A step up from the original; but still somewhat flawed...
5 October 2004
Summary: Though EA have included a much needed create-a-fighter mode in this superior sequel, there are still points at which the game falls down. Graphics, storyline, gameplay and soundtrack are all well polished and the use of branded merchandise in the story mode make this game stand out above some others in the genre. But the actual experience of the story mode is not at all enjoyable.
