Upon opening, the game wouldn't load past the opening screen, a low resolution picture: "RAZER2: HIDDEN SKIES".
After that, I couldn't alt tab out to close the game. I hooked up a second monitor, opened task manager, and I couldn't force the process to close. Taskkiller couldn't end this game. So far it is basically a cockroach. I had to restart my pc just so I could end the thing and uninstall the ♥♥♥♥ out of it.

Really wants to be Raiden 2 but sadly lacks in art direction and gameplay compared to almost any other shmup I've played on PC.

I tried, I really tried to finish it but even on easy difficulty its hard to survive for long. I don't know what I was expecting from this game, I guess I felt like finishing a game since this one is only 1-2 hours long but I couldn't get pass level 6.

The weapons, shields and slots are confusing af, and the 3 weapons you can chose to upgrade are worthless.

The game is overpriced, with 10$ you can buy a much more entertaining game than this. I guess you could buy it for 2 or 3 bucks if you like these kind of games and you're looking for a challenge, otherwise it isn't worth even the 2$.

The graphics and the pattern the enemies attack you make this game very unpleasent. It's not fun, and sometimes I feel it's not challenging either, as you can't possibly dodge every incoming bullet.

Do I recommend this for the full price? Totally no. Do I recommend this for 2$? Still no. The game is playable but it's not fun. Pick it up in a bundle or something if you really want to try your luck on this.

Somehow this game looks good but plays bad and that's bad as in bad, not good.The colisions in the game seem off and even though you have moving and enemies, they somehow feel static in the game. The game seems to be a little off here then a little off there. Problem is it's all adding up and the whole game feels off. Something in the game just isn't getting across to me the gamer and even the health of my ship in this over the top shooter seems abstract. Half the time I'm just trying to power my ship but on the same note half the time I feel like what's going on here? It feels like someone said this makes a great shooter then turned around and used the world's most generic cookie cutter. Don't let the pretty screen shots fool you because they are just that... pretty. Underneath it all it's pretty... pretty broken up. Difinitely would recommend this game as an example of how not to make a shooter, sweet graphics and all.

A good 90s style bullet hell vertical scrolling shoot 'em up.

There are certain limitations to this genre: I don't think it's possible to make a AAA bullet hell game. ( It doesn't have the content of a AAA game so don't pay AAA prices for it.) Indeed some of the best shooters have very primative graphics. But assuming you are aware of that, and you like the genre, you will enjoy this. To the basic formula it only adds 3D graphics and upgrade shop. It also has good orchestral music. Everything is quite generic but since this style of game has been done a thousand times before I guess that is inevitable. Only major thing missing is a 2 player mode.

Before I played this game, my life was sad. I was on the verge of committing suicide with string cheese. But then I discovered the love of my life, Razor2: Hidden Skies. When I launched the game up, my ears were filled with joy, I am now deaf due to how loud it was. But it my mind, all I can hear now is the theme song of Razor2: Hidden Skies on loop. I'm ok with that too, since this is the only game I will play, ever. The only other game I will play other than Razor2: Hidden Skies will be the sequel when it comes out very soon. God have mercy on you if you do not play Razor2: Hidden Skies. Razor2/10 would play forever.

As there is nowadays a big influx of shooters games on steam there is starting to be somewhat of a crowd at the bottom of the pile.

This game is down there in the pile. It may perhaps be more on top of that pile as there are worse shooters but that doesnt help much. Why so? As other reviews have accurately described this game suffers from hard to tell hit collision as enemies alter altitude and often approach you from behind. I'd also add that pacing is a problem. Evidence? Find a Let's play video about the first level -> notice the attack patterns and hit boxes? Long long chains of repeating patterns come at you. And then without much ado the boss crawls forth to battle you.

I must also point out it's by far biggest sin: Pricing. there are other shooter games that i won't be naming that score points as they are simply so incredibly cheap you can get them for some coins and they give you that 30-60min of mediocre fun. This one is overpriced and gets annoying quickly and thus it's price/quality is bonkers.

I like to see past problems of games and find redeeming qualities in them that would make them different and perhaps place them in a niche. Alas i can't find any redeeming qualities in this game considering the competition on steam AND pricing.

This is a Shoot 'm Up arcade style game.

Personally I have a big fan of these kind of games.
But this game I think obviously a lot less fun
Yes, there is possibility of upgrading body, arms, reactor core and many others.

Game does not give me the feel of an arcade game.
I can be much hit by bullets and not die.
Until I get to the final boss you suddenly sweeps away.
By the amount of bullets makes it confusing and dodge is almost impossible ..

Joypad support is there, but works really bad.
There is little depth in the game because you do mission to mission.
I've Played many games but I think this one of the more lesser games.

