Occasionally, Demon Gaze II can be a little fun and make you chuckle. And, while there is nothing especially wrong with the game, there really are not many highlights either. I wish could say more positive things about this game, but in all honesty, it's not one I would recommend for most JRPG fans.
For the most part, this is the same game released fifteen years ago, but with HD graphics. While this game feels and plays like a true classic, players will likely wish the remake went a bit further with its changes, especially when it comes to the controls and sound quality.
While breaking all of the typical conventions of the genre, Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk somehow manages to stay true to the spirit of a JRPG. Although it's held back by repetitive combat and some disturbing cutscenes, the game has a lot to offer for hard-core fans of turn-based, dungeon exploration games, especially those with a darker sense of humor.
Perseverance: Part 1 feels like a rushed endeavor. It's unpolished and the characters do not feel entirely fleshed out. Yet there is just enough potential that when the game ends on a cliffhanger, I find myself slightly interested in the next part of the story.
