What Gamespot Users have to say about R-Type Final

  • User Rating:8.4

    Excellent way to close out a franchise, if in fact, it must end.

    Excellent way to end a series ...if it must end. Even though I'm a hardcore SCHUMP fan I must say I am impressed. Will it go down as one of the best ever....only time will till for this game but with the 101 ships and ... Read Full Review

    I've been a fan of the R-Type series since the original came out in the arcades back in 1987. Now that Final is out, and I've had the chance to own and play it, I must say that I'm impressed. The game is definitely true ... Read Full Review

    One of the best R-Type games I have ever played.

    I'm not a fan of side-scrolling shooters, though I have to say that R-Type would be an exception to the rule. I have played R-Type DX version on the GameBoy Color and thought it was very good, even though it was very har... Read Full Review

    Good, but not great.

    I just want to say straight off the bat that I did enjoy this game. However, I felt cheated when i got to the final level, it finished too early which is a bit poopy really. This game seems to have suffered something whi... Read Full Review

    I've always been a big fan of R-Type, and when R-Type: Final would have to be the best of the series to date. The game is, of course, very short, as these side scrollers always are. However, it has quite a bit of replay ... Read Full Review

    The shooter you'll come back to time and time again.

    This is THE standout shooter for the Playstation 2. It's a fantastic value (can be found for $20 easily), and it offers replay value not usually reserved for shooters. That's because there are 100 ships that can be... Read Full Review

    A great end to a great series.

    The R-Type series has been around for quite a number of years now, and sadly, it's coming to an end. Irem have released what will be the last ever R-Type game, aptly titled R-Type Final. So does it let the series go out ... Read Full Review

    Best Scrolling Shooter Game to Date!

    This has been the R-Type game that I've been dreaming about. One that takes an old-school shooter and combine that with beautiful graphics and a zillion different types of power-ups and for a mere $30 bucks when it firs... Read Full Review

    R-Type Final, a worthy final chapter to an extraordinary series. This game is really freaking good.

    Gameplay- I must first comment on the difficulty level of this game. If you have not played alot of space shooter games, then you may be overwhelmed by the difficulty of R-Type Final. Even on the easier difficulties... Read Full Review

    Very Cool Game but it can become Very Repetitive.

    It's sad to say that a genre that has been falling for the past 5 years and helped arcades bring so much entertainment finally end. R-Type Final is a great game, and there's so much to do inside of it. The gameplay staye... Read Full Review
