Summary: If you're a shmup fan then this game certianly isn't for you. It suffers from the worst problem any shooting game can suffer from, you constantly feel underpowered. Not as bad as Karous but on par with Homura. What's worst is that you can upgrade your guns but the upgrade usually suck worst than your defualt gun. You have a green laser and a blue laser, both of which are next to useless.
Summary: Raiden 3? Sorry, but this game needs to change its name to something else. Raiden is much more than this. For you raiden lovers out there that have enjoyed raiden since the beginning, this one is a big let down in my opinion. I bought it for $6.50 total including shipping and was very anxious to get it and try it out. To my dismay, after playing it a mere hour, I was bored out of my mind, to the point where I don't even want to play it anymore. So what is it lacking?
