    With the increasing number of old-school arcade shooters making their way onto iOS, Raystorm stands out as a worthy sequel, with better presentation, slicker graphics and sound and even a friendlier price point than it's predecessor. If, unlike some games reviewers, the words 'Force' and 'Storm' don't put your job in jeopardy, it's well worth a pick up.

    Ultimately, the price is RayStorm's biggest issue. We can debate the game's overall quality, we think it's quite good, but at the end of the day, it's a tough shooter to recommend with such a high barrier to entry. A satisfying interstellar trek, but one that comes with sticker shock.

    RayStorm is like a big fireworks show: Lots of bang and explosions, but fizzles out pretty quickly until the next round.

    This is a fine way to play a fine old game but to be clear, RayStorm is undeniably an old game.
