This game sucks. I mean, wow does this game suck. The original game was a fun, if plot hole filled adventure where you get to fight half-elf robot suited angels with swords! Awesome! Sadly, this game lacks that awesome factor. It lacks the beloved cast of the original game. It lacks a friggin' over world screen. My God this game is bad.
The original game ended ambiguously, with the two worlds merged into one, by Lloyd and his friends. Given that the game ends with the two worlds having just been merged, one would assume that the sequel would begin would begin Lloyd and company helping to integrate the two worlds. Wrong! Instead we begin several months later, after an event called the Blood Purge, where Lloyd went on a killing spree in the city of Palmacosta, under orders from the Church of Martel. Unfortinetly for the viewer, Lloyd fails to kill the games "male" "protagonist", Emil Castagnier.
If you thought Lloyd was an interesting protagonist with a fun to use combat style, prepare to be dissapointed, because Emil sucks. Oh wow does he suck. The androgynous Emil is one of the whiniest, whimpiest, weakest protagonists ever. Everything out of his mouth is about how he hates Lloyd for killing his family.
1. Lloyd wouldn't do this, he'd either be under mind control, or it was just someone else disguised as him.
2. Lloyd just saved the world kid. Shut the fuck up.
Through a series of stupid plot contrivances, Emil get's roped into going on a stupid journey to save the world that's oddly similar to the quest of the first game. And by oddly, I mean the exact same. He get's appointed the protector of Marta Lualdi, another character I want to bludgeon, who is attempting to awaken Ratatosk, a summon spirit who oddly wasn't mentioned in the last game. They travel with the Centurion Tenebrae, easily my favorite character, who spends his free time reminding Emil just what a loser he is. Emil also awakens a second personality, dubbed Ratatosk mode by his companions, and Wife-Beater Emil by me. Wife-Beater Emil is no better then the other Emil, dubbed Whiny-Bitch by me, due to being a stuck up asshole.
Their are more things I could complain about, such as the combat, graphics, or awful voice acting, but this review has a 400 word limit. Let me just say this. I got this game for free from a friend. I still over paid.
