Drakengard 2 Review
|Doing a little dragon riding.|
Between your ground-based missions youíll face aerial missions starring Legna. It sounds exciting to command a dragon in a battle in the skies but it doesnít work out that way. You can shoot fireballs, homing fireballs, and unleash magical breath attacks. The homing fireballs are too weak to help with most enemies and the regular fireballs are too difficult to aim, so youíll find yourself avoiding this frustrating situation whenever you can and trying to simply fly past any attackers on your way to your destination. You wonít really be missing out on anything interesting as the game features an inordinate amount of combat against floating blocks for some reason. Making matters worse is that Legna does not control very well, so itís not even that much fun to just soar through the air.
The game does have some good voicework and the story is a bit interesting, but who plays action games just for the story? Itís hard to recommend this game for purchase unless you loved the original Drakengard and couldnít get enough of it. If youíre curious about it, give the game a rental and see if it can hold your interest until itís due back in the store.
In The End, This Game Hath Been Rated: 65%. A multitude of flaws takes the enjoyment out of fighting off multitudes of enemies.
