Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2, and Raiden Fighters Jet; the names are familiar to any gamer. Back in the day these legendary arcade cabinets came to symbolize extreme difficulty, never-ending secrets, and the resultant devastating loss of quarter-based wealth. All three games have now been recreated and enhanced with new features on Xbox 360 for the ultimate collection, Raiden Fighters Aces.

You can also rotate the gameplay, or rotate your entire display to play full screen. And finally, when the battle is won you can post high scores and gameclips to Xbox LIVE for all the world to see.

The Games

Raiden Fighters
Originally released in 1996, Raiden Fighters features seven levels that make up the game's three missions. Within these players will have access to eight different fighter craft.

Raiden Fighters 2
Originally released in 1997, the action in Raiden Fighters 2 is set four years after the events of the first game. Here players utilize seven standard fighters as well as several unlockable aircraft.

Raiden Fighters Jet
Originally released in 1998, Raiden Fighters Jet contains most of the aircraft from Raiden Fighters 2 and also features updates to the medals and scoring system.

Gameplay
The games within the Raiden Fighters franchise are vertical scrolling air combat shooters. That is, although an update to the original games of this compilation allow players to flip the playing area horizontally for a full screen effect, the standard vertical orientation of the action reflects the upright nature of the arcade machines that they were originally designed for. Combat within the games consists of multiple stages, which make up the games' missions. Within these missions players have use of a variety of aircraft which they use to attack targets both in the air and on the ground. Each aircraft depending on the game played, features a selection of weapon options including standard firepower along the line of missiles, lasers and bombs. Aircraft also possess different charged/special attacks, some of which are exclusive to multiplayer games. Players receive points for success in taking out mission identified targets as well as collecting bonus items known as "medals" that appear on the gameplay area.

Key Features:

  • All three Raiden Fighters games on one disc.
  • Training mode, with slow-motion, level selection, and ship configuration.
  • Leaderboards and gameclips for online and offline play.
  • Two-player cooperative offline play.
  • Standard vertical scrolling, full-screen side-scrolling, or full-screen vertical scrolling on a rotated display.
  • Visual filters to simulate classic display-types, or change the feel of the game.
  • An Xbox 360 exclusive containing 32 Xbox LIVE achievements and 1,000 gamer points

I've been a fan of the Raiden series ever since seeing them in-person at the height of the 2d arcade days. Unfortunately due to its rarity in my local arcades I never had the chance to play them very often. So this compilation of the three Fighters series games for $20 is probably one of the best deals ever for fans of Shoot 'em Ups. It's an absolute steal for the price.

Each game in the Fighters series would be very approachable for intermediate and above skill levels. It's a great introduction for those who want a more action packed Shoot 'em Up experience without dipping into bullet hell territory. With only a casual commitment they are still difficult games to play proficiently, but the enemy and bullet patterns are (mostly) fair and avoidable on the standard or below difficulty levels. Average players could enjoy any Fighters game without having to posses reflexes that are beyond those of mere mortals. If lightning reflexes and quick thinking aren't in short supply however, then there is a lot of depth to enjoy... Like any great Shoot 'em Up they can be very complex or shallow experiences depending on the individual and dedication put forth. Regardless, a little extra shot of caffeine before playing might help add a few more points to the high score.

There are only two potential drawbacks... One might be some visual overload because there are just tons of objects moving fast on-screen at any given time. Still to this very day all three Raiden Fighters are impressive for 2d sprite games. There's not much in the way of a slow difficulty ramp-up such as a game like Galaga. Pick your fighter, hit start and prepare to dive-in head first! Depending on personal preferences the second drawback could be the soundtrack.

I have never played Raiden Fighters Aces before and this is the first time I've played it on the Xbox 360. All I can say that the game itself is very addicting. There are a lot of options and I've only attempted the NORMAL MODE (whatever that means). There's also Boss Rush and Expert mode which I have yet to try out. And it's not just 1 game, it's 3 different games! They are quite similar but the bosses and settings are still different from each other. I can't believe this is only $20. I think it has a lot of replay value. It's fun once in a while to play some old-school games for its simple objective and easy button configurations. :) If only they had Xbox Live Co-op mode, it would be even better! But I'll take the already available offline co-op mode too. :D

All three of Raiden's spin-off series, Raiden Fighers, on one disc with almost as many options as you'd find on an emulator like MAME. Change the orientation of the screen, lives, continues, framerate, color filters, interlacing filter thingies, etc. for all three games.

The three games themselves all follow the same formula: Blow up crap, blow up enemies, and blow up boss. BIG SCORE!!! The variety of the ships will keep you playing constantly since it's almost like a fighting game in trying to find that ship that just works right for you. There's only two different styles of weapon power up but they act differently with each ship so it's never boring. Music is thumping industrial/techno. Sound effects are heavy and straight forward. Lots of things to learn about the three games that isn't necessarily present on the surface but you learn as you keep playing over and over again.

Only downside with this game, as I stated in the title is that co-op isn't online. Only local. I mean you get your standard leaderboards but no co-op is almost no go for some. Honestly though, despite that, for $[...], this is a no brainer for anyone who loves shmups.

The Raiden series has been around forever it seems, and has retained a tried but true formula of top-down shooting action. Raiden Fighters Aces features the Raiden Fighters trilogy on one disc, with some technical advancements made specifically for release on the XBox 360. Now while some may think that these games would be better suited for release on the XBox Live Arcade, I beg to differ. Each of the three games featured here are packed with old school, arcade, shoot 'em up action that remains addictive and fun, and the budget price tag attached to the package only sweetens the deal. Even though each game may be a little on the short side and only old school gamers need apply here, Raiden Fighters Aces is a blast regardless. It looks good, still plays great, and manages to hold up better than a majority of the current, overhyped, next-gen games that seem to draw everyone's attention.

Raiden Fighters Aces is possibly the sole beacon of hope in this day and age for fans of true arcade games. It's no secret that arcades are dead in America, and those of us who wish it wasn't so are often left hanging out to dry. Besides a few sparse XBLA ports or hollow indie cash-ins, the gaming industry has seen fit to let the genre proper wither and die, but RFA stands proud and shows that there is at least one publisher left that hasn't completely abandoned the genre.

A great bargain and lots of fun. Easy to get used to and the replay value is high. My son and I love playing this game. Straight forward in gameplay, shoot the baddies and avoid being shot down! As simple as it sounds, it is still very challenging when you have to keep an eye on the enemy fire as you try and shoot them down. A great game at a great price.
