Out today on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, Cyber Citizen Shockman 2: A New Menace looks to continue the story.
WTMG's Oliver Shellding: "In the end, people have to decide what they want to do the most. While there’s inherent value in seeking out the first installment to fully understand, the subsequent story is more coherent, more entertaining and fills in the gaps when necessary to bring you up to speed. The action is stronger, but the character development also gives more compassion and connection with which to identify. It’s certain to be a lasting creation, and, even decades later, it stands as the seminole work when it comes to dark future predictions, deadpan acting, successful child stars and iconic lines. I cannot stress enough that fans of science fiction, action or strong female leads should watch Terminator 2: Judgment Day, not only to honor the impact that it made but also to appreciate what it can still do today."
Lacking the novel concepts of the first game, Cyber Citizen Shockman 2: A New Menace feels very run-of-the-mill as a result.
