  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: The single biggest complaint that can be aimed at Dark Chronicle is simply that the latter chapters regurgitate much of the same gameplay that the first half of the title introduces to the player, offering little incentive, beyond the story, to continue. The sheer number of things to do however, all but makes this point moot.

  • Excerpt: After so many years of playing games I still didn’t find out why in Japanese RPG games the heroes are always kids and the bad guys are always grown ups (well there are a few exceptions of course – sometimes you play teenagers alright). Little kids sporting swords and guns always make me feel uncomfortable, and thinking about the fact that they beat up wicked monsters that – believing the story line – have devastated whole lands, should make others curious too.

Dark Chronicle

  • Conclusion: Dark Chronicle is an excellent title, the main story will keep you playing it for ages but the sheer number of extras will mean that you'll probably never see every element of the game. It's a decent improvement on the original, which was a genuinely brilliant game in its own right. It could possibly have done with more variation in the dungeons but the random nature of the game doesn't really allow that.
  • Pros: The graphics are brilliant., Rebuilding towns is incredibly addictive., There's a seemingly unlimited amount of things to do.
  • Cons: Still suffers from slightly repetitive dungeons., Monica is cooler than Max and it should probably be the other way round.

  • Excerpt: Ceux qui ont joué à Dark Cloud ne seront pas surpris d’apprendre qu’il sera encore ici question de destruction, puis de reconstruction. Avec un scénario prenant place un siècle après celui du premier opus, Dark Chronicle met en scène Max, un adolescent résidant à Palm Brinks, dernier vestige d’un monde ravagé par un tyran nommé Griffon.

  • Conclusion: DC ist eines der innovativsten RPGs der letzten Jahre, welches dank guter technischer Umsetzung auch nicht so altbacken wie manch ein Konkurrent wirkt. Der Umfang des Games stimmt sowieso. Es d�rfte m�glich sein Dark Chronicle in etwa 40 Stunden durchgespielt zu haben, allerdings l��t man sich dann eine Menge entgehen. Mit all den M�glichkeiten und Mini-Games hat das Rollenspiel durchaus das Potential euch 100 Stunden und mehr zu besch�ftigen.
  • Pros: witzige Endgegner, super Game Play, sehr umfangreich, viele Mini-Games
  • Cons: teilweise Wiederholungen, zufallsgenerierte Dungeons
