    Part 2 just gets better

    I was really cautious in getting this game, as I have barely gotten through some of the first game, but, to my surprise, I really enjoyed this game. I've only just started, but I'm glad that I was able to get the second portion to continue on from the last one. And I got it for a great deal. Thanks, Best Buy!

    Fun, but not as great as the first

    I had fun playing this game, but it fell short of the original. Usually sequels improve on the original, but I don't feel this happened. However, it's still a solid game and if you enjoy JRPGs on the go, this is a great option.

    Even Better Than the First

    Albeit the first iteration of this series got a little bland and repetitive, I loved it nonetheless. With the second installment you get much of the same, with a few additions that were very welcomed. I love franchises that take chances and change bits of a game in order to keep it fresh.

    This game takes place directly after Bravely Default. There's a summary of the first game right at the start of this game, so if you wanted to start from the beginning, play that one first. Otherwise, this is a great game to get right into with no prior knowledge of the story or characters.

    Do yourself a favor and play the first one before jumping into this; Bravely Default was fantastic, an homage and improvement on classic JRPGs like Final Fantasy. Bravely Second builds on the first both in mechanics and story. A great game on its own, this is a rare worthy sequel in a fantastic new JRPG IP.

    overall, this was a good title but nothing really was new or different from the first Bravely Default title. So if enjoyed Default, you should enjoy Second also. Lots of choices in job and abilities and they kept the ability to turn off random encounters which can speed up travel to different locations.

    If you liked the first Bravely Default, you'll likely like this one as well! The story, itself, is not super engaging, but I like the flexibility that I have with choosing the strengths/weaknesses of the characters in the story.

    Great RPGS for a newcomer, or a seasoned RPGS play

    The unique thing I must say about this game is it really lets you play the game the way you want to. Prefer a challenge? Ramp up the difficulty and don't turn off random encounters ever. Want the game easier? Grind away then turn off random encounters during dungeons. I would highly recommend this game!

    I have always enjoyed the classic JRPGs of the 16-bit era. While the graphics, sound, and gameplay are far more advanced than those of the SNES and Genesis, the depth of story is there and ready to pull you in! I loved the first Bravely Default, and this one even more. Classic turn-based JPRG at its finest!

    Not as fun as expected

    I got caught up in the hype on this one. I read tons of reviews and watched trailers and it seemed great, but the gameplay is repetitive and boring at best. The story is fairly deep and plays out well, but actually PLAYING the game is not so great. Maybe I'm just not the target audience.

    Fun combat system and story! The characters are good but there are inconsistencies in the story for Bravely Default. It is still a fun game and I can replay this game over and over. But I can't replay Bravely Default. Still I think Bravely Default had a better story. I recommend playing it first.

    So I'm not a big fan of RPG games but my wife is and this is who I bought the game for. All I can say is that she loves this game so much that she went back to the store and bought the prequal to this game and she hasn't even gotten close to beating this one yet!!! I would have to say this is a must!

    Did you play and like the first game, Bravely Default? Yes? You'll probably like this one too. This is the direct sequel, but it is also the new edition of the direct sequel. The game has essentially had DLC added, and minor corrections made, and then released a second cartridge release.

    I loved the first game. I'm still not sure if I like this game better or the first one. This game does improve some things, but mostly it's just more of the same. In my case, that's a good thing, but some people struggled to get into the first one, and this won't change their mind.

    I enjoyed the original 3DS game released by Square Enix and this one is a great addition. The story is great and the extra character classes seem very balanced. I highly recommend this game if you enjoyed the original or are just an RPG fan looking for something new on your 3DS.

    This game has a lot of dialog. Also some beautiful landscapes and backdrops. Plenty of jobs to learn and side quests to complete. I like how fast you can set battle speed and how often you can have random encounters. I must say thought, it seems almost like a carbon copy of the first game.

    I loved the first part and this was a great continuation. I liked the fact that the characters had new jobs and that there were consecutive battles rather than regular battles. I dreaded waiting for an encounter. This is much better. More action! I also liked the back story on Yew's life.

    This game brings out the best in the series so far, the only aspect of the game I would say the first beats it in is the music which is subjective to taste. Other than that I believe that they are constantly improving this new franchise for the better and can't wait for a 3rd game!

    The game honestly more the same that you loved of the first, sadly the story is forgettable but overall enjoyable. The only major complain I have is that Nintendo censored the game for western releases which makes no sense. If you're a fan of the first then you will love the second .

    This game is great for what it does but it's good to know what you're getting into. Some day it's worse than the first but one thing to keep in mind is this is easy to find. The first is pretty good but it's out of stock almost everywhere. Play both and decide for yourself.
