  1. By evening out the presentation and focusing the story, New Vision transforms the Eureka Seven series from painful to playable.
  2. This sequel simply didn't need to happen. [June 2007, p.80]
  3. Eureka 7 Vol. 2: The New Vision suffers from a plethora of problems, ranging from bad combat, to a corny story, to a bunch of un-fixed bugs. As an interactive anime, however, you're getting ~5 hours or so of new video about the Eureka 7 universe.
  4. We can’t think of any good reason to spend time with Eureka 7 Vol. 2. Even if the story intrigues you, you’ll have to suffer through the rest of the game to see it. It’s just not worth it.
  5. Despite the differing game play, at least one element remains shared between the various situations and scenarios of Eureka Seven Vol. 2: boredom. With no real skill required to complete the simple challenges, most gamers will breeze through the dull segments given enough time and button mashing, leaving them to question the point in repeating those same bits of play over and over again.
  6. 37
    With all of the gameplay here being decidedly sub-par, the third volume should just scrap any remnants of gameplay and become one long, non-interactive cutscene. Put it onto a DVD and charge fans of the show $10 to get more of their fix, but for the love of that is good in gaming just don't make a game out of it.
  7. Who actually thought this would be a game that people want to play? Everything about it, from the dialogue to the story to the action are so wholly worthless that I'd be surprised if it didn't outright piss fans of the series off rather than service them.
