Conception II is an unusual beast. On one hand, the game could have used a lot more creativity when it came to the dungeons themselves, the throwaway plot is discouraging, and it doesn't do any one thing exceptionally brilliant in the gameplay department. On the other, the game looks incredible, the music is fantastic, and the combat system can be intense when the difficulty goes up. For fans of the genre, this is definitely one worth picking up, but for those on the sidelines, it may be an easier purchase later on.

That along with the strong presentation, beautiful art design, and slick UI, there's plenty here to enjoy and a definite purchase if you're big into otaku culture. For everyone else, you may want to consider your options a little more carefully more before diving in.

The combat and music are the highlights here, even if the game doesn't capitalize on the hardware.

While the original PC release of Napishtim had been brought to Japan nearly a decade ago, fans in the West had to deal with either the PlayStation 2 or PSP versions of the game. Thanks to XSEED's efforts in flushing out their Steam library, a much wider audience of gamers are now able to try out the sixth entry into the series for themselves.
