XII Stag is an auto-scrolling overhead shooter that tests your shooting accuracy and agility.
The essence of any rail shooter boils down to two sentences. We're under attack! Let's kill them all! You are the pilot of the newest space fighter and your task is to destroy all the aliens. Opponents also control military combat vehicles equipped with a variety of powerful weapons. I hate to spoilers, but the last boss resembles a symbiosis of a giant human chest and a spaceship. Have you seen something like this anywhere?
The game automatically assesses your level of training, and depending on the accumulated bonuses it raises the difficulty level. Unusually, you can shoot not only forward, but also backward, right, and left.
- Many gamers consider the game the best rail shooter for PS2
- Futuristic setting
- Very fast-paced action
- Don't expect a gold star at the end - the developers didn't make the ending after the last boss at all, but just let the credits roll
