About This Game

eXceed 3rd reboots the eXceed storyline, taking it in a new direction. In this installment, Rayne Lindwurm, a descendent of the Dragon Clan, fights her way through a tournament to become one of the 7 Cardinal Lords who rule her world, Pandemonium.

Rayne must use her Mini-Tiamats, bombs, and the Burn Air Raid homing special attack to fight her way through the tournament and win a seat as a Cardinal Lord. Also featuring a slowdown feature for precise maneuvering through 'bullet curtains', multiple scoring multipliers, localized cut scenes, and memorable bosses, you'll be driven to help Rayne in her journey to power.

what you can expect:
6 stages with fitting music( mostly heavy metal)
6 bosses and some sub bosses each with their own awesome attack patterns
homing shots and destrucable homing lasers if enough ( don't how there are called)are gathered.
4 different diffculties
screen will get very very shiny because the bullets in the later difficulties, it won't prevent you from playing.

Rate it for all shmup advanced players to complete shmup masochists.^^

You need to be a fan of this type of game to enjoy it. I bought this game because I enjoy trying different things in gaming, but i never really got into this one. For the price however, I can't really complain. I would have paid more going to a movie.

Unlike "eXceed - Gun Bullet Children", this game is worth reccomending. A challenging bullet-hell shmup with good audio and visual element. And hard as hell. And there is even translation for story mode!

You need a new layer of sweat on your gamepad? This is the game for you. With all good graphics and a well crafted arcade soundtrack, the third part is definitely the best part of the eXceed series.

I begrudgingly recommend this game in spite of its flaws. It isn't incompetently made and you'll likely have fun with it, I just can't help but think about how much better other Danmaku games are compared to this.

For instance, there is no indicator at the bottom of the screen that tracks the boss's movement so you can focus on avoiding bullets while still dealing damage. Something that I thought was an integral part of all Danmaku experiences.

In terms of content, it seems lacking in that too. Only one playable character with a pretty boring and basic playstyle? Compare that to any one of the Touhou games with its many playable characters and interesting attack options.

I'm not impressed by the music either. Get this on sale if you must, but you'd do better to hold out for when the Touhou games eventually make their way to Steam.
