fun game. although i gotta admit, whereas VFC was almost too hard (personally, i'd say it is) and the overall combat system too complex, VFC II is really too easy and perhaps the system a scoche simple. (although i gotta admit that stage hazards were pretty nice.) while i do appreciate seeing the guys in the fray, and the big H in the gold ending, there's gotta be some sorta balance between the two, i'd say.
still worth the play, ofc, and since it IS easy, worth replaying some time again to see the endings and where it could be headed next. on the other hand, while it doesn't exactly leave you begging for more, but a slightly more fulfilling experience, i could see myself playing more of these if you decided to continue them.
