I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Great graphics and audio, does everything about shooters really well

The Bad: Only 8 levels, the levels are really short, not much in variety, no story

I'm not very good at older shooter and platformers, but I was pretty good at Raystorm. I got through 6 of the 8 levels without dying on my first try. Raystorm sports awesome graphics with tons of effects on screen with no slowdown. Most arcade ports to the PS1 were not very good, but Raystorm is an exception.

             You have three different weapons at your disposal. Your regular gun, lock on missiles, and a special attack that clears all enemies on screen. While this is pretty standard for all shooters Raystorm does it well too. Raystorm doesn't do anything spectacular, but it does everything you know very well. The biggest downfall are the short levels. You can beat them in about 5 or less minutes each and there's 8. You can blow through the whole game in less than an hour, but it's even more fun with a friend. You can pick this up on eBay fairly cheap so those shooter fans should take a look.
