I felt compelled to write this review right after finishing this second Rosenkreuzstilette game as i was greatly impressed by the high level of care and polish that went in creating this game.
The gameplay structure of this sequel is the same as the one seen in the first game:action platform in the style of M*ga man,this of course includes the acquisition of a the power up after defeating the bosses that await at the end of each level and the possibility to play as an alternate character armed with sword and capable of wall jumps and dashes,if the right combination of buttons is pressed in the starting screen of the game.
The graphics are very well done,with gorgeous environments,cute chibi character\bosses and a good variety of enemies in each level.
The sound is excellent as well,the tracks of this game greatly add to the already impressive graphics of the levels giving each one a unique and immersive atmosphere,also the themes of the bosses do a great job in setting the mood for the epic battle that will unfold.
The game features two modes,arcade and story,the former being equal to the latter except for the fact it lacks the cutscene and dialogues through the which the game's story is narrated and all the levels feature an interesting gameplay twist,water currents,traps/enemies hidden behind walls,lasers,flammable liquid that is ignited on contact by certain enemies,ecc.
Final judgement:the awesome bosses,graphics and gameplay make this game one of the best M*ga man inspired games to be found in both eastern and western markets,also i want to to point out how this game surpasses by far the first installment,as any good sequel should,so,although i loved the first game as well and the reviews other users wrote about it are a testament to it's high level of quality,this one improves upon it immensely.
PS:i'm not from an English speaking country so my English may not be perfect.

Despite a severe lack of time,i absolutely wanted to write this review to recommend Steel Strider to all the fans of arcade action games.

In this game you control a mech and fight your way through hordes of enemies and mid level bosses until you reach a gigantic final boss of the level and defeat it.

The beauty of Steel Strider is in how every aspect of this simple premise is refined and polished to a mirror,the various environments you fight in are very inspired and it's easy to see that great care has been put into their creation, each with a mid level and a final boss.

Tthe great number of different enemies is also a testament to the quality of the game and it gives the player the impression that each one of the locations he fights in is defended by it's own unique army of mechs.

Also the bosses,as one would expect from this kind of game,are all gigantic and very original in design and the player mech will find scattered through the various battlefields seven different weapons,each with three levels of upgrade that will be added to it's starting pistol and beam sword.

I want to say that this is easily one of the top five non hentai action games of dlsite and also i wanna mention that since the aiming system of this game uses the mouse (the player mech moves and jumps via keyboard),people that don't have a gaming pad will be able to enjoy this game to the fullest.

Lastly I advise players to set the game's resolution to 1024x768 in the option menu for best graphical quality when playing.

By the way,english is not my native language,i hope this review doesn't show it too much.

I actually only needed the boy set from this series, but I knew I would eventually come up with some reason I had to have the girl's collection too. So I decided to save myself a buck and a half and bought the two sets together in this handy little bundle.

So glad that I did! The boys' models were done beautifully, but they lacked much in the way of costuming accessories. The ladies' set had no such problem! It quickly became my favorite, even just as a handy reference or for general inspiration.

Seriously, if you are at all interested in game or character design, it's not going to hurt you to pick this set up. I've learned a lot just from seeing how they put these over-sized sprites together! It's really helped me organize my own character models.

I really enjoyed this set! It had a good range of basic character builds to work from and a lot of different styles of clothes when compared to the working dude's collection of suits, suits, and more suits. (Though I will admit, they are very well drawn suits, and I will probably pick up that set too at some point.)

The lines are clean and the coloring technique happens to blend really well with my own, so it saves me a lot of time over drawing all of my supporting characters from the ground up. Even just leafing through it for inspiration has been a huge help when I'm stuck on a particular design. If you are interested in game making or character design at all, you really can't go wrong picking this up -- especially at this price!

Each and every one of the qualities that made the first volume great are present in this second one and every single aspect of this work represents a significant improvement over the first work,the visuals of characters,vehicles and locations are more detailed and polished,the action is intense,the few instances of fanservice are very refined and this second book features nearly twice the number of pages of the first book,for all of these reasons i can say without any doubt that this non hentai doujin work is easily on par with renowned titles like shing*ki no ky*jin.

PROS
-Excellent art design,both the locations and characters look great making each page really great to look at,the 2048x1536 resolution of the pages also contributes.
-For just four dollars you get the first volume(144 pages) of an epic saga.
-The action is sequences are very good and even though the tank girl is very strong,she often has to use great caution when facing some of her foes and the strategies that her and the officer guy are vital to their survival as it's clear that even a single mistake can cost the duo their lives rarely leaves a battle unscathed,all these things contribute to make each skirmish in the story very realistic,even though the protagonist of this story is a huge anthropomorphic tank.
-There's a tiny bit of fanservice for those who like that sort of thing,but if that's what you're looking for i suggest you look elsewhere as this is a plot driven work and it's story is a pretty serious one at that.
-Without giving too much spoiler,i can say that the story is pretty good and the characters and setting do a pretty good job at drawing in the reader.
-The protagonists are an enormous tank girl and a normal human officer,so fans of the giantess genre will love this work.
CONS
The titular antropomorphic tank does the military salute every time she talks to a character and that happens so often it's funny,but maybe that's an actual military thing,i have no idea,even after reading it multiple times,that's the only flaw i can think of though.

In conclusion this work is awesome and i recommend it to everyone.

I played the trial/free version, which unlocks all of Matsumoto's route, and liked it enough to buy the full version. Each route was independent of each other, which I liked, but they were too short; the writing could be expanded, though all the mysteries were clarified and answered.

System is excellent; you can comment on your save files, Tweet from the game, and adjust the volume levels for every character (which I had to make use of, since several characters were more quiet than others). I was comfortable with the art style, though some CGs were better than others. Soundtrack is excellent and fit all the scenes. The voices were actually quite good, and having the heroine voiced was a major plus for me.

Love the sound of the boy! The voice is very clear, no disturbing noise to be heard. Besides that, the voice sounds very boyish and cute. It's like a real boy voice. There are many voice available inside this voice pack for different situations, such as: system voice (save / exit)and fight voice (attack, magic). For 100 yen this is a real bargain and I'd recommend this to anyone making an RPG game :)

Bought this and really satisfied with the quality! With just $11, you get to have 5 characters with different build and each character can be customized (hair, clothes, eyes). The only thing lacking is perhaps the ability to change the color of skin, but the other redeeming quality overcomes its weakness.

I'd recommend this product to anyone who wants to make RPG game or VN with RPG/fantasy element.

I picked the full version of this game up on recommendation, and I've been delighted with the graphics, voice & sound work so far. Well worth the price!
The storyline I'm following now has had some surprisingly comedic moments courtesy of the player character Sienna, but I know there will be more mystery and dark secrets to uncover soon.
*The demo and full versions work well sound & graphics-wise in Windows 7 (emulated in Parallels 6 on a Mac running 10.6.8).
