    this game is not as good as the original, one reason for that is, when you merge mosnters together, they dont change in look one bit. (unless of course, you somehow get the kalma with the power to age them all the way to... Read Full Review

    A mythical role play beast-raising adventure with some crazy replay value, but doesn't quite stand as a sequel.

    (+) Deep and addictive beast raising game play; stunning visuals and beautiful forests to explore through; likable characters blend the story greatly (-) merging process not as dynamic as its PS1 predecessor For be... Read Full Review

    I heard positive things of jade cocoon and this sequel misses the hardcore features....more mainstream audience RPG.

    THE GOOD: A vast array of monsters to train each with their own stlye and flare. A few old favorites make it to the PS 2 like Levant, Mu, and Ra. The Sweet Knights are cute (they remind me of misty and her sisters from ... Read Full Review

    Interesting battle mechanics with a few flaws.

    When it comes down to Jade Cocoon 2, it does find a way to offer something new for the player, however with some of the battle mechanics, it doesn't always be in your favour and sometimes the flaws feel more punishing th... Read Full Review

    "So...Whatcha gonna do?"

    "So...Whatcha gonna do?" That's a question often heard in this game, but my question to you really is "Whatcha gonna do?" Jade Cocoon 2 is considerably different from its predecessor [Released in 1998] and personally I f... Read Full Review

    Good, but...

    I've been looking forward to a decent monster hunting and raising game on the PS2 for a while. Jade Cocoon 2 fulfills that role pretty decently with a unique combat system. The encounters aren't random, but I do wish the... Read Full Review

    For a Pokémon ripoff it's still an okay game.

    It's time to hunt kalma! The divine beasts of Jade Cocoon had been sealed away in the Wormhole Forest, but they've been trying to make their escape back into the human world. Some kalma have even taking to mimicking huma... Read Full Review

    How far do you want to go!?!

    This game is addictive and just right for a total array of playing styles. If you want to raise a team and beat the last boss and call it a day--OK. If you want to grind and get all of the many many extra collectable i... Read Full Review
