Ikaruga LOL: Top scoring player on Live hates Xbox 360 port

0

Ikaruga frightens me. I tried to play it once and it smacked me and told me I am terrible at videogames and also not a very good human being. Other people make Ikaruga bow down to them, and I envy their majesty. One such champion has not only bent the XBLA version of Ikaruga to his almighty will, he has also verbally humiliated it, pouring salt into its shmuppy wound. See, he absolutely detests the Xbox Live Arcade port, despite becoming the top scorer on its leaderboard.

"The XBLA version of Ikaruga is a horrible port," states Kingoro58k on his gamertag bio. "This isn't Ikaruga, this is Ikaruga LOL."

Kingoro58k is offended by the number of changes found in the XBLA version versus the Dreamcast version, such as different enemy placement and the mirroring of certain elements so everything's backwards. Our resident Ikarugauthority, Topher "Mothershmupper" Cantler, considers the game a worthy port, and wasn't nearly as upset by the changes as this particularly peeved gamer.

What do you think? A case of a purist completely over-reacting because he's a knobhead, or is this port indeed worthy of the subtitle LOL, whatever he actually means by that?
