This Shoot Em Up game is one of the best of it's genre.
It is hard and it feels rewarding to beat the stage without taking hits.
The gimmick of switching between black and white stand is fun, you collect the same color pellets for the so called bomb power.
If you like games like Touhou or Gradius, this game is for you.

this is the business-class airline ticket to bull-sh|tville.

Okay jokes aside, it's definitely one of the hardest shmup I've played. Its unique polarity mechanic provides interesting gameplay and difficulty unique to its own way, Ikaruga keeps players vigilant since it might catch the players off guard when they are collecting projectiles to charge your homing laser, there might be a bullet of opposing polarity hidden beneath the huge numbers of bullets you're trying to absorb, or giving players short time to make decision on which polarity they should switch to while being surrounded by huge numbers of bullets more than enough to block the sun.

the non-gameplay elements are impressive, eye-pleasing art-style and ship designs, another aspect that stick out the most is the soundtracks. Nothing gets you pumped up more than listening to the music accompanied with flying through the beautifully designed background. albeit I ought to say it might need some polish on its 3d renders.

Heralded by many as one of the best, if not THE best bullet-hell shooter out there, and with good reason. The unique gameplay mechanics, where you can change polarities and be immune to like-colored bullets and deal more damage to opposite-color enemies (and in turn, you can die from opposite-color bullets), help it stand out. Easy to understand, difficult to master; with hundreds of bullets on screen at once, it can be easy to mess up. Not to mention the challenging gameplay, as is fitting for a bullet-hell shooter. Oh, and it's by Treasure, the same people who brought us Gunstar Heroes and Radiant Silvergun, so you KNOW it's gotta be good. This is a game that shooter fans of any caliber should own (though personally, as legendary as this game is, Crimzon Clover will always be my go-to bullet-hell experience).

Argueably the best bullet hell shooter to hit the arcade.
Regardless, Ikaruga is a masterpiece of the genre and is a joy to be played.
The port originated from the Arcade and then to Dreamcast consoles, which then expanded to Gamecube.

Now it is here for PC users in all of it's glory, with updated HD graphics and achievements!
Play solo or local co-op on any of the three difficulties through five challenging levels!
Switch your ship's polarity at will to absorb that polarity's gun fire from the enemy and negate damage to your ship.
Correctly doing this will also power up your special homing missile gauge.

This is a very unforgiving and challenging bullet hell shooter, I highly recommend it.

I can't say that this is a bad game. It's a great Shmup. The polarity idea is awesome and executed concisely. The later stages get to the point where you need a lot of memorization of the levels. I wanted more of a casual experience, and didn't want to put in the amount of effort it would take to learn the levels. If you love Shmups and are in for a challenge then you will love this game. It's not for the faint of heart.

Excellent PC port! It supports a plethora of controls, multiple graphic options within the game, and performs extremely well.

The game itself is a very good game. While the story may be minimal, the presentation is great, and is hard as balls in normal shmup style. However, if you are going to achieve the highest score you can, you will also find a complex and deeply rewarding shooter that has aged extremely well.

Originally owning this game on the Xbox 360, I have to say I love this game and it runs smooth as butter here on Steam. I'm glad to see these old titles coming here. I hope one day we'll get more of Treasure's games because they make some really unique, tough as nails, insainly fun games!

This game is super nostalgic and hardcore as hell. OST and graphics are pretty boss, and speaking of bosses they're all super varied, taking full advantage of the unique polarity mechanic.

My frothing demand for this game increases.

This is one game that's worth the praise it gets.

Here's hoping Treasure releases Radiant Silvergun on Steam someday...
