Is it wrong of me that dispite how I like this game I kind of wish it was about a vampire dinosaur? I mean come on... that would be an amazing game no matter what! But enough about my fantasies lets talk about the second eXceed game.
Vampire REX is the second eXceed game and compared to the first one it is amazing, this time around eXceed is taking cue from Ikaruga, meaning the bullets that are fired in this Bullet Hell are colored red and blue, and you are able to switch between the two colors as well alowing you to absorb the bullets to charge your cannon attack and chain together combos. The better you do at the game the higher the difficulty gets, thus letting the game dynamically changed based on how you are doing.
While the game still doesn't do anything unique, and trust me I know it is hard to do something unique in a Bullet Hell these days, this game is vastly superior to the first in just about every way, the music is better, the art is better, and the overall game is a lot more well designed.
If I had to knock it for something I would say that it is not as replayable as it could be as you are only able to play as one character with no weapon powerups and there are just eight stages, and while the story is better that is not saying much, it is still insane and nonsensical though that comes with the territory for these games. Even with all of that for fans of these kinds of shooters this game is very much worth it and I highly recommend it.
