I have to admit that I love Arcus II: Silent Symphony's concept. Take the 12-year-old orphan from the first game, make him the hero, and fast-forward ten years into the future — that's definitely a fresh premise. Now combine that premise with engaging characters, a legendarily diabolical villain, loads of cutscenes, and a brilliant soundtrack composed by the ridiculously talented trio of Masaaki Uno, Motoi Sakuraba, and Yasunori Shiono. On paper, this sequel was a damned good idea. Unfortunately, the execution sucked and the world immediately stopped caring about Arcus.
