This has two games: R-Type and R-type II redone with new graphics for 800. A great game IMHO.

Edit: Forgot to mention that this deal is good only for Gold members. Here's a link (thanks Sway).

I love shmups but I don't find this game is worth its price tag unfortunately.

This is the price the game should have been at Release...
So, being a CAG, I must still think if it's now worth my points.

With such great XBLA games getting released over the next couple of weeks this needed to be half price rather 5 off.

I haven't been tracking all releases but it looks like 5 off is the max discount DOTWs have been getting.

You must be logged into your Gold account to see it for 800, if you're not logged in or only have Silver, it'll show up as 1200. crzyjoeguy, you can buy points in increments of 400 at the Zune Marketplace:

Great game. Should have been this price at release. The ability to switch from the old mode to the new on the fly is interesting.

In for one (just one?) once I get home. Always though the game was worth 800 and never the 1200 it originally released for. Now I can try it.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

You gotta be kidding me, release the game overpriced and when it sells like crap put it on sale for a week for the price it should have been. This is probably the biggest POS on the marketplace at $15

This game is awesome and worth 1200 points. At 800 points it's a steal.

This seems like one of those games that was inflated to begin with. At $10, it's a no. I was never very impressed with the series to begin with though.

I wasn't crazy about the 2.5D mode, but you can toggle back and forth between it and the original 2D. I'll pick it up, but I only pay in Moon Dollars.

Why are you n00bz0rz complaining that it's 10? It's a badass remake of one of the most badass shooter series. For only 10 it's a deal. SUPPORT THE SHOOTERS

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Basically if you like shmups, this game is worth it. If you play for score or to beat the game without continuing, you'll find a ton of gameplay here. Otherwise, if you just set to the continues to unlimited, you'll find a rather unrewarding experience and a short game (and you'd be sort of missing the whole point of playing shmups if the first place).

bahh, it's tempting, but I also just remembered that I have "R-Types" for PS1 which is basically the same thing minus the new graphics. Hmm, I dunno! I should probably save my nostalgia purchases for the full-on remakes (Space Invaders Extreme, Bionic Commando Rearmed) rather than enhanced versions of games I already have. I guess I'll be presented with a moral dilemma when TMNT comes out.

Yeah we do. We support the ones that aren't just sorry graphical upgrades and actually do something more.

Yeah I got R-Types on my PSP thru PSN. That, and I've already played R-Type 1 and 2 to death on my GBC. Not to mention I own Delta and Final too. Shit, and Tactics.

Honestly, they should have done something *gasp* different like rerelease R-Type 1,2,3 and Leo in one package or upgrade 3 and Leo. People have played the first two games to death. Leave them alone and move on.

I'll never buy this.

Buy everything! QUICK!
