Warning! Those are not vampires coming up behind you, but purveyors of a cheap movie tie-in game. Blade II knows how it works: give you some punk-rock bad guys and the mocking guidance of Whistler and you're likely to be satisfied. And some will. But the rest of us will be scratching our heads, wondering why Blade looks like a beefy Will Smith (instead of the lean yet muscular Wesley Snipes) and sounds like Some Guy They Got for Cheap, instead of a reasonable impersonator. Action-adventure gamers know the drill before the game even starts: strafe with bullets, special attack, punch and kick, complete missions. That's all well and good. This game earns its Mature rating with a particularly gross attack: a stab to the top of the head that seems to be Blade's specialty. (There are also plenty of swear words.) With a smidge of gore and an uninspired plot, Blade II is a game for fans only. --Jennifer Buckendorff Pros: Intuitive controls Amusing heckling from Whistler Rage function gives you extra bloodlust Cons: Blade himself: lame Stupid missions
