    Leave it to Square to find a way to combine survival-horror and RPG elements into a gripping adventure. [Nov 2001, p.50]

    A cracking title, that's so finely tuned and crafted as well as addictive and compelling.

    If you enjoyed "Parasite Eve," be prepared for something different -- better in gameplay, but maybe not as classy in story.
  4. 80
    A challenging game that tells a good story (if you get the best ending that is). Lots of replay value and let's not forget huge full screen bosses.
  5. With an engaging story to complement the gameplay, it is only the game's problematic control and disjointed pace that keep it from scoring higher.
  6. A good sequel that would have been great if the story had more substance.
  7. More work should have been put into the plot and storytelling of the game.

It's a Masterpiece on all its forms! Great art, music, level designs, characters, backgrounds, in addition to the classic RE fixed dynamic angles, not to mention it's very addicting and highly re-playable too. Too bad most critics trashed on this game and gave it bad scores like the IGNorants!!! That's why critics sometimes CANT be Trusted which is very sad indeed. But thank you so much hardcore gamers and fans worldwide for defending and seeing through its true great values! Expand

Fun new gameplay mechanics coupled with another excellent setting, with a dash of fun side characters and a new, unique level-up and combat system combine to make a really good sequel, and just a really good game in general.
