Both teams need a equal number of players in order for a the team deathmatch to begin.


The Guardian mode places a group of players up to 4 against a series of NPCs which will attempt to defeat the group of players before they get to the end of the map.

Each style and accessory will greatly affect the abilities of the players using them, some styles and accessories focus on defense while others focus on a more offensive role to cause massive damage to opponents.




----- Graphics -------------------------------------------


This game is based around the Manga look. You can see screenshots at the bottom of this post. The graphics are pretty simple for this game and surprisingly nice to look at. Apart from that there is not a lot more to say.



----- Customisation ----------------------


GetAmped 2 features an editor which can be used to edit the appearance of the players skin and avatar. The entire form of the avatar can be changed to allow you to design a avatar which looks like Lighting from Final Fantasy XIII, Eren from Attack on Titan to Bugs Bunny. Players can also change and edit the appearance of their My Room.


Players can use the KDJ-Plus which can be brought in the Prime Market. This tool allows players to create and share their own music.



----- Communication ----------------------


Players can use animated emotions which, when used, are visible to other players. These emotions can be attached to F1-F8 on the keyboard, each key will allow a emotion to be set as well as a comment. For example you can have it set so when you press F1 your character pulls out a bunch of flowers and say "These are for you".


There is also a in-game mail system which delivers mail almost instantly in most cases and a chat function. The chat function has 4 settings: Local, Area, Guild and Friend. Players can form guilds and parties. Guild members have access to the guild bulletin board in which they can create threads to discuss topics of interest.
