Eh, story is subjective. However, I do miss the darkness of the old one. i don't mind this story though (or at least what I've been able to play).

Controls were responsive for me, it was the cutscenes that were killing me. This could be helped by them reducing the graphics.

Yeah, I could've done with more variation, but again this is a fighting game an one on iOS at that. As me about all the console fighting games I've played since Sega that were reskinned or only had a few new characters. It's not easy coming up with new monsters, you know. Not to be a smart ass, but you could always offer to help them out if you have some fresh, new ideas.

Yeah bugs suck but I've come to know them well. The good thing about console is that you can usually exploit the hell out of them for your own personal gain. On iOS, you get unwanted crashes and so forth. I wonder if the platform was taken more seriously, would bugs be less frequent? This wasn't a shot at you!

Did you ever think this was a bridge to the third game?

I think I have thought of the reason that this is getting so many full mark reviews, obviously chair is giving *bum love* to all the reviewers.
As from my point of view (iPod 4g user) it hardly ever loads and if it does sometimes it has no sound effects. Then you come back and your save has vanished, oh and did I forget the stuttering frame rate?
IMO what a let down, the first game was amazing but IB2 has been ruined by a rushed launch.

Loaded the updated version onto my sister's ipod (same version as mine), no flaws...updating mine now, hopefully this works..

I understand everyone's frustration, but despite the flaws, I'm loving this game. I enjoy playing it, and the way everything looks, so I wasnt too crushed the one time I lost my saved game. And please stop critisizing the reviewers, they played on the iphone 4s, and from what I've heard, the game runs perfectly on that device.

I also think any flaws are because of Apple, NOT Chair. Apple was the one pushing for the december 1 release date. I'm confident Chair will have things running smoothly in no time, especially because it's essentially Iphone's flagship game.

Agreed! The game is definitely buggier than it needs to be. What I did get to play of it was great; only had to deal with laggy cutscenes. Now I can't play at all and I'm not a happy camper anymore.

Just business, ya know!

Edit
I love my iPod, but sometimes Apple and all the nonsense makes me want to go back to console. Then I can enjoy my game system fully for about 8 years.

I must say that the achievements in IB2 are a bit of a disappointment. Merely 4 reflect an accomplishment. ALL the rest are either incremental ("Do this 100 times"), or eventual ("Attain level 10"), as in that you will eventually reach them if you just keep playing, regardless of skill or accomplishment.

Of the four that DO reflect a certain feat, three are very, very easy. Win a fight without taking damage with Sword and Shield, with Dual Weapons, and with heavy Weapons. I got the first after the first fight. The fourth, win a fight without attacking the enemy, is probably a lot more creative and hard to attain (though I might be wrong in that regard). I wish there were another 30 achievements along similar lines.

I'm curious: are there any players out there experiencing any sense of achievement when told that they've done something reasonably trivial a hundred times (as opposed to performing a really challenging action a set number of times, which is another matter entirely), or when informed that they've accomplished something anyone can do if they play long enough?

Can you please update it such that when you complete a round of the Old Game, it updates the stats of the New Game? Because now, I've pretty much wasted a few solid days of playing, if I ever choose to go for a New Game +. Thank you.

EDIT: I'm not sure if the developers read this thread, but if there's anyone else out there wondering, yes, completing the Old Game twice doesn't re-update the New Game stats; they're "frozen" after you complete the Old Game the first time. Can someone help me communicate this issue to wherever it'll make a difference? Thanks. ^^
I can confirm this. Just finished a second playthrough at lvl 52 and my ng+ is still at 28 which is frustrating. I hope they change it to the IB1 format where you can choose whether to go to ng+ or not. Ironically it makes the game feel more grindy if you have to avoid finishing the game to keep levelling until you're a high enough level. As opposed to cranking up GK levels and seeing if you can beat a lvl 1500 Gk or whatever.

Yeah, I'm not really a fan of do this a 100, 1000, 10, 0000 times achievements. As much as I hate COD nowadays, some of the best achievements were on Modern Warfare 2. Look those up if you want to see what achievements should be. First and only game I ever got every single achievement for; well a few arcade games, and came close on Mass effect and Fable.

Nonetheless, I'm an achievement whore.

Been playing this for a bit now, was a maaaassive fan of the first and played it to death (put like 60 hours into it or so). Thus far IB2 is kinda impressive but the performance is a bit worse than IB1 (I'm on iPhone 4) and it has kept me from being as immersed in it as the first one. Pity cause on every other front the game seems fantastic.

EXACTLY how I feel about this game. The only technical issue Ive ever encountered is the occasional lag. This, and the fact that it is never as smooth as the original really keep me from being immersed the same way I was with IB1. But I've found that for the smoothest experience, restart your device each time before you play.
(I updated the game btw)
But I am very optimistic that Chair will smooth everything out eventually. Then everyone will consider it an "iOS Masterpiece".

Yeah I installed the patch and rebooted, better but still... Not as immersive as IB1 because of the poor performance.
