Excerpt: Moon Diver - now available for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade - is the combined effort of director Koichi Yotsui, developer Feel Plus, and publisher Square-Enix. Koichi Yotsui also directed the arcade game Strider in addition to Moon Diver. Moon Diver is a 2D sidescroller, with 3D graphics, and also implements some RPG elements.
Excerpt: The story is paper-thin and largely irrelevant. Here's what you need to know: it's after the apocalypse, you're a ninja, and there are a nearly infinite number of robots, mutants, and enemy soldiers that are between you and the giant boss creatures you need to destroy. Okay? Cool. Go to town. One of the best things about the downloadable games market is that it's letting a lot of hopelessly niche titles find an audience, particularly for the last year or so.

Conclusion: Ett actionfyllt plattformsäventyr som går att avnjuta en till fyra spelare, där varje bana bjuder på högt tempo och välbalanserade utmaningar. Både en nostalgitripp och en utveckling av spelformen med tanke på erfarenhetssystemet och uppgraderbara attacker. Bosstriderna är storslagna och underhållande och spelet är relativt långt.
