Well, I kept forgetting this was here. .....that and being distracted by too many other shiny things.

I've only had 2 or 3 runs at Exes so far, but, defnitely glad to have found it, it's one I'll be sticking with, so that alone is quite worth it. Some good scores here too, I see. I'm tempted to try once more here and just raise the score a bit, but.... feh. Too much pain at the moment. I see some good scores listed there, though.


.....so many stages though! This game seems like it'll require quite a great deal of effort to beat! I cant think of many other shmups that have such a large number of stages to them. Also seems to have more of an "arcadey" feel to it than many other scrolling shmups, if that makes sense.

Don't know about you guys, but I enjoyed Exed Exes more than I had expected.
The game is damn hard, but cool nonetheless.

Agreed.

I'd thought it was going to be pretty bad, as I generally have a very low opinion on almost all of Capcom's games, but this one surprised me by being pretty darned good, and unique.

Bloody amazing.

I dont hate any of these.


As such I actually dont care too much which is chosen, but my vote will be:

Scramble

Phoenix

Because there hasnt been any proper retro shmups yet. And Scramble in particular would be entertaining.
