    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]

    May not be as revolutionary as the original, but it's still a solid gaming experience and a good bridge between the gaming world and reality. [Dec 2004, p.132]
  3. The game play of this title is superb, if a bit difficult at times. It has a distinctive "Metal Gear" style of stealth action (indeed, you can even tap on walls ala Solid Snake and distract enemies) blended with fast paced hand-to-hand combat and some mildly amusing block puzzles.

    A clever use of AI makes it possible for you to influence enemies with sight and sound. [Nov 2004, p.131]

    It's a must-have for enthusiastic fans of the original, who will easily recognize the quality beneath the hostile surface. Everyone else may want to proceed with caution, though, because you'll probably be too busy having your butt kicked to have a good time.

    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]
  7. But the control configuration is cumbersome to use. For the most part the graphics are solid, but some of the environment's background elements are shoddy.

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.
