Review: Blaster Master Zero 2

March 28, 2019 1 min read

As a kid, I never owned Blaster Master. My only experience with it was watching my friend's dad play it one night. It looked far too complicated for me to grasp, so I put it out of my mind and never thought about it again. Flash forward to 2017 and the launch of the Switch, Blaster Master Zero was released and I thought it looked neat. I love retro revivals, so I figured I would take a chance with Inti Creates' reboot.

Once that music started, I was immediately taken back to that night in my friend's den. It’s funny how effective certain things can be in our lives, but the music from Blaster Master reawakened that memory in me. I sat there and plowed through Zero in nearly one sitting, being utterly captivated by how faithful it was to its NES roots.

That’s not to say I didn't have some complaints, but I thought Zero was a solid start to a potential new series. Having now finished Zero 2, I'm convinced this will be a series that sticks around for a long time.
