Excellent turn-based strategy

James J., Newegg
12 May 2009
  • Summary: If you are a fan of turn-based strategy and aren't locked into the notion that all R-Type games must be frantic shooters, you'll enjoy this game. Most maps are long and narrow and require wiping out all enemies as you move towards a goal. What makes the game interesting is the unit variety.
  • Pros: Nice map and enemy variety, deep strategy without being overly complicated, no memorization required (unit details available at a glance).
  • Cons: Poor ending, long load times for battle animations, clunky menu interface (in main menu, not during battle).

  • Summary: I read a number of reviews and hesitated at first. But when it hit discount I figured I had nothing to lose. As the other reviewers noted, this is not the classic R-Type game. It is a strategy game along the lines of the traditional hex-based wargames.

Other than that I have no idea what the game does, it did come with a model of one of the spaceships in the game, he loved that because he...

An effective strategy offshoot of the R-Type series

Roy Basilisk, Amazon
28 August 2008
  • Summary: The R-Type series takes an interesting detour with this competent hex-grid strategy game. It mixes the flashy style of the classic shooters with slower-paced balancing of tactical considerations. It is important to note that the flashy animations are entirely optional.

Thinking Mans R-Type - Total Fun

Kevin P. Gibbs, Amazon
26 May 2008
  • Summary: I like this game, in fact after playing it for a month I'm declaring it my favorite PSP game, and I have all the must plays. I'd give it 5 stars but I can't edit that. It's a lot different than the older R-Types which I've all played. First, you can save whenever you want.
