An Incredible Sleeper Hit

Wow. Having playing the first Swordcraft Story (and getting hooked on the gameplay), I immediately rented this game. When I recieved it in the mail, I opened it and inserted it into my DS.

I didn't put it down for the next 16 hours.

The game improves on the first, a GREAT game in its own right, in every way. Gone is the annoying resource system. Included is a system where old weapons can be melted down to make new weapons stronger than weapons made from scratch.

The storyline is a bit blase, but the characters are well developed and keep you playing to see what happens next. The in-game choices, multiple characters, and multiple endings make for hours of replayability; this is made easier by options that are unlocked by beating the game, such as exporting weapons and money from a saved game into a new game.

The gameplay is GREAT. Battles are fast paced and give rewards that make you want to see out fights; your character gains levels quickly enough where it feels like you're making good progression; stat points can be assigned by you, making your character feel like your own.

I'd like to put in a special note about the dialogue; the translators over at Atlus did a great job. The game is full of humor and cute moments; the awkward 'romances' are cutesy enough without being cloying. Just a reat job all around.

My reveiw may not be as good as this other one but Summon Night: Swordcraft Story 2 is an awsome game. Personally, I thought it got a little tough in the beggining but after I leveled up a little the game got addicting. So I highly reccomend this game to all those RPG lovers out there.
