SHUMP Fighter
4 Star Review   By member Ninshadow - Jul 17, 2008   

Strengths: Online

Weakness: Online (not enough players)

I remember playing this on the arcade in Japan. I recently found out it came on the 360 and bought it for $10 it is awesome. WarTech is a nice little distraction with some really good ideas but it's not a complete title. I just wish there were more characters in the game.

Arcade-style top-down shooter
4 Star Review   By member kgivens - Apr 26, 2008   

Strengths: Faithful port of the arcade version, mindless fun

Got this for just less than $20 recently. At this price point, the game is a fine diversion for a few hours, provided you have a taste for top-down type space shooters. However, in most levels you are just fighting a single foe, not waves of tiny ships and missiles. Game offers a nice variety of attacks, although it takes time to master some of these, and some attacks leave you vulnerable while "reloading". Still, a good way to blow off some steam for an hour or two here and there. Graphics are decent but not mind-blowing.

shumup + fighting game
3 Star Review   By member bauerpower - Feb 15, 2008   

Strengths: unique shooter title for the x360 lineup

Weakness: not for everyone, should be an XBLA game

If you're a hardcore shumup fan (shoot em up), you may appreciate this game than the casual X360 owner. It's good to see these type of games appear on a console that's largely FPS/Racing centric. The game should be found for about $10-20 so it's not a bad idea to pick it up and try it, but it should have been a XBLA game from the start. It's not a typical shooter though, you fight 1 on 1 like a fighting game but in a shooter environment.

WarTech Senko No Rondo
3 Star Review   By member ssimp12626 - Nov 30, 2007   

Strengths: old school shooter

Wartech Senko No Rondo is an old school shooter/fighter rolled into one game. I was a bit dissapointed as I hoped Wartech would of been more along the lines of Ikargu, Raiden, Gradius type shooters. Overall, it was ok.

Wartech - No real war & no exciting tech
2 Star Review   By member bunty7 - Nov 29, 2007   

Strengths: A little different & can feel refreshing for a little while

Weakness: Feels like an arcade game & not worth a full price game

This game has multiple playable characters who fights with their robots & use moves like missile launch, special attacks dash, normal shooting & melee But it gets boring after a while & sometimes the controls don't responds too well & you end up just mashing the buttons. A victory doesn't feel much exciting when you are not even sure what you did to earn it! Graphics are some of the worst seen on Xbox 360 & at best this should have been an Xbox live arcade game. There are some easy achievement points if you have time & patience to sit through the game

What Hapened? low tech...
2 Star Review   By member greggworldwide - Nov 8, 2007   

Strengths: Original style flying robot shooter.

Weakness: Clunky and Hard to control robot. VERY little replay value. All robots feel the same to control. Short and repetitive.

This could of been a GREAT game to show off what the 360 can do, but was not. I have seen and played better original Xbox games... I have talked with some friends from Japan and they said the arcade version there was better. They did also say it was a must have if you are a shmup fan. If you can pick it up for less than $10 then It could be worth trying. I would not waste money on renting it.

3 Star Review   By member mirado182 - Nov 7, 2007   

Strengths: Unique Fighter/Shooter

Weakness: Not for everyone.

If you're a shmup fan, then you should definitely check this game out. If you're not, then chances are you won't like this game. This game should be around $10-$20 now so it wouldn't be too costly to try out. It was an arcade game back in Japan then translated to the 360. It isn't translated too well, but like I said, if you're a shmup fan, then you'd definitely appreciate this game.

Wartech needs more tech.
2 Star Review   By member The_Admiral - Oct 29, 2007   

Strengths: It's a shooter with its own look.

Weakness: Gameplay.

Wartech would be an okay game if it was say, and xbox live arcade game. But it's not worth $60, or $40, or even $20. I picked it up for $10 and that might be its price point. it's short, reptative, and just nnot that great a shooter for the console. I read it's anm arcade point and maybe it worked there, but I don't know how. Rent it if you need the achievments.
