Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars
The graphics are amazing!
I got this game the day it came out and I still am obsessing over it! The story line is out of this world amazing and has great twists. The voice acting, I think, is awesome. A lot of the voices are from Anime dubs such as Naruto and Bleach. I love dating sims and RPGs so this game was made for me. The fighting and story line are separated perfectly, you never get bored of it. When I was playing on the plane it peeked the interest of the person next to me, it is a great conversation starter. All in all one of my favorite games currently.
This game has an interesting pitch: mixing dating sims with dungeon crawling. I enjoy both, so I was incredibly eager to play this- especially given that the artwork for this was so enticing. The game is easy to learn and the dating aspect is incredibly forgiving, as it's very difficult for people to truly mess up their relationships with the girls. The dungeon crawling is decent and I like that each girl has different strengths. What hurts this is how repetitive the gameplay is. Everyone expects dungeon crawlers to be repetitive to a degree but the need to level up each generation of Star Children (and you will have to make many and liberate them in order to level up the city) will require that you take multiple trips through the dungeons you've already cleared. It just gets old after a while and this especially hurts replay value. I can also see where the criticisms over the game's more risque overtones are coming from. The classmating aspect claims it isn't doing the do, but it's in the "totally not referring to you-know-what but it's really totally referring to you-know-what" sense. Some of the cutscenes are a little much and rather than be risque or tongue in cheek, they're just a little tiresome. If the rest of the game were amazing then it wouldn't be an issue, but the game overall is just a little too bland. I'd recommend it for some, but this game will probably just be overly forgettable to anyone looking for a more serious dating sim or dungeon crawler game.
Happy April Fool's Birthday to me!
I'm very excited that Conception II will be making it Stateside, as the first Conception never made it outside of Japan. Indeed, I'll be pre-ordering the 3DS version -- a week-late birthday present to myself. Any fans of Persona 1 and 2 might want to check this out, as it has been compared to the older Persona games. This will also be available for the Vita, but I'll be getting the 3DS version for sure.
Counting down the days
Found out about this game 1-2 months ago and been excited for it's release date...I'm a really big fan of Japanese RPGs and If you're looking for dungeoning/leveling and building relations with friends and having interactive chats with them from time to time, this is a game you should think about getting sooner or later. :3
Conception II, the name says it all!
For the first thing it is called Conception II if the name does not catch your attention then I not know what will. The game sounds like it could be crazy awesome and add in the pre-order bonus, well it is near impossible to resist.
I do agree with another buzz that this looks like it will be a lot like Persona 4 and others in the persona series and the idea and concept behind it is wonderfully new for a video game especially on the ps vita and 3DS I have both systems and I am getting it for both, so that I can compare them.
I look very forward to giving a post play review of both systems of the game.
made by atlus
if its made by atlus id give a shot despite the questionable name ATLUS has yet to let me down see no reason they should start now
This game has exceeded my expectations in every way! Crazy concept, raunchy humor, unique battle system, fun character interactions, great English Dub, and a catchy soundtrack! I'm happy that Atlus took a chance on this game because it totally paid off. It's great to see more Spike Chunsoft games coming to the West. Also to those thinking about buying the game avoid looking at the professional reviews as they are highly biased and a very inaccurate representation of just how fun the game is.
Not enough story, and too easy for my taste.
I can only comment on what I have experienced so far, which is just over 20 hours into the game. The graphics are excellent, especially the characters. The sound is good. Some tracks I'm not too fond of, but nothing is offensively bad. The combat system is excellent, and different from anything I have seen before, but for me it has been so easy that I hardly need to use skills. Also I have just now started seeing the need to execute any sort of strategy in ordinary battles. I am no difficulty freak, but I do like to have to have some challenge. The story is excellent, but there simply isn't enough of it for me. The game seems to introduce a plot device and leave it alone instead of fleshing it out properly. The flaws I have pointed to have shown signs of improvement, I hope that continues.
I love this Game! It's really appealing to both Casual and Hard Core gamers alike. I'm surprised it was rated "M" though. The some scenes are suggestive, but still appropriate for 14 year olds.
Should have stayed in Japan.
why would a game that will be M-rated and has such a gross idea be released on a Nintendo Platform; better yet why didn't Conception 1 leave Japan? I don't know the anwser to that but this is GROSS ! it would hjave been better releasing in the US ten years after it's original release like RockMan & Forte. if yyou want to pre-order a good RPG wait until pokemon Z is annouced and Pre-Order that! also anyone have any good new Mega evolution ideas?
