This game was a thrill to play. A little difficult to beat the bosses but what is a good game without a challenge.

Horrible

1 word for this game. Stupid!

Anyone who with a brain on mechanics of a game, should easily know how much this game blows. the only thing that was better from the last game is the graphics, which, i can guarantee you is NOT that much better. the other thing is, its game mechanics are EXACTLY the same as the one from the original xbox. storyline hasnt exactly improved much, either, i literally have no idea whats going on, but it looks exactly like the storyline of the last game... something stupid about demons...

the fighting system is horribly flawed, ryu cant protect himself against more then one enemy at all, people will grab you randomly even though you attacked them first, clearly. Also, i discovered, your biggest, most lethal enemy, is... bats. yes, thats right, bats... ryu cant attack or defend at all against bats, no matter how much you hold down the block button, no matter how crazy you get with ANY of your weapons. if you are faced with alot of bats, your pretty much (blank).

for the xbox original, this would be a great game. but lets face it people, this is the 360. you sorta expect.... improvements. counter attacks sorta suck to, but after all the flaws ive had to deal with in this game so far, its not worth mastering... or even caring about.

theyve taken a classic well loved game, and thrown it to the (blank). I dont believe, for one second, they actually TRIED to make a good game, with this title. It looks like they just copied and paste alot of the material. yes, copy and paste. the loading icon on the bottom right is EXACTLY the same as alot of other things that are very similar. The opening to the game starts off with a camera moving through a storm in an ocean... just like the xbox original one. which, looks alil better then the first one... but i think thats because its HD, not better game graphics. (also the game is needlessly difficult, even on easy mode)

anyone claiming to love this game, clearly has no brain, and can go royally (blank) themself...

Weak

Poor Design

An okay fighter that is ruined by cheap tactics and poor design. You will take so much damage from cheap shots you have have no way to avoid, usually from enemies hiding off camera or taking potshots from afar. The camera is sluggish and cumbersome and the enemies seem to know this because more often than not they will wait for you at the tops of stairs and jump you before you can even see anything! The controls can feel clunky as well and I never felt fully in control of Ryu, falling and missing jumps/attacks as a result. Finally even on the easy difficulty the enemies sometimes felt really cheap and some bosses absolutely ridiculous and not in a good way.

I really wanted to like this game (and the series in general) but it just feels sloppy and not fun.
