Dark Cloud 2 – Dark Chronicle – Retro JRPG Videogame Review for PS2

A day later than promised, but here is my review for Dark Cloud 2. Dark Cloud 2 improves upon Dark Cloud 1 in almost every way. (By the way, I reviewed Dark Cloud 1 yesterday, which you can read here.) You may want to read the review for Dark Cloud 1 first to get the fullest understanding of the Gameplay mechanics, as a lot of those same mechanics are carried over to Dark Cloud 2. Dark Cloud 2, like its predecessor is an Action-RPG with real-time combat and unique weapon leveling system, procedurally generated dungeons and world and city building gameplay elements. Title: Dark Cloud 2 (also sometimes referred to by the Japanese title, Dark Chronicle). Platform: PS2 Genre: Action-RPG Publisher: Level 5 Where to Buy: Playstation Store has Dark Cloud 2 (digital version...

Dark Cloud PS2 Retro JRPG Game Review

Reviewing one of my all time favorite games today, Dark Cloud. I will also be reviewing the very similar, but slightly better, Dark Cloud 2 later today as well. This game is extremely similar to Legend of Zelda. Our main hero even has a green floppy hat just like Link lol. But it brings with it some unique new features such as rouge-like random proceduraly generated level design, multiple playable characters, and most notably, a world-creation and city building system. Also, if you missed out on this awesome game back in 2001, you can play it again now if you have a PS4 via the playstation store. You can grab Dark Cloud 1 for $14.99 at  https://store.playstation.com... and also pick up Dark Cloud 2 for $14.99 at https://store.playstation.com... This was Level 5's first game - and defin

Kawaii Cat Cafe JRPG, 7th Dragon, Heads West with Over 96 Ways to Customize the Appearance of Your Hero

7th Dragon until now, has remained a title only available in Japan, but that is about to change with 7th Dragon III Code VFD on the Nintendo 3DS. This quirky little Time Travel RPG sees us in a not too distant future which is at war with powerful dragons. In order to save the world from destruction, you must travel to the ancient city of Atlantis, future capital of Eden, and present day Tokyo. The artwork features chibi super-deformed, bobble head, big head, tiny body style character designs, giving everything a very cute anime feeling. Check out the trailer below to see what I mean. Very Kawaii!: https://youtu.be/LPaYz7MIgiw With the cute art work, and almost endless ways to customize your hero, this game immediately sparks my radar. I admit, I've not heard of 7th Dragon until now. I'...

Monster Rancher EVO | Monster Rancher 5 | PS 2 | Monster Taming | Retro RPG | Review

Monster Rancher is a series of games (there's also an anime) in which you (at certain prompts) insert another cd, dvd, or game disc into your machine to generate a monster which you then take back to your ranch to train for battle. I'm reviewing Monster Rancher EVO today because it stands out the most for its story and characters, although its gameplay deviates significantly from any of the other games in the Monster Rancher world. I recommend this game, but I also would recommend any of the other Monster Rancher games as well. I've played them all (with the exception of the hand held ones). It is truly a great monster taming series. Also, although no new games have been released in over half a decade, there are 2 different mobile games which come close to capturing the spirit and fu...

Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals Retro SNES JRPG Game Review

Title: Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals Genre: RPG Publisher: Natsume Platform: SNES Release Date: 1996 Geeky:  Sweetie:  Overall Score: 60/80 75% C “Good Game For Girls” Concept: 9/10 This review is for the 2nd game in the Lufia series. Although, chronologically, the events in this game take place before the events in Lufia & the Fortress of Doom. Which we reviewed by the way over here in our Lufia and the Fortress of Doom Review. The 2nd game improved upon many aspects of the original including some pacing issues with the story and enhanced graphics, more challenging puzzles to solve, and no more random encounters. The story in Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals takes you back to playing as Maxim and the original heroes who helped defeat the sinistrals as shown briefly in the prolo
