Player's Review

"Mother Earth has fallen to deranged aliens. Now, as pilot of the Raiden Supersonic Attack Fighter, you must rip through enemy lines and mount a daring counterattack... in Raiden, the ultimate arcade game conversion. Showcasing the Atari Jaguar's 64-bit capabilities, Raiden enhances the vertical-shooter excitement of an all-time arcade favourite with brilliant sounds and exceptional speed and motion."

The only game I've played on an actual Jaguar console back when the high street store Rumbelows had demo units you could play on. It was safe to say there was no cue to worry about.

The game plays pretty much the same as other conversions of the game with some differences to the original arcade game. The biggest issue with the game is that so much of the gameplay area is taken up with the scoreboard. The music is the game is well done and dare I say, Amiga mod like.

In the longplay I have played through 2 loops even though the game ends after 8 stages, gives you a big fat bonus and starts over. I guess the difficulty has gone up a bit but it's hard to tell when super powered up. At the start of the third loop, I drop remaining bombs and lives to end the game. From other versions I have longplayed, the game will loop forever more.
