OK, as Tom pointed out in the VC news update, the random battles can get tiresome, but such things come with the territory and shouldn't prevent you from throwing 800 points in the direction of a beautifully crafted and impeccably produced adventure.
The Virtual Console is slowly getting more and more decent role-players and BoF2 represents another fantastic addition to current selection. It’s not quite what I’d call a ‘legendary’ RPG, but fans of the genre willing to look past the minor shortcomings are unlikely to be disappointed.
Because of these issues, not only is Breath of Fire II less enjoyable story- and gameplay-wise, it also comes off as a hasty, careless effort. It's a shame, because for 800 Wii points, you still get a lengthy quest--potentially more than 35 hours--that sports some truly engaging and worthwhile ideas, and the last few hours are genuinely exciting. Ultimately, you can have a good time if you decide to check it out, but only if you're patient enough to look past its very rough edges.
