This collection of Raiden is exactly what it sets out to be: arcade-perfects ports of the Raiden Fighters games. It is no less, but is certainly more! All the features you expect in a console Raiden game, such as saving replays, tons of modes, full control over game settings, and extra content from the developer. And why not get some achievements while you're at it? Now sure, the aspect ratio of the game does not allow for the entire screen to be taken up, but why would it? This is a port of the arcade game, and as such it is exactly how it looks in the arcade. If your TV is big enough, it's not a problem. Also, these games came out over a decade ago, so the graphic quality is up to par for a 2D shooter from then - beautiful, I say. Lovely, lovely game if you like shmups and Raiden especially - 3 great games in one.
3 nostalgic games for the price of one 19.99 at major retailers. It really brought me back to my NES, SNES and arcade days. DO NOT EXPECT over the top graphics and controllers these games are school bird's eye games.
