I just started replaying this gem. It has many similarities to Panzer Dragoon in its on rails shooting segments. It’s also a beautifully designed game as well: Vibrant environments, imaginative enemy designs, great bosses and fun dialogue.
There are also on foot segments where you run around and explore. I think if another PD rail shooter ever came out, it would be a cool idea to do what this game does and let you explore ruins while shooting on foot! I guess the only downside is the lack of control options, but other than that it’s a really awesome rail shooter!
