Chances are you've never heard of Omega Five. It suffers the unfortunate fate of being an anime style shoot 'em up released on Western shores; a genre the general Xbox population does not enjoy. On the surface, Omega Five may look like "just another" anime shooter, but it's actually built for a more casual audience. Read on to find out why.
So what exactly is Omega Five? It's a shoot 'em up (shmup) developed by Natsume, a Japanese powerhouse responsible for quality titles such as Harvest Moon. The title takes its name from the five protagonists who are fighting against an evil empire (out of these 5, 4 are playable, and 2 are secret characters).
