you can play those chapters at any time also, they're just side stories that have nothing to do at all with the main story.

But they are hard, well harder than normal game, and get the hard EX mode lolol you will cry.

Paper why not get Gunstar on Xbox 360? It's better, and it always costs $5.

I have to say, thank you for advising me. I didn't buy it yet so I would really appreciate it if you did explain to me what features it has over the original. I do know for sure that the wii version is a perfect port and has a very good if not perfect controller (Classic or Wii SNES). Don't know much about the 360 and PSN version though.

The 360 and PSN versions add online multiplayer, Achievements/Trophies, optional anti-aliasing filters, widescreen borders (not that the borders are very cool, but they're better than none at all), online leaderboards (I think), and the ability to save anywhere in single-player games.

Gunstar hero on PSN is for PS3 not PSP and sells for $3 not your $12 price tag. I demand correcting this vital mistake mainly because it irritates me. Don't know why, probably for being an awesome game.


Anyway thanks EastX if you haven't mention it I wouldn't have checked and found the game actually price for PSN. That's half the price of the Wii version. Didn't know about online multiplayer that's pretty cool. It does have a leaderboard, not that it matters to me.
Trophies is none existence. You beat the game and on any difficulty and you'll get the 100% completion. There is more to the game than beating it on easy. Achievement is about trying to finish what you normally wouldn't, it is about adding a challenge and life to a game no matter how simple it is. SEGA are like that, cheap. I suppose these days they are like the Japanese EA. No better really. They even use the same achievement policy.

The screen size and the background is really an issue. Especially for a plasma TV owner in one hand and the background drawing as surprisingly plain on the other. They have an option to turn it on and off but it is almost the same one blue other is black. Simple plain, I ironically was surprised enough to not believe my own eyes and memory. These SEGA vintage stuff are quite rubbish if that how they normally are like.

To sum things up. Game is BRILLIANT. Beaten it yesterday and I still want to play more. stage design, boss, presentation and pretty much everything on it is top quality. For the low price of $3 and with online multilayer (according to EastX) I think is more than enough to cover up the Vintage and SEGA personal stamp on it.
