Item Description

The popular arcade shooting game Raiden III finally becomes available to play in the comfort of your own home, with new improvements such as the "Flash Shot System". To reach a higher score, you need to enhance your gaming strategy how to take down the enemies quickly. If you are fan of the series, do not miss out this title.

Raiden III is a horizontal scrolling shooting game. Enemies come towards you from all directions. As primary weapon, you will have a "Vulcan Shot" for wide scale attack, "Laser" for focused firepower and "Proton Laser" for free-style sweeping attack. In addition, gamers can also choose from "Nuclear Missile", "Homing Missile" and "Radar Missile" as secondary weapons to compliment the primary weapons for an effective long and short attack.

The title introduces the concept of "Offence is the best defense, kill the enemies before being attacked", together with scoring more points when one kills the enemies quickly with the "Flash Shot System". Once you can remember the positions where the enemies appear, and readily ambush them, you will be able to score up to twice the points.

In addition to preserving the arcade mode, the PlayStation2™ edition also incorporates various game modes and features to further the entertainment elements! These includes: "Score Attack", a training mode for various stages, "Boss Attack", a mode to continuously battle the Boss, "Data & Gallery", a mode to read about CG parts and original artwork, etc. New features also include the ability for two players to simultaneously engage in game play with one controller; replay current or pre-saved sequences of the game; vertical or horizontal display and more.

Excellent Game
If anyone rememebers the arcade versions of Raiden, Raiden II and the SNES Raiden Trad, then this should ring a bell. I\'m really impressed with the game\'s over all look. The lasers are beautiful and remind me of Gradius Vs beautiful but deadly lasers. The only thing that has me giving it 4 stars, is that it\'s a little too easy , and the bosses seem like i\'ve seen them in other Raiden games, like the first stage boss that is two tanks with rotating machine gun fire. Other than that this game is a really stellar shooter and lives up to the name. I just wish it wasnt so easy. I dont know if it\'s because i\'ve been playing so many CAVE shooters lately or what, but there dosent seem to be enough bullets on the screen. I like bullet soup! On my first play, i got to the 3 stage boss before i died once. That\'s just an idea how easy it seems. Other than that, great game! and you cant go wrong with a Raiden T-shirt!! hell yes $$
