Summary: Definitely one of my new favorite shoot 'em ups, unlocking ships and trying them all out is great fun, and the game itself is hellishly difficult, but intensely satisfying with every conquered level.
Summary: It's been quite the ride. From the original arcade series, to console Deltas, to little known Leos, R-Type has a rich history. R-Type Final enters the fight with high expectations. From a glance, this is the R-Type we know and love. We get side scrolling levels, powerups that absorb bullets, and Bydo enemies that are easily recognizable as Bydo. R-Type Final has good consistency with the rest of the series. Where this game really shines is customization.
Summary: R-Type series is a classic SHMUP [Shoot em Up] series that well know for its stunning visuals and great difficulty, R-Type Final does not disappoint. The 2.5-D graphics are beautiful and push the PS2 to it's limits, because of this there is inevitable slow down/slight framerate drops. Use this to your advantage. You can set the difficulty to your choosing.
Summary: Great ps2 game, definitely showcases the ps2's graphical capabilities. The game itself hold true to the R-type series, lots of enemies, a tonne of ships and customization, and crippling difficulty!
