Bravely Second: End Layer


Anyone who thinks the Japanese RPG is moribund needs to take a second look at the Nintendo 3DS. Between Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, Fire Emblem: Awakening and the first Bravely Default, Nintendo's handheld has carried some of the finest JRPGs of the last...

A spellbinding, effortlessly charming JRPG that freaks with the formula while respecting what makes the genre great. While some might find Bravely Second two twee or jokey to be taken seriously, others will find a smart, witty and surprisingly rich...

Bravely Second: End Layer Review


The Nintendo 3DS, like pretty much every Nintendo console ever released, is catching sh*t (justifiably for the most part) for its relatively sparse release schedule. Despite the announcement of Pokemon Sun and Moon for later in the year, the 3DS isn't...

Review: Bravely Second: End Layer Collector’s Edition (Nintendo 3DS)


When the original Bravely Default released a couple years ago, it was notable for a few reasons. First, it proved that Square Enix can still produce a damn good RPG in the same vein as classic Final Fantasy . It also illustrated that it was a viable...

If you enjoyed any part of Bravely Default , then you’ll absolutely want to give Bravely Second: End Layer a shot. It has all the same gameplay mechanics, visuals and, well, most everything that it had before. It improved upon many aspects though, such...

Bravely Second: End Layer Review


Bravely Second: End Layer is a sweeping adventure through Celtic myths, pirate legends, and science-fiction fairy tales. It's an ambitious amalgam, and in other cases, might approach overkill. But while poor writing and forced plot points impede this...

Varied, gorgeous world Strategic combat Creative Job system Well-paced late-game hours

Poor writing and dialogue Forced plot points

Bravely Second: End Layer


It hasn't even been a month since I described The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel as “the finest JRPG (Japanese role-playing game) in years”, and along comes Bravely Second: End Layer to fight for that crown. We're not even a quarter of the way...

"Everything you loved about Bravely Default, but with more interesting characters and a more captivating story."

Bravely Second: End Layer review


Bravely Second is an incredibly hard game to talk about without sounding like a complete weirdo, and it gets even worse when you start throwing in some of the game's terminology, such as Brave points and Abilinking. There's certainly a significant...

The art in towns is stunning – among the best on 3DS; Defaulting and Braving put a neat spin on turn-based combat

The ‘comedy’ references and gags miss far more than they hit; The game breaks the fourth wall and your immersion with it

A great combat system and world held back by immersion-breaking dialogue choices.

An excellent JRPG for those that like them


" If you're looking at this product you're probably familiar with the first game. If you are then you know what to expect as it's more of the same but at a faster pace and as a more polished product. You'll know if you're into these kinds of games and...

Bravely Second: End Layer - Native American Free JRPG


It has been two years since the events of Bravely Default transpired and once again the kingdom of Luxendarc finds itself in peril. A masked tyrant known as the Kaiser plots to rewrite history by overloading the world's elemental crystals. We've all...

Fun turn based battles . Fifty hours of content . Thirty classes to unlock

Recycles levels from the last game . Needless censorship
