  1. This is one of the most entertaining GBA games I have had the pleasure to play this year. With improved visuals, gameplay and mode variety, there is very little to flaw this excellent action title with.
  2. With a variety of gameplay in the single-player mode, improved and even longer than the first title, C.T. Special Forces 2 is just the right mix of action for handheld gamers.
  3. Difficulty level aside, this is an excellent game that fans of shooters should not pass up.
  4. Overflows with action and there’s a nice diversity within the game’s levels that makes this sequel superior to the original.
  5. Pocket Games
    Exactly what a sequel should be - the original done bigger and better. [Summer 2004, p.36]
  6. If LSP can fix the somewhat limited maneuverability of the on-foot levels, deepen the narrative, and add even more upgrades, than Hip-Games will have an irrefutable winner on its hands that no gamer could turn down.
  7. Both a very good side-scrolling shoot-'em-up and a spectacular follow-up to the original game, but, like so many other similar games on the GBA, it doesn't really bring anything new to the genre.
  8. Nintendo Power
    A sharp action title with great control and lots of surprises. [Mar 2004, p.121]
  9. 70
    The game is significantly better than last year's original, offering an obvious set of tweaks and improvements to the overall action experience on the Game Boy Advance.
  10. Cheat Code Central
    There are more levels, more enemies, more vehicles, more weapons and more missions than ever before. There's no better time to join the Special Forces than right now.
  11. It’s a shame that the game comes to an end so soon. There are five levels in total and while each consists of various stages, they’re fairly short, meaning it isn’t long before the final boss falls and the credits are rolling.

I got this game used and i found it with glitches and normally i would turn it back in for my cash back. CT won me over though, i love this game. I really like the graphics and the fast continuous gameplay and i thought the music was excellent. This game is seriously unknown and its a shame because it really is a good game. Full Review »
