R-Type Final review

Reviewed March 06, 2004

Jason Venter says: "But it's worth all the agony, the memorization, and the sweaty palms, because there's little in the world of videogames that can compare to the feeling that you're 'in the zone' as you weave effortlessly through scores of enemy bullets and ships. Not only that, but this is one of the best looking shooters ever crafted."

Marc Golding says: "How do you uphold a legacy and follow one of the best games ever made? Final is inferior to Delta, there's no doubt of that. The actual gameplay isn't on the same level: Delta boasted seven ideally crafted stages with beautiful music and detailed background designs. Given the PS2's greater capacity, Final is almost a step backward, only managing an inspiring CGI intro, a handful of standout stages and possibly a single great tune. Final seems to concede level design to its older sibling, concentrating on something else entirely to be its unique selling point. "

R-Type Final review

Reviewed February 13, 2005

Sclem says: "The Bydo Empire has been terrorizing the universe since about mid-eighties now and had no plans to stop. Well, that was until Irem decided to end the shooter series R-type with one last game. My incorrigible side didnít want to believe such nonsense ďOne of the greatest series in shooter history just canít end can it?Ē Much to my dismay, Iíd look like I was only getting one more go around against the Bydo Empire and all their evil machinations.
