Full Auto 2 was an opportunity to really push the franchise forward - or rather, to give what was initially a very mediocre game a chance of becoming a genuine franchise. As it stands, this is a step sideways rather than a step forward; the fixed framerate and new arena mode are welcome additions, but the core problems with Full Auto haven't been fixed. The difficulty level has gone from being utterly pitiful to being, on occasion, insanely frustrating and unfair, which is a change but by no means an improvement. The level design, the handling and the balance of the whole game remain skewed - just as badly as they were before, if not worse, albeit in different directions this time.
Running on fumes.
