To be fair, the anime-ish designs do complement the game world rather well. There is also a fair amount of voice acting and animated scenes that add to this feel, but unfortunately the animated sequences feel rather dated. While the movies are done in very high resolution, the animation itself and the number of colors used in these scenes betray its humble origins. Tengai Makyo II is sure to please the old fans of the series and anyone who is looking for a more traditional RPG experience. The game itself provides a solid 30-35 hours of gameplay, which is a bit longer than most RPGs nowadays. It's too bad a great deal of this gameplay is due to mindless dungeon slash and hack.
On dit qu'un grand jeu est éternel. Pour moi, certains vieillissent moins bien que d'autres. Ce Tengai Makyô 2: Manjimaru reste un bon jeu, c'est indéniable. Cependant, en gagnant en technique le jeu perd un peu en charme, et les rouages ultra-basiques font moins mouche aujourd'hui. De plus, la difficulté a été trop revue à la baisse. Une valeur sûre, quoiqu'il en soit, plus accessible grâce au support, mais toujours aussi obscure pour qui ne parle pas jap' ou n'est pas prêt à jouer en lisant avec un bout de papier sur ses genoux.
