Raiden V has made its way to PC and PlayStation 4, but now known as the Director’s Cut with a whole host of new features making it a more robust offering. The sh’mup hasn’t seen too much innovation, and while it isn’t executed perfectly, Raiden V: Director’s Cut does a lot of things other games in the genre don’t, making it very unique to see in action. Raiden V: Director’s Cut continues the 25th anniversary celebration of the Raiden franchise and its presence on other platforms make for it a for sure purchase for fans of the series, genre, and newcomers alike.
The Raiden series celebrates 25 years, and Moss Co Ltd has returned with the next entry: Raiden V, which is exclusive to the Xbox One. This sh’mup series has evolved and iterated on the past to provide a true sequel that not only looks good, but plays well and does some really cool things with the extra screen space to provide valuable information to the player. This is also the best playing Raiden to-date, making Raiden V is also the best introduction to the series you could have.
