Jade Cocoon 2

Playstation Illustrated
30 October 2003
  • Excerpt: Graphics have had an overhaul since the first game, but I can't say I like everything about the change. Things that were most memorable in Jade Cocoon from the beginning were battle animations, the actions of your captured and bred creatures in battle, and lush pre-rendered backgrounds that were well lit and beautiful. Oh, and the character design, which drew heavily from anime and manga. So, for the second installment, some major changes were made.

  • Excerpt: When the first Jade Cocoon was released, it didn’t really draw many players in. Though the game had boasted great graphics and millions of monster combinations, the lack of a developed story and characters lessened its appeal. Genki has learned their flaws and it shows in Jade Cocoon 2, brought over and localized by Ubi Soft. In the first game, the Cocoon Master Levant traveled deep into the Forest to save his village from the Locusts of the Apocalypse.

  • Excerpt: Let's take a trip inside an RPG. What is an RPG you ask? Well a RPG is a Role-Playing Game. A Role-Playing Game is unlike any other game that you have probably played. It is a game of thought and patience. A game that you must investigate and figure out the Who, What, Where, Why, and When. In this week's review we help the young Kahu in his quest to fulfil his dream of being a Cocoon Master.

Jade Cocoon II

The Armchair Empire
18 April 2002
  • Conclusion: The plot won’t be turning heads anytime soon, but to its credit the story remains a notch above what you would usually find in a monster breeding game. Helping to elevate the story’s quality is the level of voice acting. While usually I cringe at the mere mention of voice acting, what I found in Jade Cocoon II was actually reasonably good; not Oscar material by any means, but better than most of the crap out there passed of as “acting”.

  • Excerpt: In the fall of 1998, Playstation owners were treated to one of the more graphically impressive and innovative titles ever released on the console. Telling the tale of Levant, a young man charged with saving the world, Jade Cocoon: The Story of Tamamayu delivered some incredibly fresh concepts to the RPG genre, mainly the ability to capture, raise, and command various monsters.

  • Excerpt: If monster-training games are your thing, then don't miss UbiSoft 's Jade Cocoon 2 for PS2. As the sequel to the highly-acclaimed title originally played on the PSX, this visually puffed-up, mechanically tricked-out, decidedly new-generation version is everything you'd expect and most of which you'd hope for in a beastie breeding, character-building, Role-Playing Game (RPG).

Jade Cocoon 2 Review

GameSpot
3 January 2002
  • Summary: Jade Cocoon 2 is much better than its predecessor, retaining and improving on its predecessor's strengths, but it lacks that special something that makes it more than the sum of its parts.
  • Pros: N/A
