I love monster shooters, they all add some variety, creativity, and strategy in the shooting process and this one along with House of the Dead 2 score it big time. I love that you can choose your routes from the start up to in between stages which really boosts the replayability. The bosses are all memorable from the Hindu God Statue, Medusa, Hydra, Fire Gargoyle, Sphinx, and Pharaoh head each with different attack patterns forcing you to use some strategy in the shooting not unlike House of the Dead. The weapons are a great addition, my favorites are the Gatling Gun and Grenade Launcher. Without revealing anything, there are four endings you can get from playing two stages which opens the doors of fate. Even after you find these endings you'll keep coming back. The only negative to this game is a design flaw where every time you reload/shoot the screen flashes so don't play if you have a history of epileptics. Other than that, this game is worth your time.
