    Ash II: Shadows is a competent JRPG with an unusual tone, but it's not especially compelling.

    There's nothing special about Ash II. It has no glaring flaws – just a few foibles that are somewhat annoying – but by that same token, there is nothing really special about it, either.

    I like the story and want to see more of it, but I want the systems to get more engaging before plopping out more cash, especially because it's so easy to see that the fundamentals are already in place. Ash II: Shadows is an improved game over the original in many ways, but until some tweaks are made and we see how the rest of the episodes shake out it's hard to gauge if it's ultimately an overall better experience.

    Where Ash II falls down is in the combat.

    Ash II: Shadows is a mixed bag of witty dialogue, interesting story, nice 16-bit graphics, technical issues with the sound, too little challenge and too little character development. I think those who have already invested time in the first game should consider continuing.
