Aero Fighters 2 (Neo Geo AES / MVS review)

Developer: Video System
Publisher: SNK
Released: 1994

Aero Fighters 2 is a vertically-scrolling shooter and the follow-up to the 1992 Arcade original.

+ While the game is short, the eight playable characters have unique abilities to add some longevity.

+ The difficulty curve is fair and being able to destroy some enemy projectiles helps to even the playing field.

+ If you lose a life there's always an opportunity to quickly power back up and give yourself a fighting chance.

+ The boss battles are all expertly designed with some of the multi-part fights being particular highlights.

+ The stage backdrops are a sight to behold and the amount of detail (especially in the nighttime Paris level) is stunning.

- No rapid fire option, so you'll have to continually tap the A button throughout all ten stages which is tiresome.

- Slowdown is rampant and you'll often die when the game abruptly speeds up while you're trying to avoid bullets.
