    One of the great games i ever play, drakengard series must still live for more decades. Epic soundtrack, epic and emotional characters and epic finals!!

    Incredible. The combat is brilliant, the levelling up fun, and the only problem is some occasionally frustrating arial ( sp?) battles. One for RPG lovers, but if its your thing, you wont be dissapointed.

    First one was wicked but second one improved everything that needed improving.......player involvement, gameplay, speed, movement, n a blossoming romance for good measure! one of those marmite games..........you either love it hate it. I have quite high standards for games n this met them and more. Near perfection.

    Pretty damm good, the ground gameplay, which still very basic isn't painful like the first game and the dragon combat is still fantastic, Dank music as well. Doesn't really deserve a 10 in the slightest but this game is never shown any love so why not.

  1. The graphics are really basic for a PS2 game, but the cinematics look incredible. The on-foot mode is just plain boring, ... and most of the game concentrates on that mode, sadly. [JPN Import]
  2. Game Informer
    From a gameplay standpoint, this is probably more aptly called "Drakengard 1.5" rather than a full sequel, but the improvements make the series' tantalizing mix of big action and dragon airfights much more playable than the first. [Mar 2006, p.106]

    Almost a mirror image of the first game, which is both good and bad. While it has a great story, it also suffers from some of the cardinal sins of action gaming. You'd think that by adding a kick-ass dragon in to the mix that you'd be dealing with a winning formula. It's just too bad, however, that this doesn't end up being the case.
