Enjoying this game thus far. Differences from the first are subtle gameplay wise from a control standpoint. The combat feels smoother and you don't feel locked down to some animations at times like the first. And maybe your ability to chain combos is more expanded within moves. Of course the new weapons are nice too.

As far as the story, the cutscenes are nice and Shank being Shank in them as that just means tearing stuff up.lol. He's ripping open sharks mouths and slicing choppers in half with chainsaws. Their are more players you can play with in this game also. The enemies are pretty ridiculous too, i fought a amazon chick that actually had powers. To top it off she is wearing what might as well be a bikini with a cape on.lol. Flying around/teleporting and using lightning. Im on the seventh stage right now and i have not touched survival mode yet either but im liking it. Its an improvement over the first which i liked too. Fun little beat em up for 9.99.

Yes, i have good time wih the game as well. Everything feels much smoother and the levels are more varied. They pretty much fixed the problems of first game.
Shame there is no co-op campaign like previous game tho. But then again - can't complain, when the game costs 800MSP, plus there is online/local survival arenas this time. :)

    alimokrane and that supposedly XO screenshot is clearly missing all the effects present in the other screen for PS4 (7 minutes ago)

    alimokrane @Moonwalker: the game is apparently a mess in both consoles, hence the delay... (8 minutes ago)

    Megido Well teh second screenshot there looks like it just has ambient lighting, so probably not the case in the full version. (16 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker this: [url] i just hope this has to do with optimizations though, sjeesh. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker while X1 version has this weird blur effect over it, doesn't look nearly as crisp. But not just that, check out that Chocobo racing pic, good lord. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker As the thread shows, the differences between the two console versions are very clear, a bit too clear. I've yet to see another multiplatform game where the difference is this big. PS4 looks crisp, (1 Hour ago)
