The year is 2219 and the Secilia Federation has initiated a plan to destroy Earth. So far, the evil federation has been highly successful in destroying much of the planet's defensive forces and resources. With world destruction at hand, the fate of mankind is looking for a savior.
Unbeknownst to the federation, the Star Federation, an Earth-based organization, has been developing two highly sophisticated aircraft known as the R-Gray prototypes. These destructive machines are packed with homing missiles, laser cannons and other crippling weapons. As the planet's hero, you'll control either R-Gray ship, taking to the skies in a desperate mission to stop the Secilia Federation from carrying out their plans.
Developed by Working Designs' action subsidiary Spaz, RayStorm is an overhead shooter featuring fast-paced gameplay and 3D graphics. Your mission won't be easy — throughout a series of levels spanning enemy carriers, wide-open landscapes and the far reaches of space, the Secilia Federation will do their best to crush your R-Gray shooter; you'll fight everything from drone ships and ground turrets to large, mechanized boss characters. While targeting the opposition and engaging in frantic air battles, you'll collect a series of power-ups and extra weapons.
In addition to the lock-on target system and PlayStation lighting effects, RayStorm features a two-player cooperative mode. Rather than flying solo, you and a friend can battle the Secilia Federation side-by-side in simultaneous fashion. Either way, the mission won't be a stroll in the park. Dust off those shooting skills, you're gonna need 'em! ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
