An excellent space shooter from Core Design.  In each level the player controls one of 3 vehicles - a space craft with 2 degrees of freedom, a VTOL craft with full freedom of movement, or a walker.  Difficulty is  not selectable, but rather determined by which warp gate the player selects inside the alien mother ship at the end of the first level, and all 6 levels across 3 difficulty settings must be cleared to complete the game.  The enhanced scaling abilities of the Mega-CD are again used to good effect, though the screen can sometimes become cluttered, and the symphonic sound track suits the action surprisingly well.  SoulStar makes use of the 6-button pad but is perfectly playable with a standard pad.  Note that the 2-player mode is cooperative rather than hotseat play.
A demo CD was given away with an issue of Mega Power, followed by a 2-in-1 demo disc which also contained the first level of Battlecorps (free with Mega Power issue 14).  The demo was then re-released with issue 49 of Sega Pro CD as the SoulStar Paragon Publishing demo.

A cover variation with German text on the back was also released.
