I bought Soldier Blade today for the VC.
It’s a top scrolling, arcade style shooter. It has about as much plot as you would expect from this kind of game made in the early 90′s. I’m told the story has something to do with invading Zeograds or some such thing. What Zeo is and how you graduate from it I don’t know, but I do know this: Soldier Blade is a MUST for any Wii owner with thumbs!
I sat in front of the TV until staying any longer would have made me late for my lame-ass job. One of the awesome things about this little jewel is the “Challenge” mode where you have to rack up as many points in 2 or 5 minutes as possible. It’s a great way to spend those 7 minutes until your bus comes.
This game brought back all those memories of hours and quarters waisted in arcades on games just like this one. Its awesome and I have no hesitation giving this title five out of five tacos!
