Holiday Guide To Gaming: Under Defeat HD Deluxe Edition





Take the arcade classic -and one of Sega Dreamcasts final releases- Under Defeat, home on PlayStation's 3 or download digitally to the PlayStation Network this holiday season.

"Developed by Japanese arcade video game company G.rev, Under Defeat is widely regarded as one of the best-selling and finest classic shoot’em up arcade games ever made. Set in an alternate universe during a World War-esque conflict, Under Defeat HD lets players take on the role of a helicopter pilot in a territory divided by struggle between the Empire and the Union. Under Defeat HD builds off of the classic arcade version with a new set of upgrades and modes. Some of the new features include: destructive realism, presenting a further refined iteration of the original with improved artwork, textures and shadowing; and dual stick compatibility."

Placed inside the cockpit of a helicopter, fire at the enemy from multiple angles – many enemies actually require an angled shot as opposed to straight forward. In addition to the two original control options, gamers can also elect to control the direction of their shot with the right control stick.  Said enemies include tanks, huge fully armed battleships bristling and aerial foes all with fire power and looking to take you down!


The graphics were appealing, set in a World War type environment an appearing incredibly authentic in HD. Rumbling tank suspensions, massive explosions and dark clouds of smoke, presents a further refined iteration of the original with improved artwork, textures and shadowing. Making full use of HD TV screens, the New Order mode presents a field approximately twice the size of traditional vertical arcade shooters, effectively adding a new dynamic to the battle with increased range.


This was a title tested by my oldest son whose gaming taste appeals to war, shooter games and beating high scores. Under Defeat made for a competitive match.
*Under Defeat HD, is available for play in single player or 2 player mode, giving the game a more long term appeal.
