  • Summary: (Also known as "Kagero 2: Dark Illusion") Set in old Europe, the player takes on the role of the seductive Queen Allura, who after being framed for her father's murder, is forced to flee the castle to take refuge from those that are out to kill her. Allura, along with her maid Rachel, escape(Also known as "Kagero 2: Dark Illusion") Set in old Europe, the player takes on the role of the seductive Queen Allura, who after being framed for her father's murder, is forced to flee the castle to take refuge from those that are out to kill her. Allura, along with her maid Rachel, escape to the Black Forest, where an evil spell from the devil transforms Allura into a trap master, an evil temptress that uses deadly traps to avenge her enemies. Returning to the castle with the devil as her guide and on a mission of vengence, Allura uses her wicked strategy and skill to set up gruesome medieval traps to lure her enemies in and then destroy them. The game is equal parts action and strategy that will have gamers thinking in the most evil and manipulative ways to create the ultimate combination of traps in order to distinguish their enemies. Play as the sexy and beguiling Queen Alllura who looks so sweet, but is wickedly calculating and cursed by the devil.Full-View Map: Set up your traps via a full-view map of the castle. A Variety of Modes and Bonus Content: Play in Story Mode or Survival Mode, plus enjoy an even deeper story when you play in the Bonus Story Mode. [Tecmo] Expand

    By far the most worthy of mention, though, are the Dark Illusions. These are giant setpiece traps which cause horrifying damage in even more horrifying ways, and have secret (and often bloody obscure) conditions for their activation.
  2. It offers a nice mix of strategy (almost reminiscent of Dynasty Tactic's "push, attack, push, attack" combo system) and action where timing plays a crucial role.
  3. The story may be as dull as dirt and the graphics may lack a satisfying level of detail, but there's no denying that Trapt (and its three predecessors) provide a crazy sort of skewed gameplay that simply can't be had anywhere else. Very few projects actually make me laugh out loud with maniacal glee, but this was one.
  4. With such a tediously unengaging storyline, vanilla locations, rubbish camera system and an all-round feel of technical impoverishment, what you're left with is a game that's certainly fun, original and hugely engaging for a while, but one that fails to live up to its early promise.
  5. A feast for creative quirk-seekers; a famine for lazy mainstreamers. [Dec 2005, p.130]
  6. Trapt is a novel effort, but it just doesn't try hard enough, and that much is blatantly obvious in the enemy AI, the environments and the translation.

    The game needed more blood for one thing. The traps were limited unlike the other Deception games. The storyline S.U.C.K.S.!!! The strategy The game needed more blood for one thing.
