Raiden III Digital Edition is a revival of the classic Raiden series of scrolling shooter games. Raiden III has new concepts are introduced, which includes a "new 3D scrolling system" that involves the camera pointing down normal to the player while the scenery moves in three dimensions: climbing, descending, and sometimes moving vertically. The blue Laser concept is more like a beam, instead of the ones seen in prior instalments.

Key Features
  • Gameplay - Two player co-op mode is enhanced by an exclusive new attack skill: a beam that is usable whenever one player lines up in front of the other. In Double play mode, both players share the lives and bomb stocks, and without continues.
  • Various Modes - Score Attack, Boss Rush, Replay & Gallery, Option and 3 play modes (solo, dual and double).
  • 7 Unique Levels - The first three levels on Earth and the last four in space. Level design is based on previous Raiden games: the first three levels are particularly close to previous games, with the first based on the original Raiden; the bosses are also similar to those in the corresponding levels of Raiden II and Raiden DX.
  • Adjustable Display Modes - Window mode, full screen mode, adjustable zoom ratios (x0.5, x1.0, x1.5, x2.0).
  • Bonus Contents - 2 CD's worth of OST included with a total of 36 music!

Everything is perfect... except the resolution. It reminds me so much of my childhood! It is a favorite and I am fully delighted. On the other hand, I can conceive that for the uniniciés, €10 for that, must want... I spent a lot more on Arcade to finish it, and I think I made it profitable ^^

Arcade stick and Xbox 360 wired joypad don't work with this game! __ Very good game, but bad porting, the Xbox 360 controller and the arcade stick do not work with this game! It's the ultimate, sell an arcade game, that doesn't work with the arcade controllers and sticks, and a shoot em up, it's unplayable on the keyboard!

All quatsch with sauce-pivot function used by 24 duckot function-on full picture occupied-controller buttons-jewelry level put on arcade-and one of the most opulent shooter enjoyed!! The visual performance is the cracker-the soundtrack drives ahead-the SD resolution fitting. So: Buy!

Raiden, one of my first shmup played in the arcade being a kid, that shmup at the time had marked me. With his personal "paw", yes the ship and much slower maneued than in most other vertical shmup, I totally adhere to this "paw" that makes this license one of my favorite in the field. This Raiden III is in pure tradition of these elders, I hope now that one will be entitled very quickly to the following Opus (Raiden IV) on PC.

Good arcade shooter. You can play through the seven Levels or play individually in "Score Attack." You can Also play the Bosses in "Boss Rush" individually. So you can practice for High Scores and higher Difficulty Levels. Very Arcade-like, even the Screen is laid out vertically because the Screen was rotated in the Vending machine. If you can turn up your Screen, you have better, pivot function, otherwise a larger Part of the Screen will remain black. Easily under Win 10 with Gamepad. Unfortunately, no Steam Achievements.

It's Raiden, it's good. Raiden it's oldschool shmup! The ship is slow, the meatballs are fast. Raiden is the art of pixel placement and memorization of enemy patterns and waves. Raiden is a growing but never frustrating difficulty. It's oldschool for old bearded ^^ basically, Raiden III is a very good shmup. Maybe not the best of the series I admit... Part against the Portage is not perfect. The resolution is very low. Really a pity. Good it remains visible and perfectly playable. The image is just a little stretched when playing horizontally. With a little luck we will also be entitled to Raiden legacy, Raiden II and Raiden IV on steam. Who knows ^^
