  • Summary: An ambitious and unethical scientist, a secret experiment gone horribly awry, and an artificially intelligent supercomputer gone mad; all the necessary ingredients for the imminent extinction of mankind. You are humanity's last hope, a hotshot pilot given the unenviable task of flying an experimental fighter into the dark heart of the Con-Human Network. Seize the controls of three Wave Rider spacecraft, each equippped with the WR-01 primary weapon array, WR-02 secondary lock-on laser system, and WR-03 single-use weapon for emergency situations. RayCrisis: Series Termination is the final entry in Taito's acclaimed trilogy of shooters, and it bombards your CRT with an abundance of fourth-generation optical stimulation: multilevel scrolling, transparency and lighting effects, and enough polygons to overload your cerebral cortex. Dodge, weave, and blast through two play modes, disintegrating wave after wave of relentless bogeys, to achieve high scores and unlock hidden bonuses. Prepare your senses, reinforce your nerves, and limber your trigger finger - the final assault has begun! Collapse

    RayCrisis brings back the furious lock-on system you may remember from "RayStorm," and while some may find it a little bit limited, shooter fans should have a great time with the potential it offers for honing your technique and racking up high scores.
  2. Not only do you get a nice and colorful manual with your copy of "RayCrisis", but a decent shooter to add to the small quality library of shooters available on that system.
  3. Hardcore arcade shooter fans will love RayCrisis:ST, but everyone else should just consider it for a rent when they need to veg out and watch the pretty colors go by.
  4. One of the most intriguing blast-a-thons in recent memory.
  5. The main problem I have with this game is its lack of depth. When you go to play it, it's the same every time. Additionally, the sound needs some work. Fortunately, the graphics are impressive, and the fast-paced gameplay keeps your heart pumping.
  6. Dogged by its short length, unlimited continues and past-due graphics, this shooter barely scrapes by the mediocre mark.
  7. It's high on presentation and style, but the short time it takes to beat it doesn't warrant a purchase.

    Does not follow raystorm well tuned game play. Just a disappointing game. Should be avoided.
