    The only real problem Bleed 2 suffers from is its length. If it was longer, it would’ve been an essential for arcade game fans.

    Bleed 2 is a very accurately named game. In many ways it could be seen as a level pack for its predecessor, but the few small changes in the design all help to make it a better experience. These kinds of short, creative games are perfect for the eShop, and if we see Bleed 3 at some point I wouldn’t hesitate to pick it up.

    Bleed 2 is a game that prides itself on giving the player a memorable and distilled experience that gets at the heart of what makes arcade games great. Those looking for a deep well of diverse content will find themselves dissatisfied, but those looking for a game about raw, fun gameplay will find more than enough satisfaction in the nearly endless options for replayability. We’d give Bleed 2 a strong recommendation; it combines charming presentation and tight mechanics to provide an experience that’s as focused as it is enjoyable.

    In the beginning, Bleed 2 makes you feel like a noob again to later show you that practice is the secret to master it. Following in its predecessor’s footsteps, this sequel doesn’t take many risks, being continuist on the visuals and the sound, but improving the speed and variety, including an amazing co-op mode where addiction will be the least of your problems.

    Bleed 2 offers good, frantic twin-stick shooting fun, but it would have been nice to see a few more levels and a bit more depth to the game beyond the frequent boss battles. Taken with the first game, though, Bleed is a fun package.

    A super sharp, violent action game that's worth checking out.

    The addition of Co-op is a great idea – though I didn’t have as much time with the mode as I would have liked. Several characters can be unlocked and each brings something fresh to the game and once the story mode is finished there’s still so much to do. Bleed 2 is simple, unadulterated fun.

What I think makes this game truly amazing is its variety of diverse bosses, all unique and memorable. Story on top of Endless mode, Boss Rush and capable co-op, this game was made purely to be a blast. Expand

    Completed Bleed 2 on the Switch last evening. There are a lot of bosses which are awesome (some remakes from Bleed 1) and not a lot ofCompleted Bleed 2 on the Switch last evening. There are a lot of bosses which are awesome (some remakes from Bleed 1) and not a lot of platforming sections which I don't personally enjoy that much. The music is good and it is definitely an intense / fast pace game. Most of the enemies are easily killable from a distance. I found Bleed 2 a little bit easier than the first entry, but probably because I was now used to the controls which you can change by the way. It deserves a 7.5 in my opinion due to the poor platforming sections (the floating one was pretty cool tho) and the lenght of the game as I completed it in about 90 minutes. I recommend it because it is very fun and quite unique! Expand
