    The original Summoner was, and continues to be, one of my all time favourite games.

    This 'sequel' in a sense does it justice. It continues to be a very fun game, complete with an interesting story and a correspondingly intricate lore/mythos to accompany it. The game's main downfall is of course the combat system, which usually results in button mashing. The combat itself is still a

    The game's main downfall is of course the combat system, which usually results in button mashing. The combat itself is still a large improvement over the original's robotic d-pad button pushing however, and is still largely quite enjoyable.

    The other downfalls include the very linear game progression, some small bugs and how sick of Queen Maia you are by the end of the game.

    Overall a great PS2 title, definitely worth a play.

  1. Summoner 2 is to the original Summoner what a case of shower grout is to a clogged drainpipe full of hair.
  2. Animation-wise, what's here is nice, and the models are very good, but Maia especially needs more variety. [Nov 2002, p.85]
  3. Packing a solid plot, creative elements not really seen in RPGs, and tons of action, Volition looks to have another hit on their hands.
