Don't try to get between this man and his coffin.

What I absolutely love about Gungrave is its classic design. The game is all action and can be completed in one-sitting. It may seem repetitive to the inexperienced: the basic premise is to shoot anything that moves until you get to the stage's boss. There is definitely a lot to shoot at and things get very hectic quite often. The real trick here is to keep chaining shots to rack up the combo meter - called "Beat" in the game - continuously and this takes some degree of strategy. A great shoot-'em-up that works as a 3D game because of its tight control and simple but addictive gameplay mechanics. Nice character design too... Kick Their A$$!

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
