Is it Raiden as in “hay den” or is it Raiden as in “guy den”? I can’t honestly tell you the right way to pronounce it, but I can tell you this is an incredibly hard SHMUP (at least for me). The biggest drawback is the lack of auto fire (though there are ways around that), while the second biggest is how slow your fighter moves compared to the inordinate amount of on screen enemies. It makes it torture to avoid being hit let alone surviving boss fights.

It’s enough fun that you’ll want to endure it for a while, but (in my opinion) not so much that you’ll want to keep playing it repeatedly. This is a “take long breaks when done” kind of game.
