  1. ”Ooh, are we having fun yet?” When Blade mutters these words as you run though the thousandth dim-witted vampire it can be hard not to see the irony – even the game is getting tired.
  2. It's much better than a game that totally sucked, which games it just another average, and unremarkable, third-person action title. [Nov 2002, p.127]
  3. The control scheme is fresh and unique, even though it isn’t implemented the way in which it probably was meant to be.
  4. 49
    Clunky, methodical, and definitely on the boring side, Mucky Foot's latest creation should have spent a little more time in the dark before coming into the sunlight.
  5. You would think that they could make a fun game out of a fun movie, but Blade II does not come close to touching the wild action and appealing story that made the film such a delight to watch.
  6. The animation is equally as weak, and this is especially noticeable when you see Blade's rigid front and back flips. The XBox does a noticeably better job than the PS2 though.
  7. No soul, no panache, no cool. The extremely repetitive gameplay and poor controls, along with mediocre graphics and a sub-par plot make this title a strong candidate for the bargain bin (or maybe even the round file).
