Dark Cloud by Sony

Game Monkeys
5 March 2013
  • 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. That will always detract some from the replay value, but when you do play it you always have fun.
  • 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.

Dark Cloud 2 by Sony

Game Monkeys
5 March 2013
  • 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 2

Just RPG
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. Those of you who were scared away by the first Dark Cloud …come on back! Dark Cloud 2 is better in pretty much every way. You start your adventure as Max, a young inventor who lives in the town of Palmbrinks.

  • Excerpt: By Gary Kearney I’m going to let you in from the start that I absolutely love this game. It is one of the best games I have ever played. Just writing this review makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. This game may very well be one of the best RPGs for any system. If this game were a girl, I would marry it and then worry that I wasn’t good enough for it. It probably has the power to calculate the final digit of Pi. It helps little old ladies cross the street.

Playstation Illustrated
13 June 2004
  • 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 )). Okay, back to reality. Does this cel-shading really matter? No. In fact, I'll be the first to admit that after a dozen or so hours of play, I didn't really notice it anymore.

9 February 2004
  • Excerpt: Dark Cloud was one of the most popular RPGs on the Playstation 2, and February will see the release of the eagerly awaited sequel, Dark Cloud 2 . With vast improvements over the original, Dark Cloud 2 looks to be a promising game. Dark Cloud 2 seems to have little, if any, connection to the original (so long Toan! You were underdeveloped and boring anyway!). This time your main character is Max, an ingenious little boy who works as an inventor in a small workshop.

Dark Cloud 2 – Review

GameCritics.com
2 October 2003
  • 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. This may seem puzzling since a sequel should be better than the original (in theory), but, as most people know, this is seldom the case.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: When Dark Cloud was released, it was greeted with mixed reviews. Although it had a few problems, I found the game to be a fun action/adventure PS2 title. Not being content to just rehash the same game, developer Level 5 went back to the drawing board and mixed in some new ideas, cel-shaded graphics, and a lot of fun in one of the best titles of 2003--Dark Cloud 2.
