Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 13
  2. Negative: 1 out of 13
  1. Improved graphics and new modes and characters are combined with solid gameplay that's been tweaked for the better to make for a dependable and entertaining sequel.
  2. All in all a nice little title which will keep most gamers amused.
  3. Owners of the original, however, have little reason to upgrade -- unless the idea of beating a virtual Michael Jackson to a bloody pulp is just too juicy for you to pass up.
  4. 77
    Round 2 improves every stylish aspect... but it's still made of the same stuff.
  5. For those of us who were big fans of the original game, the gameplay and presentation of R2RB: R2 are all too familiar, making the sequel seem like little more than a simple roster update.
  6. 76
    Nothing but a child's vinegar and baking soda volcano.
  7. A sequel that delivers more, but not quite enough.
  8. There's a few new boxers, and an enhanced move set. Past that, you'll find it's the same old game, in a new box.
  9. An arcade game, plain and simple. Unfortunately, that just doesn't cut it with today's console systems.
  10. Great graphics and animation alone can't save this punch-drunk sequel.
  11. More of the same delicious cake but with new frosting.
  12. Plenty of flash, spectacle and new features... but so little meat to carve a proper meal from.
  13. 7
    Its shallow nature may also put people off, but it's a laugh for everyone in multiplayer.
