The legendary arcade shooter has returned once more! Raiden IV is another entry in the long-running series of vertical shooters. The game includes a direct conversion of the original arcade game, as well as an "Xbox 360 Mode" which has reworked enemy patterns and two completely new stages. Also included are a boss rush mode, a score attack mode, replay saving, and a ship model gallery.

The game looks and plays much like the previous title, and features the same upgradeable weaponry the series is known for: standard vulcan fire, high-powered laser fire, and the famous purple plasma beam "toothpaste laser". There are also three different sub-weapons to pick up. The game offers eight difficulty settings, and can be played solo, two-player cooperative, or in "dual mode" where one player controls two ships simultaneously. Extra player ships can be purchased from Xbox Live Marketplace.

The first printing of the game in both Japan and the US included a soundtrack disc featuring the Raiden IV original soundtrack as well as special arrangements from the entire Raiden series.
