    Sorry, but this game is terrible, the intent of Valcon Games to revive this genre is terrible, but with good intentions, is really addictive, but with much problems. Sorry Raiden Fighters Aces other titles are better.

    An amazing port of the three Raiden Fighters games: Raiden Fighters (1996), Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive (1997), and Raiden Fighters Jet (1998). 10/10 for all the details covered in menu options, including pixel-perfect scaling options, various frame rate options (as the original game ran at 54fps and a 60fps conversion is not as simple as you might think), and everything you can possibly imagine as a Raiden fan. The only flaw, which is not a flaw that can be fixed, is the leaderboards are specific to the game modes and are lacking in content (in the amount of players on them), and many game modes have no leaderboards at all, but you can choose if you want to "Xbox LIVE" or not from the main menu. Tip: Any mode where you continue doesn't record to leaderboards. This separation between wanting to continue and wanting to post scores on leaderboards is unfortunate but necessary in all arcade ports. This review is coming from someone who has scored 1st in the world on one of the leaderboards, in an obscure but very hard mode (Xonatron)! :) I cannot say enough about this game. Appreciate the depth that these developers have taken in bring this to us. Expand

  1. One for shoot-'em-up experts. [Dec 2010, p.98]

    Raiden Fighters Aces is a good deal for anybody that loves top-down shooters or has nostalgic memories for Raiden.
  3. If you're just curious, then renting might suffice, but given how niche a title Aces is, finding it for rent may be extremely difficult.
