Star Soldier R Review

The classic shoot 'em up series comes to WiiWare

There are already three games from the Star Soldier series available on Virtual Console, and all three are enjoyable vertical-scrolling shoot 'em ups.

Star Soldier R is slightly different in that while it still involves flying around and blasting enemies, you can only do a two-minute game (with one level) or a five-minute game (with two levels). It's effectively a time-based high score challenge, with the emphasis on uploading your high scores to a world leaderboard.

If high scores are your thing this is a great little shooter, but if you prefer your games to have numerous levels you're going to feel disappointed.
