Definitely not the d-pad from Zenonia, as you can actually move and attack diagonally (which is not possible in Zenonia 1 and 2). Dash seems more more consistent than in Hybrid 1, though still not perfect. The story doesn't make a heck of a lot of sense if you haven't played the first one (and even then it's pretty opaque), but at least the translation seems competent this time.

The three key differences between Hybrid 1 and 2 are:

*the graphics: they're are a lot more detailed and vivid than in the first one. Gray's sprite is larger, too, and he just looks better. This is still a cellphone port, though, so don't except Retina goodness here.

* mapping and exploration: The set up in Hybrid 2 is much more traditional than in Hybrid 1, with the expected towns, dangerous wilderness, etc. Gone is all that overworld/underworld stuff from the first one (at least in my first couple hours with the game). There are also side-quests, which I don't remember seeing one the first game.

* combat: this is bound to be the second most controversial change. Gamevil has gotten rid of the (IMHO) ridiculously complicated combos from the first one. Combos in H2 are simpler and make use of multiple buttons (instead of combining direction al taps and a single attack button). There's no change-grip button, and soul blade is activated by tapping a button in the upper left corner -- no diagonal swipes across the screen. Basically, combat feels more like that of Caligo Chaser and less like that of Hybrid 1. For me, that's a big improvement, but anyone who loved the swipes and combos of the first installment will find Hybrid 2 to be disappointingly straightforward (attack-wise, anyway).

* In-app purchases: the most controversial addition. You can buy anything from respecs to actual equipment and skill-improvement cheats.

All in all, I'm pretty hooked in the game right now, and I'm definitely enjoying it more than the first (that's not a ringing endorsement, since I really couldn't stand Hybrid 1.)

While the controls are improved I now find myself dashing when I don't want to and still think that was a horrible implementation to this game much like the first one.

I am only level 12, and the combat is more fun this time around when the ai hasn't locked you into a position of being pummeled. Unless there is a block button I am missing you can literally be slammed to death without being able to attack back or move. This includes that annoying dash, but don't worry if you run out of the essence of life to bring yourself back, you can just spend money with in app purchases to get more. Seriously!?! The way the in app purchases (which are optional) are fed into this game really cheapen the feel!

Unless you are a fan of the first one I would suggest passing. The game has improved but not enough to sell lemon the series still.

Cool! Hopefully it controls better than most gamevil games... After soccer superstars, I'm a little suspicious at how well the analog stick is for this =)

Generic story, probably the worst name of a game I've ever seen...

The graphics and gameplay looks good, so I'll wait fir TA review
