In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

What do these ratings mean?

Needs a transfusion.

       We, as gamers, are fairly docile creatures. We don't normally release our killer instict onto others (unless they take the last Mountain Dew, that is), so when Hudson's Bloody Roar 2 found me I got excited. I was hoping for a game that lets me unleash my animal personality onto my competitors. That's what I got, but not much else.

       First off, the game starts you out with a roughly 30 second intro. What does this intro contain you ask? Nothing but a bunch of fight scenes being played. They could have at least given us some FMV in it but no, all we get is a polygonal leopard tearing a wolf's face off.

        But I didn't come for the intro movie, I came for the fighting. And that's what I got. And a whole lot to boot. In the game, you control one of ten fighters who, once they've got enough beast-juice, turn into bipedal animals that range from a ninja mole to a Kung Fu tiger. The fighting is pure, mindless, violent fun, but that's all. A little more strategy could have benifited this game.

        The fighting takes place in, you guessed it, a square ring. With, you guessed it, no animation. Drab, drab, drab.

        Like most games of the fighting genre BR2 features a freaky story involving a terrorist organization, an evil scientific company, and another group of human/animal weirdos who try to fight them off. It's a little weird at best, but no one really cares anyway.

       Where Bloody Roar succeeded due to it's new concept (the animal thing), Bloody Roar 2 barely escapes mediocry with it's great fighting. I suggest buying it if you really liked the first game but if not, just rent it. And if your not a fighter fan just leave this one at the pound.
