Raiden V: Director's Cut reviews and comments

Translated by

I like a good game, has a system quite different from previous deliveries. Good images and the music is appropriate for the different environments that manages the game. I really liked the voice system and show who speaks to you. Pity that they had not put movement in terms of faces, I would see better and only use images without movement. If you like this type of games you will enjoy it.

For its 25th anniversary, RAIDEN returns in great shape for the greatest pleasure of the shmup fan that I am. Obviously, we can weigh on the coldest of the graphic renderings in 3D or on a readability sometimes perfectible, but do not be mistaken this Raiden is worth the detour really... no doubt. The work performed on the presentation, the staging or the music and the sound effects force the respect. The PC port of the original Xbox version is of quality unlike the previous fan episode. A big Yes that justifies its price.

Raiden V is basically a worthy Part of the Raiden shup series, which has been able to inspire with traditional shooter gameplay since the first Playstation. This Part also offers little New, and more of the old one, but I am already so well used to That With Raiden and had not expected anything else. Unfortunately, this Part is at 30,-not only unusually expensive, and backed by a completely incongruous comic history, it also has some technical Problems:-no Xbox360 Controller support: Although the Buttons are displayed in the Game, the Controller will not Recognized. And I don't seem to be the only one with the Problem. In principle, this Does not bother me much, as I prefer to play Shmups with Keyboard anyway. Combined with my next Point, however, this becomes a real Shortcoming. -The Buttons are not free to incontrogovern. So I have to fire on a German Keyboard with Z because Z and Y are swapped. This leads to absolutely unnecessary Hand Cramps. -No V-Sync can be adjusted, although this would be urgently needed. In addition, the Screen partially flickers quite, not in the Game itself, but in the Movies and Menus. No Idea if only I have the Problem. I will return the Game and recommend it until the Problems are hopefully fixed Raiden IV, Which is also much cheaper to get. Maybe I'll give the Game another Chance if it's significantly cheaper. I hope that until then the Problems will be fixed, because then Raiden V would be quite a good Game. Unfortunately, one reads in many Reviews that it probably doesn't seem to be that old with the Manufacturer Support. All that Is to be hoped for is.
