It was the first game to scare me yet I kept going back to it, getting just a little better and going just a little farther into the mysteriously creepy Bydo Empire with each attempt.
Now, R-Type and R-Type II are part of the same download in the excellent R-Type Dimensions for Xbox LIVE Arcade. The game will set you back 1200 points, but if you're a fan of shoot-'em-ups, this should be a part of your games library."
