Summary: If you enjoyed Space Harrier and Rez then this is the game for you! You basically control a flying character and have to shoot as many enemies as you can on screen without getting hit. This increases your multiplier which increases your score dramatically. As soon as you take a hit your multiplier drops. In the long levels you fight about 4 sub-bosses then a big one at the end. There are only 7 levels but each level is divided into different parts so they are quite long.
Summary: *PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS REVIEW IS SPOILER FREE* After 10 long years, Nintendo and Treasure finally bring a sequel to the N64 classic 'Sin and Punishment' (available to download on Wii VC). For those not in the know, Treasure have been long regarded as masters in shooting/action games and to be straight up, S&P2 is one of the best action games you will ever play. Dont take my word for it, gamers and critics/gaming sites such as IGN, Teletext, Edge, etc..
Conclusion: Its hard to know where to begin with how to describe this game, but i have had it for some time & it really is amazing. The controls for the 1st time, just feel so perfect with little to no need for classic/gc configs. For those of you who wanna know how this game plays, it is almost identical to rez & lylat wars, in that you use a combination of the lock on system & dodging to tactically take down the on screen opponents.
Sin And Punishment is the most amazing 2 player shooter!

Conclusion: I remember when I had my N64 and the first Sin and Punishment looked excellent and got great reveiws but it never got released in the U.K. and was a Japanese release only which was a real shame but, you can download it now from the Wii Virtual Console at long last. I love arcade shoot em ups and we are very lucky to have Sin and Punishment : Successor of the Skies because the Wii sequel is one of the best arcade shoot em up I have played since Lyat Wars on the N64 or...
