All things considered, Boktai 2 has turned out well. It takes the concepts of the previous game and expands upon them, offering a brand new world to openly explore. The transition between the Gun del Sol and the multiple weapons is decent, implementing a slew of new features necessary to see you through the game unscathed. The emphasis on stealth makes the game far more than a simplistic hack n’ slash RPG, forcing you to think and strategize on the go. While the presentation may be a little on the bland side, it can still stand proudly among other more popular GBA titles. Fans of the previous installment may appreciate the new features, while others may dislike the similarities between the two games. But for those that have yet to taste the sweetness of the Boktai series, give this game a chance. Even if it doesn’t satisfy your RPG, stealth, or adventure fixes, it’ll let you get some fresh air.
