Excerpt: It was Longfellow that said, "...into each life some rain must fall," which sums up the feeling I had after playing R-Type Command . I didn't realize how much the glut of really good strategy and tactical titles for PSP recently had spoiled me, until fooling around with this game for a while.
Excerpt: R-Type Command is nothing like what I was expecting. R-Type has been known for its ultra-hard side scrolling shooting action set in space. You know the drill, save the earth from disgusting aliens and somehow you are the only ship left alive.
Summary: Atlus' R-Type Command is a deviation from the usual shoot 'em up genre into the tactical/RPG genre, giving fans of the franchise a chance to see all the units and enemies up close and personal, in 3D, while also adding 2 player versus mode.
Summary: If the 21st century has given us anything it's the ability to mix and mash completely disparate art forms together. One has to look no further than the record industry to see popular "Mash-Ups" that involve taking a little Jay-Z and mixing it with The Beatles.
Summary: If you like R-Type, this is definitely a “hit or miss” title. The look and feel of R-Type is there, but the game play is much deeper and extremely slow-paced. On the other hand, though, if you enjoy a good RTS from time to time, even if you’ve never heard of R-Type before, this game may be worth...
Pros: -Truly feels oldschool., -Extremely long., -Large amount of ships to choose from., -Cool bosses., -Very unique approach to the RTS genre., -Authentic R-Type style soundtrack.
Cons: -Load times are way too long., -Serious balance issues., -Early portion of the game may be too difficult for some people., -Graphics could have been much better with a little more effort.
Excerpt: You might think that you know the drill by now: nasty alien warriors known as Bydo have set their sights on Earth and now you're the only one who can stop them from mounting a successful invasion.
