6.5 / 10.0

Judged against other tactics games, there are so many better options on the 3DS that Project X Zone 2 doesn't rate. Don't come expecting deep gameplay or even inventive updates to distinguish it from the previous game. PXZ2 is much more interested in matching up a diverse set of mascots for maximum humor and references to classic Japanese game series, which it skillfully handles most of the time. Nostalgia can only take PXZ2 so far in a lengthy campaign of average strategy gameplay, but it's an engaging old-school reunion while it lasts.

No Recommendation / Blank

Project X Zone 2 is a hilarious but sometimes tiresome genre mashup of every crossover you ever wanted.

The line-up of characters is the stuff of fanboy dreams, but the gameplay is enough to send you to sleep – if not give you nightmares.

Your mileage depends heavily on your appreciation of the characters and callbacks to familiar games. The tactical gameplay doesn't stand on its own, but the character interactions are fun
