Treasure's Ikaruga was one of the big reasons I bought a GameCube. While this game was available on the Dreamcast, it sold out so fast and copies were going for inflated prices. Ikaruga was also a sequel to Radiant Silvergun which I owned on the Saturn. Granted, I believe that Radiant Silvergun is superior to Ikaruga, but the latter is the more accessible 2D shooter due to it's more minimalistic play mechanics.
Did you own Ikaruga on the GameCube?

And if you did, what did you think of it?
