Excerpt: I remember back during the Nintendo 64, and some journalists suggesting that 2D games were dead. Well all these years later, and 2D games like Rocket Knight are not only released, but they thrive. Konami has revived this franchise, and I for one am happy to see it.
Summary: " Rocket Knight " is a decent little game. It looks and plays great, but it’s pretty pricey and really very short.

Excerpt: Where is the anthropomorphised hero these days? Skinned and draped round the latest generic space marine no doubt; the muscle head grunting and flexing, cursing at girls while blowing large chunks out of muddy environments with equally brown enemies.

Conclusion: This is a remarkable example of a series reboot, which remains faithful to the source material while making changes that increased its enjoyment tenfold. I recommend this game to anyone who has ever enjoyed a platformer in their life.
