A sequel to the R-Type and R-Type II arcade games, Super R-Type features the same type of detailed graphics and fun side-scrolling shooting action, but it's hampered by one significant setback: horrendous slowdown. Whenever there are too many onscreen enemies at once (this happens a lot), the game moves in slow motion. Released early in the life of the Super NES, Super R-Type, more than any other title, gave the system its initial reputation of having a slow processor. A thoroughly challenging game, Super R-Type is nevertheless highly accessible thanks to four levels of difficulty and unlimited continues. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
