    ClaDun is a solid dungeon crawler, but it might not hold your interest for long.

    The real problem is that it's not changed. At all.

    Nippon Ichi did a great job at creating a classic world with good old fashioned gameplay.

    Regardless of these nitpicks, ClaDun X2 delivers on NIS's promise of providing twice as much stuff as in the original.

    If you're into RPGs or action RPGs you really need to check this out, especially if you never played the first game.

    With the PSP entering its twilight phase, ClaDun x2 is one of the last great games for the system. Even with the Vita on the horizon don't let this one pass you by.

    he game on average can take between twenty to forty hours to complete, but as with many other NIS titles, you can easily sink hundreds of hours into this,trying to see what all you can find in the random dungeons. It's fun, and at only $20, it's well worth the price.

    ClaDun X2's combat and world feel a bit generic and small in comparison to Quartet's masterful SNES titles and similar action-RPGs, but the customization, Magic Circle system and endless dungeons make ClaDun X2 a recommendable title for RPG-lovin' PSP owners.

    ClaDun x2 offers no improvements over to its predecessor. Though some of the graphics will probably remind you of real classics like Secret Of Mana or Zelda, the game isn't in their league. The story is the most boring since Pacman and sound track is nothing special. The gameplay though is well done and very extensive, but you will miss a good turtorial explaining it all. The freedom of the game in character design is great, too, as are the controls. Who likes monotone dungeon-crawling will like this game, but real RPG fans won't.
  10. Worth every penny. [Dec 2011, p.108]

    While the story in this classic RPG takes a backseat to the rest of the game, ClaDun x2 gives players a wealth of content to enjoy that gives a sense of what a traditional RPG should be.

    Cladun x2 picks up where the original left off, much of the same (for better and worse) but with a little more customization.

    The first Cladun was rather imaginative by my standards. Though the story was rather basic, and the gameplay at a glance was none too terribly complex, beneath the gaze of the casual observer one would find the value of their purchase. Fans of NIS certainly found themselves immersed in the grind-fest of earning magic circles, searching for artifacts and trying to make the strongest builds. This latest entry, Cladun X2, is no different. In some ways the title was scaled back a bit; the most noticeable change right from the go is you'll be designing your entire party.
