5.0 out of 5 stars PlayStation 2's first AAA of 2003..., 26 May 2003
This review is from: Dark Chronicle (PS2) (Video Game)
Finally, Sony have come up with the goods - a game to rival Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
Dark Chronicle is the sequel to 2001's Dark Cloud, a fairly basic but engaging action-RPG with a unique "Diorama" village-building system. The sequel enhances this aspect to near-perfection, aslo inmproving weapon upgrading. A great new innovation of this game is the invention process - you can take pictures of various objects, combine images to create an idea, then the invention develops from thsi idea. It can get complex, but it is highly engrossing.
Combat is real-time, swords and sorcery affair, similar to The Legend of Zelda but with some magic. Combat is fluid, with a nice range of moves - also it can get repetitive at times, but like Kingdom Hearts, there's enough variety to keep you going.
Graphically, developer Level-5 have excelled themselves...Dark Chronicle is stunning, one of the best looking games of this current generation. It uses the oh-so-popular cel-shaded technique, but it works extremely well.
Dark Chronicle is a wonderful game, one of the best RPGs available for this generation of consoles. Level-5 have done a great job of improving the original concept to near perfection. Roll on Dark Cloud 3!!!
