Eureka Seven Vol. 2: The New Vision review

For the most ardent fans of the anime only. And even that's pushing it

Pros

  • Direct anime tie-in story
  • Really sweet mech designs
  • Optional cutscenes and tutorial

Cons

  • Sub-par visuals
  • Touchy controls
  • Being mocked for learning the gameplay

Nobody really expects much out of licensed games. It%26rsquo;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%26rsquo;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%26rsquo;s more accessible to the average player than a straight-up anime adaptation would be. There%26rsquo;s also several different gameplay styles integrated throughout to add variety.
