  • 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.

  • Summary: Au commencement (de la PS2) il y avait Dark Cloud, un jeu qui fût un piètre premier RPG pour la console. Maintenant, il y a Dark Chronicle, la pseudo suite de ce dernier qui est, on peut d’ores et déjà le dire LA bonne première surprise de cette rentrée !
  • Pros: Graphismes, Gameplay, Diversité des jeux, Univers magique
  • Cons: Répétitivité des niveaux

  • Excerpt: Det var riktignok ikkje for alle, nokre rett og slett hata å gå ned i utallige labyrintar som såg heilt like ut, berre for å plukke opp diverse gjenstandar. Ting forandrar seg. Ved første augekast er det vanskeleg å forstå at dette faktisk er oppfølgjaren til eit spel frå PlayStation 2s barndom. Mykje har skjedd bak døren til Level 5 sidan den gong, og bra er det. Så bra at dei kanskje har levert oss eit av årets beste spel.
