    Review Breath of Fire II

    Understandably lacking in freshness

    The Super NES was home to what are still considered by many to be a some of the finest RPG experiences ever produced. It's a predictable lineup of big names, and Breath of Fire II doesn't often get a mention.

    Review Breath of Fire II

    A breath of fresh air

    Capcom’s Breath of Fire series isn’t really respected that much these days. The last instalment — the underrated Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter for the PS2 — was a bit too different from previous games and didn’t really make the impact Capcom possibly hoped for. Compare this to the fanfare that followed the release...

About The Game

Featuring a wide range of characters and personalities and a vast, endless world to explore, Breath of Fire II is the sequel to the original smash-hit role-playing game.

In a world set 500 years after the previous installment, in a frontier village known as Gate, the father and sister of a young boy known as Ryu are suddenly abducted. Strangely, all the villagers appear to have completely forgotten everything about the incident, and Ryu has instantly become an orphan.At a church Ryu meets Bow, another orphan in a similar predicament, and they slip away from town together to begin their adventure.

Multiple gameplay viewpoints are featured in the game (such as the quarter-view perspective during battles that made the original game so popular) while using exciting abilities like shaman fusing and dragon transformations, and help these two heroes complete their mission!
