The graphics are showing their age, but the constant explosions and showers of bullets keep Strikers visually interesting. And while the mechs and other alien craft aren't technically impressive by today's standards, they are well designed. The military marches that accompany the action are generic and forgettable, but the lively sound effects make up for them. Ad-hoc two-player cooperative play is available if you've got the means to take advantage of it, but even after playing through the game with a friend, the $11.99 price tag is likely to seem pretty stiff. Strikers 1945 Plus Portable is competent but unremarkable, and you can certainly get a lot more bang for your buck.
I guess that last thought really sums it up. For $5.99, it’s an inexpensive retro title that could really hit that sweet spot for action fans, but it’s a one-trick pony. I don’t expect to come back to it a whole lot after this review is posted. Capcom’s 1943 on the Nintendo Entertainment System may not be as adrenaline charged, but I appreciate it more since you can actually die and have it mean something. Strikers is better suited to an arcade setting, where mindless shooting and one-hit kills are the norm.
