    Far surpasses the first iPhone game, and is one of the best shooters on the App Store.

    Fixes all but the basic problem of aiming from the first title, making this a great action-shooter experience for iDevice gamers to enjoy.

    It improves on the first game, but not enough to warrant the high price.
  4. Feb 22, 2011
    60
    A game that suffers more in its execution than it does its technical capacity.
  5. Feb 22, 2011
    55
    The visceral thrill of actually aiming and firing at marauders and thugs simply cannot be replaced by tapping on a small screen. But the bottom line is that I just did not enjoy Time Crisis 2nd Strike.

    A mediocre shooter lacking basic options and gameplay fun enough to entice replay.

    Maybe with a price cut and some rebalancing work this could be worth getting, but right now it's a bit of a shambles.
