PSFocus: After Burner Climax Review

PSFocus writes: "We all now live in an age where 3D HD and soon even a normal phenomenon. This is all very nice and fun, but deep inside we all miss those days when a console like the PlayStation and was only just out of gamers were allocated on arcade games in some arcade hall. You can bring back moments more or less, for the PlayStation Network now offers you a typical arcade game to: Afterburner climax. An arcade cabinet can give us, but the game is not doing a lot of nostalgic feelings controversy."

i really enjoy this game. no frills, no having to have a pilots license to fly. just a fast paced balls to the wall arcade shooter. I especially like the ability to swap out the new music with that of the original after burner.

I would love to see the same type of arcade remakes for thunder blade and galaxy force.

I like it, thats matters most to me.


After Burner Climax - The High Point of an Aging Series

After Burner Climax launched on home consoles and PC back in 2010, and we've seen very little of the series since.

Fantastic game. I only wish it were bc for xb one. I keep my 360 hooked up specifically to play this and other delisted games like outrun and sega rally.

If Sega is smart (they're not; We've established this a long long time ago, sadly), they'd release a nice collection for current-gen with the best versions of these old arcade-console classics, like Outrun, Crazy Taxi, Sega Rally, Virtua Tennis, Afterburner, etc etc, as well as some of their JP-only releases, like Initial D.

I'm with you.

I want project justice (rival schools in Europe).

I want powerstone both from capcom.

And of course every game you mentioned.

I specifically think sega rally is under utilised. It made people who didn't even like racing games have-a-go and I thought it was great back in the arcades and Dreamcast era. Crazy taxi I never laughed so hard before or since..it was pure gold on dreamcast also

You may also like Chorus from Deep Silver if you like these type of games.

Gunstar Heroes was made by Treasure. I'm not sure if that IP actually belongs to Sega. If it does, the ONLY modern day developer that I think would do that game justice is Housemarque. Maybe Sega could collaborate with Sony to let them make a modern day Gunstar Heroes. I definitely think Shinobi and Afterburner need modern day remakes though.

I feel like there are stronger Sega IP's than some of the ones that were listed such as...

Vector Man
Comix Zone
Virtual On
Ranger X
Jet Set Radio
Eternal Champions

A new eternal champions would be sick

TimelessDbz787d ago

Phantasy star Online 1 and Phantasy star universe.

Mopes786d ago

Sadly I think that is unlikely because of Phantasy Star Online 2

FlavorLav01786d ago

Totally agreed. That’s a good start. Here’s a few more I think would covert well.

Virtua Fighter
Fighting Vipers
Sonic Adventure
Altered Beast
Shenmue (properly supported)

sourOG787d ago

Condemned criminal origins!

Snookies12786d ago

Amazing series, wish more people had known about it back in the day!

sourOG786d ago

Probably still my favorite horror game of all time. I’ve been into that kind of shit my whole life so I don’t scare easy but condemned got me. When you’re looking down a hallway and see people peaking out. The heart was kicking lmao.

I need to play it again. I played a year or 2 ago and it still held up. Graphics are obviously dated but just the premise. Like pulling pipes off of the wall and shit. You don’t see that anymore. I’d take the same game with a new can of paint, it still feels good. Multiplat remaster do it. I don’t think criminal origins ever came to PlayStation.

As hard as it was, the Shinobi remake that came out on PS2 was decent. But yes, a new remake would be great. Always loved that series.
