  1. 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.

    Complex enough for dedicated gamers who want an absorbing adventure. [Apr 2002, p.152]
  3. The story is almost insulting until nearly the end, I didn’t like the characters, and combat was by and large pretty boring with all too many encounters.

    Even fans of old-school RPGs will find themselves with a nagging sense of deja-vu. Disappointing. [Summer 2002, p.22]

    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.

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