  1. The best PS One fighting game to come along in a while, and probably the last great fighting game for the PS One.
  2. The improvements are great and make the game closer to the vision of a great 3D X-Men fighter but it’s hard to recommend a game that is so lacking in depth that it becomes quickly tiresome.
  3. Fairly impressive. It may be rough around the edges, but it's currently the best Marvel Comics-inspired fighting game available on a Sony video game console.
  4. If you haven't played MA, then grab this one for all the bonus items. If you already have the first MA, then you'll only need this if you want 6 extra characters.
  5. The actual gameplay has changed imperceptibly in Mutant Academy 2, but six new characters and six new stages make it feel like a much more complete fighting game.
  6. The game just lacks the depth to keep hardcore fighting-game fans interested. [Nov 2001, p.167]

    The controls are still the most frustrating part of the game: They’re sloppy, inexact, and derivative of Street Fighter's with a dash of Tekken's thrown in.
