I played this at the local GS a few weeks back and I really liked it. I decided to cut back on new purchases and to play some of the backlog. I finally got to RE 5 and at Wesker already. Next up is Metroid OM and GTA 4. Hopefully this doesn't become rare down the road.

You beat me to it. I was going to say the same, and am amazed just how quickly the price dropped on this game. I bought it when it first came out, and still haven't played it (that's what being a member of this site is all about :lol: )!

This game sucks. Don't patronize Treasure with your $23.28. They can do better.

what did you pair with it? I couldn't find a game that wasn't for kids.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

You are actually amazed that a shmup from treasure dropped in price. You must be new to this. And yeah, CAG is all about buying great games that you'll never play.

I have heard this, usually it's because the game is too hard and semi on rails when people were expecting a free roam deal, I dunno why he/she says this but I seen a few complaints of "this game blows" and usually that was the reason, they were in person though, once at Gamestop(some lady was returning it) and once at Best Buy when a dude was with his buddy and had the game in his hand, his buddy had a vendetta against the game. :lol:

Does anyone know if it is possible to buy this from Walmart in the 2 for $30 deal, and exchange the other game for a different game in store? The only decent game other than this is Sonic Racing, and I already have it.

Eat me. I loved the first game. I have the actual N64 Japanese import cartridge.

The sequel blows for many reasons.

It ditches the gritty feel of the first game. Everything's bubbly and pretty. I know what everybody's thinking, but I want my Sin and Punishment to be gritty and dirty.

The controls with the wiimote and nunchuk suck. Aiming is impossible when you're jamming on the buttons all the time.

They brought back the worst part of the first game, the side scrolling levels. For every time somebody mentioned the awesomeness of the aircraft carrier level of the first game, there was somebody who justifiably complained about the side scrolling level of the first game, too. It wasn't fun.

Speaking of the aircraft carrier level, there's no equal in the sequel. Nothing to make me go "wow" even though I was playing the game on hardware inferior to what was available at the time. (The Dreamcast and PS2 in the first game's days.) The sequel completely lacks the wow factor.

The flying around Space Harrier stuff is the exact opposite of what the first Sin and Punishment was all about.

In short, the sequel is absolutely horrible, and it is yet another example of just how far Treasure has fallen.

I don't know, besides complaining that the side-scrolling level isn't fun, you didn't list anything that makes it sound like a bad game. The reviews I read haven't complained about the controls and aiming, so I guess that's subjective.

The difficulty sounds like a nuisance, though.

If it is discounted this low, it is possible it may go down to $19.99 for the prelude to Black Friday Sale. This is total speculation though so decide what you will.

It's a Treasure game. Expectations are high going in. When you buy a Treasure game, you expect to buy something SPECTACULAR!!! At least, that's how it used to be.

Sure, it's not a bad game, but it's horrible by Treasure's standards. It's absolutely horrible that it's so middle of the road. There are a zillion games that are better than this and are more worth your time.

But I do stand by that list of problems I had with it. Those problems should have never cropped up.

I have only played a few minutes of the first game on VC (I'll go back to it when I finish Star Successor), but I think I get what you mean by "pretty." Star Successor's boy and girl character designs are "pretty" in kind of a creepy "drawn by Napoleon Dynamite" way. I really like the game, but I get a little creeped out every time the game stops to focus attention on any of the human characters.

I don't think it ever was that way. Apart from Gunstar Heroes, just about everything I have played from them ranges from "quality" to "overrated and too self-indulgent."

That said, once you wrangle the controls under control (And there is no default scheme that works properly for the Wiimote/Nunchuk combo. You HAVE to fight it out to separate the melee buttons, stow the worthless jump key somewhere, and ensure all your bases are covered.), I had no issues with them.

Chuplayer is absolutely correct in that there is nothing quite as wow-inducing as the aircraft carrier chapter from S&P1, but I still think as a whole it averages out to be a worthy sequel to S&P. Like any Treasure game, it has issues but for $20 you'll get your money's worth.

It is a YMMV price at Target. My Target still has it for $34.98 on clearance...had it been $24.98, I would have picked it up. I will give it another week to drop a bit more.
