Much improved over the first game.
It picks up exactly where the first game ended.
Much better combat, the graphics are better (but still not as good as the Dreamcast could handle).
It’s just as weird as the first game, but plays better. I actually appreciated the first game more after playing this one, as they interconnect quite nicely. It answers questions unanswered in the first. And does so pretty satisfyingly too.
It’s no Final Fantasy, or Grandia 2, but it’s still a competent rpg worth exploring for yourself.
