Chain Blaster Review | Wiiloveit

"It doesn't take much for a shoot-em-up to find itself swamped, uneasy and unable to manage a host of haphazard mechanics. In hopes of avoiding an empty hull, gimmicks often get tossed in to enliven shoot-em-ups above standard conventions. But, cautious of this danger, Chain Blaster heads in the opposite direction, having its core design guided by a single system and thus paving the way for a less transparent openness. Because of this, Chain Blaster not only proves super approachable even for the tension it generates, but on a broader scale, its controlled depth functions as an adequate offset for its immediate and long-term weaknesses." -- Wiiloveit.com (3DS, Chain Blaster) 77/100
