Man, I didn't even know this existed. With how "well" porting this game worked on the SNES as Super R-Type, you'd wonder why they'd even try putting it on the GB.

I didn't know either, until I happened upon it at a secondhand store. I was so excited. And then I started playing. The only positive is that the glitches make it comparatively easy, so you can say, "I beat R-Type II without continuing"... which is like, impossible to say otherwise.

Sweet crap! This sounds about as terrible as the GBA port of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance.

Yeesh, you weren't kidding about its rarity, I took a quick look on ebay and only found incomplete copies of it being sold from the UK. Nicely written review, by the way! Really sounds like it's not worth tracking down.

Just outta curiosity...

Was this review based on the standalone game or was it based off the R-Type DX release?

This leads me to believe you didn't read the review before commenting...

Black and white standalone.

Thanks, Pickhut.

Those aren't words to be tossed around lightly. Although the GBA port of the PS2 Gauntlet game is even worse.
