  • Review Score:8

    Triggerheart Exelica's unique mechanics add an original and refreshing twist to the classic Bullet-hell stereotype.

    Triggerheart Exelica originally witnessed a release in Japanese arcades in 2006, followed by a Dreamcast launch the following year. Despite its short length; even for a Bullet-Hell game; the title's mechanics manage to o... Read Full Review

    Interesante pero corto

    OK para empezar es un juego que revive el viejo y olvidado estilo del "dispara a todo lo que se mueva" y añade la opcion de sugetar a los enemigos para arrojarlos a otros enemigos, hasta aqui vamos bien, pero empezamos c... Read Full Review

    Good arcade shooter!

    Sound 4.5/5 Pretty good, it's like a mix between Infinite Undiscovery and others. The music adds a spice to blowing up ships and shooting bosses. Plus, sound effects do their job, let's just say the music is one of t... Read Full Review

    The anchor system makes it a fun experience, but it needs more substance.

    The original Triggerheart Exelica was released in Japanese arcades in 2006, with a Sega Dreamcast port released near the end of the its end. Now, Warashi has decided to release the game on Xbox Live Marketplace. While th... Read Full Review

    Addicting to play.

    To be honest the only reason I actually got this game is because it had anime girls shooting the hell out of out of everything....but it was surprisingly good. Triggerheart Exelica is a 2D shooter that's about two hum... Read Full Review

    Warashi should of handled the XBLA version a lot better than this...

    Don't get me wrong, though, it's not a bad game, if not a decent one. I will admit that I'm sort of a sucker for lolis, and Exelica herself would be one of them (well, to me at least). So I took a crack at this game's de... Read Full Review

    This game looks great and is a lot of fun... but its over before you know it!

    I really thought that this game was a lot of fun when I was playing it for the first time. I really enjoy these types of shooters and I love the Japanese anime style of the game. Your character has a sort of arm that c... Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of true shoot-em-ups, Triggerheart Exelica is a good one for Xbox Live Arcade.

    The shoot-em-up genre or the "shump" if you want to be fancy is pretty much meant for the hardcore audience. Lately, it feels like a resurgence of these shumps is happening this year for Xbox Live Arcade. It started with... Read Full Review
