Presspauseradio.com's Quarter Circle Forward Review: Gunlord

"Shooting -- one of the most common practices in video games. Even since the beginning, players always held guns and used them to further their own goals within a variety of games for the last 20 years. The side-scrolling shooters of the past have faced the challenge of age with each coming year that we take part in some sort of renaissance involving game’s retro roots, but what about a modern day shooter released with the flair of that old-school sensibility?

NG.DEV Team, the folks behind shooter cult favorites like Last Hope and Fast Strikers, jump to that very task with their latest release, Gunlord. It’s a hard argument against the appeal of plugging in an old Dreamcast or Neo Geo console with the excitement of playing brand new software for these cherished relics, but is the novelty really worth the price of admission? In short, it’s worth every penny, given that your expectations are in the right place."

-Presspauseradio.com (Dreamcast, Gun Lord, Retro) 3.5/5
