Review of Luminous Avenger iX 2 – Dashed to Bits

Copen is added to the list in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is a hit in the series. I am a big fan of Mega Man X / Zero game, but the first game Gunvolt Doesn’t do much for me. I appreciate it, but the dart-shocked enemy doesn’t hit the high notes brought by the game it tries with apes. However, with the sequel, Copen lunging at enemies and zooming across the screen added a lot to the gameplay. Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2Copen’s second solo game, which may not yet touch the classics, but the addition of a melee attack coupled with the still enjoyable mass gameplay makes it a brief but enjoyable 2D walk. .

The plot of Luminous Avengers iX 2like the conspiracy of all Gunvolt game, quite difficult to take seriously. For the first time, the series is dubbed in English, and what more can I say! However, the story seems almost like a complete throwaway. After the events of the first game, Copen, Kohaku, and Lola were just hanging around, when they were suddenly transported to another world. This world is ruled by an AI called Mother, who is protecting this place for the final return of humans.

Nothing really remarkable happens in the story. Copen must unlock portals to explore the area, and there are cyborgs with the necessary keys to do so. Therefore, Copen fights these cyborgs to collect the key. He also gains weapons after defeating them, as well as the Galactic Law. There’s not much plot here, but the plot is perfunctory, even if the translation and dub are of good quality. That’s an excuse for Copen to fight the robot without stepping on it Gunvolt story. It really doesn’t matter. Friend will However, the game’s difficulty mode must be overcome to get the best ending.

Start the match

You’ll probably want to play that difficulty mode too, because Luminous Avenger iX 2 To be easily. The levels are littered with lots of checkpoints, plus Lola can heal Copen as often as you want. At any time, you can open the skill menu and press heal. So the game is almost never difficult beyond a few points. One of them is the boss fight, where the boss special can sometimes shoot you one shot, also there is a hole in the middle of the arena that will kill you if you fall in.

Another surprising spike in difficulty comes after the necessary “fight all bosses” level, where you have to take a leap of faith on breakable platforms after hitting defeat the final boss of the area. If you die here, and you probably will until you figure out how to do it you will have to fight that boss again. But the bosses are very permissive so this is not a big deal. It To be However, annoying and a lot is the low point of the game.

Despite the lack of danger, however, I had a good time playing the game. After all, this is an Inti Creates game; it is punctuated by captivating chunky lines and extremely responsive character movements. Copen’s dash feels as gratifying and immediate as they are, and the level design, although a bit bland at times, gets the job done. Luminous Avenger iX 2 It will take about two and a half to three hours for most players, so its duration is in line with other games. That being said, like last time, there are no quests, leaving the player with less to do. Powerups are also purchased simply with currency and do not require crafting.

You know the score

Of course, every level ranks you at the bottom. Many players will want to get to those S ranks, and that’s where Luminous Avenger iX 2The Challenge of Lies – the game doesn’t just give you high rankings. If you play a normal mission, you’ll probably get a B most of the time. Higher scores are obtained through faster completion times (giving a score multiplier), killing enemies and finding golden symbols throughout the levels. Each level has four icons, and returning to levels to hunt them down will also lengthen the gameplay a bit.

Then there’s the difficulty mode, which serious players will all want to complete, so saying there’s only a few hours of gameplay here wouldn’t be easy. If you care enough to buy this game at launch, you won’t just want to do a casual run and then ignore it, I’d wager. As Luminous Avenger iX 2 is “NOT A MEGA MAN! IT HAS A MOHAWK UND A VHEELCHAIR! ” game, the unlockable weapons are also worth mentioning. The EX skills here are pretty much what you would expect from the series. Some of them are extremely useful and some of them are mostly useless, even when deployed against a skill weak boss.

For example, a hood grants Copen an increasing propeller attack, which is useful for not only easily taking down enemies from above, but also for a little extra vertical mobility. I almost always equip it. Another skill is a shotgun that fires automatically until it runs out of ammo. The boss I mentioned with the dangerous task force is weak to that one, although it’s quite difficult to hit them with it. I just chose to use Copen’s trusty dash and shoot to deal most of the damage.

I saw it coming

Of course, I have to mention Copen’s new saw blade melee attack. Rushing into enemies will still trap you in them, so you can shoot them afterwards just like before. But the saw blade makes Copen feel much better Mega Man Xof Zero than ever. Holding the button will see him deploy the hacksaw as long as it’s held, but you can chain it into a combo to nicely chop enemies. It feels like a ballpark like the Z-Sabre, but it’s different enough that I can enjoy it in its own way.

Luminous Avenger iX 2 won’t set anyone’s world on fire. It’s short, easy (at least casually), and very familiar. But if you like other games, Copen’s second venture offers much more. It’s another classic block “certainly not Mega Man X“Good I’m pretty happy with the boom every few years. Inti Creates still has a lot of ability to deliver on that front. Now we have Gunvolt 3, with the third character, to eagerly look forward to. Bring it in.
