This was £40?!
Looks like a £10 Xbox Arcade title at best!

Not a shmup fan eh? There's a level of detail in the sprite work that you're probably overlooking, but these games are generally kept simple looking because gameplay is so finely tuned that any drop in framerates and such would be detrimental to the experience.

I've dropped £40 many times before on games like Ikaruga, DoDonPachi, Mushihimesama and Espgaluda and always had more than my monies worth. They're just so endlessly replayable. Certainly more so than your average Call Of Duty these days.

Oh I love shoot em ups!
It was a genuine statement, it was not so long ago that this game would have been £10 at launch on Xbox Live.
£40 is the going rate for huge AAA titles (on disc) so £40 for this is a bit of a joke!

After googling what shmup is, the game looks interesting.

I think you're underestimating the quality of this game, sure there are some shmups on XBLA for that price, but these are fully fledged titles which command a high RRP. The Raiden series has always launched at full price, usually with a disc launch (V was skipped in this region although did receive a physical launch in Japan).

I accept that most people will baulk at that kind of money for something that looks (in stills, at least) quite basic, but for fans of the genre it's pretty normal to pay £40 and up for a shmup. Thankfully I had passed on this title so I'm extremely grateful for the huge discount.

Looking at the details on the store it says
Multiplayer - online
Co op - none
Can anyone that owns this clarify?
#15
love a good shooter so might buy this if I can find some cheap credit. Have only played the past Raiden games a bit, quite liked them but found them hard as nails, guess I just need to practice more...
#16
Oooh! This was not even on my radar. Nice one. Thanks.
#17
Super great!
#18
No user reviews on metacritic and only 3/5 on xbox live. I'm genuinely interested in this so would be nice to hear feedback from anyone who has played this.
#19
just nabbed this. great buy for those of us of a certain age *ahem*

Great! I remember when this was released at 39.99, no chance buying it then but have to get it now.

Remember seeing this on my trip to Japan this year for around £60. was tempted to buy it then as it wasn't announced for the west. Good thing I didn't!
#24
Nice, i need a shooter on the XB1 and this will do nicely.
