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.
Raiden V: Director’s Cut offers a wide variety of weapons and difficulties that are sure to keep players busy for some time. I could have used a few additional modes, ships, and weapons, but what’s provided was enough for me to have a blast. Hopefully, the success of Raiden V: Director’s Cut opens the floodgates for the bullet hell genre on consoles in the west.
