    Too little of an improvement and far too late in the life cycle of N64 to impress anybody with its simplistic, arguably shallow mechanics and positively boring graphic look.
  2. Incredibly similar to the original -- so much so that even fans of the first game will be let down by the sequel's identical graphics, gameplay, and overall lack of innovation.
  3. It is sluggish and boring, unoriginal and tedious. It makes me ill. Don't buy this game.
  4. It’s a shame, because the first game had some really innovative ideas and it would have been nice to have seen a few of them here!
  5. Frankly, I liked this game better the first time around. FD2 doesn’t have the style that the first crack at this franchise had.
  6. Like any good fighting game, two players can enter the ring to seek their destinies in head-to-head battles.
  7. Even worse are the environments; some of the most amazingly desolate, dreary realms to be included in a game.
  8. Little more than a rehash of the earlier game, "Fighter Destiny 2" would have been acceptable in 1998, but feels extremely dated today.
  9. The novel point scoring system makes for intense play.
  10. Poor graphics and boring gameplay kill a fighter that could have been a contender.
  11. "Fighter Destiny 2" is not a total crime against humanity, but it's pretty close, and given the fact that it plays almost exactly the same as the dusty original, there can be no doubt that the fighting throne certainly doesn't go to this pretender.
  12. From the horrid character design to the stiff gameplay, this game isn't worth the ROM it's written to.
  13. While it is basically the same game with a couple tweaks and polishes, "Fighter Destiny 2" reigns as one of the system's best fighting games, a title to be checked out by all fighting-starved Nintendo owners.

A great cast of characters, nice graphics,THE GOOD: This is an underrated fighting game that is one of the best that the N64 has to offer. A great cast of characters, nice graphics, good soundtrack, responsive controls, and a large variety of game modes, on top of an already polished experience. You can get a lot of enjoyment out of this title, and it has aged better than many other fighters of the same generation. Heck, its even better than the original Super Smash Brothers!

    THE BAD: There could have been just a bit larger character cast,

    Underrated fighting game that satisfies. WORTH BUYING!
