Another eBay Purchase: R-Type Final for the PlayStation 2

Hi everyone,

I’m a happy camper today! Why? Well, R-Type Final for the PlayStation 2 arrived in the mail today. Can’t wait to start playing it, so I guess this will be one of my shorter posts. πŸ˜‰

I also won an auction for Gradius V (PlayStation 2 game), which is another great shoot’em up. Eagerly waiting for it to arrive.

Anyway, here’s a few pics of my new game:

Nice manual as well. Lot's of info to read, but I won't bother with that, as I want to start playing right away.. hehe.. (photo by Old School Game Blog)

Thanks for reading and see you soon!

  1. One of the finest schmups ever!
    This is a very polished version, quite different from the 2D flat original arcade version – as you would expect, but still a fantastic game.
    Congrats and enjoy πŸ™‚

  2. Heck yeah I played this! Super fun if you like the genre. I seem to recall that I unlocked quite a few ships. I wonder if I still have my save hanging around? Gradius V is great too.

  3. Some great choices mate! R-Type Final is brutal, but a lot of fun. All of the variants of the ships and options are fantastic too, if a little overwhelming!

    Gradius V is another great purchase too – Treasure did an amazing job giving the series a fresh coat of paint.
