    A fast, furious and fun shoot ‘em up that brings some interesting gameplay changes into its different modes. Doesn’t do anything groundbreaking but plays like a dream and looks and sounds exactly as you remember shmups do!

    Fast Striker is solid all round. It has four modes of ever-increasing challenge and complexity. Novices are able to get a feel for the game, while Maniacs can push their skills to the limit. The shields are an interesting idea. Under the right circumstances, they are a satisfying means of escape, yet they can also be a crutch. If they are always being exhausted, it's proof that the player needs more practice. Overcoming the impossible is what STGs are all about, and this title clearly understands that mantra.

    If you're a shoot 'em up aficionado who must play every single one in existence then Fast Striker will provide a worthwhile albeit unmemorable arcade-style experience. However, those not obsessed with the genre will find very little to enjoy here.

    Fast Striker is a reasonably credible arcade-style shoot 'em up that should have some appeal to fans of the genre but this is a port of an old indie game and as such probably won't turn too many heads or attract new fans to this style of game.

    Fast Striker pays homage to the original game, but it offers very little in regards to modernization. Fast Striker has some simple, intriguing elements to it, but it lacks the polish of other games in the genre.

    Fast Striker is a difficult, but scrappy homage to the shoot ‘em ups of old. Its Neo Geo graphics, while nostalgic, don’t particularly stand out, and use an ugly palette of colours. The lack of additional gameplay features, especially powerups is its most egregious sin, but the experience is still an enjoyable one, if only for ten minutes at a time. On a PS Vita and for short bursts, this could provide entertainment for a bus journey or two. On PS4, however, it doesn’t cut the mustard, and fails to stand out from the many, many indie shoot ‘em ups available on the Store.

    With the Dualshock 4 in my hands and Fast Striker on the screen, what would be a whimsical appeasement of the past instead transforms into a regurgitation of old tropes.
