Tail Slate has posted a review of the 1st episode of Clone Wars Season 3, aka Volume 2. Here's an excerpt:
The artwork is the same in Chapter 21 as in the previous chapters, although it did seem to have a different tone. There is a sense of darkness that did not seem present in the first 20. It was also a more developed story, which was refreshing. One of the frustrating things about the other chapters were their length, which didn?t allow for much character interaction. Here we see more between Obi-Wan and Anakin, Anakin and Padme, as well as the other characters.
Basically this means there is actual time for dialogue. The only action sequence in Chapter 21 is the opening when the ARC Troopers arrive to battle Grievous. I loved watching the Troopers do their work, as they charge in and simply start blasting. One trooper with his massive spinning blaster, cutting through metal and debris reminded me of Jessie Ventura in 'Predator', and his Gatling gun that sliced through the jungle.
