Summary: I really enjoy top down and side scrolling shooters, so take this opinion with that in mind. The only problem with R-Type is that dying sucks. When you die you restart from a usually bad position without any powerups.
Summary: R-Type Final goes to show that as gamers we have gotten soft in recent years. My reflexes are slow, my hand-eye coordination is out of alignment, my eyes get sore after forgetting to blink after a couple of hours, and I forgot how much fun you can have actually playing a game.
Summary: Other than r-type for SNES, I've never really played muuch else in terms of the series. However, I'm glad to say that I purchased this one for PS2. Graphics and control aside, I think it's the game mechanics which make this such a fun game.
Summary: If your tired of all the first person shooters and RPGS... This game rocks.. It was 1990 all over again for me.. Love the game.. Since i didnt have anm original playstation I can only comment that the 3d effects they added in this version make the game more appealling for me :) The only issue I have...
Summary: I'm a newbie to the Type R game series. Nevertheless, the game itself is very easy to pick up, and more importantly, is very fun to play. The gameplay hearkens back to the early '90's side -scroller space shooters. But this game is fully up-to-date.
Summary: A challenging game with hundred of ships, several hidden bonus levels, several endings, several levels of difficulty, a new versus mode, great gameplay, excellent graphics, and a decent soundtrack.
