The Legend of Kage 2 is a very basic platformer, and an under-average one at that. It doesn't top the pure atrocity of the original title, but certainly comes close. The game's assets such as the environments, enemies and such are all re-used again and again throughout the game, making it extremely repetitive. The soundtrack isn't too bad, and the bosses are fun but that's pretty much it. If Daily Joypad was to sum up the game in one word, it would be uninspired. If you did decide to pick up the game, most likely you'd blast through it once and trade it in afterwards. Please, just kill off the Kage series once and for all Taito.
