Raiden 5 is a peculiar, scrappy yet refreshing diversion from the genre norm of bullet hell.

The core gameplay is as excitingly well-crafted as usual but some strange design decisions, and odd omissions, make this an underwhelming sequel.

In many ways Raiden has been left in the dust by its successors. The series that have survived have moved on and tried new things in an attempt to remain relevant, whereas MOSS is content on clinging to old-school sensibilities. While I don't think Raiden V will be a massive breakout hit, it's welcome in my living room any time.
