Summary: I grew up plugging quarters into R-type video game. I probably should have done more research into THIS PSP game but once I got it I was dissapointed to say the least. The canned animations may look cool but the game play is about as sophisticated as games I have played on my first commodor 64. A hex grid turn by turn game played on a state of the art hand held console capable of 3D real time animation and interface????? REALLY? turn by turn hex game play!?!??!
Summary: The R-Type series have always been fun...so I have never hesitated to purchase before reading about their reviews...and sorry to say I was so disappointed in this debacle of a game. Who in their right mind took the most beloved space shooter and use that game's name to destroy its reputation. I also enjoy strategy games but this is not even a good strategy game. It was frustrating confusing and boring to say the least. Rent before buying!
