    Real Bout 2 worth the buy?

    I have RB and RBS, which are just amazingly fun, but Iím wondering if thereís really any incentive in getting a copy of RB2. The feedback Iíve gotten on it is that itís essentially a neutered version of RBS. RB itself is absolutely bat-shit, and RBS is nuts too. I just wonder if RB2 really is a game of concessions and sacrifices in the name of Ďbalanceí. Is there really anything that sets this one apart from itís predecessors?

    I'd buy RB2 just to look at the colors. Vivid, beyond almost any Neo-Geo Game.

    Good opinions here

    If you have the first two, you should just go ahead and get RB2. Its a great game, I think the real bout series has their pros and cons but all around fun. Really underrated series.

    RB2 is the best of the three in gameplay. Research some match videos for proof of why i am saying this. I love RBFF, but I can no longer deny the fact RB2 is the best of the three.

    I don't want to say RB2 is the best, like I can compare them. But it's definitely a worthy purchase. Not at the English price though.

    What sets it apart is that the matches move much faster. Less fluff. It's a better versus game than the predecessors with that pace, but the lack of win poses and proper endings may be a bit of a let down if you like to play alone.

    Oh, actually yeah wasabi posted what I was going to.


    I play fighters alone mainly.
    so I kinda hate this game.
    most definitely not made with the single-player experience in mind.

    Couldn't have put it any better but I will add this: RB2 is worth playing for Rick alone. Great character and he's fun as hell to use. Too bad he's largely forgotten outside of RB2.

    NeoGeo games suck. Get Black Ops or Halo Reach.

    I'v got both RBFF anf RBFF2, the last installment is truly awesome for Vs. fighting though I prefer the first game for single player fun. The music used inbetween stange selection and the round is purely awesome.

    point, RBFF2 is worth buying.

    RB2 is the best of the Real Bouts, and I say that as someone who loves all three. It will take a little while to grow on you, though. But you play it for a while and you will understand.

    If I had to choose one of the three games to call redundant, it would be RBS.

    RB2 is worth the buy. All around cast, great gameplay, and fun on the competitive level.

    If you wanna buy this I just came across an English cartridge, bezel stickers, and full sized marquee. Let me know if you're interested & make an offer!

    I wouldn't say that RB2 is the best of the series but I love all 3 games. To me RBS is where is at 'cause the tools are all there and it takes more instinct over knowledge to win the match. RBS is easier on a competitive level and that is great when you have visitors that like fighters but are new to the Neo.

    Def worth the buy though, RB2 is a fantastic game and when two people know what their doing then you have yourself the greatest fights you'll ever come across on the Neo. RB2 keeps it going and it keeps it fresh and simple at all times, is hard to get bored playing RB2 with a friend, before you know it a 100 matches have gone by and you're just warming up!

    RB2 is not only the best in the series, but one of the best fighters on the neo. Absolutely worth the buy.

    Well, thatís pretty unanimous; everyone thinks itís a must-have. Thing is, the feedback Iíve always gotten is that while there is a clear difference from RB to RBS, RB2 is essentially RBS with less shit, less presentation, etc. Iíve actually read through a forum post somewhere that claimed that the game was a rushed mess, and ultimately unfinished. If it honestly adds anything meaningful to gameplay then Iíd consider getting it. If it was designed for the sole intention of creating tourney fodder, Iíd rather pass. Rick looks interesting, sure, but not interesting enough to warrant the price of a game which seemingly has less bells and whistles than one I already own.
    Did anything really get fixed up/ polished up in RB2 that was either out of place or outright unforgivable in RBS?
    The feedback is great, by the way; much appreciated.

    Both are great games, but I much prefer how they handle the multiple planes in RB2. To have both characters in a back plane I always found to be kind of arbitrary, since they're either in the same plane or they're not. As RB2 treats the two planes as being relative, to me it really refines the multi-plane concept in a more enjoyable way. Again, not that there's anything wrong with RBS, I just happen to like the implementation better in RB2.

    Probably half of the people here prefer RBS and the other half RB2, so trying to figure out which of the two is the one worth owning is going to leave you frustrated. Both games are great and are worth owning in their own rights.

    Couldn't agree more. Also, FIFA > Metal Slug as the graphics are much better
