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.
*♥♥♥♥ty 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 game is like retro-arcade game. It's simply fun.

The only bad thing about this game is there are no save that means when you close this game, all of your progress will gone so I don't surprise why some achievement like shoot down 4,000 enemies is rare to achieve.

While not a terrible game, I wouldn't recommend it because frankly the current price of $10 is much too high and also as it is a classic arcade-style shooter, if that is what you feel like playing then I might suggest you go and play one of those instead that you could get for much less and that would not have some of the same issues.

What I liked:
-Classic arcade-style shooting
-Ability to upgrade ship in between battles
-Decent number of affordable upgrades for ship
-Shields can make your ship tolerate more punishment than some other similar shooters

What I did not like:
-No tutorial or explanation of item pickups
-No saving even between missions (play all at once or lose your score)
-Default controls unintuitive; controls could be remapped but some are hardcoded and these are not identified anywhere
-For example, Space = swap secondary weapon. You can map Space to something else, but it will then do both (annoying)
-Sounds were not well balanced, so voices were always too quiet in contrast with background music even after adjustments
-Level backgrounds did not feel very dynamic, more like a scrolling wallpaper than your ship actually flying through a zone.

Hilariously bad. Out of its many faults, the bad controls are the dealbreaker. That and the fact that you can only use 80% of the screen for some reason. If you try to go to the leftmost or rightmost 10% of the screen you just hit an invisible wall. Hope you weren't trying to dodge something! Oh wait. Of course you weren't. Beacuse this is a bad game and you shouldn't play bad games.

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.

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.
