    Like the original SNES made Breath of Fire, this vastly superior sequal is going to the GBA as well. There's no denying that this is a very good game, the music and graphics are all classic SNES and so are completely ... Read Full Review

    A better improvement than the first game and slightly easier too.

    I found this game at Toys R' Us for cheap and I thought: the first game was too hard that I had to flog it off, I'll give this a try. Admittedly this game was good, in fact better than the first BoF. The first thing that... Read Full Review

    BOFII is good RPG for GBA, too bad they didnt put any sidequests as an extra for releasing it to GBA from SNES. Amazing storyline here, good battlesystem, and good soundtrack. Decent game but the storyline rescues this g... Read Full Review

    If you can look past the poor translation, there is excellent gameplay and story to be had here.

    Gameplay: Not much can be said about a classic turn-based RPG in terms of gameplay. You have your random battles, dungeon exploration, overworld exploration and finally, a menu screen which is simple and easy to navigate... Read Full Review

    Very long game and kinda makes you think...

    Well lets start off by saying, there really isn’t any difference in the GBA version and the SNES version. Both have similar controls and same old same old rpg battle system. The actual story is not half bad. It is ki... Read Full Review
