Awesome shooter IMO, worthy of a 9.

The title of this thread is groundbreaking.

Great shooter with very good difficulty. I'm thinking about picking it up again.

This game is one of my all- time favourites...

Cool graphics, awesome gameplay, sometimes really hard to beat, insane level bosses, nice music and sfx...

Bonus! Bonus!:lolz:

Regards,
Toni

Excellent title, I gave it an 8, because I'm partial to Pulstar and I would rate Pulstar a 9.

One of the best shooters on the Neo. I love it. 9/10. The only annoying thing is the female voice in the background.

Certainly above yer average shmup, but there are quite a few better on the neo. (SWIII, Pulstar, Strikers, PI2)

Awesome shooter, one of my favs for the Neo.

I went with an 8 because there are several other shooters I like alot more, just on other consoles.

Compared to other shooters on neo, yeah it's good. My vote was based on comparison with shooters in general, not comparison with titles on the Neo.

Compared to other shmups that came out during it's time (1998 - Radiant Silvergun, ESPRa.De, Raiden Jet Fighters) it was lacking pretty hard.

For the Neo an 8.5, for shmups in general a 7.

Still one of my favs but yes Pulstar is immaculate.

Although I absolutely love this game, I gave it a 9 cause I have tried shooters with better gameplay, which makes me wonder what could have been better with this one with a few tweaks to the game mechanics.

But this is one of my fav Neo games period. Would love to get the AES cart someday.

Great game. I still like PI2 better, and I would assume a "rate it" thread for PI2 would have an 11 option, so I still gave Blazing Star a 10.

Solid 9 out of 10 for me.

The graphics are amazing. Excellent backgrounds, bosses, cool looking attacks. I thought the game was all flash and no substance at first, but then you get into the bullet patters, finding the bonuses, perfecting the rapid fire mode (this gave me forearms of steel, this and a healthy self love habit.)

Great game, excellent art and bosses, one of the great shmups.

The only shmup I like more than this is probably Salamder 1 and 2.

After 45 votes the rating is 8.26 which is pretty high. I miss my blazing star.

Good game. I'd say its an 8. Nice grafx and fun for 2 players too. Its a whole lot easier then a lot of shooter games that came out at that time. If my old cart didn't give me graphic glitches I would never have sold it.

I dunno I just got a pulstar and I actually like it better than blazing star for some reason.
