It's somewhat weird to see this game only finally getting a PC release now. It was originally released for the DS and PSP a decade ago (coincidentally enough for the 30th anniversary of Space Invaders), and then for the Xbox 360 a year after that. So this is very late in the game, all things considered.

Not to knock the game though. The PSP version in particular was fantastic. It's a good pick up n' go game.

I love schmups, I wish they got more love in the american markets. the Japanese CAVE shooters are a rare sight in arcades, and even less frequently on xboxes. Even the playstation catalogue has really died down, PS2 had a lot of them, PS3 dried up a lot...


I have a very "ready player one" relationship with Raiden, as there was a convenience store next to my high school that has it, where for 25 cents I could get a solid 10-15 minutes of entertainment.

(Regarding SW:Battlefront II) Frostshite is a horrible piece of shit engine that makes games look artificial as if you were playing on a movie set instead of the actual location. -CJ_Parker

I'd like to see a 3D first person mode where you not only go east/west but also north/south with aliens floating downward.
