    Shikigami no Shiro II is a fine example of the modern 2D vertical shooter. It's also suprisingly deep and stylish.

    Retro-type Shooter Comes Alive!!

    Rated on January 25, 2005 by Lhornz

    For gamers who crave old school side-scrolling shooters but much better than the dozens of classic shooters and done with an upgrade on visuals, this game does it right. I have never heard of the Cas...

    The worst arcade game I'v ever played in my entire life. I find this to be very ugly and I won't even buy a third one.

    Don't waste money or time on this hunk.

    Rated on February 23, 2008 by HereticGeist

    I had gotten this game as a present, and when I looked at the cover, it didn't seem so bad. But remember, looks can be deceiving. Once this game was put into my PS2, I still had an optimistic point of...
