    Irritation, apathy, mild disinterest - just a few things we felt while playing Moon Diver. [Issue#205, p.94]

    The only way to experience the whole game with relative ease is by dipping your toes in the online pool. Unfortunately, most of the title is plagued by repetition, lifeless design, and enough Japanese obscurity to deter most enthusiasts, meaning Moon Diver's appeal is broken quicker than Ryan Giggs' super injunction.

    Moon Diver has many flaws: poor gameplay, an absent narration, an unbalnced difficulty level. More than enough to stay away from it.

    A bunch of misfit characters, bland stages and overly repetitive, mash-happy action. [Issue#109, p.110]

    Anyone that is still actively playing (and enjoying) old beat 'em ups like Strider or Shinobi may have the temperance to enjoy Moon Diver. The controls are some of the tightest I've played in a platformer. Unfortunately, the crappy everything-else means that those who spend most of their time in modern games should stay there.

    A massive disappointment. It has all of the elements of a true classic, but ultimately falls short due to poor execution.

    I personally think this game is really good but this is coming from someone who loves sidescroller action games and rpgs. If you don't mindI personally think this game is really good but this is coming from someone who loves sidescroller action games and rpgs. If you don't mind the difficulty of the single player then you should be alright with the game. You can customize your favorite character by finding Moonsault Combos (or MCs) and by upgrading your stats as you level up. There are a few problems and that is that the multiplayer may be confusing for a majority of players and some levels will force you to grind levels. Overall in my opinion it's worth it if you enjoy these types of games Full Review »
