Silpheed for the SEGA CD is a cosmetic update of the 1988 game of the same name, also developed by Game Arts and published to great acclaim by Sierra outside Asia. Although this SEGA CD version adds nothing to the gameplay, it's hardly cause for complaint since the original Silpheed is a Hall of Fame inductee on this site. It's still a vertical shooter, except that now the polygon graphics look much better, as Game Arts really took advantage of the SEGA CD's 16-bit and CD architecture. Although it's more in isometric 2D rather than true 3D, the polygon graphics are so extremely detailed that nobody should complain. The soundtrack leaves a little to be desired, but excellent cut-scenes more than make up for this.

The bottom line is simple: if you like the original Silpheed, you will love this high-quality remake from the same company. The excellent interface and gameplay remain intact in this incarnation. Be warned that it's still the same game, though – quite frustrating due to the high difficulty level. If you are up to the challenge, Silpheed for SEGA CD is a blast. Two thumbs up, way up!
