    Review Soldier Blade

    A new shooter in the Star Soldier tradition. Players play as an pilot flying the heavy assault fighter Soldier Blade.

    One thing that can be said for sure is that if you owned a TurboGrafx console you would never be in short supply of shoot-em-up games! For anyone who is a big fan of the genre it is great news that Hudson has brought one of the most respected games of the genre to the Virtual..

About The Game

A new shooter in the Star Soldier tradition. Players play as an SIA (Special Interception Airforce) pilot flying the heavy assault fighter Soldier Blade. Players face the Zeograd invasion force with weapon attacks that change each time they grab a power-up item. Players can unleash three different kinds of attack depending on the color of the power-up item.

New features, such as the Gunbody option for avoiding enemy attacks and the Burst Out system (which has a different effect depending on the power-up level), add a strategic element that requires players to make snap decisions about which items to grab and when to use special attacks. Awesome boss battles await players at the end of each operation. Playing in challenge mode requires players to try to get as many points as they can in a limited amount of time.
