Rated 10 out of 10 by Aeryn High Replay Value. Tons of fun.
I picked this game up before me and my family went on a trip to see the rest of the family. I hate family visits so this game saved me. But little did i know that i would still be playing this game today. I have probably played this game over 15 times, all the way through since i have bought it. The story is amazing, the graphics were really good for it's time, and the game play was tons of fun (maybe a little repetitive in fighting but the weapon customization has you wanting to test out your new weapons in dungeons anyway) The music is nice and sets the mood of the story very well. The crafting system of the game is really fun, take pictures, gather score, get good items that are very useful. Fishing and spheda are very fun also, when you just feel like relaxing and not really killing anything. This is by far my most cherished game of all time, i can see myself playing it again and again until my playstation breaks and i can't find another working one.
Rated 10 out of 10 by lilangel239 great rpg with alot of replay value!
When I first played Dark Cloud, I was so amazed by the gameplay and the customization of the weapons that you can do along with building towns the way you want to! Then when I found out that they were coming out with a Dark Cloud 2, I was very happy! There is so much to do in this game!! The storyline was great along with the characters! Max and Monica are awesome! You can fish, play spehda(golf),build with detail, Invent weapons, gear, parts for the ridepod and so much more, and customize and level up anyway you want to! This game has so many hours of gameplay! At least over 100 hours! And I would definatelly recommend this game to any rpg lover! And if I had to compare the fighting style, I would say its more like Kindom Hearts(slash and kill). Hopefully they come out with a new Dark Cloud 3 for the Playstation 3! I know that alot of gamers who loved this title would be very pleased to hear that a third is being relased!!

Where to start. I got this game when I wasn't very old but I remember playing it lots and having very fond memories of this game, remembering all of the moments I got to. The story is wonderful! Its cheery but slightly dark at times. Its a original and interesting and it gets you hooked. The graphics were amazing for its time. The gameplay was wonderful! There was hardly ever a dull moment. All of the things you could do in this game amazed me when I was younger and still amaze me now. The music is beautiful and addicting(I listen to it now as I write this). This is truly a game with lasting appeal. It is great for all ages and all gamer's, weather hardcore or just relaxed. It has something for most everyone and it will make you keep playing and wanting more. I wish now that I had it. A wonderful game that I will always remember.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MASDGTHYJJ MASTER PIECE!!!!!
a master piece is a bit of a insult to this game. Dark cloud 2 is the best game i have ever played and ive played all the zeldas all the star oceans all the kingdom hearts all the dragon quests all the devil may cry games all the final fantasy games (Final fantasy VII is probly a very close tie) all the white knight chronicle games demon soul most of the elder scrolls sryrim is BEAST!!!! but this game just has somthing special that just makes it really fun and addicting i played over 300 hours of gameplay of this game sure some parts of it are cheesy but thats one of the reasons i love it i love that you level up your weapon and building them up is really really fun the battle system is really simple but creative its not to hard if you buy this game i will garante after the 1st 5 hours you play you will be addicted.
Rated 9 out of 10 by XepherChallege One of my Favorite All time RPG Series
Dark Cloud One was an amazing game when I first played it and when I heard Dark Cloud 2 I waited to get it used. I was amazed by the cartoon look of the game. I thought it was going to be horrible due to a couple other games going in cartoon animation. This game proves me wrong, just amazing graphics. An added feature was the voice dialogue which was maintain really good. I played the game two times through just to see what different swords/weapons I can evolve them to. That’s my favorite part of the Dark Cloud Series is the customization of your weapons. Except in the first one where your weapon could break, which was annoying. In the new one you can't break your weapon. The story mode is excellent I couldn’t put down the remote control. The extra dungeon mode was a good feature carried over from Dark Cloud One. The add modes like raising a fish and sphera (like golf) were also cool mini games to play, plus you get rewards for winning at them. If you are looking for a good RPG to fill up the boring days then Dark Cloud 2 would be your game. It's good for any age, except for some language here and there. The only thing I wish is that Level 5 would come back to make a Dark Cloud 3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Razputin One of the Best Games I've Ever Played
Dark Cloud 2 is one of the greatest PS2 games you could possibly buy hands down. The gameplay is interesting and at times can be challenging with it's Georama, but this game is DEFINATLY worth getting. The music is nothing short to amazing, the composer is a musical genius and I hope to hear more from him. The only thing I could possibly point out wrong about it is at the beginning of chapter three there is a giant voice misplacement when Max is talking to Dr.Dell. Instead of saying "Alright let's go!" as the subtitles suggest, he says "Not good at all, a few more days like this and she's done for". Other than that this game is perfection wrapped in a beautiful CD and in my opinion, way better than any Zelda game you could buy. I hope to see more masterpieces from level 5's musical and writing genius.

All I have to say is, I am a 42 year old Grandma and I have been playing games since I was 12 and sneaking up in the middle of the night to play the new Atari. When My kids hooked me up to this game I found myself staying up all night to play this game. There has only been 1 other RPG game I have found that might top this one ( Final Fantasy 9). The only flaw is that if you don't realize how important it is to take pictures of your foes early, you lose the chance to refind them and take them (but there's sooo much to do otherwise). I have realized over the years that the graphics have become so intense that getting lost has become a habit in the newer games but this game is remarkable at helping the "old" stay "young" and remembering where things are is a breeze.
Rated 10 out of 10 by boboruler This is amazing
Well, I got this game about a year ago and still haven’t beat it. That is probably because I erased my file accidentally and I was at the end of the game so I had to start over. The pros: Unlike the first Dark Cloud when your weapons break you don’t loose them, The Georama is a lot simpler, the worlds are excellently designed, and the boss battles are insane. There are a bunch of little side quests you can do like at the end of a floor in a dungeon you can play a game similar to golf. I love how you can transform your weapons. The cons: The only complaint I have for this game is that the AI can be a little stupid. Like sometimes they will just turn around and pretty much let you kill them.

Bright colors, amazing environments, and entertaining character design. Great battle system. Engaging plot; exciting, light-hearted and amusing.
Easy to pick up and play. A deeper understanding of the game 's Building and Synthesizing mechanics are not necessary to enjoy the game, making it a great title for younger or newer gamers. However, as an adult I have found this to be a rewarding RPG that I would recommend to any fan of the genre!
Had this title for 5 or 6 years now and I've replayed it at least twice.
