Conclusion: Fuzion Frenzy 2 is a bad attempt at improving its predecessor. Basically every aspect of this game is sub-par at best and without solid achievements to warrant any long play times, it’s only slightly worthy of a rental. You’ll have some fun for a little while, but once the announcer begins to get on your nerves, any hopes for an enjoyable experience go up in flames.
Excerpt: Microsoft generated a fair amount of buzz when it announced the Xbox Rewards program. The ability to earn a free copy of a retail game by bumping up one's Gamerscore appealed to a lot of gamers. Because of the program, quite a few people will soon have free copies of Fuzion Frenzy 2 in their possession. If you are one of those people, here is a little advice: As soon as you get your game in the mail, trade it in for credit at your local shop.
Summary: Fuzion Frenzy 2 is a party game set in space that combines futuristic arcade action, superior mini-games, tournament modes, and custom tailored games with online features such as multiplayer and customizable tournaments.
Summary: Even if you're dying for an Xbox 360 title that is nothing more than a collection of mini-games, you should still think twice before attacking Fuzion Frenzy 2. With instantly forgettable games, ugly graphics and the worst character designs of all time, Fuzion Frenzy 2 proves to be nothing more than a way to get achievement points! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
Excerpt: Back in the day, when Xbox was the new kid on the block, clear and presently-failed attempts at attracting a diverse audience with games like Fuzion Frenzy was a forgivable endeavor, much like one forgives the spaghetti that doesn't stick when you throw it the fridge to see if it's done. A half cooked sequel, however... not so forgivable.
Conclusion: There's an age old discussion about there being only a handful of movie sequels that surpass the original. To my mind there's only three that stand out but that's a different story.* With games it's a slightly different case as sequels are more often an evolution of a games core idea than a complete re-write and can often improve over the life of a franchise.
Conclusion: The first "Fuzion Frenzy" was arguably the best party game on the original Xbox. Whilst not having the mainstream appeal of "Super Monkey Ball" or the intensity of "Mashed" it has always been fondly regarded by those who played it and loved it.
Excerpt: "Fusion Frenzy 2 on isolla kasalla erilaisia minipelejä varustettu pelipaketti, joka ei kuitenkaan valitettavasti millään onnistu nousemaan sinne yhdessä ystävien kanssa pelattavien "party-pelien" parhaimmistoon, osaksi sen presentaationsa, mutta pääasiassa sen tylsien ja liian kummallisten peliensä vuoksi. Jatketaan Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged Volume 1 -minipelikokoelman viitoittamalla tiellä ja jätetään erillinen arvosana tällä kertaa kokonaisuudessaan antamatta.
Pros: + Pelien määrä on melkoinen..
Cons: - ..Mutta vain muutama on edes jotenkuten hauskoja pelattavia, - Pelin äsryttävän "räikeä" presentaatio, - Hinta, sisällön laatuun nähden
