Everything About This is GoodReviewed By: Klaviaturist on 01 Feb 2012
Silva Saga 2, the last game in the series and the first one for the Super Famicon proves to be a fairly excellent game, if a touch short. But where the game really shines is in the recently finished translation from Dynamic Designs which proves that these guys really do know what they are doing, and than some.
First of all, a brief description about the game. Silva Saga 2 takes place a little while after the events of Silva Saga (it’s never really specified). You take on a character that has amnesia and the only thing he remembers is that he must find Prince Kyral, the Light Warrior, and help defeat the evil that is terrorizing the land. As you play through the game you will get mercenaries and stone idols to help you progress through the game, along with numerous friends.
The storyline is fairly basic but what helps it from falling into generic mumbo jumbo is a fantastic translation. Every NPC has a lot to say, whether it be useful or just silly. Also you can search for items everywhere, but usually you will get a hilarious message. One of them was when you look in a pot, than you find a smaller pot, and in that pot, you find a smaller pot, and in that pot you find an even smaller pot. It gets to the point where the hero gets annoyed and just throws the pot aside. There is a ton of random goofiness in the game that make it so you want to check everything. But I was genuinely intrigued with the basic plot because the translation makes you really care about what’s going to happen next. Also, look for Dynamic Designs fairly early on in the game in a fairly goofy conversation.
Just a few more thoughts about the game itself. The game is not that long and is never overtly difficult. The difficulty only raises near the end of the game, but if you level grind you can wipe the floor with bosses and enemies. Also, as far as side quests there really aren’t many. Matter of fact, the only side quest I noticed was near the end in trying to collect all the idols.
Silva Saga 2 is a solid game with a great battle system, good plot because of a good translation, and over all a ton of fun. Anyone that is a fan of the Golden Years of RPGs for the SNES/Super Famicon should really play this one.
