Acerca de este juego

Los humanos al mando pidieron la purificación de la humanidad y la erradicación de los vampiros y las ‘líneas de sangre impuras’ (los nacidos de una mezcla entre ser humano y vampiro). Y así comenzaron las masivas purgas de impuros que recordaban a las 'cazas de brujas' de hace siglos. Liderando el genocidio se encontraba la corporación exorcista 'Gun Bullet Children'.

A medida que los abrumadoramente enormes ejércitos humanos comenzaron a eliminar a todas las comunidades vampíricas e impuras a lo largo del mundo, los ejércitos de impuros buscaron aliados para contraatacar. Ria File es una chica mitad humana, mitad vampiresa que lucha al lado de los impuros que están intentando cambiar las tornas de la batalla, denominados 'Siege on the Holy Land'. Su plan: arrasar a los humanos y acabar con la Dama Sagrada Anhel, fuente del poder militar de los humanos. En esta batalla, la derrota no es una opción para ninguno de los contendientes.

Con una adictiva mecánica de juego bipolar, este increíble shot'em'up vertical va a encantar a cualquier fan de los shooters. La polaridad y el color de tu personaje se puede cambiar para absorber las balas enemigas de la misma polaridad mientras se cargan las armas especiales y se inflige el doble de daño a los enemigos de la polaridad opuesta. Cada bala absorbida recarga tu arma especial para una destrucción total. Con una increíble música, un estilo artístico realmente bello y unos niveles que te pondrán a prueba, este juego pone a la saga eXceed en el mapa y tiene todo lo que podrías desear en un juego de estas características.

Características Principales:

  • Mecánica de juego bipolar

Tremendo juego hell bullet total, muuuy difícil pero adictivo. Esta segunda parte si que es muy buena, con textos en ingles y un buen control. El gameplay se basa en cambiar entre color rojo y azul, el rojo absorbe las balas rojas y el azul las azules pudiendo así sobrevivir.... o intentarlo xD. Al absorver suficientes disparos de color se puede hacer un ataque bestial que quita mucha vida. El gameplay es sencillo pero es lo que lo hace adictivo. Eso y su enorme difícultad. Yo he conseguido pasarmelo en fácil (y por los pelos) pero en normal ya cuesta mucho más. Mención especial a los enemigos finales que tienen unos patrones de disparo que te cagas en los desarrolladores... especialmente el final... madre mia, me duelen las manos xD.

Como negativo tiene la resolución que es muy baja aunque no molesta para jugar. También los controles son raros, usando "Z, X y C" y las flechas para moverse. Aunque es comodo luego pero podrían decir que son esas las teclas a usar xD. Los textos del modo historia están en ingles. La historia es simple y una mera excusa para seguir disparando pero se agradece que hayan personajes y dialogos aunque sería genial si tuviese una buena historia ya. También se puede jugar en modo arcade sin estos dialogos.

Si te gustan los juegos difíciles y los retos y en especial este tipo de juego hell bullet, este juego te gustará, simple pero muy difícil. Mucho mejor que la primera parte que era injugable xD.

首先我想说的是:这个游戏虽然不像东方系列那样出色,但也是一个经典的弹幕游戏了。游戏给人的整体印象很好,音乐画面也都不算差。不过这个游戏让我感觉我手好残啊。。擦弹感觉能擦过去的似乎判定没过,感觉有些不舒服。另外双色子弹的确难度挺大的,我总是躲错子弹。。我知道我手手残没想到脑子还缺根弦。。哎。。我还是好好的玩别的游戏吧TAT

It's like a cross between Ikaruga and Touhou. Though the dialogue isn't as well written as Touhou. If you're a fan of shmups and animu, you might want to pick it up!

I must have burned myself out on shmupt games with Touhou and Crimzon Clover.

I can appreciate that this game has neat patterns and utilizes the polarity mechanic from Ikaruga. This game is much better than the prequel, but I still don't feel compelled to 1cc this game on normal or any difficulty for that matter.

A person basically combined Touhou and Ikaruga.

This is because that person hates you.

This game is amazing! To me, it's a combination of my old favorite vertical scrolling games like Touhou, Raiden, and Gradius (I know this ain't exactly vertical scrolling). On the hardest mode ever, it is still pretty punishing for me, but there is a storyline as you fight through levels and I know I will be playing this game a lot when I have the time to. If you are into the three games I mentioned above, this game is worth a try.

