Critic Reviews for The Caligula Effect 2

The Caligula Effect 2 has not too much to offer apart from a good combat system and some insteresting artistic vibes. The game is a very classic JRPG technically wise far from the modern standards, which suffers from a quite frayed and monotonous rhythm.

The story and music are the best standout points with the amazing attention to character development only matched by the genius sound design. Although The Caligula Effect 2 doesn't really sway from its roots or present many new ideas within the genre, if you're a fan of JRPGs, it's a solid title.

The Caligula Effect 2 is the kind of experience that works on paper, with a good basic idea and potentially intriguing protagonists. The game, however, is a hymn to banality and boredom without any redeeming traits. Fans (?) of the first game, with which it shares a weak narrative link, might find this game interesting. Everyone else should stay away.

The Caligula Effect 2 has loads of cool ideas, but it's undeniably rough around the edges.

The Caligula Effect 2 is a dramatic improvement over its predecessor in every single way and punches well above its weight.

Although the visuals may not be much to look at, the combat and story are the soul of Caligula Effect 2 that holds it all together.

A good combat system and a infectious soundtrack are not enough to make The Caligula Effect 2 a recommendation. Whate we have here is much better than the first game, but not on par with the best JRPGs on the market. Still, fans of the genre may want to give it a try.

Wrapping up our The Caligula Effect 2 review, there’s a lot to like in the game, even if it’s not your cup of tea. The gameplay is fun, maybe even challenging for new players of JRPGS, but it works well after the tutorial segment. Voice acting is professional sounding even if in the locations you hear them doesn’t match the environment.
