The game is played for the most part in third person, from the outset of the game you could be mistaken for thinking that Summoner 2 is not an RPG as there is a sequence where Maia is defending her ship against an attack from some pirates. This does provide a purpose; you will learn the basics of combat through this starting sequence. This will also be your first encounter that will introduce the problems you can have with the camera, but you are able to adjust the camera with the right analogue stick. This is not something that you will do by choice; you will have to adjust the camera for the combat scenes as you will not be able to see all of the enemies at one time as enemies will attack from all different directions. When in battle you will notice that Maia and the other characters move quite awkwardly and sometimes you will think enemies attacks are missing you but in actual fact they are dealing out some serious blows. This is one thing that can be overcome with time as you will get used to these little niggles and soon after you will be using deeper aspects of combat and using three character in your team at once to kick the baddies bottoms.
