Oh no, not another generic tank boss!

Sonic Wings Special is your typical Psikyo shoot-em'up - the development team responsible for this game later founded the aforementioned game company. The funny thing about Psikyo shooters is that once you play one of them, you pretty much have played them all. With the exception of a limited number of their games, the gameplay design between them is often strikingly similar. The power-ups for the most part look the same and the games normally feature very short levels... You are often rushed towards the level boss in well under a minute. All of the previous statements are true in this game. Thank goodness the core gameplay is fun enough and you can always count on Psikyo to come up with some interesting characters and bosses.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
