Nobody really expects much out of licensed games. It’s the license alone that sells the game - certainly not the quality of the game itself. Anime-based games seem to be even worse off in this regard. You could count on one hand the amount of anime-licensed games that are actually worthwhile playthroughs. Sadly, Eureka 7 Vol. 2 fails to join these few, proud examples.
It’s a shame, too, becauseon the surface, both this and its predecessor (Vol. 1) look pretty interesting. The two games together tell a story about Sumner Sturgeon, a youth entering a military career, only to become disillusioned with his work. The story acts as a prequel to the TV series, so it’s more accessible to the average player than a straight-up anime adaptation would be. There’s also several different gameplay styles integrated throughout to add variety.
