The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2 Review

The Legend Of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel 2 is a pretty good game. That being said, it isn’t as enjoyable as the first game. You’ll need to play The Legend Of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel 1 before you play this. If you play this game without playing the original you’ll be lost completely. In terms of graphics and combat, the game really doesn’t add anything new. The graphics are hideous and the combat well hasn’t changed a lot which is disappointing. The soundtrack hasn’t changed much either again disappointing. This game doesn’t feel like a sequel. Trails of Cold Steel 1 is the first part and this game is the second part.

What I really liked about this game was the art style. The art style is phenomenal. Each and every character has a fantastic design.  The thing is Trails Of Cold Steel 2 doesn’t feel like a sequel. Instead, it feels like a second part of the first game. I don’t think a sequel was needed. The combat is very similar to the first game, but it’s still very enjoyable. The turn-based battle system in this game is amazing. Turn-based JRPG’s these days are quite boring, but the turn – based system in this game is outstanding and other JRPG developers need to take note. If you enjoy classic turn based games then you’ll enjoy this one.

I also really liked the story in this game. The tone has changed and overall the game is much darker compared to the original. The game feels too familiar to the original one and that’s a huge problem in my opinion. I would have liked if Trails Of Cold Steel 2 was different to the original. Sure the story has changed, but other than that not a lot has changed. The graphics are still awful and the music is pretty much the same. Like I said, this game doesn’t feel like a sequel. It feels like a second part of the first game. They shouldn’t have made a sequel. That being said If you enjoyed the original Cold Steel then this game is a must buy. A lot of it is the same but it’s still a rich JRPG but if you’re new to the series I recommend getting Cold Steel 1.
