This is IT!Reviewed By: Hamlet on 18 Nov 2009
What a fantastic piece of work! I am really trying to suppress my enthusiasm and be as objective as possible but this is really difficult if you have a work like this in front of you. The official translation is somewhat infamous and therefore this re-translation was long overdue, but what Ryusui accomplished here is more than just a translation. He kept some of the great features implemented by d4s (e.g. dash button etc,) and added some of his own (e.g. multiple patches for those who want to keep d4s’s new game intro or those who prefer the original title screen etc.). If you liked the allegorical tones of religion/collectivism vs atheism/individualism in “Breath of Fire III” this patch is a must, since they are also present in “Breath of Fire II” and with this version now restored back to their full glory. Finally a translation of “Breath of Fire II” that clearly shows, why this game is one of the BIG RPGs of the SNES-era! If you have played to official version and left the game unsatisfied try this patch and you might start to reconsider your previous opinion. If you have not played “Breath of Fire II” yet, this is the perfect opportunity to meet an outstanding gem among RPGs.
