    An absolute beauty of a game... This is hardcore RPG dungeon crawling at its best! Also, a BIG improvement on the original!
    Only possible let down (not a big one, though) is that in this installment the F.O.E.s (not the big bosses, but the mini-bosses) don't give your characters any experience points, so there is no motivation to kill more than a couple of each kind to get the special
    item drops... Also, I did like the character art better on the first one, especially the non-playable character portraits. But, overall, it is better than the original!
    Warning: this type of games are an acquired taste... Platformer and FPS gamers need not apply! (Unless you want to try something REALLY different.)

  1. Etrian Odyssey 2 isn't very ambitious, but it's still plenty of fun. [July 2008, p.88]
  2. This sequel feels like the original game on expert mode - and that's a good thing. [July 2008, p.81]

    Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard is everything you loved about the original, except even better.
