GameZone: Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns Review

After years (decades, even) of having their genre of choice languish in obscurity, hardcore dungeon-crawl fans are finally having their day in the sun. The last two years have seen a veritable flood of the obscure RPG sub-genre released - and though a few have been released for Wii and PS2 (Baroque, Chocobo's Dungeon, and Persona 3 come to mind) the genre's system of choice of late has been the DS. The system's seen the recent release of Shiren the Wanderer, both Pokemon Mystery Dungeon titles, and Etrian Odyssey II, and has the upcoming Away: Shuffle Dungeon and From the Abyss to keep the streak going. In the midst of all this, Atlus has released Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns, the sequel to the title that arguably began the deluge when it released in February of last year. And much like its predecessor, Izuna 2 is a flawed yet charming title.
