Chuhou Joutai 2 Paraided Review (Steam)

The true strength of The Real Driller is the wisdom of this Chuhou Joutai 2 Paraided Review. You won’t be exploring just Kozankyo like in Chuhou Joutai, but nearby cities as well. The new swaths of danmaku will challenge your reflexes to another level. New enemies, including mythical creatures and Crimsonite types, are also here to challenge you as well. Even after you dominated SPASDOT in Susumu Takajima and Kagami Ochiai’s previous adventure, the war against the group is still ongoing. But this time you’re going beyond Kozankyo. Travel to the east, west, and south.

Man, it’s good to be back in the world of Chuhou Joutai. Having the last game immensely, I instantly became enamored with it all over again, the graphics, the music is just so hypnotic, The gameplay is just so much fun, it evoked so many retro gaming moments, and whilst I can’t quite put my finger on it, I played through the game multiple of times and just wanted more and more of this feeling. It’s a solid piece of gaming with excellent boss fights but the music and new locations you play over are just so well executed and look fantastic. This game plays and feels the same as the last one but that’s not to demigrate it but to show how little needs to change in order to keep the good times rolling!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
