Good customization, but has pacing issues.

  • 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.

The Return of R-Type?

Strategos "The Guardian of Time", Amazon

  • Summary: My experience with R-Type is limited, but I LOVE side-scrolling and top-down shooters. I have played the original R-Types (just a bit), as well as the excellent freeware G-Type (a combination of R-Type and Gradius). As much as I was wishing for the second coming of the only shooter that can maybe rival Gradius in the category of old-school cool, this game just ain't that great. First of all, the graphics are nice. Not mind-blowing ala Ikaruga or Dodanpochi, but nice.

Passable

  • Summary: The game is playable, but as the 'final' R-Type this has to be something of a disappointment. The early levels are uninspired (it does get better, eventually) and it just doesn't feel like classic R-Type. If you're looking for a PS2 shmup then go with Gradius V instead.

It's not bad, just a little dull and repetitive

  • Summary: It's not a bad game at all- infact, if you own a PS2 and love old-school side-scrolling shooters then this will be right up your street. The graphics are 3D (though the game basically takes place in a 2D plane) and look very nice, with some excellent effects cropping up from time to time. R-Type Final plays very much like its predecessors, and does hold up to them very well.

Unwürdiges Ende

Angelofdestiny, Amazon

  • Summary: Die R-Type-Serie war für mich immer die Referenz unter den Shootern. Bizarre Grafik, ansprechende Musik, intelligentes Leveldesign und das einzigartige Force Pod-Waffensystem haben diese Spiele von allen anderen abgehoben. In R-Type Final ist davon leider wenig übrig. Die Grafik ist aufwendig, aber wirkt etwas dunkel und trist, trist war allerdings auch R-Type 2.

Fast gut

  • Summary: Klassische Ballerspiele im Stil der R-Type Serie, Katakis, Z-Out oder der Gradius Reihe sind auf der derzeitigen Konsolengeneration leider nur sehr rar gesäht. Um so mehr freut sich der Shooter Fan auf den letzten Teil der R-Type Serie für die PS2. R-Type Final ist leider nur ein fast gutes Spiel, es gibt doch die ein oder andere Macke: Die wirklich ansprechende Grafik wird durch Geruckel getrübt, was doch sehr den Spielfluß hemmt.
