Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice is the definitive version of Dragon Fantasy Book II. It is a love letter to 16-bit RPGs with its tongue firmly planted in cheek. It may not surpass the fan favorites of that era, but it is a worthy homage and recommended to anyone who is a fan of old school RPGs.
Dragon Fantasy: Tome of Ice is a good game, made with heart, but I just didn’t find it very engaging. The whole thing feels kind of vanilla, with the exception of the writing. I suspect your mileage will vary based on how much of a fan you are of SNES-era RPGs. With a few exceptions, it’s not an era I yearn to relive, so I didn’t get much out of the game.
