You can move anywhere on the screen and the game has gorgeous visuals. The game packs a variety of action sometimes switching between 2D and 3D to angling the camera without a stop in the action. The boss battles are intense, wicked and immensely satisfying once you win. Overall the game is brutally challenging (difficult on the normal level and an absolute nightmare on the hard level). The game might feel short for some people (after 6 and a half hrs I'm about to finish on normal), but the action is so intense and there are so many challenges (from unlockables to beating a previous score) that the replay value is pretty high.
The visuals are gorgeous, the sound adds to the action. Controls are very sharp and it has high replay value.
GAMEPLAY: S&P2 sticks to the classic design of some of the oldest shooters out there. There are no power-ups, alternate weapons, or any other gimmicks. There are two characters to choose from. Both play very similar, but the difference is how their charge-up shots work. Both characters also have the ability dodge, jump, and fly. Beyond that, the concept is simple... shoot everything that moves and blast away massive boss enemies. This game relies on brilliant level designs and boss fights, which is a welcome breath of fresh air to the genre. Some levels are strictly 3D where you shoot everything ahead of you and others are truly old-school 2D scrolling levels. The transition between the two level types is seamless and I didn't even realize it happened until several minutes after slipping into a 2D level. Unexpected but very welcome.
PRESENTATION: S&P2 is basically a huge chain of impressive boss battles strung together with short sections filled to the brim with enemies. Killing more than 600 enemies on a single level isn't unheard of. The storyline that ties this game together is pretty bad, basically giving the player a taste of some of the worst anime script writing I have suffered through. The voice actors sound bored and it is pretty obvious they didn't put much effort into their recording.Read more ›
if you've never played the original, you're in for a real mind warp; the hallmarks of the series- the fast pace, high difficulty, ever-changing gameplay and sheer number of enemies on screen at once- are incomparable to anything else out there and the extra power provided by the wii has been used to it's fullest to absolutely drench the screen in robots and gunfire; starfox, even on it's hardest levels, is a walk in the park compared to this.
the game is played by controlling one of two human(ish) characters, isa and kachi, by either walking and jumping on the ground or hovering in the air with a jetpack. you'll be penalized with a halt of your score counter while using the jetpack (it climbs continuously while on the ground), but otherwise you're free to make the choice to take to the air anytime without any restrictions, and the ability to do so is extremely liberating.
your main weapon is a rapid fire laser that can be charged periodically to unleash devastating attacks, with each character's attack being charged in a different way; kachi will lock onto multiple enemies at once and deliver moderately powerful missiles to each, while isa fires a single atomic blast.Read more ›
While it's incredibly fun, there are just a few things to be aware of before you buy Sin and Punishment. The game is very hard. Even on normal mode (easy and hard are your other options), I found myself dying A LOT. If you love a good challenge, dive right in. If not, try starting out on Easy, or you may find yourself wanting to pitch your Wii remote through your TV in frustration.
Also, the game is short. It'll only take you 5-10 hours to play through it once. Know as well that the story isn't terribly compelling, but that if you buy this game, it won't be for it's intriguing plot. It'll be for the stellar gameplay.

Absolutely hands down the #1, or tied for #1, on-rails arcade shooter. The wii remote and nunchuck are truly innovative and used to their full potential here. The fun don't stop!Published 9 months ago by Logan V.

This game is real cool, and fun.

Five stars because it's as expected but the game itself is easy for like two levels then gets so much going on the screen at once that I get way deep in trouble and can't get out. Read morePublished 13 months ago by A. Barker
