My local library is lending out video games now, and I had this on hold for about a couple of weeks. My turn finally came up so I checked it out.
The game is not exactly like the older Budokai games from the previous generation. Raging Blast 2 is more complex and tougher to master. If they were like racing games the Budokai series would be more like the easy to play Burnout games. While Raging Blast 2 is more like Gran Turismo, harder to pick up but more complex and deep.
Took me awhile to get the hang of it, but I'm starting to really enjoy it now. Plenty of characters to choose from even at the start of the game. I also enjoyed the new bumped up graphics.
