Conclusion: In every way possible Rengoku II: The Stairway to H.E.A.V.E.N. is a worthy successor of the original game. That is to say that it matches the faults perfectly and does little to elevate the franchise to anything beyond mediocre. The gameplay is clunky by design and there are questionable features included that make the experience a tad frustrating. Bland graphics and repetitive sounds don't do the aesthetics any favor either.
