Just out of curiosity
Which "light gun" wii, ps3 or 360 games can this be turned off?
Seems like an easy feature yet I´ve never seen it in Razing storm or HOTDIII, dunno about other games.

I suspect the cursor can be configurable... it was in HOTD III (iirc).

Razing Storm has a cursor in the arcade too.

You were lucky then....

After 6 1/2hrs mine had only completed 25%. Left it on overnight and checked this morning...... guess what - it had crapped out! Started it again and guess what..... it's starts from nothing again!

PSN infrastructure is a proper piece of ****!

Wow, what a game. I have never played it before and even though I have seen videos, i was blown away. This game is intense.
HOTDIII seems like a picknick compared to this. Not that that is a bad thing. I love both games.
HOTD4 is stellar and I give it a 10/10. This game is insane....ly good. Alot of work went into this baby.
And it´s only €7,99, that´s amazing value. Regarding it´s low price it´s easily the best deal/game ever on psn. Visuals are stellar. Controls consist of shooting, reload, on the Sharp Shooter again like in HOTDIII, the shot gun style reload lever. And now there are grenades, which can be dropped by a variety of buttons. I read in the tips section that keeping the grenade button pressed longer will throw it further.
4GB dl and another 4GB to install it :awe:

I think its pretty close as close as can be, only the lack of a proper gun let it down, but this has nearly always been the case with lightgun ports, 1 thing I did noticed although hardly important is that after the "how to play demo" in the arcade it then shows some gp footage which is missing from the home version & some text looks like it may have been changed, had to adjust my colour at first as some looked a little bright/glaring, clearly much more time was spent on this than HOTD3.

Prob spent more time playing SP, but obviously that is not the same as the arcade due to it been more of a ride, a few changes were present in the home version that makes the game much easier, same life system as HOTD4 not the 1 bar of energy for both players with no continues like in the arcade, SP intro would of been nice too.




Cost 50k, 3 phase 415v needed to run, kinder expected HOTD4SP to be a little longer like "Lets go jungle special" which was sold as a upgrade/conversion kit for HOTD4SP Afaik.

Overall I'm really impressed.

It looks fabulous. Must be the same port team behind Afterburner Climax and Daytona. Good game, only let down by the lack of a proper gun. Dialogue is as hilarious as always.
