Star Soldier R (WiiWare World)

The shoot 'em up genre has been lacking for many years now, so it's no real surprise that shooter fans have been anxiously awaiting Hudson's newest entry in their Star Soldier series. WiiWare seems like the perfect fit for a good old-fashioned space shoot 'em up, but many fans have been wondering if this new title would be a complete shooter package or just a stripped down version of the Time Attack Mode that was normally included as a nice little bonus to the full campaign version of the game. Sadly, Hudson has decided to make this new entry in the series completely time-based and this is likely to turn off many gamers who are expecting a more complete shooter package.

In Star Soldier R, you get to take control of your space fighter and your job is to shoot your way through each of the two levels in the game as fast as you possibly can. You can collect power-ups that will increase your firepower, but there aren't any of the typical smart bombs found in many other shooters available to bail you out. You'll have to earn these points the old-fashioned way. At the end of each level, you'll get to take on a huge boss, and given the time limit, you'll have to find a way to take this boss out as quickly as possible. (Star Soldier R, Wii) 7/10
