Excellent review. The Raiden series has always kind of interested me, and I have the newer installments but not this one yet that I can recall. I will probably try to get it at some point, but your writeup does a good job of tempering expectations. The stuff Moss crafted sounds a lot better in most respects. By the way, when you go to insert your screenshots, you might want to revisit this sentence: "Raiden is ruthless because it doesn't give you much chance to breath and constantly invades your craft's personal space." That should be "breathe" instead of "breath." Thanks for the review!

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Thanks for pointing out the error! I was going to change it, but then the site went down right before I was heading off to work, heh.

I've been curious about the Raiden series for some time myself, but never put aside time for it. A few years back, I even got the Raiden Project compilation for the PS1 with the intention of diving in, but again it escaped me... I never flatout said this in the review, but I will say: I still don't get the appeal of the first game. I can see with the following titles, but everytime I look back on the first title, I'm like, "This started a series?" But money talks, I guess.

Thanks for the comments!

I head spaceshit noises.
