Within the vastness of this great Universe, a fierce battle was fought, resulting in the disappearance of a planet. This prompted various evolving life forms which have been under long hibernation to emerge one after another. Amnelia Royal Cosmic Force challenged these unknown intruders but unfortunately suffered a miserable defeat. However, they did manage to complete a unique and sophisticated fighter craft, using the forbidden enemy power and technology. They named it Silver Hawk.
G-Darius is another game of the great Darius shooter series. The G stands for both Gigantic and Genesis. It is one of the best arcade shooters ever created for the Playstation and features single and 2-players mode. Your mission is to fly through 5 different stages, shooting large numbers of enemies. You can also capture enemies launching a weird ball-like weapon and use them as extra firepower against the hordes. To complete each level you are forced to battle against a gigantic mothership, each having its own powers and weaknesses. Most of these ships are difficult to engage, so you may need some strategy in order to nail them.
The graphics are fantastic, the perspective changes from 2D to pseudo-3D with a fascinating technique. Hundreds of colors mix together to make each and every detail plain beautiful. The action is intense and crazy. Graphicaly, the PSX conversion is quite similar to the original (arcades) version. Sonically, the game leaves the impression that you possess a real arcade machine in your room. G-Darius is one of the games that took Playstation's hardware to its limits.
