Breath of Fire II

Super Nintendo

Game Review (by Gideon Zhi):

Breath of Fire 2’s translation is infamously terrible. From “Yes” and “No” being swapped to the game asking you to equip a fishing lod and bait, the writing in the game is bad even by Capcom’s low standards. The game itself is supposed to have a really interesting plot, but the text deteriorates to a point towards the end that nobody can really make any sense of what’s going on.

That said, it’s not a bad game. The dragon spells are pretty useless, unfortunately, but the rest of it is fairly standard RPG fare. The music’s decent, the graphics are good, and the game’s fairly tough, but if the meat of an RPG is the story, this one’s so stringy and tough that it drowns out just about everything else. Hopefully the current translation project will correct this.

Description:

This is the long-awaited English version of d4s’ Breath of Fire 2 retranslation/enhancement patch, two-and-a-half years in the making.

The patch is in IPS format for a ROM with NO header. There are also bonus patches included to restore the game’s original intro music or use an alternate song with the intro from d4s’ German translation.
