"Raiden" is a japanese word which means "Fighting Thunder." This is a remake of the Raiden IIS series. Cheats @ www.raidar.co.nr.

repulsive.... wont wast more of my time writing a review

loved playing this in the video arcade

Most likely the greatest arcade port on the web

It's been over 6 years and I still can't get enough of Raiden X. The music, gameplay, all a blast of nostalgia and it goes to show you how great a game could be. However, as the years ween on, the game is starting to show it's age and it's begging for another remake to be made in all of it's former glory.
I felt that the gameplay was too easy throughout the entire game as you could easily power up your weapons to max and mow down all the enemies thrown at you. There is also a lag problem prevalent every once a while when the screen gets a but cluttered that leads to cheap deaths.
The music is one of the greatest examples of a quality game soundtrack I have ever heard. Catchy memorable tunes will plague for the rest of the week. Among my personal favorites is Stage 7's "Dread Battleship"'s main theme. I'm shocked that this amazing piece of work hasn't been recreated or remixed and submitted yet to this site. A complete shame that the soundtrack isn't up for download anywhere in a higher quality. I would buy it off itunes if it was up.
This game was a smash hit back in 2005, but it's lost some it's recognition since then. I WANT A REAL SEQUEL, NOW.

Holy crap this game is bad ass!

Wow... you really nailed it... I think I never played this game, because I wasn't that big of a Raiden fan... but this is better than the arcade because I don't have to spend all those freakin' quarters that I used to... :) nice job.
