    If you're interested in Moon Diver, play halfway through the game by yourself to gain some levels, collect various magic, and get used to the structure. Then fire up multiplayer and never look back.

    If you enjoy your old-school 2D action games played with a friend or two, Moon Diver could certainly scratch that itch. On the other hand, it doesn't really do anything all that special and if you aren't used to the punishing nature (read: difficulty!) of these games, then it might be best to avoid this one.

    A good game for the niche of gamers it's aimed at, but it's also inconsistent and flawed.

    If you are looking for a single player experience, then you will want to look elsewhere. But even if you and three friends are looking at tackling this as your next co-op game, be warned that the slow pace of customization/level-up points requires a deep amount of dedication. Only the hardcore should apply; everyone else will probably be happier playing Castle Crashers.

    The experience is rather decent, even if its unforgiving nature can grate on occasion. [Issue#74, p.101]

    Moon Diver is a game largely imperfect, but at the same time it's able to amuse and entertain. For those who are looking for a challenging hack'n slash, this could be a good choice.

    It's tough but it's worth it. Grab some friends and kick back for serious old-school fun. If you're not into the genre, though, there's nothing here that will transform you.

    Moon Diver is one of those old-school action games that Castlevania and Strider fans will recognize at first sight. Unfortunately it offers a very difficult "solo" gameplay and a confusing multiplayer experience.
