I've beaten the original and it kind of left a bad taste in my mouth. Must of been the repetitive Jobs, Stale Level design and awful Hub World. The combat/controls, stylish presentation, Boss battles and the story were the main attraction. In NMH2, The 8-bit Jobs and No Hub World in NMH2 should be a nice improvement. Yet it seems like NMH2 has been getting mixed reactions, some even saying that it feels kind of souless compared to the original. It has less memorable boss characters. Probably. And....that's it. There is literally nothing else. It has less memorable boss characters. Certainly. But... that's not all. NMH2 got rid of K-Entertainment. So now you're forced to play mini games if you want to buy any new gear. With K-Entertainment I used to take on a side mission and have $100,000 in sixty seconds. In NMH2 you'll be lucky to score half that after twenty minutes of mini game monotony. The gym is worse too. Hope you like retro game knock offs. This time around there's no story. (Just one more reason NMH2 shouldn't exist.) They even acknowledge it in game at the start, which I thought was funny. NMH2 holds onto the humor that kept the first game light and enjoyable--for about ten seconds. The characters almost immediately deteriorate into whiney moody creeps. Do yourself a favor and skip the cut scenes. The game ultimately ends up being more enjoyable without them. The levels are longer like the 'fans' wanted, but they're duller than before too. Aside from the prison level, every stage is just long stretches of enemies and more enemies and then some more enemies. They put up more of a fight now too. The original NMH's emphasis was the boss fight. NMH2 instead tries hard to feel like every other brawler you've already played. It's by far not as good as the original, but it's not all bad. It has great visuals, an exercise side quest for your overweight cat, and you can turn into a tiger now. Edited on Thu 1st November, 2012 @ 00:29 by Gamesake ...in my pants.
