Summary: Loved the game. Follows and shares elements of the first game, dark cloud, and loved it even more because of this. It actually taught me how to upgrade the weapons in the first game from this game, hehe.
Dark Chronicle (PS2): One of the best RPG's of the last decade.

Summary: Professor Layton and Inazuma Eleven have now turned Level 5 in to an emerging games publisher. But not so long ago they were a small development studio in Japan working on Playstation exclusive games. Whilst there have never set the sales charts on fire outside of their native Japan. There was still a small but loyal fan-base to be found within the NA, EU and AUS regions.
Pros: Beautiful to look at even now, Excellent weapon upgrade system, A ton of extras to play
Cons: Dungeon Crawling will not appeal to all, One of the more expensive PS2 games
Amazon lies to UK government and pays even less tax

Summary: Last year Amazon said that it earned £320 million in the UK yet only paid £3.2 million in tax. Don't we all wish we only paid 1%. The trouble is though that Amazon told its US audience that it earned over £4 billion in the UK market. Either Amazon is lying to the UK tax authorities or it is confused. It certainly is grossly immoral.
Summary: I really enjoyed this spiritual successor to Dark Cloud. While it retains many of the game mechanics from the original Dark Cloud game, no previous knowledge of the prequel is necessary and many of the game's functions have been improved. More minigames have been added (such as the golf-esque sphere minigame) and existing ones such as fishing have been improved.
Summary: Well, where to begin with Dark Chronicle? I suppose the beginning would be best. You control one of two main characters, who are both appealing and fun to play. The weapons you find or buy can be upgraded in many different ways, from elemental attributes to abilities like Critical Hits and increased experience, with a decent build-up tree.
