    "SHOCK TROOPERS 2nd Squad" is a military action game released by SNK in 1998.

    Four mercenaries have risen up to thwart the ambitions of a massive corporation. In addition to a main attack, weapon, and jump abilities, vehicles have also been added to the gameplay, which together with branching paths give the player the ultimate freedom in choosing how they will take on stages.

    The "ACA NEOGEO" series has faithfully reproduced many classic NEOGEO masterpieces.

    Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores.

    Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games.

    2nd Squad takes some things away from the first Shock Troopers, but adds some elements of its own. The result is a game that’s either better or worse, depending on your own personal taste. Regardless of that, both games are underrated shooters that are packed with action, and instead of choosing between them, fans of old-school run ‘n’ gun games should really consider adding both to their Switch library.

    Shock Troopers: 2nd Squad is a huge disappointment when compared to its excellent predecessor. On its own, it is a decent but forgettableShock Troopers: 2nd Squad is a huge disappointment when compared to its excellent predecessor. On its own, it is a decent but forgettable top-down run-and-gun action game, overloaded with pre-rendered 3-D style sprites and backgrounds, a la Donkey Kong Country or Killer Instinct. The look is very dated and has not aged well, along with the straightforward soundtrack. Play the superior first game in the series instead. Expand
