    Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype is a rather classic shooter, which bases its appeal on those elements that fans of the genre know better: upgradeable weapons, huge bosses, nice levels and a large number of enemies who do nothing but shoot at us. Though its solid gameplay, however, Final Prototype lacks of original ideas and it's way too short.

    In an age when the surviving champions of the genre seem intent on sticking to the template of manic vertical scrollers with ludicrously baroque game design, Soldner-X 2 offers a fairly satisfying alternative: a horizontal scroller with a classic flavour that doesn't feel out of date. [Aug 2010, p.115]
  3. Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype is certainly a well-packed shooter. The mix of old-school gameplay and terrific HD graphics are again a good choice. Easier than its prequel (and that's ok), it seriously lacks in longevity.

    It's certainly good fun while it lasts. [Issue#195, p.103]
  5. As far as shooters are concerned, Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype is very pick-up-and-play friendly.
  6. Like Craig David covering Marvin Gaye, Söldner X-2 makes you pine for the real deal.

    Un très bon shoot'em up en sidescroll !
    La replay value est importante, avec ses challenges et ses clés à trouver.
    La difficulté est bien

    La replay value est importante, avec ses challenges et ses clés à trouver.
    La difficulté est bien dosée, et il est très beau !
    La musique électro colle bien au jeu, et l’expérience seul comme en co-op locale à deux est super !
    Pour ma part, ce fût une excellente trouvaille, et je reviens régulièrement dessus, même 6 ans plus tard ... :)
    A recommander aux amateurs du genre !
