I tried again with Darius last night, it's one classic shmup I've just never been able to get into. It's just the feel of it, to me, is... off. It feels like a game essentially designed to be 1-lifed, although recovery is certainly possible it feels almost Euroshmup in that once you're reduced back to base power level it's simply no fun tryng to kill anything that isn't popcorn. I don't understand why, with all that beautiful backdrop art, all the enemies are so small and grey. The back half of the play area seems almost useless for anything that isn't a boss fight, because of the speed shots travel at it seems like you need the be playing in the last third wherever possible to keep up a decent rate of fire. Spent a good hour trying to get into it, made it to the third boss, but just not feeling it. Probably try once more tonight just to see if I can get it to click. I was playing Extra by the way, is there any reason not to?

I'm playing the heck out of vanilla Darius, so that when I move to Extra I might have a clear notion of what has actually been changed.
That said, everyone says Extra is the definitve Darius iteration - if only for the final bonus you get for each spare life, as in all other entries in the series.

I'm back to basics with Hishozame.

There's some nasty artillery in this game and it really makes you feel like battling against impossible odds.
