Sin & Punishment: Star Successor

 

When the original Sin and Punishment came out in Japan at the tail end of the Nintendo 64's lifespan, many Nintendo fans living in North America and Europe clamored and hoped that it would be localized for their regions. Unfortunately, their cries were...

Unending barrage of action, perfect controls

Graphics aren't too impressive

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor Review

 

A Treasured classic.

Innovative 3D take on the Â"bullet hellÂ" shooter formula; inventive and often bizarre enemies; flawless control; classic Treasure gameplay qualities; rewarding but ruthless difficulty; time-honored score-based replay value

Co-op mode is half-assed; irrelevant story; graphics are well past their expiration date; character hit box is not clear; short length might be an issue for some

ItÂ's very rare for me to restart a game immediately after my first playthrough, but I found Sin & Punishment: Star Successor to be so addictive and compelling in terms of raw gameplay that I completed the normal difficulty with both characters back to...

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor- Wii

 

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor's brilliance is in its simplicity. It is about pattern recognition, timing, and accuracy, which are all core skills of gaming. It is not about how long you spend level grinding or number crunching. The game is very...

Virtue and Reward

The Lovecraftian transformations of Armon Ritter

The painfully sluggish sword fight against Hibaru Yaju

For the genre fan,?Sin & Punishment: Star Successor will be a sublime, smoothly controlling treat. For the novice, it's a fairly gentle introduction to a classically hardcore experience. For Treasure, it's a great chance to addict a vast new audience...
