Conclusion: Veterans of the genre will probably find little new here to entice them, although if you really don’t care, then by all means try this out. Ironically, this game may actually be a good candidate to introduce newcomers to the genre as well, as there’s little complexity or overtly confusing about this...
Excerpt: The original MagnaCarta was very inventive and complex, but it’s this complexity that got in the way of offering a quality game and proved to be its major undoing.

Excerpt: I am struck straight away by how much I will like or dislike a lot of games. Occasionally, games will turn my opinion, but it doesn't happen very often. However, what happened to me with Magnacarta 2 is unique - even after playing it, I can't tell you whether or not I actually like this game.
Excerpt: Originally released on the PS2, Magna Carta: Tears of Blood was a beautiful RPG that was hyped back in the day to be able to give Final Fantasy X a run for its money. However, the game received mediocre reviews as the title had a tedious battle system and felt largely unbalanced.
Excerpt: First things first, this was never truly clear in any of the materials on the game: the Magna Carta series has nothing to do with the historical document signed by King John of England in 1215.
Conclusion: Magna Carta 2 does nothing particularly remarkable and some parts leaves a lot to be desired but it nails the fundamentals enough to become addicting. If you like JRPGs and need some time to hold you over for a certain big title next year, this one will fill the void.
