Journey to a floating castle in this dungeon RPG Sequel. In the Grand Duchy of High Lagaard, it is said that the Duke is descended from inhabitants of a castle in the sky. When an unforeseen crisis befalls the nation, it is decreed that the first explorer to retrieve the Grail of Kings from that mythical floating palace will be rewarded with wealth and fame beyond imagining. Enter the central city of Lagaard and begin your journey to the clouds! Etrian Odyssey II boasts an all-star development team, led by director Shigeo Komori. Composer Yuzo Koshiro returns as well, in addition to character designer Yuji Himukai and monster designer Shin Nagasawa, who both worked on the original Etrian Odyssey.

I was a big fan of the first entry into the series, and this sequel doesn't disappoint. Besides adding 3 new classes, the new FOE behavior makes for a more challenging experience overall, the power curve is very much restructured. There is a wide variety of viability in party compositions now compared to the first game (anyone who played the first knows how necessary Protectors and Medics were).

Like the first it starts off pretty brutally hard, but as you experiment it gets easier. That being said, it just isn't for everybody. If you are not patient, I could see people shutting this game off after 30 minutes and not playing it again. The early game has a lot of fighting 3-4 battles, go back to town, sell, rest, repeat until you get a few decent skills and pick away at the labyrinth. Also it can be rather hard to figure out how classes interact with each other in a party, and the level of synergy can be a bit daunting to newcomers. It also is sparse about holding your hand, which is both good and bad - good if you seek to figure things out as a gamer, bad if you get easily frustrated by any challenge in games.

This is definitely a niche game, but a worthy addition to the DS library. If you are an old school Wizardry kind of player, you'll love it. The map making is to me at least a rather fun feature - I'm unsure about people who claim map making in this series is "tedious". I often map out while in combat after making my selections, and also the addition of auto battle has been a small but great addition making under leveled random encounters a bit less effort to get through.

If nothing else, it's a game that stands on its own merits in the current market. I can't think of any RPG I've played in this generation of gaming which stands out the way this series does (despite admittedly being an update to the truly old school CPRGs).

I just finished the first Etrian Odyssey and thought I was going to start a new game on it just so I wouldn't of gone through withdrawals, and then a friend tells me there is an Etrian Odyssey II!!! So I bought it right away.

If you haven't played an Etrian Odyssey game yet, it is a fun RPG that has you take 5 characters out and about fighting monsters, mapping a multi-level labrinth, finding treasures, and fulfilling missions and quests. You don't need to play the first one to enjoy this game, in fact this game gives you more of a tutorial as you go through for new people.

I really like the mapping feature, at first I thought it was dumb but then I found it really keeps me going, I want to keep seeing how the map will turn out on each floor. And the mapping tools are improved on this version, there are now more icons to use, including three different colors of item points (you can chop, mine or take in this game to collect things to sell or use) and there is now a open door and locked door icons, for those special doors that need a key.

Other new features I like - if you forget what you need to do for a quest, you can find out in your quest menu exactly what it is. Also in the store, you can look at your characters as you look at the weapons for sale and see how they would improve with a new weapon without having to go to "eqiup". Probably my favorite new feature is when you go to the custom list - this is how you upgrade your characters whenever you get a new skill point for them - the skills that are not available now show a prerequisite feature on the side, telling you which skills you need to add before you can aquire the skill. In the first game, some of the skills I wanted I could never figure out how to get to them.

This is definitely a game that does not apply to everyone. It is an old-school style pen and paper dungeon crawling RPG, except in place of the pen and paper you use your DS. You map out the dungeons on your bottom screen while exploring the dungeon on the top. Monsters appear which you have to fight, all of which are creative and very well designed. There are of course bosses, quests, and many many types of character classes to choose from!

If you are looking for an RPG that will last you a long long while, and will keep you hooked the whole time, look no further. If you played the first Etrian Odyssey and liked it at ALL you definitely need to check this one out.

They made quite a few improvements over the previous version, the graphics of course are a little enhanced, they have all new character classes, weapons, items, and more. Of course all new dungeons and monsters. The mapping system now has more icons you can use which come in VERY handy in the more complex dungeons. Many tweaks and various improvements have been made to make it feel great overall.

Lastly, the soundtrack is AMAZING, one of my favorite soundtracks for any hand-held system by far, and even rivaling some of it's larger and more powerful counterpart's soundtracks.

For what this game sets out to do it is AMAZING, and I thank Atlus so much for bringing over and doing a great job with the localization. Definitely give this game a look!

This game has made no effort at all to be accessable to the general public. It will not bring new fans to the gaming world. It will not convert gamers who like other gaming styles, like real time strategy. Clearly it was made by, and for, hardcore role players. I mean the real hardcore, not the wannabe hardcore. Seriously, if you have never played an RPG before, or if you think that Diablo was an RPG, try Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest instead.

That said, by golly, there is no more authentic RPG on any platform. Lots of stats, lots of reloading after your whole party was wiped out, lots of items, lots of monsters (many of them willing and able to kick your sweet patootie). And just in case you thought it might be a little too forgiving, you make your own maps here. I mean it, it's not an option, it is how you do it. Keh. Bwahahaha.

This is for the few, the proud, the nerdy, the un-math-challenged, and the very, very, patient.

I love it.

PS: Wait a sec. I'm trying to get over certain materialistic tendancies, so let me amend.

I *love* my wife.

I *like* this game.

A lot. I do. <sigh>
