    While I can’t recommend it to everyone, if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind a punishing grind and some badly designed mechanics, there’s a lot to love under the surface.

    As with their past work, Genius Sonority has interesting ideas that regularly get in their own way. Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Wave’s no different and the iteration never comes together. It makes only a bit of forward progress with eShop’s limitations putting strain on the potential. They came by wave and so they went.

    Although I badly want to like The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves more than I do, the honest truth is that it's a hell of a lot of work for a game that's basically nothing but grinding through dungeons. If the difficulty and frequency of encounters were just a bit lower, the insanely high cute factor would be able to carry the experience and I probably would have powered through. Instead, it's way, way too much effort for too little return—my patience and stamina wore out long before the credits rolled.

    Beyond just the fact that it’s a little boring to play, there are also the weird problems to deal with, and the game’s charm is nowhere near enough to make up for them. Even when you’re playing, it does so much of taking care of itself that I started to wonder why I’m even playing this when it can so easily play itself.

    This game is really good. It takes what was awesome from the first one and evolves from there. Now you can equip your Denpas and actuallyThis game is really good. It takes what was awesome from the first one and evolves from there. Now you can equip your Denpas and actually watch them wear everything you equip on them. You can travel the land as if you were playing those amazing rpgs from 15 years ago.

    I haven't finished it, but I'm can't put it down either. If you are looking for a unique experience and good rpg game, this one is for you.

    This game is really fun and challenging at the same time, I enjoyed playing this game a lot and if you have a 3ds, I would consider getting this game.
