Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Wii finally gets a shoot 'em-up to be proud of with the latest and greatest action adventure from cult Japanese developer Treasure. Never mind about the plot, just enjoy the action as you take on waves of increasingly dangerous, and increasingly bizarre, enemies.

Nobody does boss battles as well as Treasure
Take to the highway for some vehicular monster hunting
Can you get yourself a place on the online leaderboard?
Levels switch styles from 2D to 3D and back again

Aim at the screen with the Wii remote and mow down mutants with your blaster or wait till they get close and use a powerful sword attack. You'll have to dodge all the incoming fire as well too, including taking to the skies with your jetpack/hoverboard.

What makes the game a classic though is the sheer variety of situations and enemies. The boss battles really push the envelope, from one that tries to flatten you with Tetris blocks to another that you end up being handcuffed to as you fight bare-fisted. If you're tired of identikit shooters this is one game you can guarantee will surprise you.

Key Features
  • Hidden Treasure: The Wii's best shoot 'em-up, from the cult developers of classics such as Gunstar Heroes and Ikaruga.
  • Bullet Heaven: Intense shooter action with super slick 60 frames per second graphics, highly varied enemies and backdrops, and gigantic end-of-level bosses.
  • Blasting Buddy: Have a friend join in with a special co-operative mode that adds an extra gun sight to the action for twice the mayhem.
  • Board Games: Test yourself against the best players in the world with an instantly updated online leaderboard for each level.
  • Control Yourself: Multiple control systems let you play the game however you want, with support for the Wii Zapper and the Classic Controller.
About the Developer: Treasure
One of the oldest independent studios in Japan, Treasure are behind such cult classics as Gunstar Heroes, Guardian Heroes, Bangai-O, Ikaruga, Astro Boy: Omega Factor, Gradius V and Sin and Punishment. They specialise in shoot 'em-ups and some of the best end-of-level bosses ever.

Product Description

In Sin and Punishment: Star Successor, take aim and blast your way through a post-apocalyptic world packed with non-stop arcade shooter action. Sin and Punishment: Star Successor is the long-awaited sequel to the Japanese Nintendo 64 cult-classic, delivering an intense, adrenaline-soaked thrill ride that never lets up from start to finish as Isa and Kachi go on the run and on the defensive, shooting everything as a host of enemies tries to hunt them down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint-hearted! 10 May 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, this game is long overdue on the Wii but it was definitely worth the wait! Let me begin by saying that it won't appeal to anyone who doesn't like a challenge! Fortunately, there are three difficulty settings and a two-player co-op mode which provides a degree of help in actually completing the required levels. Each difficulty setting has to be completed before you can access the stage select option in the respective setting. This is where the meat of the gameplay takes place, by getting you to better your scores and entering them into online leaderboards.
This is beautifully designed by the use of a multiplying combo system which increases when you get enemies but decreases 10 times faster when you take a hit yourself! Fortunately, there is an "evade" move which negates any bullet barrages or laser attacks for as long as you are doing the move and believe me, YOU WILL BE DOING IT A LOT! You can choose between two characters who have different firing methods, mostly in the charged-weapon department, to further the lifespan and satisfy the completists' longevity demands.
The settings are truly awesome and well crafted and the animation is top notch too. You will spend most of your early dying times due to distractions from the scenery! Treasure have certainly pulled off a terrific achievement here and hopefully, this game won't disappear without trace due to its now niche market compared to years ago when this sort of fare was gobbled up gratefully. I hope to see many of you reading this on the leaderboards in the future, so if you like your games with a lot of replay value over actual completion time ( 6 hours or so ), then give this a go by all means. It's already getting reviews in the 9/10 range, so rest assured, it's not just my opinion!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT GAME BUT VERY TOUGH !! 14 Aug 2010
By decoded
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you enjoyed Space Harrier and Rez then this is the game for you!

You basically control a flying character and have to shoot as many enemies as you can on screen without getting hit. This increases your multiplier which increases your score dramatically. As soon as you take a hit your multiplier drops. In the long levels you fight about 4 sub-bosses then a big one at the end.

There are only 7 levels but each level is divided into different parts so they are quite long. Don't worry if you die you can continue but you'll have to start again with your score. Scores are saved and can be entered on an online leaderboard which is quite fun!

Soon as you get to level 3 things get very tough and you'll have to use maximum concentration if you want to succeed. Button bashing will get you no where!

Graphics are very good for a Wii and even though the game is on rails it's very addicitive and enjoyable to play. You'll just want to keep having another go to either beat your high scores or just get past that annoying boss.

For the money this is an absolute bargain and you can always rely on Tresure to make great games!

4.0 out of 5 stars More anti-dolphin propaganda from the Japanese 29 Jun 2010
By possessed.by.a.lemon TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're unaware that Successor of the Skies is a sequel to a cult classic N64 game from one of gaming's most acclaimed developers, you're in for some terrible first impressions. Even by Wii standards the graphics are the wrong side of PS2 launch title, a hazy, jagged lo-fi mess. You even start off worrying about the art direction. The two characters you play as are about as nondescript a pair of anime kids as you're ever likely to want to punch. And the voice acting? Good grief, do yourself a favour and go Japanese in the options; you'll still get subtitles, but you may be better off making up your own attempt at a script as you go along anyway.

Let's try to forget about the lazy front end, then, the bland menus, the poor sound and the terrible cutscenes that do their best to turn you away from the game, this review needs an enema in the shape of gameplay. Oh, gameplay! Now we can start piling on the stars! Successor of the Skies not only delivers as a sequel to one of Treasure's greats, it also provides us with one of the ultimate Wii experiences. It's an arcade shooter of the highest quality that works perfectly with the Zapper peripheral - and no less so with the remote/nunchuck or classic controller.

So you shoot things. You shoot lots of things. You shoot things that you don't want me to describe to you in this review because it will spoil it. (OK, just so my title makes some kind of sense, there are dolphins. There I said it. Although god help me if I can actually make sense of the dolphins being in the game in the first place.) Suffice it to say, the scale and design of some of the bosses will have you forgiving those otherwise disappointing graphics. And there are difficulty levels that allow everyone to see the game through before getting pummelled on a second run.

I've never really tried on the rails gaming before, but what a great game to start off with. This is absolutely exhilarating without a second spared in giving the player endless action. And its not just the action that is impressive, but the variety. One minute you'll be shooting monsters in a forest, the next going down a underwater tunnel fighting sea monsters, to Mad Max style driving sections. Every possible variation of a shooter is here and fully realised beautifully. At every checkpoint I actually felt out of breathe given the crazy amount of action taking place of screen.

You can use all types of controllers, but I found the Wii remote and nunchuk worked brilliantly. It may be on the short side, but at under a tenner and endless replay value this is still an absolute must.

Another example of the insane amount of hidden gems the Wii had for proper gamers.
