Description of The Last Blade 2 for Neo Geo

Advertisement
Often called the biggest flaw by it's fans. Last Blade 2 posses some gameplay problems, namely player balance. Characters are credited, more so than normally, with either being cheap, weak or better the first time (examples being Mukoro, Washizuka and Setsuna). While this does unhinge the gameplay dynamics slightly, I personally find it oddly fitting. It seems that Last Blade 2 was created to be a very grounded and almost realistic fighting game, if that is imaginable. In real life, some people are very very strong. Some people are very very weak. We as gamers often assume automatically that all characters in a game are balanced. That if one person is slow, they are also very strong. If one person is faster, they are probably weaker. Everyone knows the archetype in their head. Just tell yourself this is not the case with this game. Murkoro is viciously strong, quick and well suited to a button masher...so? Just because a playing field is uneven doesn't automatically make it wrong. You should not let this harm your enjoyment of a grand title. If you accept this flaw at face value it no longer is a bad thing, it adds character to the game...it adds originality. Whether this was the intent when the game was made was irrelevant, the point is to derive enjoyment from the game and if it helps to see it in that light, all the better.
