    This is some of the most fun I've had with a game so far this year, and it will go down as one of the best side-scrolling shooters of all time.

    Fast paced action, gargantuan bosses and a chaotic physics make for a run'n'gun fresh game and packed with solid ideas.

    In summation, riding wolves. Huge, awesome guns. Shoot stuff and marvel at just how much Intrusion 2 makes Adobe Flash, arguably the worst gaming platform in the world, actually look good. The one major complaint I have is that the game is fairly steep at ten bucks with a rather short playtime.

    Intrusion 2 is an addictive run 'n' gun, strong in the genre's distinctive elements and with a lot of variety.

    I dont understand what's with the negative reviews here.
    The controls are in the style of Abuse but the jumps are a bit floaty, which is no big deal because its mostly a shooter and not a platformer.
    The physics DO get a lil bit in the way and there is one puzzle that can take a couple minute to deal with because some robot's body gets in the way. That's it, 2 minutes.

    For the rest This is an awesome metal slug abuse like. The best I have seen in years.
    There is not many boss battles but hear me: those are possibly the best boss battles I have ever played in a game of this genre. The last boss is AMAZINGLY EPIC.

    The game is pretty short, but also its pretty cheap.

    Let's get one thing out of the way, I HATE games like this, I had to stop playing them to save money for smashed keyboards.

I don't know what it is that makes this so different from the others like it, but I played it on a recommendation and kept playing it. Even dying seemed justified, not like the game is trying to kill you. Awesome game. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Intrusion 2 is a side-scrolling shooter with a beautiful art-style, original level design, and an over-the-top experience highly recommended, esp because it's a labor of love for just one person, and you will literally be putting food in this guy's mouth by buying the game.

    I first heard about this game via reddit a friend of the person who made this game posted a short gameplay video to get some feedback. Well what I saw was a futuristic shooter with heaps of atmosphere and a metal soundtrack. The part that hooked me though that mid-level, the guy jumped on a wolf and rode him around, shooting enemies while the wolf bit them. Brilliant.

    Later I bought it as part of a bundle, and it turns out that the originality of the wolf was carried over into multiple situations: you can operate different mechs and there's a section where you ride downhill on a piece of a giant robot that you've just destroyed. For me, these parts and the ridiculously epic boss battles were what made say "wow!" aloud.

    Apart from that, the game has a well developed physics system (which sometimes gets annoying), and a really catchy heavy music that feeds the energy of the game. It's short (took me 3.5hrs on easy), but there are no boring bits, and the art style is very much like 90's anime, which helps create a great overall atmosphere for the game.

TheUnfortunately this game has been severely overlooked and under publicized. It's a masterpiece up there with metal slug and contra. The ambition is extraordinary especially in the boss battles which take on epic proportions, in the way God of War bosses feel. The gameplay is splendid, responsive and intuitive, enhanced by a physics engine which feels advanced for an indie title. My biggest problem however was with the controls. Your character has a specific jump height which doesn't change depending on how long you hold down the button. Secondly, you jump by pressing the up button. I often jumped by mistake by tilting the stick. When you lose it should feel like your fault, not the control scheme's. Expand

In Intrusion you shoot yourIntrusion 2 has all the cards to be a brilliant old-school sidescrolling shooter but falls short in some areas. In Intrusion you shoot your way through levels in veins of Contra (though much easier), killing somewhat nasty bosses in the progress. Yes, sounds good, but then the shooting isn't most comfortable thing in the world, mouse having weird lagging and the character feeling way to floaty for my taste. My biggest issue was that your "bullets" fly so slowly that you just keep on spamming your guns in enemy's general direction and hope it falls down. This did break my experience and lead to quitting in level 6. To put it short: nice try. Expand

    I went into this game with high hopes expecting to be playing a more modern and improved version of an old favourite, Metal Slug. At first theI went into this game with high hopes expecting to be playing a more modern and improved version of an old favourite, Metal Slug. At first the game felt like it was doing well, nice artwork, different weapons, various enemies, but the further into the game I got the more it felt like it was just trying to show of it's physics and rag-doll capabilities.
    Corpses soon went from awesome rag-doll deaths to annoying pick up blockers. The controls started to become even more clunky as the game progressed, the automatic grabbing of ropes when jumping past them got me shot a couple of times whilst trying to dodge attacks.
    Not to mention the wolf riding, sure it looks good on the trailer and in thumbnail art, but when you hop onto one of those things you just wish it would die so you can get back to being a bad-ass with a gun rather than a guy struggling to turn his mount around whilst flying robots shoot at his stationary behind. The wolf controls just felt bad, you become a sitting duck as soon as you hop on one of those things. Okay all be it you can move a lot faster on a wolf, but only if you go straight in one direction and don't have to manoeuvre over around anything like, lets say, a heap of rag-doll corpses... Which of course there are always going to be.
    At first you think it's a game with mechanics that will add a lot to your experience, but they end up taking away the core part of any game, enjoyment.
