News: Sin and Punishment Star Successor first impressions
I hate the Wii-mote and that shouldn't be a secret anymore. I know you can use the classic controller to play this game, but what really works better?
When I first sat do to play Sin and Punishment Star Successor (SPSS) I tried the game with the classic controller. I wouldn't even buy it unless I knew for sure I could use the classic controller. Through all of the smoke and mirrors, I did not observe that the co-op gameplay is nothing more than player 2 pointing only the Wii-mote at the screen with an automatic fire. So I felt a little mislead and a lot stupid after this discovery, because I intended to play with a friend.Guess what, didn't matter. When I did play that first time I was by myself. After I shuffled through the settings and tried to understand everything, I started up the first mission. The "training" mission. In and out pwn the trianing missions boss. After a short and pretty cool cutscene - the game has great graphics for the Wii - the action moves seamlessly into the next mission. I didn't even realize that I was supposed to start shooting right away. Enter FNJimmy for some 2 player SPSS action. I let Jimmy learn how to play by doing the training mission. I took a shit. I came back out to see how he was doing. Then to my horror, I watch FNJimmy die during the training mission. Jesus Christ. It's the training mission Jimmy! I grabbed the second player Wii-mote and jumped into help Jimmy. I had to explain everything, even though I'm sure the training mission just showed him how to do the moves. We beat the second and third boss that night and Jimmy only died 3 times while playing the other missions. Not bad. The game is cool and I found myself just starring at the screen trying to shoot everything and keep up with the action. The co-op is great, but it works. I think both players can get the good feeling of a shooter here. It's fun. More to come on SPSS.
Don't be a Jimmy!
