Blazing Lasers is a spin off of the popular Star Soldier series and is one of the best non CD Turbo Graphx 16 shoot 'm ups (shmups).

This game has 7 action packed levels that are as intense as they are fun as you will encounter literally hundreds of waves of enemies in each level that will test your focus & reflexes.

This game also has an interesting power-up system that allows you to increase the strength of your current power-ups by collecting power-up orbs (those pinkish purple orbs that dont have letters or numbers) over and over again or swap to a new power by collecting different weapon orbs (you can also activate multiple powers by collecting certain cobinations of weapon orbs that are compatible).

The graphics in this game are pretty good for when it was originally released but nothing truly remarkable. The sound and music on the other hand are terrific and fit the game very well, some of the music surpasses the average arcade games music released in the late 80s when this game came out.

The replay value of this game is fairly limited though, unless you're a diehard shmup fan.

Bottom line: This is a great shmup with a unique weapons system that is fun and frantic though it's fairly short and can be beat in less than an 1.5 hours. But for true shmup fans or those interested in the genre this is a must-buy at only 600 Wii Points.

Score ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ 8.5/10

8- Great This is a great game that might have a few flaws or could have been better, but is still a game we highly recommend!

Blazing Lasers is a great entry in the Star Soldier series but it is fairly easy to beat,and a little too short,but all in all it's a fun game!
