Eagle's Rider is a fun sci-fi shooter from Microids that sets itself apart from other shooters with innovative semi-360-degree movement. I call it "semi" because your ship can still move only in 4 cardinal directions. The game, however, uses innovative "chase view" camera angle and skewed perspective of objects to make you feel as if you have more freedom. Aside from this unconventional look, Eagle's Rider plays like other shooters-- avoid asteroids and shoot everything in sight to win. It doesn't have the same addictive quality as Silpheed, but is worth a look if you are new to action games or want a different playing perspective.
