Japanator Doesn't Recommend: Bangai-O HD Missile Fury photo
Japanator Doesn't Recommend: Bangai-O HD Missile Fury
by Tyler Jones

Bangai-O HD Missile Fury is a game that I couldn't complete, and as such will not give a numerical score. There are several reasons for this, but a big one is that there is no coherent main mode to finish. You are simply given mission after mission, and there is no story at all to tie everything together. The second reason is that with over 100 missions, completing all of them would take a tremendous amount of time.

The third is that this game is so difficult, the level design so poor, and the controls so flaky that the game makes me want to tear my controller in half.
