The story in Magnacarta 2 may seem a cliché at first (...amnesia) but this isn't your garden variety storytelling. It's a long slow wonderful burn. I must warn you however, there are some moments of genuine affection and maybe even the L word, between raining death from the sky and running your sword through the carcasses of large beasts and the decidedly wicked Northern Forces. Magnacarta 2 may also appear to lack the fidelity of a modern Final Fantasy or similarly gleaming JRPG. I can't argue with the gleaming part, but I will say that on occasion you might find sophistication where you least expect it...like that blocky RPG that redefined its generation not so long ago.
