Raiden III (Ps2) Review
A port of the classic arcade shooter, complete with a stage select mode that lets you replay stages once you've cleared them. Grudgingly received with a score of 62% from 9 reviews on Metacritic.com with some disquiet about the pricing.
Raiden III is a good shmup.
Hasn't a chance of competing with exciting modern shooters Look elsewhere for your shoot-'em-up thrills.
Fans will probably enjoy it, even if there’s little that stands out other than the Dual mode
Even with flaws, it achieves what it sets out to do, deliver "destroy everything"-themed action
If you're really curious about Raiden III, a rental should satisfy your itch.
Doesn't do anything unique to stand out from other modern shoot-'em-ups, and that it isn't priced at a flat-out budget rate is a bit disquieting.
Single-player mode enables you to control both warplanes at once, essentially playing co-op with yourself.
