Great on-rails shooter for wii
on 4 March 2013
Sin and Punishment is an epic on-rails shooter for the wii. It's also quite a challenging one too.
The gameplay is fanastic. The wii was made of games like this. You aim the pointer at the screen and shoot. But because you have a third person view of your character, you have to also dodge incoming enemies and bullets, making the game even more engaging. Most of the time, you will not stop shooting...there are just so many enemies/ things to shoot and obstacles to avoid. You can even melee attack missiles/bombs back at the enemy for increased damage.
The boss battles are one of the truly amazing aspects of this game. Each boss has their own weakness and a specific way to deal huge damage to them. You can just opt to shoot them repeatedly and hope you survive long enough to take them down, but this only works in the easier difficulties. In the harder difficulties, you really need to fine-tune your shooting and movement skills to keep up and survive the game...the difficulty is akin to a slightly easier Ikaruga...or least that's what it feels like to me.
There are 2 characters in game, with slightly different gameplay and story...but essentially, most things are the same. The graphics are nice, the music fits. Overall it is an awesome game. My only critique would be that the storyline and voice acting are a little stereotypical and sometimes just annoying, but this barely matters for most of the game.
Definitely worth picking up if you love wii shooters.
