Summary: Pros: Terrible story, voice acting, dumb A.I., fun characters Cons: Frustrating level grading system, real slog to get 1k achievements If you are buying this game you probably are doing so out of nostalgia or easy achievements.
Summary: I had a lot of fun with the original "N3" and figured this one would be at least as fun, so I bought it. It turns out that the developer fixed a lot of the pacing issues that were so irritating in the first one and GREATLY expanded the characters powers and abilities.
Summary: While this game is a great challenge, it packs loads and hours of fun. The graphics are impressive for a launch title, gameplay is very similiar to that of Dynasty Warriors, and the storyline so far is pretty intriguing.
Great hack n slash but a few issues keep it from achieving total perfection!

Summary: N3II was a gamble on my part. While I staunchly support the hack n slash genre this one got negative marks across the board at many review sites. Was it "that awful"? The masochist in me bristled with excitement as I placed my order! Disappointingly I must confess this is not a "So bad it's epic!
Summary: This game is a standard hack-and-slash game with very little thought involved. There are some puzzles to work out to unlock doors and stuff, but basically you kill as many guys as possible to earn xp and level characters, skills, & weapons.
Summary: I've been playing this for about 3 hours now and I'm really glad I gave it a chance. I picked it up at Blockbuster for about $8 and it's a lot of mindless fun. The gameplay feel is strong, the customizations and upgrades keep it interesting and there's a good variety of enemies.
