Development

The game was officially unveiled at Microsoft Game Studios's TGS 2008 press conference, exclusively for Xbox 360.[1]

Developed by feelplus, the game's art style is noticeably darker than its predecessor.

At the Konami E3 (2010) press conference, the lead producer of the series, Tak Fujii noted that the sequel has been vastly improved technically, allowing hundreds of enemy soldiers to be present on screen in one shot. Fujii promised the game contains "millions" of new features but due to limited time he was only allowed to divulge a few with the press. Some of the main changes the sequel introduces include an online co-op mode, leaderboards and brand new difficulty levels which make the game even harder.[2]

In addition to these changes Fujii announced that the game will further build on the hack and slash gameplay implemented in the previous game, thus making it now an 'extreme' hack and slash title.[citation needed]

After the press conference Tak Fujii was also interviewed by G4TV[3] and GameSpot.[4]

Gameplay

There are multiple story modes; the main story of the game focuses on the character Galen. Combat is hack and slash with similarities to Koei's Dynasty and Samurai warriors series.

In addition to a single player mode there are co-op and online modes.

Reception

The game has received abysmal reviews, with a Metacritic score of 45 out of 100 based on 43 reviews.[5] Both IGN and Gamespot reviews criticised the gameplay, plot, as well as poor lip-syncing, noting an absence of challenge in core gameplay as well as frustrating boss fights.[6][7]
