      A must own Shmup

      Excellent game! Here's a little info on the style of play. 8 levels with different paths. 3 ship choices with 3 weapons each that have 3 configurations each. They can be upgraded from 1-10 each by grabbing power ups. You have bombs and also a "cheer" attack which is pretty much a screen wide attack with rockets and it lasts a good amount of time. To refill it you can send a cheer (I spam it) for the mini achievements that pop up on screen which other players are getting (you'll also receive cheers). Pretty interesting mechanic and not intrusive to your game play. What I do find a little awkward is the story dialogue is going on while you're playing so you constantly hear a conversation between characters and it's also displayed in text on the right side of the screen. So if you're really into what the story has to offer it can be a distraction. Speaking of the story, it's just the dialogue along with static images, no modern day animated cutscenes or anything like that, but come on, this is a shmup. As for trophies, they're very obtainable and a few can be challenging. The game is short and fun enough that you'll probably want to keep going through it again to get them all. If you're like me and don't have an RPG amount of hours to put into a game, this is the ticket.

      Best part of this one for me is that I can turn off enemy bullets. This makes the title accessible to my 6-year old who is just showing interest in playing games with me. He's not frustrated, and we're having a blast together. Aside from the practice setting, this is a must own shoot em up. It holds up well to the original and the graphics are refined as well as voice acting being added for the story. Which leads me to a weak point in the game. The story. The story is fine, it's the presentation. Characters are talking while you're in round, but even after tweaking the settings, their voices are tough to discern from the game noises and often distract me when I try to read the subs while playing. Maybe that was the point, added distraction from the myriad of bullets. The soundtrack, however, is perfect. Brings back great memories and this copy of the game came with the soundtrack on a separate disc which I've been enjoying. If you've got the urge for a great shoot em up and you don't mind the very minor nuances that are the voices this is a great one to add to the collection.

      I've been playing the Raiden series since the first one was in the arcades and have the original on Turbografx-16 and Atari Jaguar. It's possibly the best top-down shooter series and has been for a long time running. The fifth installment is just a continuation of this trend, and it's possibly the best in the series. If you like this, also try out Caladrius Blaze; similar games and I believe the same publisher.

      If you are a fan of shoot 'em ups, you will like this game. Excellent pace with responsive controls. This genre demands a solid soundtrack playing in the background while you blast your enemies away, and Raiden V has really good one. Raiden V also has co-op which is a nice addition. Plan to turn up your TV volume and enjoy!

      Huge Raiden fan here & this is one of the better games in the franchise. The soundtrack is rockin', the gameplay is fast & challenging - though you can make it easier if you like, the graphics are the best they've been, and the replayability is off the charts. Highly recommended!

      It's awesome that this came out. A fantastic game improved further and an included soundtrack CD. One of the best shooters of out time. It's good to see the genre still alive and thriving.
