Very Good

Better than the first

This game is really fun, and although it doesn't have the best graphics or best story, it's great at what it does. This is a game kind of like the God of war games in that you can pick it up for half an hour and cause mayhem, such as destroying a town or killing cute fuzzy animals. Or, as I have done, you can hop on for a couple hours and experience the diverse scenery and game play elements to discover. Whatever you do, this game is sure to entertain, and with multi-player Online and off, there's plenty to keep you entertained.

No co-op Story mode

The game itself was fairly interesting. Nothing unique really from the 1st adventure except some new abilities. I was disappointed to find out that there was no co-op story mode, only little mini-games. If you are looking for a game that you can quickly pick up and play without a lot of involvement this is it.

Too frustrating to finish

Whomever thought of putting the control of your minions and the camera on the same button should be shot. You can get through most of the game without this being too bad, but the final fight was just too much. And whenever this bad gameplay mechanic forces you to die (which it will), you will have to start the fight over from the start.

The voice acting was the best quality of this game, it was suprisingly well done. I enjoyed the script as well. Those two qualities are was caused me to rent and play through as much of the game as possible. The bad gameplay design was overall too much for me to fully enjoy the game.
