  • Summary: This game is a must have for any shooter fan with a DS. It’s variety of play modes and difficulty will be keep you entertained indefinitely. My only real quarrel with the game is Adventure Mode’s "start from the beginning when you run out of lives" feature. Come on Majesco throw us a bone! But despite that annoying thorn, gamers are assured a good time with this pocket-sized shooter that you can pick up and play anywhere, anytime.
  • Pros: Beautiful graphics for a DS title., Old-school shooter goodness., Stylus controls that actually work.
  • Cons: Brutal difficulty level.

  • Summary: Depending on who you talk to, you’ll hear a variety of theories about what makes a great shooter. In the end, though, it comes down to this: a quality shooter should be fun to play... repeatedly. That’s all there is to it, and that’s why Nanostray 2 is such a success.

  • Excerpt: Shooters have been around since arcades ruled the videogame world and with the advent of handheld machines fans of the genre have been able to take their favorites style of game on the road with them. However, the Nintendo DS seems to have a very short supply of these classics. Majesco has stepped up to the plate to meet the DS’s needs in this area.

  • Excerpt: The shooter: It’s a classic genre that requires little more innovation than something to differentiate one title from the next. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t welcome a novel take on scrolling action. Shin’en’s Nanostray, was an early DS shooter with a maligned control scheme and overly-forgiving gameplay. Yet, for all of its woes, the game managed to produce impressive visuals and still-compelling action.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: While Nanostray 2 doesn't do anything particularly great, it has enough winning elements to make for an enjoyable game. On top of that, it's not like there are a whole lot of other options for shoot-em up fans on the DS. If you're a fan of arcade style shooters and are looking for a little twitch gaming on the go then Nanostray 2 may be worth a look.
