Aero Fighters 3 (Neo Geo AES / MVS review)

Developer: Video System
Publisher: SNK
Released: 1995

Aero Fighters 3 is a vertically-scrolling shooter and the follow-up to the 1994 Neo Geo sequel.

+ There are now ten playable characters (up from eight) with their own abilities and cut-scenes to aide replayability.

+ Special weapons offer interactivity, as for some characters you can control when and/or where their projectiles attack.

+ Hardly any slowdown which results in far smoother gameplay compared to the sequel.

- Offers nothing substantial to advance the series in terms of presentation, graphics, gameplay or combat.

- Stages are incredibly short and the lack of any notable moments makes them seem like filler until the bosses arrive.

- The boss fights are all very similar and there's none of the inventiveness found in the previous game.

- Backdrops are flat and lifeless, and as a result they don't fully immerse you into the action.
