Nintendo Life: Shock Troopers 2nd Squad Review

Nintendo Life: Much like the original Shock Troopers game, 2nd Squad is very much inspired by the early days of arcade gaming, when overhead run-and-gun titles like Capcom's Commando were in vogue. While the game has a very Metal Slug feel to it, the multi-directional scrolling and 360 degree movement and firing make for quite an intense and engaging experience. The team mode has been dropped, but the developers have tossed in a few unique gameplay twists to not only make up for the loss, but also add even more speed and intensity to the game. (Shock Troopers 2nd Squad, Wii) 8/10
