That is a good assessment of Raiden.  I think overall while nothing is over the top, it is a solid game across the board in which all aspects compliment each other.

As Trev (the designer of the sound engine here on another thread) was saying, the nice thing about Raiden and other games his company was a part of (Zool, Bubsy, etc) is that they had the music going throughout the gameplay.  That is a nice touch since some games did not have the music during the gameplay.

I just wonder, if we were disassemble and reassemble the Raiden code, if we would find that the Jaguar could handle a full screen gameplay if the side display bar was removed?  That is what I wonder.  Cheesy

Oh I'm sure the Jag could handle it Wink Not sure if I could handle 33% more enemy fire though  Huh

Project 1 is proof that it actually can. Easily.

"People who attempted to play this game were plainly horrified at the planet graphics which they had to bounce around the screen, avoiding these odd looking fireballs and occasionally hitting small selections of blue 'alien ships'. Apparently there was a boss level etc. but no-one had the patience to last more than 30 seconds!"

Go easy on it or they might not release another "PD game coded in STOS by an absolute beginner."

Atari Jaguar Review: Atari Karts

Quote
Overall, Atari Karts is a solid title. While it lacks some of the sophistication and charm of other games of it’s type, it’s extremely playable and offers a good challenge. The graphics are sharp and smooth, and show off the Jaguar 2D power well. Those looking for a decent Jaguar game should definitely give it a try. Recommended, if you can manage to find it.

Atari Jaguar Review: Supercross 3D

Quote
Overall, Supercross is an extremely playable game. The bad frame rate, and the fact that going off track results in a crash is likely a turn-off for most gamers. But if you stick with it, the excellent controls and decent AI offer a decent challenge. Flawed for sure, but recommended for racing fans.

Hello? *crickets*

Ruiner Pinball

Quote
Overall, this is a solid Atari Jaguar game. The 2D graphics are sharp and colorful, the music is decent, and the game play is addicting. While not impressive by 1995 standards, as a retro-game, Ruiner Pinball holds up quite well. If you looking for a good game for your beloved Atari Jaguar, you could do much worse than Ruiner Pinball. A complete copy can be found for around $15. Well worth it.
