You have two choices on how to play Death Crimson OX
, with a controller or with a gun. What do you think is better? Seriously, if you go out and buy this game, spend the 30-40 dollars on a light gun (or two), and you will fall in love. If you plan to play with a standard controller, frustration will, I'm sure, set in quickly.
So there you have it. Death Crimson OX is an arcade shooter, and a good one at that. Along with Mission Mode and Story Mode comes the new Bullet Mode. Playing in Bullet Mode is a great way to practice your aiming and overall gameplay. Here, you are basically allowed 10 misses. For every hit, you score points. Your goal: To get the high score. Don't waste shots, or you have no chance of becoming number one. I can see Bullet Mode as a great party game!
Mission Mode simply allows you to play any of the six missions by choosing them. This is another good way to practice for the big game... Story Mode. In Story mode, you only have to defeat one level to continue onto the next. Sound simple? HA! Six levels doesn't sound like much, but trust me, it's plenty. (Although, it would be cool to have more levels in Mission Mode.) The difference between Mission and Story is that in Story Mode, you get to watch cut-scenes with your characters. Also included in the game is the ability to gain Experience Points. EPs increase with every hit and decrease with every miss. Fill your EPs, and your life increases (bullets increase in Bullet Mode). Another cool addition is the ability to pick up temporary Machine Guns and helpful bonuses.
