My God, what a game! from the Raiden to the top, maybe even the best of the whole series! Positives:-beautiful graphics high definition than good! -Frenetic action (from real Raiden with ruthless bullets)-music that does well its job-the PLUS a style version "Danmaku" very nice for new players = very well seen! Negatives:-UH no it's at all good! Fan of shoot them up get this game it's a MUST have!

Although it receives very hard criticisms of the purists of the genus Raiden IV is an excellent game. It Is entertaining to play, the difficulty is just and the soundtrack is magnificent. I Recommend playing it for a while and then see replays of the best in the ranking to understand the depth of the game. To Novice players (as is my case) I recommend starting with Raiden IV before launching to more advanced games like Ikaruga or the classic Cave that are on the platform.

Really pity that the game Rowing as not allowed!, I do not know why... I have wide the required config but I'm has 10 FPS barely on... It looked cool. I first thought it was my PC so I opened another game much more greedy... but nothing, no problem. So it is with disappointment that I separate myself from this game that looked promising... I would like neither to put a blue thumb or red but steam obliges... It will be an inch down. PS: I would like to know if the game has run well in other?

Just got it in the Sale for me. At a Price of under €5., it's a MUST for anyone who wants to have Sweaty Hands on Gambling again. Apart from being given the Game, at all the coins I used to feed into the Vending machines. And as if there wasn't enough arcade feeling in the Game already, you can still rotate the Picture by 90 ° (or more). Since my Screen with a matching Mount allows this, I am absolutely thrilled:D My Recommendation---buy > as long as the Price is low and whoever missed it still gets a Game worth every Penny at Full Price.

Raiden this is my childhood, I remember passionately the first time I approached the beast in its first version in Arcade. A raced shmup with a rather unique paw, namely bullets that arrives "very tense" (quickly) or the slightest misplacement and punitive immediately this due to the relative slowness of the ship, this desired and superb paw. For this Raiden it is at least in difficulty "original" (arcade) otherwise we lose just this tense side that gives sweats and so we lose for my part the interest of the soft. After a lot of course and learning of the paterns we go to the upper level and it is madness on the pure tension of the bullets, a superb challenge this profile. The IV and my favorite Opus of this license at how mythical. This license and my favorite as well as Ikaruga from treasure. I'm expecting Raiden V firm foot on PC that and 2016 start output on Xbox one.
