I found it really good in the one player mode.. but total confusing when playing with 4. :)

Agree!  :)

shooters are solo challenging games. 1 credit, one run : die and retry.

Agree!  :)


It's true it can be confusing when 4 'casual modern shooter' players are on the game. In that case it's more a fun competition for scoring! (like Galaxian3), and you don't really have time to really enjoy the beauty of the graphics, the effects, and the WONDERFUL Zuntata musics tracks  :-* In this scenario you really don't care about the use of the credits to finish the levels...
When more 'experimented' players are on, it's time for cooperative strategies... especially because the different ships you can select are different in the use of the key weapon of the game : the use of the BURST! It's like Gauntlet... several characters with their own specific characteristics. 

When played alone (which is my case 95% of the time), it's an incredible experience. Learning patterns, elaborate strategies to defeat bosses, finish the level with one credit, scoring... and enjoy the beauty of this game!  :-*
Now that the Chronicle mode is unlocked, it's more than an arcade game, it's now a game with HUNDREDS of levels!!!
This DariusBurst EX is the best experience I ever had on 'modern' arcade game! I strongly recommend this cabinet! TAITO RULEZ!  :-*

They have a special event going on for Darius Burst EX at Taito HEY in Akihabara, Tokyo, with the whole set of the Darius series along with some EX's.

The Taito HEY is the building on the left of the far Sega arcade that has the Darius Burst billboard all the way down...


Original Darius triple screen:


Darius II on some odd large screen setup:


Darius Burst EX (screen photo):


Egrets all dedicated to shmups. They had the rest of the Darius series in these along with famous shmups from the 80's onwards:

Back from a two hours session of DBAC... it seems that I can't get bored of that fantastic game... I'm discovering new things every games!  :o
I said it thousands times here, but the soundtracks of the game are totally amazing!!!  :-* :-* :-*

I suppose it's good that this game had LCD monitors. Imagine trying to move this beast if it had CRT's?!?

this would be a great game for a collectors edition with a ship model for example.
since the game has a limited audience anway i am pretty sure many people would love to spend money for a true collectors item.
a digital download feels worthless to me, not only because i am selling physical media. everything about my hobby is missing here except the game. but even with the game i am in the hands of the publisher. i own nothing... i only have the right to play it.
