It has better characters, a more serious story, and less shonen tropes. 2's plot gets good at the very end of it, but until then it's a constant tone shift that, at least in my opinion, took me out of the experience for the most part. The original is fairly good at keeping it's tone in check, and the battle system, while not being as complex as 2's, is way faster paced. Currently Playing: SoulCalibur VI, Professor Layton and the curious village, SMT V.
