2D shooter fans will have a ball with this region-free Xbox One import.
I'd love to see old-school games like these released in the States.
Comments?

Nice review and a bit of a surprise. I didn't think you'd end up caring for how this one evolved and some of the additions they made to the formula.

And I don't see 16:9 working for a vertical shooter like this, so I'm glad it's pillarboxed and only takes up 1/3 of the screen. That's a tradition worth preserving for playability, even if modern shooters don't have any roots to arcade releases running on vertically oriented 3:4 monitors.

As i said in the now playing board I have been a rabid fan of Raiden since it first came out. It is like the pac man of shooters, that definitive title that has all the stuff you love in one neat little package.

Though if you had downloaded it when I said you could have saved yourself a packet!!!

I voted it A plus.
