Conclusion: Drakengard 2 is a hard game to judge. The concept is phenomenal, the story is great, and at times the action is remarkable. Unfortunately, as is the case with most games of this nature, the gameplay gets so repetitive to the point that it detracts from the experience.
Conclusion: Most of all you can't begrudge its pluckiness. We all love an underdog and, for a game so relatively unrefined and immaturely realised as this to be attempting the things it attempts, is heart-warmingly commendable.
