Arcade Archives: Raiden Critic Reviews

Arcade Archives RAIDEN brings the challenging and time-honored shmup to the Nintendo Switch. With HAMSTER's extras, this is as good a time as any to revisit it or check it out for the first time. It's an oldie but a goodie. It comes highly recommended, especially in co-op.

The original Raiden is a solid shoot 'em up that's still a lot of fun but playing through it made me thankful that its sequels ironed out its more frustrating aspects. In fact, I hope to see Raiden II and Raiden Fighters release for Arcade Archives down the road.
