|Another brilliant port of another brilliant shooter. Has the self-adjusting difficulty ingenuity and the morphing bosses of the other games in the Gunbird/Strikers series, slightly simpler graphics, and no meter for charge attacks, so you can just use them one after another, almost continuously, which is quite fun and allowed the developers to be a bit more strategic in the weapon choices, it seems: some planes have normal shots good against bosses and charge shots good against crowds, while others have boss-slaying charge shots and crowd-clearing normal shots. Neat balancing act.|
This port did not come to the States, our "Strikers 1945" is Japan's "Strikers 1945 II" (see entry 266).
