    One of my personal favorite GBA games of all time. Expanding on what the first game did in every feasible way, Boktai 2 is the peak of the series. Boktai 2 is an action adventure game, presented from an overhead isometric view. Within the game you progress through a series of areas each punctuated by a boss. While the formula may seem pretty standard, with the games use of actual real world sunlight, you have a game that is affected by the world you play it in. Playing at sunset? Expect to feel panicked and rushed. Playing on an overcast day? Expect the bosses to be at their strongest, and the possibility of rain in the game.

    Boktai 2 deserves a place in your gaming library, if only because there's nothing else like it.

    This game is a great sequel, it builds on the characters, Sabata even has a more distinctive sprite! Some of the plot twists were expected, but some weren't and caught me completely unprepared. This game is fantastic! I recommend it heartily!

  1. This more expansive and finely tuned sequel takes all that was great about its predecessor and finesses the formula while losing none of the charm. [Dec 2004, p.108]
  2. The transition between the Gun del Sol and the multiple weapons is decent, implementing a slew of new features necessary to see you through the game unscathed.
  3. Fans of adventure games who don't find block-pushing and switch-flipping tiresome will enjoy a long-lasting challenge, as will fans of the original. Everyone else, however, should approach with caution. [Aug 2005, p.118]
