As in Feeding Frenzy, players have to control several fast growing marine predators who are out to uncover a mystery which is lurking in the ocean. The aim of the game is to avoid predators and obstacles while eating other smaller fish and creatures, eventually reaching the top of the food chain. Feeding Frenzy 2 includes 60 new levels which feature sceneries such as new underwater worlds, coral reefs, deep sea caves, and sunken ships, as well as above water challenges. The story mode has the player start (and end) as a small butterflyfish named Boris. The player has to eat and chomp his or her way to the top of the food chain. Along the way, the player encounters new prey and predators, both friendly and unfriendly, and must stop an alien anglerfish "The Intruder" from destroying the ocean.
