STARTLING ODYSSEY II (RAYFORCE)

 SUPER CD-ROM2 (JAPANESE VERSION)

A great PC-ENGINE RPG game. Startling Odyssey 2, created by Rayforce, is the kind of game I'd recommend for those who are still RPG rookies. Although it is entirely in Japanese, it is still easy when compared to similar games like Final Fantasy, Dragon Slayer, among others. It's hard to fully understand the game plot because of language but, paying attention on the anime sequences throughout the game, you can get a good notion.

Well, as it's usual on most RPG games, you ought to buy weapons, shields, armors and several potions which will be crucial along the quest. Each killed enemy will give you money and experience points. You'll also have several places to save the game, like inns inside the villages, castles and others.

Graphics are plenty of details, specialy the sprites of main characters, designed in SD (Super Deform) style. There will be lots af animes and dialogues along the game...by the way, this is certainly the PC-ENGINE RPG game with the greater amount of anime sequences, at least among the games I know by far. There's a special part on this game when Galious (one of the characters) calls Robin (the main character) to practice a little bit of voyeurism and watch their female friends exchanging their clothes behind the door...simply hilarious!! :) The musics suit well the game, well composed and produced. The gameplay is top-notch, as well as the battle sequences.

  

Startling Odyssey 2 is, without a doubt, a game that will please both rookie and expert RPG players. Highly recommended.