Bad parts of the game? Of course...
-This game runs 30 fps but is intended to run 60! Running the game at 30 fps makes all the bullets move slowly... There are fixes to fix this issue permanently. Players will have to find a fix and apply it to the game so the game runs with bullets as intended.

Verdict: 9.5/10. Players should not have to go through the trouble to fix the game they just bought. Other than that, this game is very awesome.

While I wasn't the least bit impressed with the first eXceed, Vampire REX is on a whole other level, so much as to completely eclipse its predecessor! Borrowing Ikaruga's color swapping mechanic, eXceed 2nd is a much more strategic and engaging game full of intricate bullet patterns and impressive boss battles, that demands concentration and forces you to use all your abilities in quick succession if you want to survive.

Even though it lacks anything truly original (besides the nonsensical and thankfully entirely optional dialog), and the frame rate is still liable to fluctuate at times, eXceed 2nd has greatly improved on all fronts and is a great bullet-hell shooter in its own right. Tight controls, crazy amounts of action, a hefty challenge, and an incredible soundtrack; there's little more I could ask for, which makes Vampire REX an easy recommendation for any fan of the genre!

Exceed 2nd is a bullet hell shooter that lifts its main gameplay mechanic from Ikaruga. All bullets/enemies come in two colors, and you can switch your own color to absorb same colored bullets (which recharges your invulnerable laser) while being vulnerable to opposite colored bullets. You also do more damage to opposite colored enemies, though it's often riskier to do so.

Exceed 2nd is more of a traditional twitch/reflex game than the puzzle shooter Ikaruga though. You can still apply strategy to the stages and bullet patterns to get better at them, but it has a lot more flexibility and room for improvisation.

The game also has a lot of aggression. You're encouraged to get close to enemies to melee them, and use your laser as soon as it recharges to kill bosses faster. It gives a great sense of risk/reward to the boss fights, since you can choose whether to try and kill them as soon as possible, or save your laser to protect you later. Combine this with how you damage bosses faster by staying close with the opposite color, and you have a very aggressive, up-close-and-personal game.

The level designs and bullet patterns are really solid, though maybe not as intricate or perfect as a Cave shooter. But they are fast paced and have a lot of intense moments. Overall the game is really, really fun, and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys shmups. It's the best Exceed game imo, and probably one of the best shmups on Steam if not the best as of this writing.

SHORT REVIEW
This game is pretty fun to play and I highly recommend this version out of 3 exceed series.
The gameplay is a bit different here. The game uses dual-polarity system.
You can match your polarity with enemy's projectile to absorb their projectile and
fill your bomb gauge. If you shoot different polarity bullet, it will deal critical damage.
This game also has a good BGM.
And don't forget the awesome voice acting that many other danmaku games don't have.

eXceed 2nd - Vampire REX, the sequel to Gun Bullet Children, has everything that the 1st one lacked: Astonishing graphics, a soundtrack you'll want to own, and tight gameplay.

The game is story-wise a sequel to Gun Bullet Children, but this time you'll side with the vampires against the Church and their Gun Bullet Children. You play as Ria File, a half-human, half-vampire (aka a deviant bloodline). She has the ability to shift polarity: switch elements to absorb bullets of the same element while the other type becomes fatal. This is a mechanic that shouldn't be unknown to Ikaruga players. The game also has a dynamic difficulty implemented, whereas long survival and scoring gets you in a higher difficulty while playing, and dying reduces the difficulty. The overal difficulty of the game is okay. It might be tricky at first for newer people, but you'll get the hang of it quickly.

Although there isn't much to the story in most danmaku shooters, this one had a story i liked. The game references characters from the previous game as well. Just like the previous game, the characters have voicing in Japanese, and unlike Gun Bullet Children, this one has an official translation in the game.

The soundtrack was made by Saitama Saishu Heiki and Shibayan, well known names in the doujin world, and this soundtrack delivers, just like their other works. The boss music fits rather well with the bosses' personalities or significance in the story, whereas the stage music either takes it a bit easier or just gets really tense to prepare you for your next big challenge.

This game is just fantastic and is among my favourite danmaku shooters now. They really outdid Gun Bullet children by far. You can get it for 6 EUR, but i'd be willing to pay double price for this game.

Also, i didn't find the OST on Steam, but you can purchase it from the tennen-sozai site.

