The guys of Gaming Boulevard wrote their review of Bravely Second: End Layer and decided:
Bravely Second: End Layer is the direct sequel of Bravely Default so if you enjoyed the first one, you just need to get the sequel for sure. Never played the original? No need to worry, you don't need to know every detail about the story to enjoy it. The story is fun to follow thanks to the charming characters although the plot itself isn't that special. Gameplay-wise the game combines classic JRPG elements and innovates them with the strong Brave and Default mechanism. If you're looking for a game that stays enjoyable for a long time, try out Bravely Second.
