Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection might satisfy some of the hardcore Ys loving fans of Falcom, but I feel like this game will do more for any gamer who is intimidated by the developer’s other series and bigger titles. It’s a shame that I waited so long to get into the Zwei series, but I’m grateful for a chance to play such a fun and amusing action RPG in a time where serious story premises seem to be all we get.
Zwei has this unmistakable charm that kept me engaged to the very end, even if looking back it wasn’t as interesting or captivating as some other Falcom games I’ve played. I can’t say it’s amazing, nor is it the best Falcom title I’ve gone through. Not by a longshot, and in these last few years I’ve been playing a lot of them. What it is, however, is a glimpse into a new idea, that if it could be given another look maybe could turn into something amazing.
Unlike the first game, which was a flawed yet interesting experience, Zwei: Ilvard Insurrection opts for refinement, stripping away all of the half-baked elements. In almost every respect, this was the right decision to make. The combat is far more enjoyable, and there's none of the tedium that plagued the original. Still, the feeling of "sequelitis" is impossible to shake off.
