R-Type Leo is not bad, but it doesn't feel much like R-Type at all.
I decided to give a 2nd chance to R-Type Delta. This game never got me interested, though I was a big fan of both R-Types on Amiga. I still couldn't see what was all the fuss about it. The game is rather frustating at parts, it has too much slowdown, and it requires an ABSURD amount of memorization sometimes.
