Genre: RPG

Coming to Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita is Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars, a unique dungeon-exploring RPG with school-life elements. In the world called Aterra where the Star God is worshipped, monsters have begun to spawn from the mysterious labyrinth. However, the Star God has imbued certain young adults - Disciples - with the power to fight monsters, as well as create Star Children to aid in the battle. Only Disciples and Star Children can defeat the monsters, and you, as God's Gift, have an additional weighty task: to bond with seven other Disciples and bear many Star Children to help your world survive!

The JRPG style is not going through its finest hour and it’s not Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars that will lift it upwards. While the battle system is very well implemented and the breeding function is a welcome detail, nearly everything else is missing: an involving narrative, a captivating exploration, charismatic characters and appealing graphics are all absent from this lacklustre and overall tedious production.

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.

In conclusion, Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is a neat little entry in the JRPG market, which – while not exactly revolutionary – manages to distance itself from other turn-based RPGs through the introduction of new gameplay mechanics like Star Children and Classmating. These mechanics might not necessarily be new but they are built on the preexisting concepts in a JRPG and are surprising fun for the most part.

There’s plenty of enjoyment to be had if players aren’t bothered by the high levels of fanservice involving the female characters, but outside of the occasional bits of the Star Children being adorable, there’s nothing that particularly wows and calls for much attention.
