  • Summary: Rengoku 2 lets players assume the role of A.D.A.M., a battle android trapped in a mysterious tower filled with fearsome enemies. Players must now enter a new tower and purge it of the mechanical scourge hosted inside. Players can customize their battle android with more than 300 rare and unique items. [Konami] Expand

  1. The whole game seems like an exercise in monotony; a battle-tech demo with refreshing character design. [Sept 2006, p.62]
  2. A dramatic improvement over its predecessor, although the gameplay is more repetitive than we would like to see.
  3. The game ultimately runs out of steam before it's over, but along the way, Rengoku II creates a more streamlined and interesting experience than its predecessor.
  4. It’s another short game in a terrible series that should have been axed at the first try but for some reason it’s back and will be terrorizing the USA later this year. My advice is to look the other way and never touch Rengoku 2 the Stairway to Hell. [JPN Import]
  5. Only marginally better then its predecessor and still suffers from many of the exact same flaws that made the first game so dismal.
  6. Perhaps with better level design, Rengoku II could have been a contender, but as it stands right now the game fails to deliver the goods.
  7. So this makes it officcial: The Rengoku series is stillborn. [Oct. 2006, p.92]

    Very fast-paced, very stylish, and with a ton of 'leet' content and delightfully overpowered weapons. It can get repetitive, but I've played it on and off for 5 playthroughs (omg!) and it's still fun to find new ultra-rare loot and test it out on hordes of enemies.

    Besides, the art style and the music is pretty awesome.

    This is not nearly as bad as some reviews indicate. It's a large improvement over the first one in every possible way, and although it doesn't offer a good story, it does deliver a lot of creative loot that's genuinely fun to use, and a lot of action. The art direction is above average, and the game is made to be played more than once, as it unlocks new content. I got this for $7, and I'm glad I didn't miss the chance to enjoy this game. Expand
