Review

Last blade 2 is a game of godlike proportions. It's a wonderful game with smooth animation, beautiful backgrounds, detailed combos, 14 characters (18 with codes), wonderful sound and music... basically everything you could ever want. Like last blade 1, this is a weapon based fighter with 2 modes of play: speed and power. In speed mode you can link most of your moves together into combos and in power mode your attacks are wicked but you cant link them. There is also a cool deflect option instead of JUST a block like in most games. In this game you can block and deflect. Deflecting is hard to do but if you press the deflect key at just the right time you swing your weapon at your opponents and knock them back and leave them open for an attack.

There are tons of specials for each character, including desperation specials, desperation attacks, super cancels and super desperation moves. There is also another mode of play which wasn't in the first Last Blade, called EX mode. Its where your attacks are ALMOST as strong as power mode and you can link ALMOST as many moves as you can in speed mode, but you take much more damage when you are attacked.

There's also this wicked cool guy in Last Blade 2. Hes a new character that was not in last blade 1. He's this big guy with a black or red outfit (depending on which mode you choose, speed or power) and hes got a long black sword.

Anyway this is a great game, one of my favorites, but I still think that the original is better, don't ask me why I just think it is...
