    Part 2 of an Amazing JRPG Sub-Series Comes to PS4

    Trails of Cold Steel is part of a much larger JRPG series. The Legend of Heroes spans a ton of entries, but the ones that begin with "Trails of" are all set in the same world (such as Trails in the Sky). Since this is Trails of Cold Steel II, it's beneficial to have played the previous one that just released on PS4 a few months ago (trust me, it's worth it!) This entry was previously released on PC, PS3, and Vita and if you've already started a game on the latter two and created a cloud save in-game, you can continue where you left off on the PS4 version. Plus, it adds additional voiced dialogue, a fast forward mode, and all of the DLC. It comes packaged with a steelbook case, replica pin, 7 cards, soundtrack, and a paper manual (remember those?) Keep in mind that because this is an enhanced port of a much older game, it's not as visually impressive as other games on the console. Also, prepare yourself for a ton of exposition and world building. If you're okay with all that, you're in for a fantastic experience as the characters, combat, and overall narrative are top notch. It even has a similar social aspect to the Persona games. And when you're done with that, be sure to pick up Trails of Cold Steel III when it releases later this year!

    Underrated series that RPG fans MUST play

    Trails of Cold Steel II picks up right where ToCS leaves off. If you enjoyed the first one, then this is a must have to continue the story of Class VII. As a whole, the Trails of Cold Steel series is one that I highly recommend for all RPG fans. Falling under the Legend of Heroes umbrella, it tells the story of the nation of Erebonia while making minimal references to situations that occurred in the Trails in the Sky series. The character development in Cold Steel is nothing short of amazing and while the first game was more world building, the second one has definitely been more action without skimping on the necessary story telling. While I could go on for hours, I won’t. I’ll just say that this story was a great way to end the PS3 generation and is a welcomed edition to the current generation. Pick this up... you won’t be disappointed.

    Originally released for the Vita and PS3 was ported to PC with quality of life improvements, additional content and a nifty turbo mode that is a welcome addition to those that want to do multiple play throughs. Now that PC port, being the definitive edition, has arrived for PS4 and it has been worth the wait. The frame rate stays at a consistent 60fps while actually playing in dungeons, fighting enemies or just running around town. The only parts where it got choppy for me in my 80+ hour play through was during a couple of cutscenes. Despite those minor blemishes they do nothing to detract from the enjoyment of what imo is one of the greatest JRPG series of the decade. The voice acting is fantastic, the music is wonderful and the entire experience is wrapped up nicely in a package that emanates classic Falcom charm.

    Really Nice Package

    The game itself is good. If you're looking at this, you know what you're getting into. What I"m here to talk about is the package. The game comes with a nice steel case and the soundtrack is good. The instruction manual is also a nice read and the art is good too. This is a worthwhile purchase as the extras in the game are worth it. The fast forward features also make this so much faster than the PS3 or Vita versions.

    Trails of Cold Steel is one of the first Turn-based RPGs I've enjoyed in quite awhile. I love the combat system, and I love the characters, and how deep the customization can go for your party. The graphics are definitely from the PS Vita, but who cares really. The music is fantastic. All in all, if you like JRPGs in any capacity, you should look into this series.

    This title is a relatively good sequel to Trails of Cold Steel I. They take the issues from the first game and improve on them, while also making some changes to make combat more balanced. My main complaint is with the story, but I'm not about to go into spoilers so I'll leave that for another day.

    One of the most story involved and interesting JRPG's in a long time. I truly enjoy the Trails series and I am glad it was revitalized for the modern console. This has all the classic rpg elements. Magic, Tech, many characters and personalities, and a talking cat. Cant wait for Trails 3.

    This version plays identically to the PS3 version, but the Turbo Mode greatly helps cut down on the time-consuming travel and animations. The story is as awesome as ever, but be warned: for spoilers' sake, DO NOT play this before finishing the first game!!!!

    If you haven't played the Trails of Cold Steel games now is a good time to do so. It is re-released on PS4 and it is better than it was before. A great game for those that enjoy an engrossing story and character growth through a long journey.

    An amazing follow up to a great game! It takes everything that was great from the first game and gives you more, but with some refinement and a couple of new surprises as well! Excited for the 3rd and 4th game to come to the West!

    Trails of Cold Steel II is an excellent follow-up to the first game. It is a direct continuation of the first game's story, so be sure to play the first Trails of Cold Steel before starting the second.

    The Trails of series is one of the best JRPG series currently running . From the engaging story to great characters and fun combat system, Cold Steel II is no exception, dive in before III releases.

    The second game in the Trails of Cold Steel series. It's a traditional jrpg with good story with social aspect like a little bit of persona game. Combat is combination of turn base and mech.

    The story continues with the same improvements that were done with the first entry. A great jrpg that deserves a look. Especially for those like me who missed out on its original release.
