Dodonpachi Resurrection (Daifukkatsu in Japan) is the fifth game in Cave's flagship DonPachi series. After the turmoil caused by the assault on Lunapolis which sparked the "Blissful Death Wars" (as depicted in the previous installment), peace seems to have been restored, with the legendary DonPachi Corps retreating to its HQ in a space-time fold. Six years later, anomalies are detected in the space-time fabric, yet tests reveal nothing out of order, with the portals regularly functioning for both teleportation and time travel; also, the leader of the DonPachi squadron Colonel Longhena Gottvin dismisses the matter due to the lack of actual danger.

Nevertheless, a technician delves deeper into the anomaly, discovering that something has infiltrated the HQ computer systems and is using the portals to send large quantities of materials and data to the past, spreading out like a virus and quickly evolving. Unsettled, the Colonel authorizes the last transport ship to time jump in order to fight back the invasion before future changes.

Once again, the three pilots jump back in time to 2008 and enter the fray, the transport ship being targeted as soon as it exits the portal: the Element Daughters, gigantic evolutions of the Dolls, are awaiting... The bee is still humming.

  • Xbox 360 only features: Now players can experience Dodonpachi Resurrection the way it was intended, for arcades. Challenge the complex scoring system of Arcade mode in full HD resolution with an arcade stick or Xbox 360 controller.
  • An AI that adapts to the player: Dodonpachi Resurrection for Xbox 360 features a remixed mode "Arrange B" which adjusts itself according to the user's play style. With every play-through, bullets increase or decrease according to skill. With each clear, enemies get harder to kill and more bullets fill the screen, on the other hand giving incredible scoring opportunities. The only stop to this progression is the skill of the player him or herself.
  • A tribute to a classic: Exclusive to the console release, "Arrange A" is the second remixed mode included with "Resurrection", which borrows some of the gameplay mechanics of PS2 shooter classic and prequel "Daioujou" for a massive challenge
  • Online scoreboards and replays: Dodonpachi Resurrection features online scoreboards and replays to let you compare your scores to friends as well as the best of the best. Online score sharing is a huge step over the PS2 days and conveys the relevance of point-based games much better than any offline console has ever done.
  • Arcade mode: A faithful port of the arcade classic. Fight through the bullets to put an end to NEXY's nefarious plot
  • Slowdown, integral to the dodging experience, reproduced for fans of the arcade. A faithful port of the arcade version
  • Includes a fully-featured Triangle mode for boosting your high score and getting past tough bosses
  • A tribute to Daioujou:
  • Bringing back the original ship from Dodonpachi Daioujou, this mode allows players to use their "hyper" to slow down bullets and earn lots of points.
  • Featuring an original game system designed by the godfather of CAVE games himself, Tsuneki Ikeda
  • Endless progression:
  • Revamped Game System
  • Revamped Scoring
  • Game scales its difficulty to player ability. Die a few times and watch the bullet count drop. Clear the game a few times and watch enemies get stronger, and the bullet count climb.
  • The more you play, the harder it gets!
  • Download other player's replays to see how the system has adapted to their styles.
  • Deluxe edition:
  • Included in the Japanese limited edition is a Remix Album by "Resonator", a veteran game music unit from Japan

4 seperate modes to blast through, mix and match from 3 ships and 3 play styles for them. And blast, dodge and hyper your way through 5 levels of bullet madness.
Unless you put it on novice mode then it's seriously easy.
However, the true appeal to this game, as with most of these style of shooters, is the scores, whether you're a perfectionist like me and constantly pushing your own damn score because of tha one bullet that hit you and screwed your hit counter! Or you use score attack mode to se how you compare against others over live leaderboards, that is where the fun comes into it.
Being able to record replays of your runs, and indeed watch those of the people who are able to run the hardest modes with not a single fault is a great feature.

So in much much shorter, If you like scrolling shooters, reflex testing, and constantly striving to beat your score and those of people you've never met, this is sheer quality.
Oh and if you like to dream in a barrage of pink and blue circles also helps.

I picked this game up for a stupidly cheap price today, and although I have not given it a full go yet, I have already completed the game within 30 minutes on novice mode. There are only five levels, and these are quick and painless to get through. If you pay full price for this game, then the rating really should be demoted to a one or two star, For me though, I had some quick and cheap fun for a fiver.
