ZTGD: Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype Review

Gambus Kahn Writes: Back in the early eighties, when I was a wee lad, I remember the days of going to the local pizzeria and feeling intoxicated by the smell of pizza as well as the site and sounds of electronic entertainment. In those days, a pizzeria wasn't just a place to dine on overpriced pizza, but it was like entering a new world, a world of dreamscapes powered by graphics, pixels and primitive digitized music. This is where I started to play games like Galaga, Space Invaders, and a few years later Life Force.

The story is too old to be commented.

I have X-2, and believe the review. It's excellent. As someone who was disappointed in how Himmelsturmer turned out, I'm happy to say that this is such a different beast.

I'm not sure what happened to Sidequest - they must have either taken user feedback extremely seriously, or they're now making the game that they wanted to at first, but the first one now looks like it was held back by the amount of time it took to put together the graphics engine. X-2 just looks like the game that Himmelsturmer should have been!

There's so much more of a "bullet-hell" influence on X-2: It's colorful, much more frantic, and full of great-looking bullet patterns that don't create any graphical slowdown when they're at critical mass. It's like a combination of Darius Gaiden and DoDonPachi. Now, back to trying out those challenges and pulling my hair out once I fail 20 minutes into them!

Are there more weapons? thats all i wanna know

as bad as X1 was (trust me it couldve been 1000% better) i still played it a thousand times but i hated the weapon selection

Missed only two trophies in the first one (one of them is going to be impossible thanks to my PS3 giving me the YLOD!)

Just trying to find one more bloody key on stage 6 to get up level 7...
