r type had it's bad moments, but that was no worse than r type 3. holy fucking shit. it's pretty much one continuous level, where you go into this huge space structure body, kill bosses, progress further inside until you get to a point where you have to reverse. and by reverse i mean the whole map going backwards and you can only shoot forward. that's not the worst part though.. the worst part is after that, there the last section where you have to float around in a circle around 50px wide so you dont get crushed by various walls. this circle moves completely random around the level. to this day i dont think i have met a more frustrating level.
i mean, even the 94th mission of jetpack wasnt that bad, and it was bad (i didnt complete it). also, bosses/jump puzzles in devil may cry 3 are a pain in the ass. beowulf is fucking impossible D:
