Shienryu/Gekioh on Playstation was cool (yay for budget titles), but suffered from extreme slowdown that really detracted from it. It was nice that all of the music was stored in an XA file for easy ripping though :)
The sequel really feels bland and still unfinished. IIRC it was going to be a Dreamcast/Naomi game. It's the only other game in the series, AFAIK

Never played that disc :( I'll have to look arund and see if I can find it. I'm really bummed at how shitty the PS2 remake is.

It's a remake of the NES version

Now you need to track down Raiden DX for playstation. It got rereleased last year as a budget title (like 1500yen or something). After playing RaidenDX, you just can't go back to Raiden I / II :(
