Here's another game for Nintendo's future online service WiiWare - Star Soldier R, a vertichal shmup which appeared on many consoles in the past (Star Soldier (NES), Super Star Solider (TG16) et Soldier Blade (TG16)). No release date is available, but we have images for you right after the jump.
Overview: Star Soldier R roars in from Japan to test your shooter skills! Go for the high score in 2-Minute or 5-Minute Modes or see if you have the fastest trigger finger in Quick Shot Mode! Then go online and see if your scores are the best in your region. There’s even an all-new Force System: collect up to five orbiting satellites that can be held close to the ship for defensive cover or can be sent out for additional firepower. Use the controls style that suits you best: Nunchuk + Wii Remote, Wii Remote only (held sideways), or Classic Controller.
● Tournament Style – Flying in straight from Japan, this tournament-style shooter tests your skills with three different game modes. Go for the highest score possible in either 2-Minute or 5-Minute Modes or see if you’ve got the fastest trigger finger in Quick Shot Mode.
● Online Leaderboards – Go online and see if your scores are the best in the world, your country, or your region. If not, keep practicing until they are!
● All-New Force System - Collect power-ups to increase your Force (orbiting satellites) up to five. They can be held close to the ship to provide defensive cover or can be sent out to provide additional firepower.
● Three Control Schemes – Use the style that suits you best: Nunchuk + Wii Remote, Wii Remote only (held sideways), or Classic Controller.
The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (52 minutes ago)
I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (53 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (1 Hour ago)
I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (4 Hours ago)
People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (6 Hours ago)
I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (7 Hours ago)
That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (7 Hours ago)
