Mario still has better writing than the first half of Bravely Default 1.

Did I whine about this before? Sorry if I did. I couldn't sit through the Nintendo Direct where they showed it off. I put up with a lot of nonsense because I just want games to be a bit of fun, but that dialog was unbearable, and I assume that anyone who buys this game might end up on a list somewhere.

I think most of us agree with the Direct showing Jim. I think the consensus is that Directs are a really poor way to show Bravely games off! Please take me off the list.

Presumably just me who's got this so far, and that's understandable. I'm not sure I wouldn't rather be playing Tales of Vesperia, with its more interesting characters.

Still, nice to have Revo's music again. The visual style is interesting, with almost claymation characters that don't always fit the backgrounds. I think it'll grow on me. The rest is standard Bravely, including interesting dialogue and comedy regional accents that are getting a gritted-teeth smile from me. Still, enemies in the overworld is a big plus!

I was close to picking it up, but I've been a bit JRPG mad lately so I think I need a bit of a break. I'd be surprised if I hadn't grabbed it by the end of the year. Gamesradars coverage is incredibly positive that I'm certainly intrigued.

I've got it but yet to play

Tad disappointed in score for Fantasy League because the lower ones seem to go this is old fashioned, isn't that point of Bravely Default though.

I'm surprised at that precise criticism (especially because underneath the prettiness Dragon Quest XI was as doddery as my grandpa stepping off a roller coaster and I imagine that it got away with that), but I can well imagine it being criticised for being almost the same as the original game again, with a barely different set of characters.  Looking at Nintendo Life's review it reads almost exactly the same as a review for the original Bravely Default, and while there have been welcome tweaks (monsters visible in the overworld!!!) that's kind of how it plays too.  There's nothing wrong with wanting some changes, along with the tribute to older games.  Even the first few jobs and the second town's theme are identical.

Still, it's got a big 'comfy slippers game' vibe to it, and it's been nice enough to play with a beer in hand. Apart from the side-quest that has you going from a dungeon to the nearby town three times, that can sod off. He should eat his lunch with his hands and be bloody grateful. Evil or Very Mad

I thought that about DQXI when talking to Craig as got BDII in Fantasy Critic as you know from your -9 points and that I was disappointed in the score due to the criticism being old-fashioned.

Where DQXI reviewed very well, but I know you for instance think and even myself from what I played its old-fashioned. I can only think because that's what DQ is compared to FF, that going into to a review is it this has to be a great old school JRPG.

Personally feel the same should apply to BDII as the first was meant to be a sequel to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light but I guess as only three games into BD compared to eleven for DQ, maybe people are hoping innovations can still be made which haven't.

See, I actually object to DQXI more. Going into DQ you're greeted by a dramatic opening, an orchestral fanfare, and an open-looking world from a third-person viewpoint that's new for the series (IIRC). It feels like things have changed! Then you play it. Sulk From the very first moment I fired this game up - no, from the trailers before then - I knew I was getting more of the same. I'd have marked them both down for their lack of change, their lack of ambition perhaps, but in DQXI's case the trappings don't match the game. I still think BD2 looks and sounds really nice, but it wears its identity on its sleeve.

Anyway, I'm not fussed about what the critics think: have you had a chance to play it Mas? I saw Andy playing it the other day, dunno what his thoughts are? My thoughts are that Bernard can shove a cactus right up his backside. Hissy fit

I think where DQXI shines over BD is the dialogue and voices. Edea, Agnes, Ringabel, whatever all the other ones were called... mega bum. And "mrgrgrgr" sticks in my head for how unforgivably stupid a vocal tic it is.
