This sequel to Atlus' 2007 release Etrian Odyssey tells the story of the flooded Grand Duchy of High Lagaard, ruled by a duke rumored to be a descendant of the chosen ones who inhabit the mysterious castle in the sky. When a crisis cripples the nation, a call goes out to all explorers willing to go on an adventure to the great castle to retrieve the Grail of the Kings. A lifetime of fame and wealth will greet those who successfully return.
Like it's predecessor, Etrian Odyssey II is a dungeon-heavy role-playing game inspired by its traditional pen-and-paper forebears. By using the touch screen and stylus, gamers can chart their progress through dungeons, and map out halls, chambers, treasures, and pitfalls. The roster of character classes has been expanded from nine to 12, and players can customize their characters' name, sex, skills, and spells. Though dungeon crawling is the primary focus, more than 100 side-quests help give gamers a varied experience every time they play. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
