This game is awesome!!! It's got the whole Greek Mythology theme going for it, that gives you a different look other than the vertical spaceship shoot em ups that we all know and love. I might even like this better than, "dare I say", Truxton. The controls are responsive and you only use one button to fire your weapon, which you hold down and charge up for a more powerful shot. Phelios is one of my favorite shmups from one of my favorite developers. Namco is the best!!!

This game is nothing short of amazing! You play as Apollo on a mission to save his captured girlfriend. It's a well put together Vertical shooter where you get to battle Greek Mythology style enemies. You can charge up your shot to take out stronger enemies as well as a health meter to take up to four hits before you loose a life. The game gives you plenty of lives and continues to practice each level. Upon using a continue the game is generous enough to start you right back at the checkoint

REALLY tough game...That being said, I still love it! The graphics are very colorful, with large beautiful sprites. The sound effects and music, combined with solid, simple controls round it out. You only use one fire button, but that's all this game needs to be good! Who knew that a flying horse works just as well as a futuristic space ship!

This game was hard as balls for me as a kid. Still challenging today... SPEED UP SPEED UP OPTION! I loved being on a flying horse, that was enough to encourage me to play. One day I'll beat it.. Is it weird that I can smell my old house when I watch this?

My friends and I spent some time with this one. Great gameplay, graphics, and sound...nice backgrounds and voice work. A great game to pick up and play for minutes or hours.

A often overlooked shump this game is pretty good. You can charge up your weapon for a more powerful shot and a lot of strategy in the game is knowing what enemies to use the normal rapid fire shots on and who to use the power up shots on. A bit plan and basic looking but still a lot of fun.

"When somethings so bad its good. Yes it had fog, ugly textures, a cheap plastic feel to it and a handful of games but where Nintendo got it right they blew the Sony Playstation & Sega Saturn out the water. No loading times, Analog control, no texture warping or pixelating close up. Sadly a lack of CD and limited Ram mean't alot games had fog and bland graphics. Never as vibrant as Saturn or Playstation games. However Nintendo's 1st party titles often impressed, playing and looking very good." - megadrivemario - Tiger
""Its the year 1997 and martys just lost his job. But thats ok because hes got a game com."" - megadrivemario

 Medal Of Honor Warfighter - Xbox 360
"A short but well-made game. The game doesn't differ that much from other military shooters; you get reliable and consistent mechanics, plenty of variety in both the settings and the gameplay. It is also a highly immersive game in terms of visuals and sound. What IS different is that the game focuses more on creating an engaging storyline, on something the gamer can empathize with - assuming s/he is mature enough. Consequently this is less of a kids' game than the other military shooters around." - unsheep
