Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is a satisfying experience that never lets up with its distinct, tightly-paced action and challenging platforming.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2's offers a unique method of taking down bad guys, which is enough to differentiate it from the Mega Man Zero series that indirectly spawned it. Tagging and shooting foes is tons of fun and the ability to play as Copen is a nice addition, but Gunvolt 2 still has notable issues with repetitive level design. Still, if you enjoyed the first game, there's no reason you won't have a blast with this one.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2's levels play things a little close to the chest, but the sheer breadth of tactics opened up by the inclusion of Copen make it even easier to recommend than its predecessor. It's a jolly old platforming time, and I hope it reaches the level of success it was destined to hit.

It’s a great game for speed-runners and those looking to memorize the ins and outs of old-school platforming stages. Plus, the barrier for entry is much smaller because it’s an easier game. However, I found the first one more memorable in spite of its rudimentary platforming. I’d play that one first to find out what this series is all about.
