i purchased this game from amazon and when i got it i had second thoughts of even keeping it. yesterday i decided to open it and play it, it seems a little corny at first but it's actually a good game. i had a lot of fun playing it.
most movies-turn-games are horrible, but this one is good. there is a lot of action packed fighting and shooting. the funniest thing is i didn't see blade 2, but i like wesley snipes so i bought it and don't regret it.
replay value: 5/5
fun factor: 4.5/5
okay, you got my opinion so check it out!

In every action movie situation, there is always the possibility for a game tie-in. Enter Blade 2. What could go wrong? The first one was pretty good, right? Right? Well.. in this, just about everything went wrong. The game even starts out with a commercial for the movie. The graphics are ok. The textures are rather bland, but the backgrounds do a pretty good job of depicting the Blade 2 environment. This game is not as violent as the movie. The animations, however, are so stiff and limiting, you find yourself getting hit the most when you're throwing a punch. In the sound department, the general action sounds are nothing spectacular, but nothing to be ashamed of either. The voiceovers however, are terrible, and none of the movie's actors pop up. The music (though it sounds like a (duplicate) of the orignal soundtracks albeit without licenses) fits the scene rather well and would be perfect for a fast paced action game. This however, is the game's huge problem. The control scheme would be perfect if the player didn't get so caught up in how slow Blade moves. The targeting system is easy enough to get used to, in fact, I would even call it intuitive. His attack system (using the right analog stick to attack in a certain direction) would be perfect if Blade was actually as fast as he is in the movies. Get this: you actually have to earn the right to use that super cool sword. All in all, this game was uninspired and a complete rush job to get there in time for the movie, and I am very dissapointed. Wanna buy the game? Ok, as long as you use that "I bought both movies and I need both games" excuse, but in reality, there was no excuse for this game. Are mindless, needlessly difficult action and frustrating controls your bag, however, go ahead and buy it. For me? I wouldn't have even rented it if I knew what I was getting myself into.
