Almost everything this title does has had some equivalent seen in RPGs that came before it, but they have been tweaked where the experience still feels fresh. A single playthrough can easily stretch to sixty hours, but the emphasis on story telling and immense cast of memorable characters make the large time commitment worthwhile. It is doubtful that someone who hates JRPGs will be converted by this title, but for anyone who is a fan of the genre, this is one of the stronger offerings in recent years.

Cold Steel II does exactly what the middle arc of a trilogy should do – keep you intrigued and guessing. Upon finishing, I was even more invested in the narrative and characters and looked up how Falcom’s progress on the third entry was going. The wait already seems unbearable because I need to know what happens next; I haven’t had this much fun with plot twists and crazy villains in a while. When a video game story just gets its hooks in you like that, it’s done its job well.

The satisfying combat is rich with nuance and deep enough to allow freedom in creating your strategy, a task facilitated by the sizable playable roster. It also jumps past the presentation hurdle I felt was limiting the appeal of the franchise when I played Trails in the Sky with adequately detailed 3D characters and environments and slick artwork, on top of diverse designs.
