You can tell this title had a lot of heart put into it, which is good, considering it took ten years to develop. The pixelated graphics are beautiful and the story/characters are very interesting! There are plenty of cut scenes, but they don't feel jarring, if anything, they add a nice layer to the characters. The gameplay is smooth and I like the twist of carrying the individuals who shoot for you. The levels are fun and differing, albeit, rather unchallenging. Even the boss levels are not incredibly difficult (although they are very well constructed and fair). Don't expect to die frequently or to face multiple attempts at completing a level. I tend to enjoy this game the most when I'm in the mood for a relaxing and forgiving play-through.