Music is pretty good but we do not buy the gamefor that.

Not a very bad game only very boring after small amount of time.
Fun for 80 cent not for 8,99 or 2,49 on sale sometimes.

Skip this and buy another game !!

It has your basic elements of a shmup, but fails to provide anything special. I don't necessarily hate the game, but it is a bit bland and kinda slapped together. Overall, not absolutly terrible....just clunky.

否定的な評価が多いゲームだったので、逆に気になって購入してみました。

見た目は結構面白そうなのですが・・・・
実際に遊んでみると、エフェクトやサウンド等、演出面に大きな問題点があるように思います。

まず、アイテム取得時の画面フラッシュは、どう考えても不要な演出としか思えません。
頻繁に出現するアイテムを取得する度に画面が激しく点滅し、しかも取得したアイテムによって色が異なるので、特に長時間遊んでいると目が痛くなってきます。
その一方で、敵にショットを当てたり、ダメージを与えた時のエフェクトがなく、
敵がダメージを受けた演出(他のゲームで見られるような、火を吹いたり、パーツが壊れたり、敵グラフィックが点滅したり等)といったものも皆無なため、
シューティングの醍醐味の一つである、「撃ち込みの爽快感」に欠けてしまっています。
特にボス戦では、ボスの体力ゲージなどもないので、あとどれくらい攻撃すれば倒せるのかがわからないどころか、
攻撃していてもボスにダメージが当たっているのかどうかすらわかりません。
さらに、BGMと効果音のバランスが非常に悪く、敵を撃破した時の爆発音がほとんど聞こえないことも、爽快感の無さに拍車をかけてしまっています。

次にゲームバランスについてですが、
まず3種のメインウェポンの切り替えシステムが完全に死んでいて、
ワイドショット以外のメインショットは全く使い物になりません。
このゲームは中型の敵の耐久力が異常に高く、メインウェポンのみではとても倒しきれないので、
雑魚はメインショット、硬い敵には弾数制限のあるスロット武器、と使い分けることになるのですが、
そのスロット武器4種類の内、2種類がホーミングミサイルです。
中型機を倒したくても狙い撃ちすることができず、画面に雑魚が多く残っているとミサイルが雑魚に全て吸われてしまうため、
雑魚が殲滅しにくいストレートショットやレーザーとは相性が悪く、この2つは全く使い物になりません。

難易度的には、この手のゲームには珍しく、体力制(自動回復あり)+残機制となっているため、パワーアップの方針さえ間違えなければ難易度はそこまで高くありません。
ただし、後半面に出てくる隕石だけは、衝突すると残体力に関係なく即死です。これだけはさすがにいかがなものかと・・・

全体的に背景・敵などのグラフィックやBGMは決して悪くないだけに、演出面・バランス面がもう少し良ければ・・・という、やや残念なゲームだと思います。

スクリーンショットを見るだけだと面白そうに見えるけど罠。

ステージが冗長で堅いだけの敵が適当に配置されていてテンポが悪い、シールド制度(最初から24発当たっても平気+回復アイテムそこそこ出る)と適当バラまき弾の緊張感の無さとか…

ブラジル製の2DSTGがどんなものか見てみたい人にだけお勧めです。

レイストーム、雷電、シルフィード、斑鳩等、和製STGからの影響が垣間見れるが
中身はかなり雑。
敵が無駄に硬く爽快感がない
ボスの攻撃も避けれるように作っているのか疑いたくなるような出来。

Background: Purchased as part of a Bundle Stars Bundle.

Impressions:
Wow.. it's a quick download and a quick deletion. I played up to the first boss and then quit out.

Basically it's a bullet-hell game like '1942' with futuristic 3D ships and a horribly restricted field of view.

It's something you've seen a million times before and does nothing to improve on the formula. The shooting just requires you hold down 2 fire buttons and let them auto fire as you try to dodge the incoming while nabbing the upgrades as they drop down.

The Good:
*Looks pretty decent.
*Controls work well.
*Sound is ok.

The Bad:
*Lack of impact and satisfying enemy destruction.
*Field of view is too close in a tight downward angle.
*Boring enemy attack patterns.
*Cheap enemy tactics, attack from behind, really suck.
*Weapon pickups have no discernible impact on your killing power.
*Just holding down the 2 fire buttons and moving is not fun.

Recommended for:
Fans looking for an updated '1942' type game.. but even then it's a hard sell.

Conclusion.
2/10. Really weak all round and lacking anything original to keep you interested.

Wow this is bad. Almost impressivly so. Sure, It was probably easy to make things like the art bland and the music painfully generic, but in other areas it seems like there was some real effort to make this properly terrible.

