Item Description

Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlordis a strategy RPG, but with a uniquestory that unfolds much more like avisual novel. As a distant sequel toTears to Tiarait is not neccesary to have played the previous title in order to fully appreciate the game. In fact if you are a fan of strategy RPG's and Japanese storytelling in general then we might have a match!The US release will receive subtitle localization in English, but the voices will remain as theoriginal Japanese.

Embark on the tale of Hamilcar Barca,the last heir to Hispania's royal throne,as he fights to reclaim his land from the Divine Empire! Hamilcarwill fight alongside an entire cast of deep characters,beasts, and even the gods themselves as he learns to control the demon within.

The unique combat is at times a toolforthe story, and as such may take a backseat - but is in no way boring! Over15 main characters, plus side characters and even beasts, can be recruited into your party to allow players the freedom to build their own strategy.There is a very fun combat mechanic calledChain Stockgauge which can be charged up (by dealing/taking damage) to then unleash a Chain Attack. During the Chain Attack playersmust hold down the attack button and release it when the circle on the screen disappears, much like in a rhythm-action game. Higher accuracy =bigger combos!

Tears to Tiara IIwill once again encorporatethe incredibly fun Element Cycle - a wheel that for a fixed amount of time actives a elemental power boost, cycling through the different elements.While the power boost is active each unit with that elemental type will receive a stat boost, and all skills or magic attacks with that element will be more powerful.

Great story, music, and gameplay!
Tears to Tiara II is a hybrid between a JRPG and a Visual Novel. Cutscenes are fully voiced, and the battles are fun, tactical and most importantly, never tiresome! The premise is something we've all seen before, however, but I guarantee that the story is really good. The soundtrack is absolutely amazing! (I hope they release the soundtrack CDs soon!) The game takes quite a long time to complete too. I'm 30 hours in, and haven't even finished half of it!

You have to get this game! If you want to try it out before making the purchase, feel free to play the free demo from the Japanese PlayStation Store. It's a very long demo, mind you. It took me around 2.5 hours to finish it!

To anyone who has read that the difficulty in this game is rather odd, the developers released a patch a little while ago, adding a "Very Easy" difficulty. All in all, I'm very glad I decided to buy this, even though I didn't play the prequel. I'm sure you'll enjoy this title just as much as I did :)

Pros: Stunning soundtrack, great gameplay, fully voiced cutscenes, update patch adds new difficulty level, DLC available, very long game, quite a big cast of characters

Cons: Lots of text (might be annoying for some), gets a little boring when conversation is derailed

5/5 stars

Great game!
Excellent plot, beautiful art and awesome music. It's worth a go despite the imbalance in difficulty and the lackluster 3D graphics. The game received a patch that gave it a very easy mode and NG+ which will definitely add to the experience. If you're looking for a good story/visual novel with RPG elements, this is the right game for you.
