I wish this was about the singing group ABBA, I could find more good things to say about them. Unfortunately this is about the piece of trash we know as Ikari Warriors 2. much like the first game you only have one life and the continue code ?ABBA? This time instead of army men you are now fighting aliens. I?m also happy to announce that now you can?t wall glitch, or at least I didn?t but the game is still crappy, you pick up hearts and weapons but you can?t live long enough to spend the hearts in a shop or use the weapons. I remember this game specifically at my friend Alex?s house back in the day. I use to love it. But I think at the time I was more patient and tactful, now I just run into the hail of bullets. Then again I did have a game genie and I think not dying would make the game more fun. Then you might actually get to use the weapons. The shops are pretty useless. They cost you 2 Hearts to get in and then you can fight something for hearts or buy stuff like armor, etc. Most of the time thought the admission fee took just enough hearts from you that you couldn?t buy what you wanted.

Another great thing about this game is the super long story that comes up if you don?t hit start the moment the title screen comes up. It puts one character up at a time, about as fast as it would take an Atari 2600 to render 1 frame from a final fantasy movie. All the while you can?t get out of it and back to the title screen? It?s shitastic.