A camera angle which makes it difficult to place where your ship is relative to bullets, that's some effort right there. Ship movement which seems oddly disconnected from controller input, hit boxes that float some distance away from the actual target, sound effects that scrape against your will to live. This crap doesn't make itself y'know.

This game is mediocre at best. The menu selection is just awful, especially for the upgrades, it's not clear what each upgrade of your guns, rockets, power, shields can do, no idea what each gun is, everything is trial and error. Even so, it starts with such a fury and speed, the bosses are almost unbeatable, and it feels like all of the time someone's attacking you from behind or just trying collide with you. This game feels like nightmare even if you selected easy.

My advice: This genre is best portrayed in the old "Raptor: Call of the Shadows" game. This game should have been influenced more from that.

Quick review coming from a shmup lover.

The Good :
- the game does't look too bad. By today's standards, it doesn't look too good either, but I wouldn't mind if it played ok.
- Music sounds good, but...

The Bad :
- Controls are rigid. Don't even try to play with an XBOX360 controller...
- Patterns are repetitive.
- I have a big feeling problem with this game. Can't feel the power of the weapons. Can't feel when I'm hit. This is probably because the sound in the game is not very well balanced.
- ... the sounds FX are weak. Can't hear any explosion. Shot sounds are flat and weak.
- Music sounds totally inappropriate. It's good, but it feels like it's the music from another game...

Definitely not worse the full price.

I was expecting modern version of the classic shooter Raiden sadly this game does not deliver.
*Extremly dull and boring until you get to the boss
*very limited weapon. 3 weapons? 2 bombs? You can NOT power up during the missions.
*♥♥♥♥♥♥ weapons. still ♥♥♥♥ after upgraded

Only fun I had in this game is posting highscore using dirty word.

Don't remember how I got this game probably from a bundle
I hope no one paid $9.99 for this

This is the Bad Rats of shmups - that is to say it is a work of art. Wonderfully paced, and with stunning action and dazzling laser shot fighting, you can't go wrong with this game. Every bullet is exciting to dodge - will it hit you? With the hitboxes being mostly arbitrary, this will lead to endless excitement. The boss battles are pulse-poundingly exciting, and as the bosses have extreme amount of health, and no way to see how much health they have left, it makes a profound statement on the futility of war. I don't know what happened to Razor1, but Razor2 is a game that will change PC Gaming forever.

Razor2: Hidden Skies is a sci-fi "bullet hell" game made by the Brazilian studio responsible for Bad Rats - Invent 4 Entertainment. The numeral "2" appended to the name of the game begs the question as to the whereabouts of the original game. There was no Razor 1 listed on Invent 4's website which leads me to believe this is the only publicly available game in this series. Unable to find any mention of an original game, it leads me to speculate that the developers artificially appended the title with a "2" to make it seem like a more successful franchise than it actually is.

Razor2 seems to make strides in being as mediocre as possible. Much of each level seems to insult the value of your time by presenting you with repetitive and uninteresting fill content. Most attacks simply vanish into the enemies and offer little to no indication that you're actually doing damage which both makes you wonder if you're using the right weapon and leaves up unsatisfied in the shoot 'em up experience.

To the game's merit many of the enemies have a very appealing design albeit a bit generic. The game's soundtrack is very orchestral that made the game feel a bit like a movie. The boss fights offered a fair challenge but enduring the levels of mediocrity to get to them failed to make the endeavor worthwhile.

The game offers you three lives and a single continue. Once these are depleted you are forced to start the game from the beginning.

The game does support USB controllers but only in game as navigating the menu seemed to require the mouse at some point.

Score: 4.5/10

This is a lame shooter with mega-busting secondary weapons and a mega blockbuster of a soundtrack from beginning to end. I felt like Obi Wan flying the skies shooting down the empire. It was worth the $2 I paid for it, but I'd only recommend this game to experience the big sounding music.

Razor2 has some fantastic visuals and a great soundtrack with the gameplay one would expect from a standard SHMUP (shoot ‘em up) but doesn’t bring anything particularly new to the genre. Expect cool upgrades, boringly repetitive enemies, and a complete lack of a defined hitbox! For SHMUP enthusiasts. Get it cheap in a bundle or something, otherwise it’s not worth it and certainly not worth $10. I personally found it to be enjoyable.

THE GOOD
- Lots of pretty action, massive bosses, and bright bullets all over the place.
- Upgrade your ship between the eight stages with new weapons, shields, and equipment.
- Easy achievements. You can earn all ten simply by playing through the whole game.
- Epic orchestrated soundtrack! Can’t complain about the musical selection.
- Decent replay value.

