Review:

Strikers 1945 Plus is the third installment in the popular Psikyo series. This game brings back our popular International strike-force against the invading aliens, in a classical and very solid shooter. Filling a void in the Neo Geo shooting department, this game is basically a sort of "extra" version of the former non-Neo Geo Strikers games, adding some extra features and much improved graphics, the first vertical shooter for Neo Geo since Aero Fighters 3.

You can choose between six (and a secret one) planes, according to your tactical and strategic preferences, to battle tons of enemies and big bosses in eight action-packed missions, in marvelous rendered landscapes, with a very weird,chtulhu-like, final boss. Basically, the game has the typical Psikyo style: you have to dodge a lot, know enemies' patterns, and wisely use your bomb, which is a helpers call. This means that every plane has a helping ally (or formation, or a giant V-2 rocket, in fockewulf's case) who enters the screen when called, absorbing projectiles and firing at enemies... and needs to be used wisely!

Another interesting feature is the super shoot gauge, which is replenished by the hits you score, and limits your use of s-shoots.This gives depth in the strategic department, because you need to learn how to time s-shoots,and eventually combo them with helpers...

However, the screen easily gets full of projectiles, requiring remarkable dodging skills and, in the last levels, a good deal of luck; this is a typical '90s trend, a thing that could scare neophites... and make happy expert shooter players, even if sometimes the game can be frustrating... the game deserves some plays however, and has a kind of addictive, clean gameplay that will make you appreciate it, even if you're not a typical shooter fan... battling giant mechas with WW II planes, is a very interesting thing!

An awesome shooter from psikyo, not original but very solid.


Graphics: 9.5/10
By far, the best department - even better than blazing star (in my humble opinion), fully rendered.
Sound: 7/10
Cute, functional, but nothing memorable...
Game play: 7.5/10
Strike the enemy! The game is soooo smooth...
Replay Value: 7.5/10
You'll play it a lot, especially if you'll decide to finish it with all the planes...

Overall Rating: 7.5/10
