

    Greatest game ever for its genre! I cannot believe that people consider R-Types or The Raiden Project series better than this game. First of all, I've never enjoyed R-Types simply because of the Pan-Scan view. I do, howe... Read Full Review

    A fun space shooter.

    In a time where space-shooter were a dime a dozen, Blazing Lazers has long faded into obscurity. But if you come across it cheap (very unlikely it only came out on the Turbo-Grafx and is generally very expensive) I sugge... Read Full Review

    Old-school shooter brought back to life thanks to the Virtual Console

    You can't say you are an old school video game player if you have never played Blazing Lazers. What seems to be at first an easy shoot-em up scroller gets harder and harder as you progress. I have to admit, I do not s... Read Full Review

    Amazing Lazers

    As a fan of shooters this game is one of those plesant supprises I've been looking for. It's true that the format alone of the game isn't all that new but it's everything done right and there is an addition that makes t... Read Full Review

    Blazing Lazers is fun on all fronts.

    Something I noticed is that horizontal shooters tend to proffer a lot more artistic merit over vertical shooters which often makes the experience more personal; while vertical shooters depend mostly on the occasional nea... Read Full Review

    A harrowing ride through one of the best space-based shooters there is.

    Blazing Lazers put you in the cockpit of the Gunhead fighter, and demanded that you single-handedly take out a massive enemy force single-handedly. This is the kind of game arcade junkies live for; total destruction w... Read Full Review
