Based on the 1997 arcade game, G. Darius on PlayStation introduces 3D polygonal graphics to Taito's side-scrolling shooter series. Instead of blasting futuristic vessels in the far reaches of space, you must obliterate mechanical fish, wasps, squid, and other odd creatures across blue skies, tropical vistas, and other vibrant locales. The game features 15 levels spread across five worlds and a total of 28 bosses to vanquish. One of the title's distinguishing features is the ability to collect enemies by ensnaring them in "capture balls" fired from your vessel. Captured enemies can then be used as power-ups. You can also build and save a powerful blast of energy called an "alpha beam," which can be used to counter certain boss attacks. Save your solo progress to memory card or team-up with a friend for cooperative play. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
