A conversion of the classic arcade shoot 'em up, Raiden follows the conventions of the genre with coloured power up pods that give different weapons when collected.

Comment
Raiden is one of the all-time greats in the annals of shoot 'em up history. It’s not just the excellent graphics and sounds, but the engaging gameplay that keeps you addicted for ages. It’s also capable of throwing up some hair-raising moments, and bullet dodging skills are pushed to the extreme. Thankfully, despite its toughness, it doesn’t get too frustrating. If you have a CD unit, be sure to check out Super Raiden instead for a more complete experience.
