-    * nickperson: There'​s nothing else quite like it. If you're not feeling it by the time you get through the Ancient Hospital, it might just not be your kind of game. It absolutely does not reward you for spending a lot of time exploring, talking to NPCs, doing side quests, etc, so try and blow through it as quickly as possible and don't let it overstay its welcome. And for the love of god, set the voice track to Japanese.+    * alfred: There'​s nothing else quite like it.

-    * nickperson: Legendary game. The level design will expand your brain (horizontally?​) ​and the setpieces are as carefully crafted and abundant as in any classic 16-bit game. The thing that pushes it completely over the top is the jaw-droppingly hilarious, endearingly idiosyncratic physics engine.+    * alfred: Legendary game.

That being said, Mile High Club (Epilogue mission) on Veteran is the providence of the Elite, and almost worth the price of admission.

-    * nickperson: I liked this one a lot more than //Earth Defense Force 2025//. There'​s no Havoc physics, no individual human bodies getting gored by ant mandibles, no innocent bystanders screaming actual words.

     * Rudie: A great Zelda-like from [[company:​Cavia]] that killed said company when it didn't sell.  It features great genre mixing with bullet-hell bosses and a visual novel dungeon as examples. ​ The characters are wonderfully entertaining. ​ Also: Boar Drifting.     * Rudie: A great Zelda-like from [[company:​Cavia]] that killed said company when it didn't sell.  It features great genre mixing with bullet-hell bosses and a visual novel dungeon as examples. ​ The characters are wonderfully entertaining. ​ Also: Boar Drifting.
-    * nickperson: The mechanics and design, while as great as any other Cavia game, don't add up to anything significant on their own. But this game is absolutely drenched with a sense of uncanniness and millenarian dread. Even the fetch quests are meaningful in this context.+    * alfred: The mechanics and design, while as great as any other Cavia game, don't add up to anything significant on their own.
