It lacks anything to make it stand out from the rest of the proposals, but it will not disappoint fans of the genre, thanks to its careful arcade gameplay.

The game can be borderline unforgiving, but with the right loadouts and a few friends, the game can be a blast.

Unless you're prepared to to get to grips with RiftStar Raiders' unintuitive controls, you're probably best off steering clear.

If RiftStar Raiders had a local multiplayer component, more accessible online matchmaking, and well-scaled difficulty then it would be a fantastic twin-stick space shooter.

RiftStar Raiders has a lot of neat ideas on how to expand on the scrolling shooter with its penchant for upgradeable ships and densely packed levels. The difficulty gets in the way of that fun, however, and it’s not just because it’s a space shooter. Challenge should be handed out at a fairly steady clip, but RiftStar Raiders is punishing from the very first level. If replay value is your thing, then you’ll be kept busy for a good while replaying these nine levels for new high scores and farming currency to power up your ship. It’s clearly built for co-op, which would explain away the overwhelming odds you face in solo play. You’ll be kept plenty busy with the progression loop, but you’ll want to check yourself before you wreck yourself should the game’s high octane challenge be worth your time.
