    Loses a lot of the JRPG focus and seems to be conflicted with trying to be a point-and-click adventure game. Tedious pixel hunting quests, overly difficult QTE combat, and a boring story with little focus really kills the potential this game had. Although it continues off from the previous game (game mechanic and level-wise), you lose all your old skills for some reason.

Although it continues off from the previous game (game mechanic and level-wise), you lose all your old skills for some reason. More frustration comes from a long fetch quest chain that rewards you with a jail cell. Combat is absurd with enemies getting mountains of health plus free "interrupt" heals, removing strategy from combat and requiring you to just pile everything onto one enemy at time. The last boss is a multi-part "gimme" fight, that ends in a lame adventure game last fight that requires no skill and cuts out your party. Overall this was really disappointing, boring and tedious. Just pick up the first one and pretend ep2 doesn't exist, like a Bioware game. Expand

    The type of game that makes you want to dust off that green felt cloak and curl up with a sack of dice.
  2. Episode Two is still thoroughly ridiculous and amusing, but compared to the first episode it pales, feeling much more like a stop-gap than a fully-fledged follow-up.
  3. The PSN has already seen several fantastic additions this year (Wipeout HD and echochrome are two examples), and although this one isn’t quite amongst the elite, it’s still well worth your time.
