- Summary: Sony's long-awaited first-party title which mixes several existing genres and game ideas, Dark Cloud puts the player into the role of young Toan, who is chosen by a Fairy King to help bring the world back into order after it had destroyed by the recently summoned "Dark Genie" or "Black Demon."
10Once upon a time, this game was possibly the best I had ever played. Many fond memories of the characters, the towns, the weapon system, and even the enormously lengthly and tall Demon Shaft to get the Chronicle 2 sword(the best sword in the game). Of course I couldn't go back to it today, however I still say this was one of the best games I've played to date that could keep me entertained for such a long period of time. For the memories alone I give this game a 10/10. Dark Cloud was amazing and always will be in the hearts of those who enjoyed it.
To those in 2008 and later, do keep in mind this game is very old and shouldn't be compared to what we have today.… Expand
CamK.8The gameplay was great at first, but got a little monotonous. It was still pretty fun, though, with the georama stuff and the weapon buildup options. Overall, a great game worth the money.… Expand
This game at first felt like a blatant Zelda ripoff, then I picked it up again a couple years later to try it out again. I thought I might have judged it too quickly.
Nope. This game is just not that fun. What is the point of having my weapons break every five minutes if the game doesn't give me the availability of the repair powder? You have to find the shop in the dungeons before you can buy anything, which means no help in getting healing and repair supplies. The game is also very tedious. Why did Sony think it was a good idea to have randomly generated dungeons? Overall, very monotonous, story doesn't make much sense to me, gameplay is aggravating and the controls are awkward.… Expand
SeanM.4I was not excited one bit about Dark Cloud. I thought the game looked great from the package and heard great reviews. Sadly, I ended up trading this game because it lacked in the "fun factor." After awhile it got tiring and not as great as it was rated in top magazines. DARK CLOUD gets the McNair thumbs down!… Expand
