Lost Kingdoms II
Lost Kingdoms 2 (GC)
The story utilizes a rather common series of plot threads, but it is well paced to make up for its reliance on plot threads such as the evil king out to conquer the world.
This game is a rather simple action adventure game where you run around slinging cards to attack your enemies. Your cards come in four varieties such as summons, weapons, independents, and transformation cards. Each of these cards will prove useful in different situations, but the weapon cards will become your bread and butter considering how durable many of the enemies are. You can also hold the z button and press on of the card buttons to double its strength. This effect can also be used to activate combo attacks that can devastate your enemies.
The graphics are solid, though there are a few places where you can see areas you weren't meant to. The best place to experience this is on a transform power up point in Bhasea Castle if you utilize a character that can jump.
A solid soundtrack marred with rather sub par voice acting, but if your used to RPGs then your probably use to terrible voice acting and won't mind it.
The game offers a lot of stuff to do on the side such as upgrading cards, extra areas to explore, and extra bosses to take down. The game even offers an area called the proving grounds to explore after you beat the main game.
Lasting Appeal: 9
lost kingdoms 2 is a great game it contains monsters, cards and, a good storyline it goes from a small set of weak monster cards to a cool supreme amount of hundreds of awesome monsters. The game starts out as a girl who got kicked out of her home and later gets adopted by a gang of thieves. the games starts in a mansion being raided by the thieves and are attacked by monsters so the girl pulls out a card and starts killing the monsters with it and she finds a couple cards then the next level she goes up against some slow but strong plants and a ogre and next level actually a city and thats all i remember of the game because last time i played it was about three years ago and havent played it since. but the game is awsome and i recommend it to anyone.
A much better sequel to its predecessor Lost Kingdoms, LK 2 has more going for it including a better battle system where you can choose to fight most monsters or just leave them alone, reusable levels, and a much longer game. You can even unlock levels and change the ending of the game depending on whether or not you revisit certain areas. One of the best aspects of this game is the music. Being able to revisit areas and avoid monsters allows you to save your cards for the boss or find that fairy you overlooked! This game is for those who liked the first game and didn't mind the difficulty of the battle system too much. The ONLY reason why I don't give this game a 10 is because it should've been at least twice as long as it was. I was kinda sad when I got near the end. Here's hoping for a MUCH LONGER sequel on the Wii or Wii U.
Not as good as the first, but still very fun.
It's an adventure/card game. Instead of being turn based you actually summon the monsters or use the monster as a weapon. A really great game.
