IGN review of Super R-Type [virtual console]

Lucas M. Thomas writes for IGN:
"But all of this is also available elsewhere on the Virtual Console, in packages that cost the same 800 Wii Points as this download does and don't have the same annoying drawbacks – the original R-Type is available in its TurboGrafx-16 form, and the far better SNES installment R-Type III: The Third Lightning redeemed the series' potential on Nintendo's home console a few years after Super R-Type's relative failure. I'd recommend giving this particular download a pass and choosing one of those other two R-Types instead, unless you're just a diehard fan looking for a hard time."
