Conclusion: Sin and Punishment: The Star Successor carries on the Treasure tradition splendidly. The difficulty may scare some players away, and Star Successor probably isn't for them. However, anyone that has fond memories of old school gaming and owns a Wii, this is definitely one release to check out.
Conclusion: Sin & Punishment: Star Successor is a fun shooter, but it’s not quite a grand adventure. Nintendo deprived their fans of the first game for so long, and now they answer the cry with something that feels a bit outdated. It’s also a fairly anemic package in light of the asking price.
Fresh and frantic arcade shooter combines many genres.

Summary: Parents need to know that this game features fantasy violence between two humans and a number of enemy robots and bizarre creatures in a futuristic Japan. The guns, fighting moves, and enemies are highly fantastic and not meant to seem realistic. There's no blood or gore.
Review: Sin and Punishment: Star Successor (Nintendo Wii)
31 July 2010
Summary: As much as I enjoyed my time with Sin and Punishment 2 , I can’t deny it is in the lower tier of Treasure developed games. I mean, it’s not Ikaruga , Radiant Silvergun , Guardian Heroes , Gunstar Heroes or Bangai-O by any stretch of the imagination.