THE BAD
- Poorly defined hit box. This is a huge flaw for a SHMUP in my opinion.
- Undefined “edges” of the playing area make it difficult to gauge where to dodge.
- Repetitive enemy patterns make the 5-minute stages seem boring and long.
- Numerous typos and language errors make any attempt at a story meaningless.
- It’s just not noteworthy in any way. It’s very “run of the mill” in terms of gameplay.

THE MEH
- Limited controller support. It works in most places, but not in all menus.
- No tutorial or practice mode and the controls are not exactly intuitive.

Overall, I found it to be fun to play through a full run or two but repetition will leave you bored and unimpressed. There is some solid strategy available in the form of ship customization but in the end it’s still the same repetitive stage battles, and if you use up your single continue and all your lives then you’ll have to start over from the beginning again. It has some redeeming qualities in that the soundtrack is pretty awesome and that the achievements are all pretty easy to get (aside from maybe the “no continue” one). The visuals are not overly remarkable but they are well done. The typos and spelling errors are painful to read through though.

I highly recommend using a controller. I use a Logitech F310 and have no issues with the gameplay itself, although menu navigation is wonky at best.

Razor 2: Hidden Skies tries gallantly to emulate the shmups of yore, but falls flat not for want of creativity (though it could certainly use a bit more), but inexcusable ♥♥♥♥-ups on the game mechanics themselves.

The game attempts, in some places, to be a bullet hell game but the hitbox of your ship is extremely large and does not even match the graphic - it awkwardly extends out an uncertain distance to both sides, but does not seem to include the nose of the fighter. Furthermore, the areas extend visually farther than your actual range of motion, but this is impossible to tell without running right into an invisible wall. In several areas, enemies park right on this wall, giving the illusion that you can zip around them to avoid fire and take them out, right up until you crash into them headlong making the attempt. This is made even more unweildly by the boss fights that zoom the camera out, supposedly to impress you with how big the boss is. Sadly the net result is that now you can see even more but have the same narrow movement lane, exacerbating the problem even more.

Two subweapons are heat-seeking with auto targetting, but there is no mechanic to choose what you'd like to target - the game seems to completely arbitrarily choose for you, and even if the lock-on happens to be a priority target, anything flying in the path of your slow-traveling relativistic missiles will intercept them and explode instead. (Which prompts the question of how does a missile travelling at relativistic speeds even work, and if it does why are they so bloody slow?) The bosses are all recycled variants of each other - fight three tanks, then fight three spinning satellite things, then... etc.

Unfortunately the problems do not stop there. Movement is imprecise and jerky. Combine this with the awkard hitboxes and you've committed a cardinal sin in the shmup genre - dodging is effectively impossible in places, though this doesn't matter a terrible lot since to cover for this the game slathers you in multiple shields which partially refresh upon each pick-up. Despite that fact, you still take a lot of hits simply because your hitbox isn't where you think it is, and it's nigh impossible to guage where its limits are precisely, since it extends well beyond the ship graphic. Unfortunately, the pickups themselves don't make a terrible lot of sense. One of the most common is Energy, which restores a pip on your Energy meter. Which is grand, only the game never quite explains what Energy is for or why you want it, despite being able to upgrade your ship batteries to have more of it. Oh well, free shields I guess!

In general the game is horridly unpolished. The translation is riddled with grammatical errors, word misuse, and typos (I'm not sure what a Gravity Riffle is). Each mission has a cheesy low-quality text-to-speech mission introduction voiceover, only it gets a few words into it before the explosions start and the rest is completely drowned out. Oops. Hope it wasn't important. Soon after starting the second mission, the primary fire input became stuck and I was essentially on autofire for the rest of the game. Which isn't all bad I suppose, except with the input stuck, I became unable to read mission briefings (not a tremendous loss since they're an exercise in bad English and misspelled words) and upon finishing and going to the main menu it would spam me right into a new game on Easy Mode, not allowing me to change settings or even exit the game. I had to alt-tab and manually kill it.

In short, I can't recommend this game at all, even to die-hard shmup fans, unless you seriously need a fix and simply cannot find something else to scratch the itch.

Made by the developers of Bad Rats, need I say more?

This game is bad. Really bad. The gameplay is repetitive and boring, even before the end of the first level I wanted to stop playing. The voice acting is the worst I've heard, the music is a short 30 second loop, the fire sound is awful and since this is a space shooter you'll hear it A LOT. Visually the foreground and background objects feel like they are drawn for two entirely different games (they don't mesh well) and are hard to look at.

I'm sad that I even installed this game, in the end I found no enjoyment. If this review saves you from experiencing this terrible title then I have succeeded.