The second in the eXceed series, Vampire REX (the updated version of Vampire) is a bullet hell shooter brought to us by FLAT/Tennen-Sozai. What makes this game "unique" is its mechanic of swapping polarities to absorb either blue or red bullets. If this sounds familiar that's because it is - this is the same mechanic that Ikaruga used famously to great effect. The series as a whole was created by a dōjin circle, similar to the Touhou project and, while not as good in my oppinion, eXceed is still a lot of fun and definitely gets your heart pounding. I beat the first game, but it was pretty generic and I would not recommend it; however, the second - Vampire REX - is a lot of fun and worth playing if you like these types of games. While Ikaruga is hands down the better game, Vampire REX is short, fast, fun, and really scratches the bullet-hell itch I've had for awhile. It doesn't have a lot of fancy options like leaderboard support but it does have minimal controller support, replays, high scores, and an arcade mode to skip dialogue. The story isn't very good, but that's to be expected, and the all important soundtrack is enjoyable and varies from Gothic choir music to hard techno - each boss even has its own theme. It was pretty easy after you figure out the mechanics of the game: collect one type of bullet to build your "bomb" and dodge the other color, you do double damage to the unit opposite your current polarity (the difficulty also increases while you play if you're doing well, which was cool), and while not the be-all-end all of bullet-hell shooters, eXceed is a worthwhile series to play and you're not going to find much like it on Steam, so I recommend this title, but not the first. We'll see if the third is as enjoyable as Vampire REX.

Pros:

Bullet-hell action!
Swapping polarities (see Ikaruga)
Replay support
Solid mechanics
Great soundtrack
Controller support
Difficulty increases while you play if you don't die

Cons:

Short
Not much to unlock, only trying to beat your old high-score

This is a pretty "pure" shooter, it's fun, challenging, and short. Great for pick-up-and-play action, but not very deep. I'd recommend it over the first in the series as it's a little more polished and the polarity swapping mechanic is a lot of fun to play with. It's not the best shooter and is more of a niche title since it's a bullet-hell dōjin game, but if you like this style then you're hard pressed to find something like it on Steam. B+

I may be misrepresenting some systems in this game - blame the fact that as I try to play it, the PDF manual for it has vanished from Steam's servers.

If Ikaruga were not a puzzle game/memorization exercise, it would probably play like this. You have a dual-color system where you absorb some bullets and die from others in a convenient black-red and blue-white system. Also I guess you're a vampire or a part-vampire or something. That has nothing to do with gameplay but it seemed relevant given the title. It's playable but nothing standout for the genre?

Also I have no idea what the ♥♥♥♥ it is with these games, I'm just going to blame the rather unimpressive work I've seen from all Nyu Media-localized titles, but the resolution constantly seems off or stretched, despite the fact that you can only use specific ones the game itself allows you. It will grate on you anytime you see text or the game UI. It's ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Purchase only if you really, really need more shooters and have run through EVERYTHING ELSE ON STEAM (save Razor2, that thing blows). This is the highlight of the eXceed trilogy, grab it if you only take one.

Is it wrong of me that despite 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 allowing 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.

EXceed 2nd is the complete opposite of the 1st. First, you’re a half vampire trying to prevent your kind from being wiped out by humanity. Second, it’s good instead of being terrible. Finally, they spent the hour or so to use Google translate to localize the subtitles so I can understand the story (I still don't understand the story. I guess I should've read the comic book... I'm sorry Manga.)

The graphics are vastly improved and the soundtrack is still solid. The player’s sprite and enemy bosses have some pretty good looking animation. The bullets are no longer monochromatic blobs. The backgrounds look nice. The run of the mill enemies are still pretty bland, though. Overall it’s a huge improvement from eXceed 1.

The game play is what really stands out. The enemies’ attacks are either light or dark. The player has a ‘polarity’, which means you can absorb one type of bullet to power up while you are vulnerable to the other. The game play is tough without feeling cheap and the difficulty curve is well balanced. Most importantly, you can move diagonally with your gamepads analog stick.

In conclusion, this game is as good as the first one was bad. If you’re only going to play one game in the series (which is what I’d recommend) this is the one.

Ok, this one ties into the first one (obviously) except you're playing VS. the original cast of gun bullet children.
Nice!
VERY WELL DONE. Fixed fps, smooth gameplay, very tricky
(no spoilers, but this one's a bit unique!)
decent storyline, very fun!
good soundtrack, good graphics (for this type)
I'm 100% impressed by this for a bullet hell.
(plus, being able to whomp the good guys from the first one is a nice spin)
excellent sequel.
