Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition Review (WIIU)

Run-and-Gun games are a classic staple of gaming. From Contra to Metal Slug, the games have been a crucial part of gaming and one of the most influential genres. So when Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition was announced for Wii U, I became excited at the chance to play a new game like that for Wii U. But was it any good? Well, that is a matter of debate….but I would argue that it very much is a good game.

The game plays very similarly to other Run-And-Gun games but it also goes back to a classic pixelated art style. This art style helps the game stand out with a unique look which can draw in more players. The music is okay and while not the best, it does do its part to help capture that retro feel for the game. The music and art combined work great to create that classic feel and the audio effects and visual effects beyond are a step above other Retraux games in this style.

The gameplay in this is fantastic and insane in many ways. The bosses are over the top, the levels are well made to create a sense of intensity and a feeling that everything will continue to be topped as you progress. Some of these bosses have to be seen to be believed. The game is no cakewalk but once you beat it, you can unlock a hard mode which takes things to the next level of intensity. The game takes the right influences from retro games and the right ideas from modern games. It is a fun Run-and-Gun game that is very much worth your time to check out and play. It is not very expensive and can give you quite a bit of enjoyment. So all in all, I must recommend this game and suggest you do try it out.
