Top 5 Arrange Modes
« on: April 23, 2010, 12:53:29 PM »
Arcade black labels do not count. Yes, this is so I can sneak in EspII BL.  :righton:
5PB ports count if you feel like it.


1.  Deathsmiles MBL 1.1 (I am a simple man who enjoys recharging over and over)
2.  EspGaluda II Black Label
3.  Mushihimesama Arrange
4.  Espgaluda Arrange (would put this higher but the difficulty is super high)
5.  Espgaluda II iPhone mode (yep)

1)Ketsui X-Mode (you could put this in a Japanese arcade for 100 yen a pop and there'd always be a line)
2)Espgaluda 2 Arrange (YGW power)
3)Mushihimesama Arrange (would be near perfect if it didn't have an autobomb or the hideous blur filter)
4)DDPDOJ X-Mode (some glitches and balance issues and the ugly green hyper laser lessen the awesomeness of this, but it's still lots of fun. Needs a ver 1.5)
5)Everything else (who cares)

Cave arrange modes are generally quite blah, and some are complete crap (I'm looking at you, Futari). 5pb knows how to make really good ones, for some strange reason. Lots of people love Espgaluda's Arrange, but try as I may I've never liked it.

Reviving this thread as many new arrange modes were created over the years. I'm curious to see if some arrange modes grew on some of you since then.

I tried to make a list of all the arrange mode available on home releases.

I excluded :

- Black Label modes that had an Arcade releases
- Same mode that have slight differences in scoring/playability across different releases, that have split scoring tables (e.g. Deathsmiles 360 vs Arcade, DDP DFK Arrange 360 vs Steam)
- Mobile ports
- Hacks (e.g. Pink Sweets Suicide Club, Progear Red)
- exA exclusives modes as they are proper arcade releases
- Some modes that are not a complete game (e.g. Ketsui Death Label DS, DDP DOJ Death Label PS2)
- Pink Sweets Limited Version sold to consumer (couldn't find any info or footage)

I included :

- Some Matsuri modes that were released as DLC or extra content on home releases as they were not widely available in arcades
- Previously home releases exclusive arrange modes that are now on arcade releases (e.g. AK Shin and Zetsu on exA and Nesica)

So here's what I have come up with :

Akai Katana Shin (Slash) - 360/exA
Akai Katana Zetsu (Climax) - 360/exA
Akai Katana Limited Red - PCB
Akai Katana Limited White - PCB
Dangun Feveron Fever - PS4
Deathsmiles 1.1 - 360/PC
Deathsmiles Mega Black Label 1.1 - 360/PC
Deathsmiles 2 X - 360
Deathsmiles 2 Arrange - 360
Dodonpachi Saturn - Saturn
Dodonpachi Daioujou X - 360
Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu Black Label Arrange (Ketsuipachi) - 360/PC/SW
Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu 1.5 Arrange A (VER L) - 360/PC/SW
Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu 1.51 - 360/PC/SW
Dodonpachi Saidaioujou X360 - 360/exA
Dodonpachi Saidaioujou 1.5 - 360
Espgaluda Arrange - PS2
Espgaluda 2 Arrange - 360/SW
Espgaluda 2 Black Label - 360/SW
Espgaluda 2 Omake - 360/SW
Esp Ra. De. Psi Arcade Plus - PS4/SW
Guwange 360 - 360
Guwange Blue - 360
Ibara Arrange - PS2
Ketsui Deathtiny - PS4
Ketsui IKD 2007 - PS4
Ketsui X - PS3/360
Mushihimesama Arrange - PS2
Mushihimesama Arrange - 360/PC/SW
Mushihimesama Matsuri 1.5 - 360/PC/SW
Mushihimesama Futari Arrange - 360
Mushihimesama Futari 1.01 - 360
Muchi Muchi Pork 1.01 (w/ or w/o Harahara / Manpuku) - 360
Muchi Muchi Pork Arrange - 360
Muchi Muchi Pork Matsuri - 360
Pink Sweets 1.01 - 360
Pink Sweets Arrange - 360

Feel free to discuss/comment about the list to add or remove stuff.

I'll post my Top 5 soon as I want to revisit some modes myself.

I like:

Muchi Muchi Pork Matsuri
Mushihimesama Futari 1.01
Muchi Muchi Pork 1.01
Ketsui X Mode
DOJ X Mode
Deathsmiles IIX Mode

Probably in that order, more or less. Two 5pb arrange modes in there! Imagine that.

I don't care for the others, really (well, ESP2 Arrange is still interesting, at least).
