R-Type Complete CD -- Irem

This, with out a doubt, has to be the best translation of R-Type for a home system that I have ever seen. The CD contains the full game, with a new music score to boot. Play control is exactly like the coin-op, and takes a bit to get used to for modern gamers that haven't spent a lot of time playing older style shooters. R-Type is a game that is notorious for it's seemingly "sluggish" handling, but once you pick up one or two ship speed ups, handling starts to get quite speedy. Graphics in this title are right on with the arcade, though since this is on a home system, they're not an exact replica. None the less, this game is a great addition to anyones PCE-CD library.
