While this is technically of that rare breed of Asian-developed first-person shooters, it honestly hardly even counts as one. This is a straight-laced airsoft/paintball sim through and through, which means that in every mode it's one hit and you're out. The controls are merely passable, and the visuals are so muddy and indistinct that they'd look at home on the N64. It seems like most of what little budget they had was spent on hiring a voice actor to read the specs for a bunch of airsoft guns out loud for an in-game database mode.

Somehow managed to actually get a sequel, and the developer churned out a couple more similar games on the PSP as well. Airsoft is big in Japan, sure -- probably owing to the extremely strict regulations on regular firearms -- but is there really that much of a market for these?
