Dark Cloud 2 review (PS2)

HonestGamers
28 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Familiarity breeds contempt... An old proverb, but one which seemed perfectly appropriate in describing the multitude of hours I’ve spent delving into Dark Cloud 2 . Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a particularly bad game -- in fact, at points I’ve been amazed at how well certain things have been...

Dark Cloud 2

Playstation Illustrated
5 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Yet another sequel in an RPG series has gone the way of the not-so-new-anymore graphical style of cel-shading. My only question is why? By stepping on my soapbox, I can now say it drives me insane when developers change the graphics like this (that means you too, Nintendo ( Zelda )).

  • Summary: All in all, I think Dark Cloud 2 is my favorite of the current batch of adventure / rpg games. It's got all the standards you're looking for plus a ton of subsidiary entertainment to keep you going. I'd definitely recommend it over all of the competition I've played.
  • Pros: Very pretty, lots of variety, evil clowns.
  • Cons: Can be inconsistent and feel repetitive at times, no story, nothing truly original.

Dark Cloud by Sony

Game Monkeys
18 July 2004
  • Summary: This game delivers in almost every way. There are a few flaws in it as with the instructions, but some of the drawbacks of the game are necessary to making it as cool as it is. For example for a game to have a quest as epic as this one repetition is a must.
  • Pros: : Sweet graphics, cool weapons system, six different playable characters each with their own unique abilities, and a chance to rebuild the world and make it better than before.
  • Cons: Repetitive, oo many dungeon levels, the weapons take too long to upgrade (especially if you go all the way with all six characters), and the instructions give you the wrong instructions for the fishing game.

2 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Dark Cloud was one of the PS2’s best selling RPGs, but most gamers found themselves disappointed. The success of the first game has led to a recent sequel, and the developers have learned a lot from the first game and in Dark Cloud 2 we see some major improvements.

  • Excerpt: Sequels are generally a problematic proposition. A successful game or film always has fans ready to receive second or third helpings, but it's no secret that they usually fail to satisfy.

  • Excerpt: Got a few free hours this weekend? Got 150? Well, that's kind of how I felt when I received Dark Cloud 2 to review. I had no clue what was in store for me. The detailed complexity of this game was beyond anything I could have imagined. Remember how you felt when you
