    A terrific game. While not much has changed between this game and the first, that's not necessarily a bad thing. The storyline is more engrossing than ever, and players will always be compelled to push on… for humanities sake, and for the one individual with whom you start to develop a relationship with.

    It fails to match the original's arcade urgency, but if you have to have it, the new co-op maps and upgrade system make this the definitive remake. [Issue#231, p.93]
