Standard Dungeon Crawler

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: The game izuna 2 is an awesome game but its so hard that i dont recommend for young children. Lol, I even died on the tutorial. But the game is pretty awesome if you like rpg games that are really and are dungeon like than this is a game for you.
Summary: I will admit, the only reason I got this game was because I'm an anime fanatic. That being said, I wasn't prepared for what the game had in store. By the way, this has nothing to do with anime, but it does have it's second-grade humor about Shizune's bust size and breaking the fourth barrier (saying that they have viewers or reffering to the first game within the game), which some anime series do tend to do.
Summary: I got this game as a gift and so far they love it. I've tried a few hours on it myself and found it to be a pretty interesting game. You can play different characters, which is refreshing break from playing only one character for RPG's, and also you can equip different weapons which is another plus. The characters are funny and lovable in talking scenes. The only downside to the game is if you lose in a cave then you lose all your money and stuff.
A dungeon crawler sequel that's better than the first

Summary: I gotta give a lot of props to Atlus for releasing, well, everything they do. They got a knack for releasing good games that aren't flashy or popular enough to get released through other publishers. I've played the original and found it so-so. The gameplay was always an extreme between "you're invincible" and "you're fodder". There are a few things Izuna 2 does to help moderate the experience. First is the addition of a partner during the dungeon crawls.
Summary: The graphics aren't 2008 type graphics, but the game is still good in my opinion. I've never played the first one, so I can't compare. One of the bad parts is that if you die in a dungeon, you lose EVERYTHING you have on you. So, stock up your storage with stuff you don't want to lose. However, if you do die, you don't lose your EXP as with other games. Your storage holds about 60 items and your on hand inventory holds about 20 items.
A fun little Rogue-Like, if you're into that kind of thing

Summary: Izuna 2 The Unemployed Ninja Returns has a lot of things wrong with it: the menu, while competent, needs to be accessed way too often; it's harder than a witches nipple; and it's too damn fun. The game mixes light hearted anime-esque story telling and humor as well as some rather simple Rogue-Like mechanics and finishes it off with some old-school difficulty. To put it simply, do not buy this game if you get frustrated easily.
