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 Review

GameSpot
8 July 2008
  • Summary: Etrian Odyssey II's brutality and grinding is initially off-putting, but push on and you're in for an intense, rewarding experiences.
  • Pros: Plethora of weapons, armor, items, and character abilities to unlock, Small but welcome interface and cartography improvements, Lengthy quest and a challenge level that will keep you invested
  • Cons: That challenge level may also induce hair loss, Bare-bones story offers very little exposition

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Wars games for a second and make a new Monkey Island game, LucasArts); and turn-based RPGs, once the standard, have been replaced by games that use varied and randomly named battle systems.

Etrian Odyssey Review

GameSpot
29 May 2007
  • Summary: Etrian Odyssey is a turn-based role-playing game like any other, but it sports one heck of a mean streak to elevate it above the crowd.
  • Pros: Highly customizable, immersive gameplay, extreme difficulty makes for a good deal of excitement, deliberate but well paced, especially for being so long
  • Cons: Far too much backtracking, gameplay could have been streamlined with a few minor tweaks
