Critic Reviews for Bravely Second: End Layer

Bravely Second is an unapologetic sequel to a JRPG that is a spiritual successor to another, and all the better for it.

A good combat system and gorgeous visuals are significantly let down by an underwhelming and perfunctory narrative that can make progression a real chore. Whilst there are elements that work in isolation, Bravely Second doesn't manage to tie them together in a way that matches the quality of the original.

A great combat system and world held back by immersion-breaking dialogue choices.

Another inspired attempt to modernise old school Japanese role-players, while retaining all the charm and depth of early era Final Fantasies.

Enjoying everything Bravely Second has to offer still requires putting up with a lot of filler

Bravely Second takes after its predecessor almost to a fault

Despite a cloying story and poor dialogue, Bravely Second is a sweeping adventure.

Bravely Second: End Layer is a worthy follow-up to Bravely Default, which in itself is one of the best RPGs on the Nintendo 3DS. Granted, if Bravely Default didn't move you the first time around, Bravely Second probably won't, either. For better or worse (but mostly better), it's a straight-up second helping of its predecessor.
