Overall, the gameplay in DariusBurst: Another Chronicle EX+ is rather fun. While stages feel uninspired, they are enjoyable, and the bosses are a genuinely good time. The soundtrack enhances the gameplay as well, with a unique blend of styles accompanying your shmup-action. I only wish the game could have been laid out in a better way. The arcade modes feel too lacking, and Chronicle Mode has questionable choices that hinder enjoyment.
I reviewed a compilation of Darius arcade games last year and found that it handled the use of multi-screen gaming better; if Another Chronicle was more in that fashion it would be a bit more comfortable to play. Still, it’s another solid shooter in a system that’s chock-a-block with them.
Dariusburst: Another Chronicle EX+ is a lot of fun to play in the moment. While I don’t love every design choice the development team made, I completely see what so many fans love about it. This Switch port, however, is a cheap one, not doing a great job of utilizing the platform or providing the sort of content expected of a home port.
