Ever wonder why RPGs always start you as a cowmaid or a floor sweeper? In Summoner 2 you are the Queen of Halassar - and you're on a mission!
|The game is an RPG and is very Final Fantasy-like. You have a group of people in your party, going around talking to everyone you meet, taking on quests, learning lore about your land. The things you do affect what they say and move the plot along.|
The graphics are a bit blocky, with repetitive textures and not-quite-smooth objects. The sounds are reasonably OK. You buy things from shop, gather up needed items, and your Queen's special power is that she can turn into various summons as needed.
With all the really great RPGs out, I think there just wasn't quite anything in Summoner 2 that stood out as super. The graphics were OK. The sounds were OK. The plot line was OK. The combat system gets a bit tedious after a while.
If you've already played the recent Final Fantasy games, and Elder Scrolls Morrowind and NeverWinter Nights, then you might fall back to this game. But there are definitely better RPGs out on the market right now that are amazingly fun to play for months and months. This just isn't one of them.
