    In the realm of today’s high-powered next-gen role-players, BOFII is an excellent time-killer—not to mention one of the better entries in the series.
  2. From the gameplay and balancing, to the visual content and story, you really couldn't ask for much more from a 16-bit RPG. [Apr 2002, p.88]
  3. The gameplay is everything you could want in an RPG. Every battle is turn-based, and they feature some of the best, most easy-to-understand menus that I have ever seen.
  4. Definitely hot stuff that hasn’t been burned too badly by the hands of time.
  5. The only blemish on the whole affair is navigating via the world map, as the small size of the GBA screen sometimes makes it a chore to find places you can dock at when riding the whale.
  6. An RPG that is screaming out for 'essential' status, but due to the complete lack of a learning gradient ends up being unnecessarily difficult and frustrating to play.
  7. Even fans of old-school RPGs will find themselves with a nagging sense of deja-vu. Disappointing. [Summer 2002, p.22]

    The gameplay is awesome, graphics are great, and the length and replay value are both above many rpgs I've played.

    the game has a good sopp story at the beginning as the hero Ryu looses his family and is sucked into a new world of darkness and evil. he the game has a good sopp story at the beginning as the hero Ryu looses his family and is sucked into a new world of darkness and evil. he must than find himself and venture through many unknowns. i give it 8.5/10 for its grapics and 7/10 for sound (as it is a little soft through most of the game) other than that if you want a longtime asboring game for your GBA, than breath of fire 2, is perfect for you.
