Fantastic, but short, Sparkster's return is a double edged sword

Summary: The game is awesome - lets' get that out of the bag right now. Very few games have successfully translated the charm and color of the old 16-bit, uber polished, platformers into 3D, but Climax has done it. This game pops. And it plays incredibly well - none of that mushiness that early 2.5D games had. This is like Street Fighter IV - tight; in that it plays just as well as any of the 2D games that have preceeded it.
A fun homage to forgotten title of yesteryear isn't without its faults.

Summary: I loved, loved, LOVED Rocket Knight Adventures on the Sega Genesis. And while I was a little bit disappointed this wasn't a port or remake of the game I have so many fond memories of, this sequel has managed to (mostly) stick with what works and give it a shiny new 21st-century sheen. The meat-and-potatoes platforming sections are fun, fairly linear affairs filled with opportunities to let loose with Sparkster's jetpack attacks.
