Product Information
This sequel to Atlus' 2007 release Etrian Odyssey tells the story of the flooded Grand Duchy of High Lagaard, ruled by a duke rumored to be a descendant of the chosen ones who inhabit the mysterious castle in the sky. When a crisis cripples the nation, a call goes out to all explorers willing to go on an adventure to the great castle to retrieve the Grail of the Kings. A lifetime of fame and wealth will greet those who successfully return.

Like it's predecessor, Etrian Odyssey II is a dungeon-heavy role-playing game inspired by its traditional pen-and-paper forebears. By using the touch screen and stylus, gamers can chart their progress through dungeons, and map out halls, chambers, treasures, and pitfalls. The roster of character classes has been expanded from nine to 12, and players can customize their characters' name, sex, skills, and spells. Though dungeon crawling is the primary focus, more than 100 side-quests help give gamers a varied experience every time they play.

    If you have played the first installment of this game and enjoyed it, you will like this even more. If you haven't, buy it anyway, it's superb! As you travel through the labyrinth, you map your progress on the way. You can make notes about traps, monsters and so forth.
    Every Atlus game I've played is a winner as far as I'm concerned, it's such a shame they don't sell much in europe. Of course the DS games can be bought from the USA, or anywhere, and played in the UK.

    Better than the first

    Created: 24/06/10
    So I've had this game for about a week and I just reached the 8th floor. I gotta say, this game improves on the weaknesses of the first Etrian Odyssey. First off, the first floor monsters were much more difficult at the beginning. There was one monster I kept running into that was strong enough to one-hit kill one of my level 3 guys at full health! That provided a greater challenge early on.

    Another improvement is how damage is done. Let me explain what I mean. In the first EO, when you attacked a monster, it would do damage in a range based on weapon attack and strength, like between 45 and 50 damage. In EO2, each character does the same amount of damage against the same creature based on weapon attack and strength, like EXACTLY 47 damage each time. This is better because it allows the player to better determine which character can attack which.

    The trading center has been improved as well. You can sell multiple copies of the same item by pressing Y instead of selling each individual item. Instead of selling your 5 rat needles one at a time, just press Y and they will all be sold at once. Saves time. Also, when you're buying equipment, the touch screen shows what your characters are already equipped with, as well as what they can equip and any stat boosts. MUCH more convenient.

    Even though I've only gotten to the 8th floor, as I've said, I highly recommend this game to anyone who's played the first Etrian Odyssey, you won't be disappointed.

    P.S. this was my first review, what do you think?

    Without a doubt, Etrian Odyssey is one of the most unique and bold game designs we've seen on DS since its launch. In a generation of gaming where people are talking about the "death of hardcore," and where Wii Sports is enough to topple Microsoft's killer 360 library, it takes serious guts – and impressive execution – to not only attempt something made directly for the most aged and traditional gamer type, but to do it well. Mini-maps are commonplace now days, with auto saving and easy "repeat from checkpoint" gaming basically escorting players from beginning to end like an interactive movie, rather than an actual challenge. That's not the style of Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard, and as our industry starts to lean more and more towards the new "everyone's a gamer" philosophy, we're realizing more that if you are in fact traditional in taste, there are only a few key games that truly aim specifically towards you. Etrian Odyssey is without a doubt one of those games.
