Fantastic Diablo-esque Game

This game is phenomenal. WARNING: If you don't like Diablo-esque games and other hack'n'slash with an RPG touch, then stay away from Dark Alliance 2.

However, if you DO like these games, then this is the next game on your greatest hits list.

Co-op MAKES the game, so be sure to have a willing friend nearby. The game certainly took longer than 30 minutes... as suggested by another reviewer (it took me about 9 hours).

Well i just got this game again and played with my friend. For those of you who give this a one because you beat it in 30 minutes (impossible unless you use the area cheat) or say there is only one good character (simply minded fools) then you havent played this game. This is a Hack/Slash game and it is the sequel to B.G I so if you thought that was a bad game stop playing. The story is a vampire is trying to resurrect the onyx tower to use it for evil, i mean why not that makes sense. so through a series of events you meet up with the side who is trying to claim the tower for good. then you end up fighting in another dimension of the world on top of the onyx tower. Pretty much like the first one but there are more people and "some" side quest. Everyone has a person (except Dorin the Barbian) that they can give money to to get XP. then the same person gives them a quest to earn new magic. i like to be the human Barb. since its always fun to go head first into a battle. but i have replayed it several times with each character to see how it is. it takes a little while to get the people with a lot of magic good but once they are there they are GODS. calling down fire with the cleric is always fun. but the best character to start is the one you like the most. although the more magic the person is the less armor they are able to wear ;)

Good for some, but not my cup of tea

If you like repetetive hack n slash dungeon crawls, then this is for you. Not to mention the multiplayer part is pretty fun. But for me, the over the head camera angle type games died after Zelda stopped doing that.

I cant say this is a bad game, its just kinda boring when you just mash the same button over and over all night long.

So end result: If you are an experienced gamer who needs a challenge, dont get this one. If you arnt experienced, or dont care for a challenge, this is for you.

Good graphics and sound.
