Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard

RPG LAND
26 June 2009
  • Excerpt: On the Northern Continent lies the Grand Duchy of Lagaard, where a crisis is brewing. The specifics of this crisis are rather chilling when compared to the texts of the past, which tell tales of the entire continent sinking, save for a solitary floating castle. That castle has been lost to antiquity, but it may hold the secret to overcome the ill shadow that has been cast over the land.

Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard

Nintendo World Report
17 June 2008
  • Summary: It's more of the same, but that's a good thing.
  • Pros: Exceptional amount of control over party structure and character development, Intelligent challenges, The draw-your-own-map feature is even better than before, Very long with good replay value
  • Cons: Only one save file, Some slowdown in the 3D view in certain areas, Too easy to over-level when preparing for stratum bosses, Unchanging scenery for five levels is a bit much

Etrian Odyssey

RPG LAND
15 June 2007
  • Excerpt: As technology improves and tastes change, genres fade in and out of the limelight. Even though the genre has been somewhat resurrected by Nintendo’s DS, side-scrollers are now a relatively endangered species; point-and-click adventures have all but disappeared (stop making Star Wars games for a second and make a new Monkey Island game, LucasArts); and turn-based RPGs, once the standard, have been replaced by games that use varied and randomly named battle systems.

  • Conclusion: Atlus has carved out a nice-market of RPGs, thanks to titles like Disgaea and La Pucelle Tactics. Almost every game that Atlus has helped deliver has cemented the place of that market and they have catered to those fans with a passion; many of the titles have received praise for reviewers, but have taken flak simply because the audience is so focused and specialized.
