  • Summary: Centuries after the first Cocoon Master Levant purified the wicked Forest Minions and freed his village from a sleep curse, this tale tells the story of a new deadly parasite called Kalma. Kahu, a fledgling Cocoon Master, must now brave the four elemental forests and seek the Orbs of Cocoon Masters past, before Kalma overtakes him and the earth. Within the quest for the four Orbs lies a unique battle system where players can capture hundreds of monsters and train them to become their greatest weapons. Join Kahu and his trusty companion, Nico, on their journey to rid the land of menacing monsters, find the magical Orbs and defeat the deadly Kalma. [Ubi Soft] Collapse

    Different, rewarding, intelligent, funny, and filled with memorable characters and weird creatures. It’s damn fun, too, and will keep you performing the repetitive duties required of a monster raiser for far longer than you’d ever imagine.
  2. Never has there really been a game that allows you to have so much control over breeding monsters and hatching eggs, it truly is a unique experience. Some RPG goers might not like the shallow storyline.
  3. A beautiful game that manages to have the appeal of its predecessor and winds up being both frustrating and addicting at the same time.
  4. 70
    Both the weak storyline and repetitive dungeons become tedium personified before you know it.
  5. Despite our disdain of the very concept of this game we did find it fairly engrossing.
  6. Visually appealing and highly addictive
  7. JC2 shows promise initially, but a quirky sense of humor and an endearing fairy sidekick aren't enough to save it from becoming repetitive.

    A good game that really does its own thing. At the time, this was a rather unique concept that really was allot of fun. However, I did find the game did get very repetitive the longer you played it. With a few more side activities and more in game mechanics, it could have been better. But, as it is, it still good and allot of fun.

    Overall:
    A different, but good game, that perhaps is better played in small doses.
