The game looks and sounds great, but unfortunatley the controls are not that good and that makes the game unplayable.
The controls are too touchy. Navigating through the small passages without hitting the walls or trying to move around enemies without accidently touching them is very difficult. You will lose most of your lives in this game not from getting hit by enemy fire, but from accidently touching a wall or an enemy ship.
I used a controller setup with rapid fire, so anything in front of me was going to be destroyed (as long as I could line up the shot with the touchy controls). Even with that, after playing for an hour, I could not get through the first level.
I enjoy difficult games that have a learning curve, but this game is difficult for the wrong reasons.
