At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the PixelJunk series looks pixel perfect all the time: No exceptions. It's almost boring to fire up PixelJunk Shooter 2 to discover that, yup, this too has the series' trademark pristine visual quality....

Developer Q-Games has made a name for themselves with their quirky PSN titles, and Pixeljunk Shooter 2 continues the trend.

While some of the charm of Pixeljunk Shooter 2 is lost because it recycles a lot of the same mechanics as the first, it’s still a damn fine arcade shooter. Enough new mechanics are tossed in on top of the old to keep it from feeling like Pixeljunk...

The challenge may be a little steep for newcomers, but PixelJunk Shooter 2 still lives up to the standard of quality and fun Q Games has consistently delivered.

This is a worthy follow-up to the excellent Pixeljunk Shooter, with heaps of fun and variety abound - but the dramatically increased difficulty is a problem. A great game exists beneath it, but proceed with caution.

Imaginative, stylish and rewarding, PixelJunk Shooter 2 offers more adventure and intrigue than half of today's so-called triple-A releases, building on the timeless fundamentals of games like Asteroids and Lander with elements that totally change how...
