I’ve commented before on my thoughts about the shmup genre. I’ve never been particularly good at shmups, but I respect the genre’s commitment to genuine challenge so much that I gravitate toward the genre anyway. I recently, however, found out about a shooter that I found to be perfect for people like me.

Some genres just aren’t around as much as they used to be. This is both a blessing and a curse, as the remaining games in these genres tend to be the hardest-of-hardcore, but as time moves on, said genres will slowly drift into obscurity. One such genre is the space-flight sim, which is the genre that the game I have today fits squarely in.

Section 8 has an ambitious plan going for it. It attempted to bring Tribes 2-style gameplay into the modern era of gaming, and gameplay-wise, did so fairly well.
Sadly, however, it failed to really take off.
Section 8 developer TimeGate Studios wasn’t going to be discouraged so easily, however. They recently tried again with a sequel, Section 8: Prejudice, released on the Xbox Live Arcade and PC, and soon coming to PSN.
