Erik Brudvig from IGN writes: "Anybody who has played more than a handful of JRPGs will find a game that feels all too familiar from the very outset. If you're fine with buying a game that will feel like you've probably played it before, by all means give Magnacarta 2 a shot. I'd say that newcomers would find more to like here, but the fact is that there are better JRPGs out there on Xbox 360 that I'd recommend as an intro to the genre before this middle of the road adventure."
No new ideas. Magnacarta 2 takes absolutely no chances.
Serviceable art direction and decent visuals.
Lots of voice acting. Most of it isn't awful. Japanese voice tracks would have been nice, though.
The real-time combat is a good start, but the quest design and lack of evolution through the game don't help things.
6.0 Lasting Appeal
It's a pretty long game, but not one you'd be likely to play through twice.
