The Laser writes: "Adding a few twists to the classic vertically scrolling shooter genre, Castle of Shikigami III brings solid, arcade-style shooting action to the Wii. With ten unique characters, there's plenty of variety in attack styles, along with challenging gameplay modes. Players can choose to battle the foes alone or in co-operative mode, and play in boss attack and dramatic battle modes as well. The game's unique Tension Bonus system which allows you to build up extra shooting power and score multipliers adds a strategic element to the gameplay. Shikigami's fluid controls allow for screen-filling bullet battles and epic boss battles to create a solidly entertaining title that should please fans of the genre."
