Summary: Basically the same as its predecessor. The gameplay might get tedious, especially if you're not a fan of grinding and dying repeatedly. However, I thought the quirkiness and personality of the characters made up for it.
Summary: this game is totaly worth the price if you are a hardcore dungeon crawler fan, and especially if you are a rogue-like RPG fan.... while this game is fun, it is also REALLY hard (meaning you will spend countless hours leveling, dying, and losing all your items)... one word of advice, make sure you get a lot of kikan and deposite your money all into storage unless you are buying somethin....
Summary: I bought this game about 3 weeks ago randomly because of the cover design and im glad I did! I brought this game home and at first I was kinda bummed at the graphics but, you get used to it and im actually kinda glad its the way it is! It makes the game unique and different. I havent beaten the game yet so im sure that means that theres ALOT to the game. I like how you can explore dungeons and caves and get weapons and spells and everything.
Summary: I ordered this game after having gotten into roguelikes on the PC (NetHack, POWDER, etc). I knew it wouldn't be as deep as those or as complicated, but I was still a bit disappointed by just how simple it is. Dungeons consist of rooms and corridors with a random assortment of invisible traps and loot that quickly overwhelms your inventory.
Summary: Izuna 2 is definitely an acquired taste. Despite it's cutesy manga stylings the game remains tough and at times unfair as the very particular Japanese take on ancient ASCII Roguelike RPG's (as seen in the venerable Fushigi no Dungeon/Shiren the Wanderer series) usually are. But if you count yourself amongst those gamers who don't need to have their hands held at every stage, enjoys a monumental challenge - and can live with the games at time less than stellar design -...
Summary: Izuna 2 is an excellent sequel to a somewhat shaky (though still quite good) first game. Improvements have been made across he board, and the new character swap system makes the dungeons much more interesting and strategic. Couple this with the fact that you now have many towns and locations to explore and many characters to talk to and you've got a deep game with lots of opportunities for Izuna's lovable personality to show itself.
