    Windjammers 2 is definitely a worthwhile game and it's a lot of fun. As I went along in the game my Windjammer playing skills improved. I didn't give up because the game does bring the satisfaction of playing a retro style sports and action arcade game that we all might have loved in days gone by. After mastering all of the tactics and game moves the option to go on line and play against extremely experienced human players is there and it should be taken advantage of. With that said, we wholeheartedly endorse the new Windjammers 2 game and give it a two thumbs up rating. Windjammers was worth the money and game playing effort some twenty seven odd years ago in 1994 and its just as viable and fun to play today in 2022.

    Windjammers 2 is an excellent title that manages to hit the target in full, realizing what it proposes: to be the sequel that Windjammers has never had, taking back its playability and joy. Incredible how the developers have managed to not sacrifice anything of the nature of the game, while improving it in every aspect. Need some more content? Perhaps, but already in this way we guarantee that you will struggle to detach yourself, especially if you have someone to play with, offline or online.

    Windjammers 2 also cements Dotemu's position as the premier upholder of exquisite and sympathetic sequels to discarded classics. A triumph. [Issue#368, p.118]

    The game is excellent in terms of gameplay mechanics, graphics, and music. Unfortunately, there isn't much variety anywhere else to warrant a higher score. This game knows that it's essentially here for versus matches and as such, will only be engaging for players who are going to play against each other locally or online.

    Windjammers 2 is the logical continuation of the episode released in 1994: new characters, new mechanics and online ranked games, it comes out with all the advantages expected of such a title in 2022. in easy hand does not close the door to neophytes while the added moves constitute an additional strategic layer for amateurs of high level game. That said, it must be recognized that the title of Dotemu is sorely lacking in content and that it will hardly hook solo players in the long term.

    Deep, attractive, and highly playable, Windjammers 2 is still missing some of what it needs to really shine. Plus the online is currently on the fritz.

    Windjammers 2 feels more like a "more of the same" than it should.

    I felt through this masterpiece the developer's passionate love for the heritage of the original title. Windjammers 2 is something everybodyI felt through this masterpiece the developer's passionate love for the heritage of the original title. Windjammers 2 is something everybody has to play at least one time. The unique vibe of its universe, the well-balanced learning curve easily could make it the best fighting game you ever played. The new maps had designed with a lot of creativity and the new gameplay mechanisms help you not to be frustrated even on the Clay map. I had the fear three new buttons will push this game towards too much complexity but now I feel these things are needed to feel I play the same game but with so much fresh blood in it. The original game was fast-paced but this one is rolling lightspeed. The comix-like art is fantastic and timeless. Casino, 4 point floor, and Hurricane Max are my favorite new experiences. More stories or backgrounds for these fantastic characters could be good DLC content. Expand

    Çizimler güzel. Karakterlerin hareket şemaları iyi. Kontroller kanser edebiliyor. Bir şans verin.

    Having played the original windjammers on NeoGeo decades ago, I thought I'd try my hand at this and sure its faithful to the original, butHaving played the original windjammers on NeoGeo decades ago, I thought I'd try my hand at this and sure its faithful to the original, but also just more of the same with some overpowered moves that make or break the game which provides a tough challenge even on easy modes without a lot of practice and being one or two steps ahead of your opponent, it would be nice but as for mentioned some moves are just vastly overpowered and occasionally glitches out usually not in your favor.

    Unless you know exactly how to play the game, the movesets etc of your character the flow of arcade mode literally follows exactly how it would in the arcades with the AI being lazy on one round and then practically unbeatable the next forcing you to use up one of your two credits, then the next round being easy once again...unfortunately predictable, it's fine for a quick round or two here and there, but don't expect to get too much play out of it.
