I had a wonderful time with Sin & Punishment, although the story was not the greatest, the dialog was not the most polished and I'd even say the main character design was a bit awkward looking. None of those issues can take away anything from the solid game play I experienced. The game is not loaded with power ups or much other distractions just you, a gun, and your enemy. Sin & Punishment resurrects the almost forgotten Panzer Dragon Orta style of game play, tweaks it up and rarely does the action get old.

IF there was one word to describe this game it would be intense. You have no time to blink. Yes, the game is short, but if you're getting it from gamefly I don't see why there should be a complaint. It's not like you're paying full price. The last stage is definitely the most intense one. You should start this game on easy. It is extremely difficult. I like to enjoy my games not throw my controller across the room. If you play it on anything highter you will probably throw it. The boss battles were something else and there's a lot of them. Anyone should enjoy this game. Just try it out for yourself.
Today I went to the store to pick up Sin & Punishment : Star Successor. So far I have played 3 stages out of 7. Those 3 stages were enough to satisfy me to write a review on this game. It took me about 1 Hour and 30 minutes to complete these stages. There is so much action in this game there is no time to think what your next move is. You kill things from giant robots to giant birds. You start off in a spaceship, and soon your under the sea of Japan. After every stage you have the option to update your score on wifi. There is tons of side bosses and big bosses. the controls are Very simple. You only have 2 moves to choose from. Shooting your gun and swiping your sword. And thats all you need. I personally proffer the Wii Classic controller for a game like this. It is extremely hard to use the wii mote and nunchuck. This game is just to crazy for those controls. I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys shooting games. This game is one of the best wii games out hands down. The only problem i found was in the multiplayer mode. Instead of having 2 characters on screen, p2 only gets a set of crosshairs. Otherwise, this game is badass. It was worth every penny i paid for it. I hope this review was helpful.
