Vapor Trail - Sega Genesis Review

A pretty solid shooter for the Genesis. Moderate difficulty even on the easy setting.  You can choose from 3 different planes that have different speeds and shots.  Its fun to play with all 3 and master them.  I like the idea of the score and info on the side so you can see the whole screen without distractions.  I have noticed this feature in a lot of Genesis shoot 'em up  games.  The only complaint I really have about the game, is that the power ups are few and far between.  It seems like it takes at least half of one stage to get a shot power up.  Then when you get the power up, it doesn't seem like it is much more powerful.  You have to grind for sure to power your ship up.  The music in this game is some of the best I have heard on the Genesis but it does get repetitive very quick.  Game play is fun and keeps you interested so you want to keep playing.  Not the best shooter on the system but solid for sure.  Overall, I give it a 7 out of 10 stars, pretty good, but there is room for improvement.  I recommend that you try it out.
