Jeesh, why the hate? It's a fine game, nothing special, nothing terrible. It's old school shootemup with rocket-launching mechs of death and gigantic boss fights wrapped up in a relatively good game engine.
You think those guys actually played the game enough to form a valid opinion?
Anyway, it's actually a great port of a so-so game. Not my cup of tea, but its quality doesn't suffer because of its console->PC nature.
