  1. Had WinBack 2 been released in 2002/2003, it would have been far better received but as a full-priced game released in 2006 it has to be held to the same standards as other top notch software and it falls short.
  2. 60
    The generic levels, poor audio, and sometimes downright confusing level objectives and bizarre CRT system become a little worse for wear.
  3. The presentation of Project Poseidon also leaves much to be desired, with awkward and simplistic texturing, not to mention some downright asinine vocals.
  4. Worth a rental for those in need of an action fix or someone with a short attention span.

    A stupefyingly simple and basic action game that will only linger in the memory because of the laugh-out-loud funny voice acting. [July 2006, p.98]
  6. Basically, what we have here is the same game as was released in 2001, except it's five years later, near the end of the system's life, the plot has taken a downward turn, and the muddled controls have gotten even more muddled.
  7. Some aspects are incredibly polished and fun, but others are terrifically broken, and while there's a real sense that it could have earned a lot more than a five, overall it doesn't.
  8. Koei tries to revive the Winback franchise, but with limited success, thanks to a bare-boned story, simplistic gameplay and the lack of a challenging AI.
