No it's not. It's a shame that you can't play it in tate mode though. That would be awesome.

Day one purchase for me. I'm trying to control my impulse purchases on XBLA, but I need this game (again). It's like Rez.. both dreamcast classics that I don't think I can resist owning twice. Oh well.

Well whatever, I just found out the options allow you to flip the screen or zoom.

[edit] So thats what TATE means .. :S

ZOMG!

Wow.

Any doubts I had have been replaced by sheer anticipation. TATE + my monitor stands ability to turn 90 degrees.

ZOMG!

It looks a little weird though. Like it's 3:4.. it just seems like it should fill more of the screen in that mode. That's so cool that they've included this as an option though.

Must buy.

I dont understand... apart from the resolution fixes (?), isnt this essentially the same game that was on the Dreamcast and Gamecube?

Yes.. some of us are just suckers.

Myself included :)

Stretching the images to 16:9 wouldn't work without flipping.

However, I wish they would have made the background slightly dynamic to reduce chances of burnin, maybe a slow fade in and out of mild colors would have been good.

Wow.

I got mesmerized by that rotated image. Damn. I can't wait.

Wow, I wonder how I can make my LCD stand on its side. Whip out the sticks and ductape.

Are you serious man? You didn't play in the real TATE mode where controls are just fine.
Anyway, this game is an absolute classic and I will definitely buy this version.
Whoever said it has shitty graphics is blind AND has not played this game. Holy shit is what I tell myself when I play this every time on the Dreamcast, using a normal TV of course. Now it's nice to play this on a high res display with AA and all that, and it'll be perfect over running this on an emulator.

Those gamecube prices are insanely stupid. Even higher than Radiant Silvergun.

Awesome!

Alright gents, this is what i like! Ikaruga is the first Naomi game being ported to XBLA... this is great news.. and opens the doorway for even more Noami games!

I think this is awesome and Id like to salute Microsoft and treasure for bringing this great game to the XBLarcade. any news on co-up?
Commented on 2008-01-09 12:34:05
