    If you have any fondness for the series, or if you're just looking for a solid side-scrolling shooter that's about as hard as can be, R-Type Dimensions faithfully re-creates the original experience and before long you'll be wondering why you did this to yourself.

    Its cool that R-Type and R-Type II includes both the original versions and an enhanced graphics/music version- all of which can be switched on the fly with one button press. I was hoping that some more extras would be included given its 5 year release after the Xbox 360 version. However, pricing it cheaper at $10 makes up for it. In addtion- the PS3's excellent d-pad makes this game feel right at home. Full Review »
