Azure Striker Gunvolt (3DS downloadable) GS Review: 8/10

THE GOOD
An inventive take on classic side-scrolling action.
Attractive 2D visuals.
Plenty of sub-missions to tackle.
An array of unlockable skills equipment keep the gameplay fresh over time.
THE BAD
The main campaign comes to an end too soon.
---------------------------
Looks like another retro style throwback in the way of old school Mega Man. Getting pretty good reviews so far, even though it came out of nowhere. Looks interesting. Your thoughts, SW?

Looks quite good. The only thing keeping me from buying this game is that it would be locked to my 3DS and not my account. I really hope Nintendo changes that in the near future.

It being too easy was my one concern, but I still want it. Just being able to dash jump again makes me want to play it.

Looks pretty cool, definitely worth checking.

Is this the one with a free copy of Mighty Gunvolt? I'll probably get it soon.

Totally buying it. I saw the trailer perhaps a few months ago and fell in love with it. Looking forward to it.

Cool, how much is it? Better not be $15. The Fall on Wii U was only $10.

Nice, i'm fine with 15. I'll be picking this up since i love megaman. I knew this was coming like Mighty Nº 9, but didn't know it was so soon. Lost track of it.

But great stuff. Thanks for the info

I'll put it on my Wish List and see if it gets a sale in near future, Nintendo has been good of cycling things through the deals section in a timely fashion so I'll keep my eye out for it.

I saw Giantbomb play it, and I was intrigued. I need something to play on my 3DS, and this should do just fine.

Yep, but you have to buy it before Nov. 28 to get Mighty for free, plenty of time. Gonna get the game tomorrow, good way to start Labor Day weekend.

I want it, but...it's a downloadable 3DS game so that's shit.

I like downloadable games. I do not like downloadable games on Nintendo platforms. Hopefully it makes the smart move to PS4 at some point with some upgrades.
