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.

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.

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.
