kamui bites off of Raystorm quite blatantly, but wow, what a good
job this game does at "sampling" a pre existing quality shooter.
To write a review of this game, all I have to do is instruct you
to read the Raystorm review, and that's basically it... This game
may have even taken the exact same ENGINE!
gameplay is sooooo similar, you could even call this a sequel. It's
got the front lasers, and the lightning lock-on's. It's got the
sound effects, and the ground enemies. It's got the tough, knock
down drag out boss fights... But one thing kamui adds is the powered
up front laser, activated by pressing both attack buttons down at
have a power bar in the left corner, which is used in ground attacks,
but when using the laser, the bar moves from the OTHER end, and
depletes from right to left. Therefore you have to choose lightning
element, plus a shield that takes quite a few hits, improves the
gameplay of kamui over Raystorm just a smidgeon, IMHO. This version
is a demo, and only plays two levels, but what me sees, me likes.
kamui really works well with the PC element, and translates smooth
graphics, fast gameplay, and excellent play control to a home computer
is for me hands down the BEST PC shooter out there, bar none!
