    If you are a fan of the Action-RPG genre of games, then Dark Cloud is the game for you.

    Rated on April 12, 2008 by Dead_red_bed

    Dark Cloud is a game for the PS2 that integrates three genres seemingly incapable of being compatible with one another. However, Dark Cloud merges world design, combat, and a great storyline all in on...

    So much more than a dungeon crawler, but a dungeon crawler nevertheless.

    Rated on September 11, 2009 by life_glider
