  1. AllDreamcast
    60
    An almost complete lack of gameplay, very cheesy dialog, and a whole lot of boring repetition keep Kenji Eno's latest creation from being anything more than a complete dud, which could be what the D stands for (just kidding... I think).
  2. Antagonist
    65
    Horrible battle scenes, fractured gameplay, touch-and-go storyline.
  3. Da Gameboyz
    72
    Although the game is short in terms of playability and has some glaring flaws it still earns a joystick up from this reviewer.
  4. The desolate landscapes and depressing feeling of isolation from normal everyday existence that Laura Parton goes through, slaying mutants and eating bunnies, is felt more in this Dreamcast title than in the non-stop action feast that Claire Redfield goes through in Capcom's "Resident Evil: Code Veronica."
  5. 70
    Taken with a healthy dose of tolerance, D-2 really shouldn't be a bad game to add to your collection..
  6. Things take too long, RPG elements are vague and control is quite weak - but if you're prepared to put up with it then you gain access to rather a good story and cinematic adventure.
  7. Kenji Eno has created one of the most engaging stories of all time and given it support in every way possible, except the one that matters most: gameplay.
  8. Scary it ain't, but D2's got its morbid charms.
  9. 62
    Ends up with all the worst aspects of a badly translated foreign film -- it doesn't quite make sense, the lips never sync up right, and the pacing will bore you to tears.

There is something that I just cannot explain, and probobly cannot This game, this story , this atmosphere is just very mystical an engaging. There is something that I just cannot explain, and probobly cannot be explained in words. Although the gameplay isnt great, what is great about this game is the story, music and atmosphere. There is just something mystical about this title. If you look past the flaws of the gameplay, this is a masterpiece. Full Review »
