Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is not only a must-buy game for existing fans, anyone who finds 2D action games appealing should definitely pick it up. When it comes to sequels, this really goes the extra mile.
“If you haven’t had the chance to experience both games, it’s definitely worth your time, but if you are looking for something different from the franchise, don’t expect lightning to strike twice.”
Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is a good game, and while it really plays it safe by being so similar to its predecessor, it's an easy recommendation for action genre fans. For everyone else, however, it's a bit more of a mixed result. The level design and bosses are uneven, resulting in some levels feeling fun and challenging while others are less enticing. Couple in the save system issues, bland plot and incessant dialogue, and it's easy to see how some wouldn't fall in love with this title.
However, it's a solid action title. The two characters are different enough to provide good variety, there are a lot of items to help customize your approach, and if you're up for replaying the game there's a lot to work at. If you liked the first Gunvolt, love Mega Man, or wish Mighty No. 9 would have been better, this game is for you. Those looking for something fresh, an interesting story, or an action game to play in bite-sized pieces on the go may want to think twice.
