PlayStation Universe (8 out of 10)

A throwback to the SNES era of RPGs. It is funny, refreshing and proves small budgets can succeed in a genre where big budgets reign supreme. It is a little short on depth but for the price of a movie ticket it can't be beat.

Dragon Fantasy Book II is still a lot of fun. Dungeons are highly enjoyable to explore and the new battle system is very strong despite its few flaws. However, it doesn't upgrade Book I as much as it might've done. A lot of this could be attributed to the time spent upgrading the first game for its sixteen-bit PSN version, and the quick speed that Book II followed it out. Muteki has left itself with a product that isn't entirely polished, but still another very solid base on which to build.

While a fun game, Dragon Fantasy Book II has a few technical issues on the PS3 version that prevent it from reaching the heights of its predecessor. There’s more content this time around and just as much humor, but it would have been nice to see this instalment build more upon the original. Still, if you did enjoy the original and are wanting more of the same, then Dragon Fantasy Book II should be right up your street.

Technical flaws and narrative shortcomings aside, Dragon Fantasy Book II is a fun, retro-inspired RPG that hits the notes it needs to.

RPG Site (6 out of 10)

Dragon Fantasy Book II is an ambitious title, but unfortunately marred by a few too many problems to be as fun as Book I. It is not a bad game, but the title tends to drag on in the middle, and the tedium with having to deal with inferior monsters and stray bugs are bound to grate on many nerves. Regardless, if you played Book I and are interested in how the story continues, Book II is still worth picking up at some point... especially if you are interested in what might might happen next in the planned 64-bit Book III.

There is no joy in writing negative things about a game that has its heart in the right place, a game that is trying. It feels as heartless as kicking a puppy. The people at Muteki Corp. made a game they and their fans would enjoy and there is definitely an audience for it. Unfortunately for anyone else, Dragon Fantasy Book II is often broken, and when it does work, it never transcends being derivative.

Push Square (5 out of 10)

Like the bald hero himself, Dragon Fantasy: Book II emerges from the dungeon victorious, boasting of pretty graphics, a glorious soundtrack, and solid gameplay. But its celebration of JRPGs is cursed with unnecessary mechanics and cut short by technical shortcomings. Ogden would have been better off fondly reminiscing about his previous, more enjoyable adventures.

IGN (3 out of 10)

Dragon Fantasy: Book II relies on what’s been done better elsewhere, and its JRPG style goes nowhere worth exploring.
