Critic Reviews for Blaster Master Zero 2

Blaster Master Zero 2 is a clear improvement on its predecessor. The graphics are slightly better, the story is better written, and the soundtrack is more diverse; I could go on and on. Maybe Zero 2 won't make a convert out of you if you didn't enjoy the first, but it is well worth exploring for fans of Inti Creates and Blaster Master.

While the difficulty level is not always constant, this is a competent effort that can be enjoyed by players of any profile.

The game progresses through and uncovers new abilities at a swift and balanced pace. The weapons are super fun to discover and mess with, and the very nature of what makes Blaster Master gameplay so excellent has never shone so bright and wonderful.
