''Atlus, oh Atlus, why must you humble me? Why do you have to keep making games that will push any gamer's skills to the limit? Could it be because you care and want to cater to the hardcore market?
Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard is the most challenging RPG that I have ever played. That doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing, if you know what you're getting into. The second installment of Etrian Odyssey for the DS is once again a dungeon crawling RPG. However, this time instead of traveling from the top floor of a cave downward, the players must start on the first floor of a massive tree and work their way to the top.
Along the way you are free to choose from several different player classes for your adventure party. Players will find themselves constantly switching characters in and out of their party to make it to the next floor.
Etrian Odyssey 2:Heroes of Lagaard is definately for the hardcore RPG fan, but is it worth their time?''
