Summary: This game never gets old, Its still fun and quite enjoyable to play today. Lots to do and create though it can seem daunting to new players at first due to the scope of things you need to take photos of, (One of the few games I do recommend a stat guide for). You will not be dissapointed in this game and is a must have for any collection.
Sweet graphics, simulation and RPG dungeon crawling all in one

Summary: This is a game that tried to combine elements of some other successful games and make something between .hack, simulations you play on PC (Sim City) and Diablo . I loved graphics, dungeon crawling is nice, but -you must read guide for good progress -there is no chemistry after two levels, all seems repetitive -there are better games you can get for Sony 2, more amusing so this is for people who played all RPGs and want more..
Summary: Charm. That is what this game has a-plenty. The moment you are presented with the world of Dark Cloud 2 you will become immersed in it. The storyline is wonderful, the main characters instantly likeable, combat is entertaining (even if it lacks depth), and every single mini-game is enjoyable (and there are a LOT of them). My personal favorite is Spheda, the golf game, unlike anything ever seen in an action-adventure RPG.
Summary: For those of you who have played the first Dark Cloud, the game that started it all, you most likely carry memories of both good and bad. The good being the town-building, weapon-upgrading, fun factor of it all, and the bad being the long, tiresome dungeons and the enemies that seem amazingly easy and uninspired. Let me just say that DC2 is an improvement over the first, but most of the aspects previously mentioned have remained the same, in some form or fashion.
Summary: The game uses an ingenious premise. Max is a young man, living in Palm Springs, who discovers that there is a huge world beyond its locked gates. He escapes through the sewers and discovers Monica, who comes from his own future. An evil wizard is destroying Monica's time by changing the past, and it is up to Monica and Max to rebuild in the past to recreate the future.
Summary: I am a 39 year old man, who has played games all my life. Having played 100's of games, and most role playing games for the PC, and many for the PS2, I have the knowledge to compare this to the competition. This is the first role playing game where it never seems like work. Everything is fun - very fun - extremely fun. I have owned this for 2 weeks, and have already logged 32 hours on it, and I am not remotely tired of it yet.
Summary: The only word to describe Dark Cloud 2 is "lovely". From the rich, colourful cel-shaded graphics to the understated musical score to the solid voice acting, Dark Cloud 2 is an immersive experience. It also plays extremely well; the controls are always intuitive, the challenge curve increases at a good pace, and the infinite things to do in Dark Cloud's massive world are all tons of fun. The gameplay is very similar to Legend Of Zelda's "dungeon"-dwelling.
Summary: Overall, the game was great and fun, all the way through. There was plenty enough to keep a person occupied: golf-like play, fishing, braving the dungeons with prowess, weapon upgrading system, and even inventions. The plot was okay, but could've had a major overhall, for a prolouge. There was a couple of reasons I took off one star - yes, only one. CONS: 1.) The monster transforming alteration, for Monica.
Summary: I must agree, this game is fun and sucks at the same time. I think, all in all, I hated this game yet it owned me for about 80 hours :). I'm glad to be done with it. GOOD: First, it is a beautiful and innovative game and much has been improved from the first DC. There is a whole lot to keep you occupied. The dungeons could be repetitive but the rewards caused you to return to them several times. The pictures and inventions were a great addition.
