    Hi all,
       I just quickly whipped up the menu translation for the game for those who 
    needs it.  Although I'm calling it a FAQ, I'm not sure if it will really become 
    one since I don't have as much free time any more. (that's why I never finished 
    my BB1 faq)  If people want to work on move list for each character/weapon to 
    put together, that will be great too.
       Just a very quick opinion about the game... 8)  Although, this sequel is 
    less realistic than the first one, I thought some of the changes are for good 
    than bad.  For instance, your weapons don't hit the walls any more, although it 
    still would hit pillars and other objects.  This is not realistic, however, it 
    makes the game so much more playable imo.  Now, you can use those other objects 
    for your stradgy but not the cheezy wall any more 8)  I personally got really 
    annoyed when people love to run next to the wall so they have less chance to 
    get hit in part 1.  One other change is that your legs don't get hurt any more, 
    thus you don't end up crawing on the ground any more.  I also like this change 
    because even though it was cool in BB1 at first but it got frustrating after a 
    while espeically if both characters are injured on their legs trying to kill 
    each other, etc...  One last major change is that the parry button is gone.  
    You would need to attack to parry, which imo isn't a bad thing.  A simple press 
    of a button to parry everything was just a little bit too cheezy in BB1 imo 
    because it was too effective.  Just about everyone could learn how to parry in 
    matter of minutes and get easy/lucky wins.  (note, I'm not saying there were no 
    ways around that)
       Of course, there are things I don't like about this sequel.  That is they 
    took out most of the side stepping attacks which is a big disapointment to me.  
    Also, even though they added many more characters in the game, each one of them 
    seems to have less unique techniques than the first one so a lot of characters 
    play very alike.  And there seems to be some problems with the collision 
    detection...  More than the first one anyway...  It seems that your character 
    get pushed back by the collision detection while attacking much more often than 
    the first one, which gets very annoying some times because when you should win, 
    you end up losing because your attack misses.
       Anyway, enough of my opinion, you decide whether the game is good or not 8)  
    Here comes the faq.
