Very hard-core

Greg Mullane, Amazon
21 January 2009
  • Summary: This is the ultimate side scrolling game. The levels are varied, the weapons are well done, the sounds and graphics are excellent, the enemies are levels are difficult, and the replay value is high. However, there is one issue that may be considered a positive or a negative: this is a very difficult game. The enemies are tough. One wrong move and it's game over. It would be nice if the 'easy' mode was just that, but even that mode may drive casual gamers away.

Old-school action never looked better!

Pachi the Snowman, Amazon

  • Summary: If any of you have played the first Nanostray, you know how annoying it was to use the stylus to change the position of your weapon satellites while trying to navigate the ship without getting blown up. Thankfully, the only real flaw with the original Nanostray has been corrected in this glorious sequel as you can now reposition your satellites with the L and R buttons. That being said, this game is ridiculously addictive and nearly perfect as far as shooters go.

Great fun, amazing graphics, left me wanting more.

D. Diskin, Amazon

  • Summary: I really liked this game, and it brought me back to the good ol' days of R-Type and Gradius before everything went crazy 3-D. The game has a great soundtrack that never got boring, and amazing visuals. It's got quite a few different play modes too, including some challenge rounds that unlock mini games like an Araknoid ripoff which are pretty fun. There were a few disappointments for me, though.

most underrated game on the DS

Eddy Liao, Amazon
25 April 2008
  • Summary: The game released without any fanfare, which is a shame because the first edition was the best looking game on the system, and this game is the only one that surpasses it. As a fan of shoot-em-ups, this game manages to maintain a very frantic momentum without slowing down, and the bosses, background, and executions are breathtaking. This is the title I show off to friends who complain about DS graphics.

Surpasses the first game in every way

N. Durham "Big Evil", Amazon
6 April 2008
  • Summary: Nanostray 2 surpasses the original game in nearly every way, providing some more than solid, old school shooter action for the DS. For those unfamiliar with the first Nanostray, Nanostray 2 is an interstellar scrolling shooter that will bring back fond memories of those who grew up with games like Star Fox, R-Type, Einhander, and the like; as you encounter hordes of enemies across eight different planets.

Wonderfully more fun and exciting than the first

L. Lemmond, Amazon
19 March 2008
  • Summary: I'm happy to say that Nanostray 2 dispels the myths about sequels. This shooter game is addictive and fun and is now my favorite DS game. I love it! They've added a selection screen at the beginning of the game so that you can choose your level of difficulty. This adds tremendously to the replay value. You can play on an easier selection and then increase the level of difficulty as you improve. There are several selections for gameplay.

The Son of Defender

Jamey Leonard "highmaybulin", Amazon
17 March 2008
  • Summary: This is a very fun DS action-type game. If you have any history playing old video games (which a lot of DS players don't have) this game will remind you a little mix of Defender, Xevious and Raiden. It's addictive as all-get-out and it will keep you focused on your DS. Time just flies by playing this game. It's great for short bus trips, and probably for long plane flights - and isn't that what the DS is really for? For $[...

Made with Love and Tenderness

Terramax "Terramax", amazon.co.uk
28 December 2009
  • Summary: Made by German developers Shinen whose previous games included the original Nanostray along with the Iridion series on the GBA, this is their best 2D shmup yet and one of the best shooters on the DS. NS2 is executed as your typical `shmup', most particularly taking notes from the [often revered as the best in the genre] Gradius series. In fact, compare the first level of NS2 to that of Gradius V's and they're practically identical from the background to the enemies.
