Review by Tom Allen
2 Stars out of 4

The original Bloody Roar was a refreshing change from the onslaught of fighting glook available on the market, but Bloody Roar II does not live up to that initial success. The battle arenas are some of the most bland settings we've ever seen in the genre. You might as well fight in front of a solid gray wall. The character animation is impressive, but the characters themselves are not much fun. We don't know why. As in the original, you can morph into an animal during the battle, but only one rage move accompanies that transformation.

The Story Mode is a nice thought, but all you get are freeze-frames of characters, supported by a bunch of text. No, no, no! Where are the voice-over artists? And who wrote these stories? They put you to sleep! There's no character development, just boring plot. The game does include movies, but you have to beat the game in various modes to access them one at a time. If you're going to make us work for a reward, at least make it fun. After all, we do PAY for this entertainment.
