Dragon Fantasy: Book II’s over-reliance on exploiting nostalgia leaves little room to take advantage of its too few interesting contributions to the traditional Japanese RPG structure. Consequently, it subjects itself to the same problems that have long since been ironed out.
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.
In many ways Dragon Fantasy Book II is an ambitious undertaking, aiming to revisit and recreate one of the most beloved periods in console role-playing games. The fact that it's not entirely successful is disappointing, to be sure, but nonetheless, Book II remains an entertaining experience that retro gamers and RPG devotees would be hard pressed to dislike.
