    While Mega Coin Squad could've gone the extra mile with more single player oomph and online play, what's here is more than serviceable for those looking for a great time with some friends – or collecting coins on their own. The gameplay is original and a lot of fun, and the presentation is right up the alley of Genesis/SNES owners, right down to the cute animations.

    Mega Coin Squad provides a unique and colorful 2D platforming experience for gamers, but its lack of online multiplayer really keeps it from reaching its highest potential.
  3. In 60 minutes, this will change you from tentative, stodgy muppet to an all-round offensive terror. A terrifically balanced platformer that'll coax out the perfectionist speedrunner in us all.

    Mega Coin Squad would have worked incredibly well on arcade machines, but it still works on console. A great choice if you want a game to play with friends.

    An arena shooter heavily influenced by 8 and 16-bit era games like Super Mario Bros., Smash Bros. and Street Fighter. Frenzied and funny, it shines in local multiplayer while the single player campaign proved to be overly short.

    Ultimately Mega Coin Squad isn’t a bad game, nor is it a memorable game. It’s something to pass the time on for a few minutes.

    Mega Coin Squad is a fast-paced coin collecting platformer with fun gameplay and visually pleasing retro style. Though its single-player gets repetitive fast, gamers looking for a fun and chaotic experience with friends will love the multiplayer.

    Mega Coin Squad provides a challenging and engaging experience for platformer fans, but a short campaign and lack of online play bring the experience down a bit.

Its brutally hard and near impossible to get the full 1000 gamer score. This is one of those games that should have achievements for how many times you die. This is for those who are either expert gamers, or have ENDLESS patience.
    The only reason I gave it a 2 instead of a 1 is because the first couple of levels did make it seem interesting but it very quickly became a haphazard mess and the single biggest waste of my hard earned dollars in my history of owning consoles.
    Also, this game taught me a valuable lesson about blindly buying new games. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

    This is a fun little game that is fairly easy for the first 4 or 5 levels. Then the difficulty really picks up.

    It hearkens back to the days of Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Megaman.
    Great couch multiplayer game as well. My 7 year old and I love it.
