Well ok it's not new, it's old; which happens to be my favorite kind of new. I didn't even realize this was coming out, I must be slipping in my old age. They took R-Type and R-Type II and 3D-ized them and made them 2 player Xbox Live co-op, AND kept the original music. No crappy remixes here *ahem* ...street figher hd remix... *ahem* Sorry, just wasn't a fan, classic music for me! Just good old R-Type. Plus swich to classic 2D sprites seamlessly in the middle of gameplay. Just a fantastic upgrade! 2 games for 1200 Microsoft points. I guess that's fair. I'm a huge shooter fan, from back in the day when shooters were set in space, not in some drab 3D environment where the only part of me on the screen is a hand and a gun. Oops, I'm being grizzled again. R-Type was one of the two games I had to choose from when I decided to buy an arcade cabinet back in '92. Ultimatey I went with Super Contra because it was in better shape, and we all know what happened to that.
Anybody up for some R-Type co-op? Duckhead turn on your Xbox!
