G-Darius HD comes in all guns blazing on my Nintendo Switch and once again we have another absolute classic SHMUP gunning its way through new audiences on the Switch as the list of legendary Shoot Em Ups on the console grows longer and longer.

Flying through a level on this beautiful conversion of the arcade game on your switch is a joy to behold as you pivot and swivel through enemy waves with pinpoint accurate controls and classic arcade visuals. 


G-Darius is actually the first fully 3D title in this legendary SHMUP series and comprises of 15 beautifully designed and thought out stages that see you traverse through splitting paths of trajectory as you choose what part of a particular level you decide to undertake next. 

The capture mechanic which is carried on over from the previous Darius title enables you to use your capture orb in order to capture enemy ships to enable them to fight for you in the midst of battle. You can then either detonate your captures or use them like a laser cannon which is a really smart twist on the SHMUP genre and this for me was the first time I had experienced this cool mechanic.

Throughout my time with G Darius I found myself getting shot to bits often but oddly enough I enjoyed every moment of it as I learned the nuances of combat and evasion. I especially enjoyed Laser Duels which take centre stage when you hit the boss for that level. These duels were lots of fun but really hard to master.

The game also looks wonderful and is full of memorable moments as you work your way through its tough beauty. You'll be awestruck at the scenery and magnitude of the on-screen graphics and I really recommend docking that Switch and getting on your 'Big Telly'!
