    Fat Shark have managed to shoot themselves in the foot by simplifying a formula that worked rather well. Rearmed 2 does enough to remind players as to why the series is often remembered fondly, but quickly blurs the image by stuttering over its best features.

    Terrible just like the first one. Levels are all similar and boring with same enemies. You have a set number of continues then have to repeatTerrible just like the first one. Levels are all similar and boring with same enemies. You have a set number of continues then have to repeat entire 10 min long level, no thanks. The worst part is the controls. They still somehow haven't figured how to make it work after all these games. It shoots up diagonally when you shoot it but you never know exactly where it will go, and during swinging if you aren't perfectly lined up with its diagonal path you die. Shooting forwards requires holding downwards shooting (huh?). All the aiming requires combos of directions and shooting which are unintuitive and not helpful during fast motion activities. You can jump now in this one but its 1 inch off the ground. Cant jump and grab ledges, and cant grab while falling. Seemingly easy jumps made impossible by the terrible controls. You feel like tank that ways 1000 lbs, which is just sad for a platformer in 2011. It is stuck with platforming controls, mechanics, level design, save system, and enemies from late 80's/early 90's. There's a reason things have progressed since then. Guess capcom didn't get the memo. Full Review »
