Why does Raiden seem to be one of the first shooters to come out for each new system? Anyway. Raiden Project is a timeless shooter and is now even better because you get Raiden I & II on the same disc. If you remember. Raiden I was quite easy and still is. However. Raiden II is a real challenge! The power-ups actually do something useful as well. Shooter fans, don't pass up Raiden Project. There may not be another one like this.
I like shooters a lot, and it's nice to know there are still some good-quality blasters being made. Raiden is a good translation of the arcade version with all the great power-ups and weapons that made it so fun. The graphics are awesome with superb detail. The explosive sound is a blast (pun intended)! The extra prequel game is an added bonus and the two-player feature is nice. Fans of the arcade should seriously consider taking this home, especially shooter fans.
Two games on one CD. I like it. While I'd rather play the sequel over the first game, having it there is nice for nostalgia. The graphics are better than the arcade, and the game plays perfectly. Raiden is a hard game. Both versions are excellent, and the effects in Raiden II are really cool. Check out that bizarre stretch beam. The music is decent, too. If you're a fan of the coin-op, then the PlayStation version is for you. This is the best conversion of Raiden to date.
This is Raiden to a tee. The arcade translation was done very well. It did look a little weak at first since I have already played through Raiden DX. but with the limited number of shooters it was still a welcome sight. Fans of the series will simply love it and those not familiar will be impressed by the challenge and cool weapons (especially the pink wave). As an added bonus, you get two games on one CD! As a first entry into the shooter genre for the PlayStation, it is a good effort.
