Best Xbox exclusives : GunValkyrie

Recommended Posts

GunValkyrie (Exclusive Thumbstick Replacement)
GunValkyrie sold Stockholm Syndrome on a disc well before Demon's Souls did. Supposedly starting life as a light-gun shooter for the Dreamcast, GunValkyrie morphed into a fast-paced gauntlet that was challenging in just about every way -- even physically.

There's not much elegance to the shooting itself, but the trick to overcoming the game's horde of aggressive space bugs is in your futuristic, rocket-equipped suit of armor. Manipulating both thumbsticks correctly allows you to hover in mid-air, dash forward and backwards, and rotate in 90- or 180-degree bursts. It's a complicated mess of clicking and recharging that eventually becomes second nature, provided you've got time and endurance enough to think about three-dimensional movement through, above, and below clusters of enemies. The reward is robust, improvisational movement that hasn't quite been replicated in any game since.

(Bonus points if you finished GunValkyrie on the original Xbox controller and not the Controller S.)
