Set in a parallel universe, the Earth and humanity have prospered enough to expand space colonies all the way into the arm of Orion in RayStorm. To maintain security, Earth imposes martial law, but a federation of colonies led by the colony of Secilia overthrows the Earth’s government and plans to obliterate the planet and all the people on it. To counter this, Earth sends out a covertly-developed fighter codenamed the R-Gray in hopes of penetrating the Secilian atmosphere and obliterating Secilia’s base of operations, the Juda Central System.

  • Breath-taking graphics and vistas in 3D polygons, supported by a striking art style
  • The very best music shooting games have to offer, composed by Taito’s legendary sound team ZUNTATA
  • Outstanding gameplay focusing on the lock-on laser and challenging bosses

RayCrisis is set in a cyberspace environment and marked a style departure from the rest of the series. It details the events during which the supercomputer called Con-Human gained sentience and rebelled against its human creators. While the Earth is demolished to be remade as Con-Human’s new corporeal form, a mecha-neurologist launches a desperate assault to jack into the supercomputer’s virtual core and cease its insanity. It is up to you to pilot the Waverider viruses and keep the malicious AI from causing any more chaos - even if it could be too late, you must ensure that no more lives are lost in the real world by stopping Con-Human in the digital realm.

  • Features more varied stages that will allow you to jump through cityscapes, stormy skies, desert fields, giant water tunnels and more.
  • Includes an Encroachment System
  • Differently from the classic level-after-level shmup, the stages are set up so that three out of five are randomly chosen at start, although in the next playthrough the player can manually select the previously cleared map sequence. But don’t worry, regardless of what stage you pick, the difficulty always increases; each stage is tailored to include more enemies depending on whether it goes first, second, or third.
