Summary: I bought this as a replacement for an old scratched version that i'd destroyed through hours of gameplay, the delivery was brilliant, I got the game on time and in Mint condition, I've finally managed to complete the game thanks to the scratch free disk :) Definitely worth the money :D.
Summary: I found this game in a sale at the same time I bought "Wild Arms 3" about 5 years ago. While, initially, I preferred that game for being a more traditional RPG, I'd actually say that Summoner 2 has stood the test of time better at being an outstanding game. Sure, there are a few cons here and there. I found it very short for an RPG (20-25 hours), the combat could get a little repetitive at times, and the story wasn't quite there for me.
Excerpt: This game is pants, the downside is it's stupid passwords that you have to solve in less than 7 secs other wise you have to start the lock over and over again. But for this I would have played this game from start to finish.
Summary: I'd played the first Summoner game and loved it. I found that to be just the right level of difficulty and played through it with no bother at all. Interesting story etc, but this review is about Summoner 2. I started the game, nice graphics, long cut screen setting the scene to the game....so far so good. I started the gameplay, you are on a ship and have to fight people coming onto the ship trying to kidnap you.
Summary: The Summoner games are some of my all-time favourites, and they are heavily underrated. I love the characters and the storylines in both, and the bonus material is hilarious. Despite the games' name, I've never really done much summoning in battle. The summons are vital to the storyline in the first game and important in the second, but you can get by just fine without using them outside of a cutscene.
Summary: This has all the characteristics of being a great game; Customisable characters Customisable coterie/band Lots of levels Decent graphics Acceptable sound Some nice little side quests Insanely hard final boss. ... and yet I found myself not enjoying the game. First off, your coteries AI is rubbish. Select melee, healer, or caster... it doesn't matter, they are still going to stand around and get pummelled.
Summary: this game is brilliant, it has everything that is needed for the follow on of the summoner. no matter what type of gamer you are you will find this game hard to put down and even so much fun you wont leave it for hours! this game has the normal leveling up system and has an unbelivable amount of weapons and armor. there is also 7 or 8 characters, one of which will suit your style of play.
Summary: The story for the second game takes place some twenty years after the first and despite a couple of characters from the first game,namely Iago and Rosalind,is completely different. Whilst Summoner is almost turn based with it's chain system number two is in real time similar to recent Phantasy Star games with face buttons performing normal attacks,or with some contorting with the fingers,combos and special moves,this works really well although the blocking is a bit hit...
Summary: A really great RPG with a brilliant storyline and quite good graphics for 2002. You play as Maia the goddess Laharah reborn, and your quest is to heal the tree of Elleh. Along the way your team will grow and you will have the ability to choose your party on each mission. If you are a lover of katanas and assasination you will pick Sangaril a munari assasin, or if you love martial arts you will choose Neru the pirate of Teomura etc.
