Sin & Punishment: Star Successor super review

A little slice of bullet hell

For

  • Great combo-based
  • arcade-like shooting
  • Empowering abilities
  • like missile-kicking
  • Some pretty groovy music underneath it all

Against

  • Initially super hard
  • then almost too easy
  • Both players onscreen would've been nice
  • Let a man name his profile Fart
  • yeesh

You know all those %26ldquo;bullet hell%26rdquo; shoot %26lsquo;em ups that insist on cramming as many projectiles on the screen as possible? The kind that seem to require a superhuman level of hand-eye coordination to survive? Sin %26amp; Punishment is the accessible, tough-but-not-impossible version of the genre, tossing endless amounts of lasers, missiles and rocket-breathing monstrosities in your face, albeit in a manageable, less rage-quitty kind of way.

That said, this still sums up most of the game:
