Players will also get access to a pretty sweet gallery while playing through the game. It features 50 different pages of concept art, and it’s not exactly hard to unlock it all (I got the complete set, and I didn’t manage to find all of the endings). I always love to look at the different iterations that ship and boss designs go through, so this was a real treat for me.
All in all, it’s a decent ride of a game and done really well, but I find that because of the high price point, only the shump veterans should look into getting it. Casual fans will find themselves done with the game way before they get their money’s worth out of it. If you can find this at a discount, I would say grab it for the game play alone, but for $35, I’d hold off for now.
Raiden V feels just as home on PS4 as it did on Xbox, if not even more so. But regardless of where you decide to pick the game up – the aforementioned platforms or PC – you’re sure to get an engaging shmup, with some interesting social gaming quirks. Although I’m relatively fresh to the genre, it’s easy to see that Raiden V checks all the right boxes for what makes a shmup great.
