Dark Cloud User Reviews
It's funny when you look back on certain games - like what seemed like one of the best games you've ever played is actually just an above average one at best. It's not so much that Dark Cloud has aged badly because I think it's actually aged pretty well, but rather, it's just me really looking at a game and realizing that some things could afford to be a lot better, or that some things could be abolished altogether. That's just what Dark Cloud feels like to me - it wants to be a masterpiece in the rough that's the early PS2 lineup, but all it felt like was a game that tided you over while y...
Dark Cloud is one of those cult classics that have a sort of cult following. Honestly, do you expect mainstream gamers to go find a copy of Dark Cloud and play it? Well, they may buy it, but they may not like it. That's their problem, this is a true classic. Not in the same sense as other cult classics such as Super Ghouls N Ghosts and Final Fantasy 9 (despite the latter being of a mainstream series, it was only really successful with the more hardcore gamers) due to a decent amount of glaring flaws, but the goods seem to make it a classic regardless. Read on as I tell you the tale of a gam...
Amazing hack n slash gameplay with a sweet twist
Decent looking graphics
Gets kind of boring at timesSummary:
Dark Cloud is a good game, and somewhat nostalgic. If you've spent countless hours playing Sim City on PC or Actraiser on the SNES, you'll have an idea of the twist this game adds to the usual dungeon crawling hack n slash formula. I have to say that without the twist, the game wouldn't be as good as it is.
It plays like your usual hack n slash, yeah. Basically what you do, is that you explore dungeons, hacking at enemies and getting all the treasures. Your typical dungeon crawler, though there are some differences.
Your treasures aren't just items and gold, you also have to collect these thi...

This game is a very good one for the PS2. Most RPGer's should like Dark Cloud. This game also attracts attention from the Sim population due to the need to restore towns in your own fashion which counts for 1.5 of my total score. Also said above the storyline is very well done. It is quite in depth and requires thinking and strategy to complete and adds another 2 of 5 points. Also, except for a few places, the graphics are well put out which allows the gain of 1 point. The music in the game basically goes also with the environment adding another 0.5 of a point. On the down side, this game i...
Weapon construction, developing cities, fun gameplay at times, nice storyThe bad:
weapons breaking got annoying, some of the dungeons bored the living hell out of me, some other in-game tasks were a bit tediousSummary:
One of my first RPG games that I've ever owned on PS2. First of all, I thought it was a decent game. Most of it was easy to follow and the dungeons at the beginning of the game were quite easy and gave you a good feel for the game itself. But as the game progressed and a few broken weapons later, I kinda got a bit bored with it.. I mean, it was a solid game and everything, its just that some parts of it got a bit boring. Other than that, its a pretty cool game with lots of redeeming qualities, such as its battle system for one. Characters were also pretty cool as well.
I would recommend it t...
The game.The graphics are amazing.The controls are graet.I love the comic style story.How the enemy's are evil.All of the guys look very good.So if you are a girl you get one early in the game.The bad:
Its to hard And you need internet or else you will get in trouble.The guy that runs the place makes no sense at all.[If you know what he talks about.Thats nuts man/woman]Summary:
This game is so good I would burn down the School to get a copy.This shows all the good of a RPG.But you need help at the part where you have to hit the rock with wind.I want every one in the world to have this game.Just make sure That you have internet or you Know some one that does.If you say this game stinks I will glue you to the wall,and you don't that to happen.This game kicks but.Oh yeah FF sucks.
