Unfortunately, the best way to describe Dariusburst Another Chronicle EX+ is as follows: a console port that feels like it isn’t supposed to be played on console. As a result, it feels like a cheap experience – a rehash of highlights without any thought as to how the package fits together as a whole. Perhaps most egregiously, the medium through which this console version is played appears to be an afterthought at best.
So, Dariusburst: Another Chronicle EX+ is a bit of a disappointment, then. The core gameplay still shines, the visuals hold up despite their age, and the soundtrack kicks ass, as ever. Event mode pales in comparison to Chronicle Saviours mode though, and the whole affair being presented in the original arcade format does it no favours whatsoever.
All in all, Dariusburst: Another Chronicle EX+ is a good bullet hell shooter, but one that doesn’t reinvent the wheel nor justify its pretty steep price tag. It’s yet another remaster/make/boot/vision of a PSP game which might be entertaining for fans of the genre, but suffers from a few glaring issues such as tons of recycled enemies with a different color palette and really bizarre 32:9 aspect ratio.
