Moon Diver

Gaming Evolution
19 July 2011
  • Conclusion: While not the best game in the world, together with titles like Scott Pilgrim VS the World and Final Fight Double Impact, Moondiver shows the potential of the brawling genre for the new generation of gamers.

  • Summary: While it's easy to compare it to Capcom's 1989 hit Strider, Moon Diver certainly stands on its own. The game does suffer from repetitive gameplay and a bit too much grinding, but the fact-paced action and four-player mode more than makes up for the shortcomings!

  • Summary: Sometimes it feels like I became a games journalist just so I could beg, plead, and demand Capcom make a proper sequel to Strider.  Although the name doesn't command much attention these days, this arcade gem (the first must-own game for the Sega Genesis) is one of my all-time favorite games.

Moon Diver

Total Xbox
5 May 2011
  • Excerpt: It’s hard to tell exactly what the heck is going on in 2081, but apparently some supernatural schmuck has left most of Europe a smoldering ruin. Four neon-hued heroes rise from the rubble to leap, dash, slide, and slash their insanely monotonous side-scrolling way through legions of evil machines.
  • Pros: + Online co-op; some cool bosses; fairly slick visuals; dozens of collectible abilities.
  • Cons: - Unnecessarily long stages filled with dim drones; occasional insta-deaths., - Solo play is a hopeless grind; customization points take forever to make a difference., ? Why do stages unlock separately for each character?

  • Excerpt: Moon Diver, directed by Koichi Yotsui of Strider fame, breathes life back into those classic, button-mashing, ridiculously difficult side-scrollers of old. With graphics and sound that will take you back and fuelled with a modern 4 player co-op, Moon Diver could relive some great memories – if you...

  • Conclusion: By invoking the spirit of Strider, albeit with some careful considerations for contemporary values, Moon Diver is generally a success. Its biggest accomplishment is not the good use of online, but perhaps its use of the supposed parameters – compact structures, delineated mechanics – that...

  • Conclusion: Do we really need to see the same unskippable cut-scene every time a spell is cast?
  • Pros: Starting the first stage and being greeted by a screen full of faceless baddies and an earful of cheesy, pulse-pounding electronic music.
  • Cons: The hour-long final stage.

Moon Diver Review: Feelplus Falls Just Short Of The Strider Legacy

Game Informer
4 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Concept: Strider creator tries to modernize his classic Capcom arcade title with Square Enix Graphics: Think anime meets Power Rangers Sound: A forgettable soundtrack, and thankfully there’s no voice acting Playability: The full Strider move set is here and feels just as tight as the original...
