  • 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.

Game Over Online
30 May 2011
  • Excerpt: 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. Moon Diver fits that description like a glove, as it's a bizarre sort of spiritual sequel to the Strider series, made by the same director and with the same ridiculously frenetic action sequences. The story is paper-thin and largely irrelevant.

Moon Diver

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: There's a story behind Moon Diver , though at some point, it blends into the background. It's pure old school arcade action, which is what the game, despite its many bumps, succeeds in delivering. Still, those bumps are major obstacles. You probably won't know what's going on half the time, but at least Moon Diver attempts to put on a good show.

  • Excerpt: for a new generation. And indeed, when one starts this straight-ahead, hack ‘n slash side-scroller, the similarities are obvious: our ninja hero can hang, cling, flip and climb, very much like that bad-ass protagonist from 1989. And in fact, it’s just as repetitive and focuses even more on button-mashing, if that’s possible.

  • 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.

  • Summary: PSN + Square Enix = Moon Diver... Ja, richtig gelesen, ganz plötzlich ist er da, der neue Side-Scroller des weltbekannten Erfolgsstudios! Ob diese Gleichung aufgeht oder die PlayStation 3 (und bald folgend auch die XBox 360) lieber dem Internet fern bleiben sollte, erfahrt Ihr hier...
  • Pros: Knallbunte Grafik, Mehrspielermodus on- und offline, Gutes Balancing, einfache Steuerung, Klasse eingedeutschte Bildschirmtexte, Auch für jüngere Spieler geeignet, Rockiger Soundtrack
  • Cons: Knallbunte Grafik, Mehrspielermodus on- und offline, Gutes Balancing, einfache Steuerung, Klasse eingedeutschte Bildschirmtexte, Auch für jüngere Spieler geeignet, Rockiger Soundtrack

  • Excerpt: Chamar Moon Diver de sucessor espiritual de Strider não é um exagero. Se não bastarem as semelhanças para tal - como o estilo de jogo, o qual escaladas e cortes longos e rápidos são constantes - é preciso dizer que a mente por trás do título é a mesma de 22 anos atrás, Kouichi Yotsui . É bem possível que tanto novatos quanto veteranos do estilo venham a se divertir igualmente.
  • Cons: Destravamento de personagens via DLC, História meio confusa
