There's no reason to think that Rengoku II would be good. The original game was an atrocity. But hope lived because there is so much potential for fun in the basic idea of the series. Futuristic androids (A.D.A.M.s) trapped in eternal battle in a tower representing the seven deadly sins for the amusement of the humans who made and then abandoned them? Intrinsically, this is a neat idea.
