Ok, so it happens, I am looking for good shooters on VC. I only own one; Soldier Blade, which i adore. I have been reading reviews on the site, and had a look at some of the videos. I feel however I have no better grasp of what ones I would like.

The biggest problem is, I don't want the experience to be worse then Soldier Blade, I have looked mostly Axelay, and Blazing Lasers. Not sure if i will like horizontal shooters as much either.

So, I need opinions, have a suggestion, throw it at me. Made up my mind for me? Trow it at me as well, i just need some opinions.

Here are a few shooters which I can strongly recommend: Lords of Thunder, Gate of Thunder, Blazing Lazers, Axelay, M.U.S.H.A. and LifeForce. I have Soldier Blade as well and if that is the experience you're after go with Blazing Lazers or M.U.S.H.A. I would recommend watching some gameplay videos on YouTube as well. It may help you find the one that suits you best. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.:)

I've been thinking about getting Star Parodier. How does this game compare to other shooters?

Personally I like Final Soldier. The only problem is that it becomes really really punishingly evil a few levels in but the gameplay is solid. Also, the soundtrack has a few really great tracks.

Well, considering MUSHA is 900WP, and Blazing Lasers (Kick as name as it so happens) 600WP, is the extra 300WP worth it if you compare, I mean, MUSHA has style, but i rather not fork out 300WP extra for something that might be just a tad better?

You'll love Blazing Lazers and Star Parodier. There's also another 2 or 3 Star Soldier titles available. If you still want more after that, then go for every shooter that NintendoLife gives a good score. :)

Also, which one is longer, MUSHA or Blazing Lazers? Because the way i saw it when i first got Solider Blade was that, it was the best VC shooter points could buy considering modes, cost, and length.

I would Definitely choose Blazing Lazers over MUSHA. I felt MUSHA was kind of short but its still fun to play. I still haven't beaten Blazing Lazers but it might be because I'm playing it on a harder difficulty too. Blazing Lazers still has more stages and cooler power-ups than MUSHA does. I find Blazing Lazers to be the better value at only 600 points.

OK! Blazing Lazers is winner! and some time down the track, i will get Axelay. Because i found out that it does both horizontal, and vertical.

REJOICING!

Blazing Lazers is the stuff of fantasies. It is everything i liked about Solider Blade, but harder.
Would have been nice with some other modes, but i got up to area 7or 8, and died, and I am soooooo looking forward to doing it again!

If you want to try a horizontal shooter that's a bit different I suggest Super Fantasy Zone for Megadrive. It's not Defender, but it's pretty nice (and quite challenging!).
