Nishizawa and company could have updated a few old-school level designs and mechanics to improve the experience, but chose instead to preserve the identity of the original. The result is a remake that faithfully sticks to the established formula, warts and all.

Despite the passionate performance of its creator, Aluna isn't quite ready to compete with the better action-RPGs out there.

6.5 / 10.0 - R-Type Final 2
May 24, 2021

More R-Type is never a bad thing, even if it comes in a scrappy package like R-Type Final 2.

An audacious and ambitious game that ranks among the best of the series, even if it's a touch inharmonious.
