 We love Virtual Console but man fuck writing a full review of something we just paid six dollars for. Have a Quick Hit instead.

More shmups ahoy. R-Type Dimensions is pretty much a two-for one deal, featuring R-Type 1 and 2 with two player co-op, 3D visuals, and the ability to skip to any stage you've completed so that you can practice them without having to play through the earlier stages a billion times; a useful feature considering that these games are notorious for throwing relentless swarms of enemies at you and stripping you of all of your power-ups upon death (which is a real pain in the later stages).

As I mentioned before, the game has 3D visuals, but you also have the option to play with 2D sprites. The catch, though, is that you don't pick one of these two and then stick with it throughout the game - you swap between sprites and 3D models on the fly during the game by pressing the Y button. While it's not an especially practical feature, it is a pretty cool novelty.
