eXceed - Gun Bullet Children
Humanity is at war against vampires and deviants. Mankind’s last line of defense is a group of children trained to wield powerful magic that can rival the demonic hordes, but at the cost of most of their lifespan. Likened to bullets of a gun, they are known as the ‘Gun Bullet Children’. The time is NOW! A vampire invasion force has been detected in the airspace above Tokyo Portal 5. Preliminary reports indicate over 500 vampires and accompanying Killings Dolls with reinforcing hordes of deviant humans. The first line of defenses has been obliterated and the Gun Bullet Children are scrambled to launch a counter-assault and stop the invasion.

This is my review for this game on Steam platform: http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/207370/
Ever played Touhou? Or some kind of shmup games? This one is called "bullet hell" and is hard to play, even on easy settings. The 2nd and 3rd eXceed game of course would be a better choice, but since the complete pack is cheaper and include the 1st eXceed game, why not pay less and get also this one?
In my opinion, this one is not bad - except you need to do extra work to make it play in window mode (check the forums), and if you want to know what the girls are talking about you need to install translation (which also can be found on forums). If you pay no attention to this two things, this can be enjoyable without doing anything.
If you are into this genre then you can't miss this one.
A nice shoot'em upCavalieroscuro | Jan. 25, 2013 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
Exceed is a very good shoot'em up, japanese style. It's not a long game, but his unique style (using anime-like character) can make the happiness of fan. The very interesting thing about Exceed is the dynamic difficulty setting: the more you are able to proceed trough the game, the more the game change the difficulty adapting it to your skill. This, and tha fact that three characters ara available with their unique campaign, can grant hours of gameplay if you like the genre.
