While the core gameplay is at least somewhat solid, Blue Rider doesn’t have a lot of content or any particularly nifty features to help it stand out amongst its competitors.  Unless you love Twin stick shooters and are really, really itching for a challenge, give this one a pass.

Blue Rider not only doesn’t fit on the consoles, it also is of very poor overall quality and fails on almost every step of the way.

Even with unfortunate performance hiccups, it’s safe to say Ravegan have created one of the more interesting and cleverly addictive shoot ’em ups in recent years.
