Summary: : Raiden Fighters Aces is a fantastic compilation of three outstanding games at a budget price that fans of shooters should make every effort to pick up as soon as possible. The visuals and audio have held up nicely in the decade since the initial releases of each of the games, the games themselves are fast-paced fun for one or two players.
Conclusion: It's also a good way to get a jump on two more achievements wilcus hunter and the fairy collector achievement. Over all I give this game a 4 out of 5, it's none stop action with a small price tag. The inclusion of a two player multi player would have made this title a 5 but, for $20.00 I'm not complaining. Have fun and a great game.
Excerpt: Originally released in arcades between 1996 and 1998, the three Raiden Fighters games were conventional but very solid vertically scrolling shooters. Now, all three titles have been compiled and released as Raiden Fighters Aces, and the quality of these games makes them as competent now as they were back in the day.
Pros: Three solid arcade shooters at one low price, Can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels, Arcade-perfect emulation
Cons: Only about an hour of actual game content, No online cooperative play
Conclusion: I missed the three games in the Raiden series; by the time they came along, I was out of college and not frequenting arcades like I once had. And considering that none of the series made it onto consoles, it’s easy to see why I missed it. It’s too bad I did, because that old Raiden love comes through, though with some interesting twists on the old classic.
Conclusion: Wer sich auch nur im geringsten für 2D-Shooter interessiert, für den sollte klar sein, dass "Raiden Fighters Aces" ein Pflichtkauf ist. Alle drei Titel protzen mit coolen, abwechslungsreichen Stages, einer unglaublichen Spieltiefe und etlichen abwechslungsreichen Schiffen. Wer hier auf Punkte spielt, der wird für Wochen oder Monate motiviert sein, immer wieder neu auf die Highscorejagd zu gehen.
