G-DariusSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Within the vastness of this great Universe, a fierce battle was fought resulting in the disappearance of a whole planet. This prompted various evolving life forms that have been under long hibernation to emerge one after another. Amnelia Royal Cosmic Force challenged these unknown intruders but unfortunately suffered a miserable defeat. However, they finally managed to complete a unique and sophisticated fighter craft, using the advanced and forbidden enemy power and technology; they named it "Silver Hawk". G-Darius is another game of Taito's awesome Darius series. The letter "G" stands for both "Gigantic" and "Genesis". It is one of the best arcade shoot 'em up games ever created for the Playstation and features either single or 2-players mode. Your mission is to fly through 5 different, underwater stages, shooting large numbers of enemies. You can also capture enemies by launching a weird ball-like weapon and use them as extra firepower against the hordes. To complete each level you are forced to battle against an enormous mother-ship, each having its own powers and weaknesses. Most of these ships are difficult to engage, so you may need some strategy to nail them.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics are in one word fantastic, the perspective changes from 2D to pseudo-3D via a fascinating technique, hundreds of colors mix together to make each and every detail plain beautiful while the action is intense and crazy. The Playstation conversion is quite similar to the original (arcade) version. As for its sound, the game leaves the impression that you have a real arcade machine in your room. G-Darius is one of the games that took Playstation's hardware to its limits, hands down!
