A knowing tribute to some of the greats of action gaming, and a highly competent 2D shooter in its own right.

Bleed 2 manages to feel accessible while still rewarding precision and accuracy. It plays wonderfully, and you can enjoy it as a light co-op experience or really break it down and dig in to master its intricacies. I'd definitely recommend playing with a controller, but if you're looking for a fast-paced platformer with plenty of action, Bleed 2 has you covered.

For fans of fast-paced, over the top twin stick action, complete with bullet time and a score system that awards perfection, Bleed 2 is excellent. The only real issue is its length, which is remedied to an extent by additional characters, weapons, and modes. If arcade, Contra/Metal Slug action is your thing and you've been missing it, you could do much worse than Bleed 2.

An extremely well done arcade game that doesn't last for long, but manages to entertain for a few hours at a low price.

Bleed 2 is an exhilarating, tight, and extremely fun game experience. The aesthetic may not be able to keep up with the game play, but Bleed 2 should be played by every fan of the run-n-gun platformer genre.

Bleed 2 is, quite simply put, intense fun bundled up into a small package.

Bleed 2 is a great choice for anyone who loves extremely fast-paced action games that reward skill. Particularly if you've ever wanted to quadruple jump a path through a swarm of gunfire and flaming wreckage, riddle a bunch of enemies with bullets in slow motion, and finish off a hostile helicopter by deflecting one of the dozen missiles it's launched that you back in its freaking face with your sword before touching the ground. It's that kind of game.

Bleed 2 is a game that prides itself on giving the player a memorable and distilled experience that gets at the heart of what makes arcade games great. Those looking for a deep well of diverse content will find themselves dissatisfied, but those looking for a game about raw, fun gameplay will find more than enough satisfaction in the nearly endless options for replayability. We'd give Bleed 2 a strong recommendation; it combines charming presentation and tight mechanics to provide an experience that's as focused as it is enjoyable.

A spectacular and addictive action game, with good music, characters that far from being charismatic end up pleasing you, and despite the uncomfortable controls at first and the lack of variety of their game modes, is a very addictive game.

A colorful sequel that heavily improves on the original's boss fights and presentation, while also giving much-needed tweaks to its shooting precision. Sure, the depth here in Bleed 2 may seem lacking to some, but for those wanting to hone their action-platformer skills, this one is a strong recommendation.
