For many, Successor of the Skies will be the game they’ve been waiting for, and it’s no surprise that it has come from shoot ‘em up veterans Treasure. Its masterful scoring system and airtight level design result in addictive and potentially limitless score focused gameplay, while Wii specifics such as analogue control combined with pointer aiming fit the core design like a glove. The action never rests, with climatic battles and frantic gunplay that put most other modern self-proclaimed action games to shame. It’s a crime something of such high quality and entertainment value has been denied a local release, but at least a localized version exists at all. Nobody should have to wait seven years to play a gem like this. That truly would be punishment.
