About this game

Developer: FTE Games
Content Rating: Everyone10+


Originally released in 1986, players begin the game as a bandit in a black hat. The goal is to rob the fastest train in the West, the Gold City Express. Starting in the thick of the action, players must brawl with a banker before hopping onto the speeding locomotive. Once atop the moving train cars, players must fight their way past enemies to steal the loot. Dodging bullets, avoiding bottles and ducking under signs are just some of the obstacles encountered. Stages vary between fighting on top of the moving train cars and shooting at enemies while riding horseback. With the Real Arcade Feel, Express Raider is a test of stamina and strength, as well as gunslinger skills.

Express Raider remains a fun 2-in-1 game, with the fighting stages standing head and shoulders above the shooting ones, which is something of an oddity considering the Wild West setting. As such we recommend it to anyone who was a fan of the original or who played the home conversions and want to have the original on their virtual arcade Switch museum.

It failed to stir up anything close to enthusiasm while I played it, so naturally, it’s tough for me to generate much excitement with this review. Flying Tiger Entertainment thankfully has much better Data East games in their Johnny Turbo line like Joe and Mac, Sly Spy, and Super Burger Time, which makes Express Raider that much easier to ignore.
