Ken McKown writes: Sometimes, games are built to punish you and make you like it. This genre is more commonly known as the “bullet hell” game. Flooding the screen with impossible odds, and somehow expecting you to escape, has been around since the dawn of gaming. Treasure, known for such classics as Ikaruga and Sin and Punishment, are one of the kings of this genre. Originally released back in 1998 on the Sega Saturn, Radiant Silvergun serves as a spiritual predecessor to Ikaruga. It has finally made its way onto XBLA with a host of upgrades and features, as well as its punishing difficulty.
