GameTap: Star Soldier R Preview - Star Soldier takes its shot at WiiWare

GameTap writes: "It's fascinating how certain games for some mysterious reasons mainline into that gamer's pleasure center that exists in everybody's brains and rush into the consciousness of the gaming culture. In Japan, Star Soldier is one of those games.

Yes, THAT Star Soldier. The old, top-down, outer space shooter where you zig-zag an interceptor around and frantically jam on a fire button to blast everything in sight because everything's gunning for you, too.

Star Soldier R is the latest iteration of the pyrotechnic workout, and it's part of the first wave of WiiWare digital downloads set for U.S. launch on May 12. It would seem to be a perfect fit. "Hudson always tries to make simple, fun games," says Amar Gavhane, associate brand manager. 'We don't make crazy, violent shooter games-this is about as violent as we get. We don't make games with adult content. This is a quick little bite sized experience that everyone can play.'" (Star Soldier R, Wii)
