Actually assessing 3D Gunstar Heroes is difficult. It is Gunstar Heroes, which is the perfect shooter. Anyone who has never played it and enjoys this type of game is only doing themselves harm in not doing so. This version is content complete and as good of a version as any to rectify the issue. On the other hand, 3D, the major selling point of this release, is where it fumbles. It’s not worth the double for those already with the game, but it’s still an incredible adventure any way it’s sliced.
Gunstar Heroes was and still is a great game. Treasure’s classic has become even friendlier and fun with developer M2’s wonderful port. If you’re into the old school side scrolling shooters like Contra and Metal Slug, this is a game that needs to be played, and the 3DS version is the best one to do that.
The new 3DS version brings to the table some well thought out optional tweaks to the gameplay and is immaculately presented, with lovely stereoscopic 3D finishing off the package; fans of the action genre should pick this up without a second thought. If you've never experienced Treasure's original masterpiece, this is the perfect opportunity to do so; for a game that's over twenty years old it still feels fresh as a daisy and plays like a dream. Gunstar Heroes is a genuine genre tour-de-force that's simply not to be missed and is yet another triumph for Sega's 3D Classics range.
