After Burner Climax Review

 

After Burner Climax originated in arcades and won many people over while satisfying the loyal After Burner fans. Four years later and the game makes the transition from arcade machines to next gen consoles. For those unfamiliar with the game, After...

After Burner Climax is a great addition to downloadable games. Fans of the arcade version will love the fresh coat of paint and the few added options. Even I found myself losing track of time in the game after starting it up and I never played the...

Review: After Burner Climax

 

I'm going to make a shocking revelation.  I've never played Afterburner.  Nor have I played Afterburner 2.  I never played the arcade version of Afterburner Climax, either.  My history with Afterburner is that I know that it existed at some point in...

SEGA and AM2 are teaming up once again to bring us a high-octane aerial experience known as After Burner Climax via the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. While it won't take you 8-10 hours to complete this intense arcade title, you find...

Arcades, like war, have changed. The sorts of games that would typically have been played in arcades in the past are now bought (fairly) cheaply via the online stores built into our consoles. Never has this been more painfully obvious than with After...

The sleek, superficial action of After Burner Climax is thrilling in short bursts but not deep enough to last.

Simple fire-and-evade gameplay is fun for a little while ; Gorgeous visuals and an incredible sense of speed ; Wide variety of special options to unlock for Arcade mode

Only takes about 10-12 minutes to reach the end ; Action starts to get old fast

Pricey but nicey retro remake

Looks lovely in HD ; Incredibly satisfying to play ; Can fiddle with various EX options

Only amounts to about ten minutes of fun ; Still quite simplistic at heart ; Not really worth the price

Elsewhere, there’s a Score Attack mode that enables you to upload your scores to online leaderboards, but that’s pretty much it. We’d liked to have seen more substance here to go with the new style and, as such, can't quite recommend it for the...

It took a little while, but Sega's high-octane revival finally makes it home.

After Burner Climax iOS review: Beautiful but broken wings

 

Obvious joke alert! Given that After Burner holds such a cherished place in our childhood memories, this pretty but slightly wonky iPad conversion is something of a disappointment. You could say it's an After Burner anti-Climax... Yeah? YEAH? Or you...

Looks great, and there's always loads on screen ; Plenty of bits and pieces to unlock

Controls are awkward on the touch-screen ; which leads to over-simplification

So for an arcade game, immediate impression is king, and with that numerous other aspects like depth and replay-ability take a back seat to hooking people in for a few minutes of fun. Sega knows this, and that's why their arcade output has been without...

Break-neck speed; Great lock-on destroy combo gameplay; Pretty to look at

Arcade nature means some cheap deaths; Only really good for a few hours

After Burner Climax PS3 Review

 

For those of you that haven't played the original After Burner then you missed out on a treat. It was released in the late 80s and like all good games it originated in the coin swallowing arcades before being ported to the home console market. Being...

Great Graphics ; Great Gameplay ; A classic reborn ; Seriously cant put this down

Your wife/girlfriend may get mad ; Controls aren't what i expected
