Super Star Soldier review - PC Engine

Read Original Review PDF for Super Star Soldier

Super Star Soldier box artSuper Star Soldier is a classic vertical-scrolling shooting game. In addition to the Normal Game mode, there are 2-minute and 5-minute Time Attack modes and a mode where high-scores can be checked. Normal Game is made up of 8 different stages, and in each stage (except Stage 7), a boss awaits you at the end.

The special attack squad, lead by the Mother Brain, has launched an all out invasion on Earth. Take your small-scale fighter, the Neo Caesar, with its arsenal of 4 regular weapons and 2 special weapons, and send them back where they belong!

Retrospective comments

Reviewer

The PC Engine has loads of excellent shooters, and this is one of the best. The follow up to Hudson's 8-bit classic Star Soldier, this update features arcade-quality visuals, great music and bags of playability. Although fellow PC Engine stablemates Gunhed and Soldier Blade are better blasters overall, this is still a stunning game and comes highly recommended.
