Not Red-Hot, But Fiery Enough

JuMeSyn, RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Improvement between installments of RPG series is a frequent occurrence. Rare is the transition in a series of such a noteworthy quality leap as the Breath of Fire series evidences, however. Where Breath of Fire managed at best to be fitfully diverting, Breath of Fire II succeeds in delivering a quality quest with quite a few distinctions to make it stand out. It is not one of the greatest RPGs from the 16-bit era, but does deserve to be remembered 11 years later.

BOF2 returns!!

  • Summary: i have played this before and have truly enjoyed it. it is very fun to play and easy to get into. the main pro in my opinion is that all through the game you are alyways given a choice ( as examples, you have a coice to pick who is going to build your town and who gets to live there, and at the risk of being a spoiler, when there is the scene of the two ninas you have a coice as to wether or not to forgive the original nina) this naturaly is very interesting.

Fun game

kailasmehta, Ebay

  • Summary: Overall, this game is very fun, although it has a few notable issues (the biggest of which are the simplicity and length of it.). It has an interesting plot, but unfortunately it isn't long enough to fully realize it's potential. There are virtually no side quests and the side quests that there are are very obscure and not at all hinted at in the main story. Despite these short-comings, it is a very fun game and deserves at least a play-through or two.

Fun and Engaging

questorps7, Ebay
14 July 2007
  • Summary: "Breath of Fire II" is a rerelease of the SNES title for Game Boy Advance. Like most of GBA RPG rereleases, BOF II benefits from polished graphics and improved gameplay. And while BOF II isn't as engaging as its Playstation counterparts ("Breath of Fire III" and the series' supreme entry "Breath of Fire IV"), the game is still fun. A good introduction for those unfamiliar with the series.

  • Summary: I finished beating Breath of Fire 2.This RPG has aged quickly,and it seemed much more fun,exciteing and engrossing when it was on Super Nintendo.But its almost a direct port ---- almost the same thing as the Super NES version.The gameplay is ok,but the battle system may be a turn off for new school RPG fans.It has good controls for a RPG.Dont get me wrong though,the controls sometimes get you comfused.I really liked the story line but i'm not going to spoil it right here...

  • Summary: Breath of Fire 2 on the GBA is just as good as Breath of Fire 1 on the GBA, if not better. BOF2 has an all new character line-up and a new (and better) storyline. The graphics have been beefed up a little since the first game and, as I said befere, the storyline is more enthralling. Link cable connection is back, allowing you to trade items with a friend.
