"If you've been playing games for a while, you will likely have heard of Treasure. This revered developer has created some of the best shooting games ever. True, it also gave the world Dynamite Headdy, but you gotta take the rough with the smooth. Gunstar Heroes, Ikaruga, Alien Soldier, Bangai-O - all magnificent titles in many ways. But all pale in comparison to the company's magnum opus, Radiant Silvergun."
"Released in 1998 on Sega's dying Saturn console, the game was never given a western release. Being the spiritual predecessor to Ikaruga, the similarities are immediately apparent. But at heart it plays very differently. In fact it plays, perfectly. And every modern shooter, whether FPS or traditional scroller, could still learn from it. So here, in words and video, is why the game is still vitally important, ten years after its release."
