FV2 moves fast and looks great. The animation and graphic style are intriguing. You get at least four new characters (Emi and Charlie immediately; Kuhn and Delsol later) to choose from. Game modes include Arcade, Versus, Random, Survival, and Training. You know it... play this game with a friend for maximum enjoyment.

Este Fighting Vipers 2 podría haber sido uno de los mejores juegos de lucha en Dreamcast? La respuesta es SI. El porque no lo ha sido es otra cuestión de difícil respuesta. Como punto a discutir sería si su clara orientación Arcade no le ha privado de llegar mas lejos, pero eso es al gusto del consumidor. Eso sí, mas vale que cada uno tenga las ideas claras con este programa a la hora de adquirirlo. Y se va a encontrar con un juego ARCADE hasta la médula, falto de opciones y modos de juego pero con la diversión que este estilo de títulos atesora...Y la mano de AM#2 no pasa desapercibida...

Kurzweilig, amüsant, gut: Fighting Vipers 2 mit seinem rasanten 60-Hz-Gameplay wird den Beat'em-Up-Fan sicher nicht enttäuschen. Vor allem die umzäunten Ringe sind für das eine andere spektakuläre Feature (Wall Breaker, Wall Juggles, Rebounds) gut und der Spaß, die Rüstung des Gegners in seine Einzelteile zu zerlegen, nicht zu unterschätzen. Leider viel Sega in puncto Ausstattung wieder in düstere Virtua Fighter 3-Zeiten zurück. Außer den Standard-Prügel-Spielmodi gibt’s rein gar nix zu entdecken.

It's with great pleasure that I recommend Fighting Vipers 2 as a sweet and shiny distraction to both Soul Calibur and DOA 2. By no means is FV2 a substitute for either of these fighters. This one is pure mind-numbing entertainment--the equivalent of watching a Dudley Do-Right cartoon after taking a physics class.

While Fighting Vipers 2's visuals and extra features impress, there are a number of annoying things that could have been fixed oh-so-easily but haven't. Overall, FV2 is a visually impressive and fun to play flawed game, but better than Soul Calibur? Don't be silly.

In the end, Fighting Vipers 2 attempts to get by on the strength of its fighting engine alone. This is a straight arcade port with no frills ¿ and considering how dated the game looks and plays, there should have been a lot more effort put into the conversion. If you must have a sub-par copy of the arcade game running in your home, then go ahead and import ¿ but don't forget that there are plenty of other superior titles out there that are more deserving of your hard-earned cash.

Fighting Vipers 2 no puede competir en ningun aspecto con los grandes, su planteamiento es demasiado arcade y su estilo muy limitado y repetitivo, lo que me hace no poder recomendarlo salvo que seas un fan de la recreativa o de la versión de Saturn.Para los demás y sobretodo si ya teneis Soul Calibur, DOA 2 y Rival Schools hacerse con este juego casi carece de sentido.

Sammantaget känns Fighting Vipers 2 som en halvhjärtad konvertering av ett redan från början ganska mediokert, och nu dessutom gammalt, arkadspel. AM2 verkar inte ha haft några högre ambitioner med Dreamcast-versionen. Visserligen är spelupplägget ganska tilltalande men det går inte att förlita sig på några få originella inslag och ett halvhyfsat karatörsgalleri om man vill ligga på topp i dagens spelutbud. Och det går inte att slarva med dåligt programmerad AI och grafikbuggar om man vill hävda att Dreamcast fortfarande har en plats bland de nya konsolerna. Hyr en helg är mitt råd.

Fighting Vipers 2 n'est pas issu de l'arcade pour rien. L'action est particulièrement dynamique et parfois impressionnante, mais les graphismes sont complètement dépassés. De plus, le nombre de personnages réduit à 11 et le manque de possibilités offertes par le gameplay réduisent considérablement l'intérêt global du jeu.

Fighting Vipers 2 est un jeu qui aurait certainement connu un vrai succès s'il avait été porté sur Dreamcast à ses débuts, il aurait alors été à la hauteur de la machine techniquement. Il est bien dommage qu'on nous resserve la même soupe 3 ans après, sans même avoir un peu recuisiné le tout (ça sent le moisi). Même si la recette reste bonne dans le fond, l'addition, elle, paraît bien trop salée désormais pour une présentation aussi rustique. A réserver aux fans les plus fortunés.

Perhaps AM2 had little development time between Shenmue 2 and Virtua Fighter 4 but they could have done a better job. Gamestyle cannot help but think that the Fighting Vipers 2 should have been included in one of the proposed Sega Arcade multi-packs as its value and appeal is quite limited. Not bad, but little effort on the conversion by AM2.

As we hinted in our preview (which was based on an imported copy), it's not enough that Fighting Vipers 2 be translated, it needs to be spruced up as well, and this just hasn't happened. As it is, at least the Japanese version's incomprehensible gibberish gives it some character. Fighting Vipers 2 for the West is a dismal swansong for AM2 and their Dreamcast contributions. Lets hope they pull something amazing out of the bag in the next few months to make up for this. Needless to say, don't waste your money on FV2.

Oh sure, the Fighting Vipers series lets you punch people really hard ... but Virtua Fighter 2 had a drunken fighter! Anyway, let me just say in closing, there is no reason you should import Fighting Vipers 2 ... well, unless you are still waiting to get your hands on Mortal Kombat Gold.
