Raiden Fightastic Yo

I grew up playing this game in the arcade at the mall dude. I spent most money I came in contact with on Raiden Fighters. Pumpin quarters non stop baby, thats how we do on the eastside of the westside holla. If you have played this game before, its the same lovable arcade hit. If you haven't, get a couple of friends over. This game is meant for two player and you always mark "next game" with a quarter. Great times...

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.

I never played the originals, but have always beena fan of games like 1942 back on the NES>
It's fun and has excellent challenges.

Probably not worth buying unless you were a die-hard of these back in the day. It's too short otherwise and easy to get frustrated on the expert (and to somed degree Normal) level.
