What do you think of KI2?
« on: July 29, 2013, 01:22:22 PM »

Just curious, it's usually seen as a... less than stellar game, shall we say, by the FGC, even among fans of the first game. Around here though, I've seen people looking back on how much fun they had on it. I'm curious as to whether you guys found it just as fun as the original, if not more.

I love Ki2 just as much as 1.  It feels a bit different, but its still awesome!  I have noticed that people tend to lean towards the 1st Ki in which i can see why, but 2 is no let down at all.

I kind of feel like its missing something from the original.  I dont know if Rare was pressured to change the game or if they just wanted to try it.  The presentation was great like KI1, the technology was slightly better and it showed.  I personally didnt like the game nearly as much as KI1, but its still a great game.

It was missing Jago's blue costume and to this day I dont know why. Yes I know its in the N64but kinda odd all the CGI shows him wearing it but not an option in game..

anyway it is missing something from the original and for me its the atmosphere is pretty different but I still play it just as much.

I only like KI2 because it introduced a few new good mechanics. I don't like the upbeat feel of KI2. The music, character design and overall tone are completely different from the menacing feel you get from the first one. I also didn't like the story. KI is my favorite.

Prefer KI2. I played KI2 first and it sort of introduced me to the series.

I play both for different reasons. I can't really compare because they're both awesome.

I like KI2, but I love KI. The things that I personaly feel made KI2 a lesser game:
- The fact that it had the same amount of playable charecters, Imo all fighting games sequal should at least expand their roster total with 4.
- It had less finishers then KI and dropped humiliation
- They altered the moves drasticly so it felt that a charecter you played in KI didn't play the same in KI2
- The infight finishers. Felt this forced the finishers to be mostly projectile based and also dropped the recovery that knocked out players could use as a last hope.

Well said!

Maybe they were rushed to put KI2 out.  I'd love to hear the reason behind dropping Cinder, Thunder and Riptor.

Excellent XYL! It does play different and it has its pros and cons. I was very welcoming to the new characters and gameplay.  The combo system for some reason did not feel as rewarding.  Loosing some characters was a sad sight, but I do love Kim Wu! I still love both ki1 and 2.

I dislike it for all the reasons XYL listed, plus breakable ultras and Gargos not dying by normal means.
