  1. With beautiful music and great visuals, this is one sleeper hit no one should miss.
  2. It's bigger, prettier, and ultimately more of the same.
  3. Long lived and varied and offers a decent challenge without been frustratingly difficult.
  4. The game is longer, the gameplay is more fun and flowing and the main character is a bit more interesting. The only parts requiring more work are the story, the visual interface and the camera.
  5. Entertaining though Lost Kingdoms can be when it's raising two fingers to RPG convention, it's still blighted by conventional RPG problems.
  6. A glimmer of the first game's superb design and balance remains underneath these missteps, but the bottom line is that instead of building upon the solid foundation from the first game, they undermined it.
  7. With battling monsters and cards to collect this is really just another Pokemon game in disguise and not a very good disguise at that. Come on Nintendo, your slip is showing.

I wonder why people are sometimes so harsh when evaluating it. It has great playability, very good graphics and nice sound. There are more than 200 creatures to be collected (vampires, banshees, lizard knights...) and used in battle and the game's areas look really nice. Every RPg lover should have this game; it is loads better than Lost Kingdoms I (to me, the first installment would have a 78% score, while Lost Kingdoms II would have a 87% score) Expand
