Description of Raiden

Raiden is a good PC translation of a popular console shoot-em-up. Standard fare here-- shoot baddies, collect power-ups, and overcome end-level bosses.

The plot: Mother Earth has fallen to deranged aliens. Now, as pilot of the Raiden Supersonic Attack Fighter, you must rip through the enemy lines and mount a daring counterattack. Raiden successfully enhances the vertical-shooter excitement of an all-time arcade favorite with brilliant sounds and exceptional speed and motion. All the ingredients of a great shooter are here, but the extremely unforgiving gameplay will leave newbies wishing for an easier game.

Recommended to expert gamers only or those looking for a real challenge! Also be sure to check out the excellent but little-known sequel Raiden II, also on this site.

It really says something about how competent Imagitec Design is when 90% of the time when you start the game, it just crashes...
