Chōjikū Yōsai Macross Scrambled Valkyrie is a horizontal shooter by Winky Soft/Zamuse based on the popular animation series of the same name (known as Robotech in the west). In the future, humanity is engaged in a war against giant humanoid aliens called the Zentraedi after one of their spaceship accidentally crashes on Earth. The game follows the popular Macross formula and features giant transformable fighter-jets. Each one of the three selectable characters (Hikaru, Max and Milia) comes with his own tactical fighter capable of changing into three attack modes :Fighter, Gerwalk and Battroid. Each Veritech comes equipped with a specific weapon system ranging from standard Vulcan guns to homing shots, laser-shields or wave-beams. These weapons are upgraded by collecting multiple "P" pods that float throughout the game. Each attack form upgrades separately up to a maximum of three times and a direct hit automatically downgrades the current active weapons. Although the player can switch from one attack form to another at will, they feature different speeds and maneuverability characteristics. They also all share a special weapon called the Mingmei cannon - a special force field wraps around the Veritech when weapons are idle a fews seconds. When in this mode, the fighter can capture standard enemies ships and use them as shields or as secondary weapon/ally.

Here is probably one of the best (if not the best) Macross shooter ever made for home consoles gaming. Macross Scrambled Valkyrie, despite featuring one of the funniest "engrish" name ever, is a fantastic and beautiful shooter with some truly superb bosses, flawless controls and utterly breathtaking action. The first couple of levels set the mood - powerful spaceships warping out from deep space, lightning bolts ionizing the air and creating columns of plasma and so forth. Everything in the game has been given a nice amount of detail and effort. The difficulty level is just a tad on the steep side though but you get a fair amount of continues if you know where to find them. All in all, Macross Scrambled Valkyrie is easily one of the best Macross game out there and it will satisfy Macross and shooter fans equally. A must have.
