Well i got the game. I've played three levels so far and here is my first impression review.

Thorium Wars has amazing graphics (especially for being dsiware). The controls are real easy to master (by the way, you can change the controls in "options" menu during a mission). All the vehicles are pretty fun. There are two major cons though (so far). First off, on the levels I played they all had these pesky little anoying flying droids that would just keep coming at you, which can be extremely annoying when you are trying to destroy some "energy core". The droids were never a real threat, but when you find out you died all because some pesky little droid fired this almost nearly harmless shot at you, it can be nerve recking. I also hated how long each mission was. So far, all of my missions have averaged 30 minutes which is pretty long if you ask me. Other than that, its all great (the price could've been a little lower though). At the same time you'd also have to like this kind of game to really get into it, so its not for everyone. Overall 7.75/10

Well, I took the plunge. I now have a whopping 16 remaining blocks of memory. DSiWare has constituted a majority of my recent game purchases...!

Anyway, I'll get some impressions up tomorrow, after I play one or two missions.

Money isn't a big problem with me, and I like rail shooters. Memory, however, may be a problem. Is this game worth it?

Sorry for the off topic-ness.
@Tails: re-add me to your roster. My Wii was repaired recently and all my contacts wiped. My code is in my sig. I'll add yours now. I'll also add Super Sonic and Knuckles if you wanna be friends.

My enjoyment outweighed my reservations. :) But I'll say no more until the review is up. Don't want to steal my own thunder, after all...

Actually, the difference between the reviews seems to me to be that IGN is comparing the game to other shooters, whereas you're looking at the game in isolation.

I didn't find that many differences between the two reviews (other than the score, but that's ignorable). I'd be very interested to hear how you do compare the game to other shooters, Brutus?
