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.
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.
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.
