1 hour spent struggling to defeat the title screen and its dangerous music boss.
Still haven't beaten the sprite editor boss.

Don't let the playtime fool you- the mojority of time I spent playing this game was in offline mode, so about 100~ hours are missing there.

Cladun X2 is a game made for those who love customization. Want to smack enemies with a giant wooden spoon? Go for it. Want to play as one of your favorite RPG characters? If you can sprite art it, sure. Add along the fact that levels and dungeons go to an obscenely high number (same guys who made Disgaea, of course this is going to happen,) this is not a game you will get bored of quickly.

it does have one major flaw though- this is a PSP port, and the wonky controls show that immediately. You would think that a game that prides itself on customization would allow you to change the controls.

Another flaw is this does NOT allow you to transfer any of your art or data from the PSP game itself, so if you're buying this a second time you will be starting over from scratch.

All in all, if you can get past the odd controls and you're a sucker for replay/customization, this is the game for you.

Create a group and play through a story or randomly generated dungeons. Interesting party system where your party members support you with increased stats or abilities while you only have to play as one character. You can level your characters and class change them anytime to create the team you want. Lots of different items to allow you to customise your character even more. The combat is quick and easy to learn allowing you to jump right in and have fun.

i don't really have much to contribute that others haven't already said; but if you're waiting for this game to go on sale, don't bother. it's 20 bucks or bust with this one

EDIT: I guess some people have commented that it's recently been on sale on a few other sites. Don't wait for it to go on sale on Steam, I really doubt that's happening.

EDIT 6/27/17: Well, It's on sale. Go wild.

Before thinking I completely recommend this game, hold on for a second and read ahead.

TLDR: Please play the game... But not on Steam

ClaDun x2 IS a fun game. It's exciting to play, has good music and the customization options are through the roof.
Under any normal circumstance, I would recommend this game, but not in this scenario.

20 US dollars is not what this game is worth to any normal player. I would recommend this game on a sale, but there's one problem with that; The publisher has abandoned Steam. There is most likely never going to be a sale for this game ever again and that's the sad part. I want to tell my friends to buy it. I WANT to let others have this on their library, but 20 dollars is WAY too much, especially considering that it's not very well ported. There's flickering with the Steam Overlay and is generally a pain, but I had loads of fun.

I cannot recommend this game for 20 dollars.
I recommend getting the PSP version, whether it's emulated or not is not my choice.

Spoiler alert- i will be going over several things about this game that you might want to just want to skip over if you wish to find out yourself.



Gameplay- A solid 2D labryinth explorer with a few unique twists to it. Such as a "Magic circle" function which is basiclly used to give you some human sheilds that also improve specific stats based on the magic circle design.

Story- This has me personally interested, although i hoped to beat this game before doing this review. Your essentially a prisoner trapped in a seperate dimension reserved for those who commit terrible crimes. The owner of this dimension enlists your help in exploring every labryinth within that dimension in order to reach a monster who dweals on the bottom floor. Spoiler alert, your the one who ends up making the creature, who can destroy the dimension your in and the world your from, wake up in the first place.

Customization- This is so in depth i had to add it as a seperate category. When you start the game you have the limited options of naming yourself, picking a hair color/style, and changing skin color. However, very soon after that you will unlock your own peronal tavern. Within this tavern their are several functions including COMPLETE customization over your characters hair color, style, skin color, eye shape/color, mouth (if you want one that bad :P), and for some of the pros at it making equipment/helms. You can also have complete customization over your characters', yes characters you can make multiple characters for one save file, weapons and armor, however until you unlock a special function further in the game you need the equipment in question to have a customization "Title" (Its really more like an enchantment).

Overall score- 9/10
I really love this game, but their are a few tweaks here and there that i personally think could make this game much better. However, i'm sure that, despite those flaws, many people will have as much enjoyment with this game as i have had.

The controls for this game is a complete train wreck.
I want to enjoy this game, but I would probably have to ignore the abysmal in game controls for something along the lines of Xpadder.
Shame.

I own this for the PSP Vita and PC, i have well over 1k+ hours dumped into the game over the years, It's an extremely replayable top-down rpg with the combat system being very akin to the 2d Zelda games, You compose your party from characters you create in the tavern, you can make them look however you want with the in game editor that is easy to use but very detailed, this editor is also available to make your own gear skins to apply to items gathered while slaying monsters or looting chest. There are Many jobs to choose from, base jobs as well as a few unlockable ones.
You're allowed to Reclass after you reach a certain point in the game, when you choose another job
you retain all abilities/magic, ''Magic circles'' and a fraction of your stats, There are 3 dungeon modes.
Story mode, Ran-Geon ''Random dungeon'' and Tri-Geon ''Triple Dungeons'' (Ran/Tri are both randomised Multi Floored dungeons) Really basic summation of the game, It's worth its ''Steep'' price in my opinion IF you have the option to get it on the PSP/VITA over PC do so, But if PC is your only platform then it's no big deal, it's just as responsive as the handhelds and emulated great as well. Thank you for taking your time to read the review, and good luck!

this game is simple yet engrossing. The play style brings you back to the start of the rpg erra and keeps you comming back for more. ther are a few cons however while the game is fun it is verry repetitive and at times frustrating hours of searching for that one simple uber drop can get old. but over all i think it is worth playing if you are a prefectionist.

Are you creative?Do you enjoy being the main character?Do you like dungeon crawing? Then oh boy do I have the game for you, this game is amazing since it not only involves you drawing your own character in an 8-bit world but manaing yourself around multiple dungeons with only your weapon and your witts! This is a fantastic game to have more if you are an artist!

This game has some very good gameplay concepts, as well as some very good cosmetic concepts. However, it isn't really worth the $19.99 you pay for it, but unfortunately, this game never seems to go on sale. Also, this PSP to PC port is quite shoddy.

A game worthy of the NIS seal, with great music, super deep customization and fun gameplay! Not for casual gamers, it gets really challenging as it turns into an action-roguelike in the last and extra dungeons!

RPG with zelda combat and oodles of customization. The game is easy to learn, difficult to master with some pretty complex character customization. And of course it has the trademark NIS grind.

Overall a pretty enjoyable game, though the port kind of sucks. It's at the native resolution (it's a psp game so yeah...) has some issues in controller configuration (it took me half an hour to figure why buttons weren't binding...), and is locked at 30fps.

If you don't mind the graphics it'll be fun until it gets repetitve. Your mileage will vary on that; the regular dungeons mix things up pretty well, but if you do the randomly generated dungeons they seem to be quite similar most of the time and get old. Nothing like Disgaea's item world at all.

Though just a bit too pricey for its kind in my opinion, it's one of the nicest RPGs I've seen on Steam, with nice character customization, a variety of weapons, and a lot of nice menu options, such as making a sort of "aid" with your other characters to increase your stats and defense.
The only con, is that after a while it feels repetitive, and as such, it's hard to really get through if you feel such. But another plus, is that it always draws me back, and I always love playing it again, even if it's just a silly experience.
Naturally, the controls flow well, and make it enjoyable to do everything, and with every citizen on the island, you'll have some nice dialogue, sometimes awkward, other times weird, but always nice.
And all the classes are nice too.

JRPG lover? You want ACTION-Based RPG and not turn-based? Want the pixels? Love to grind? Don't care about the story? Want to customize your charater's appearance from top to bottom? Even if the story is lackluster and if you're in doubt if this game works, just give the demo a shot.

A brief warning. This game is a PSP port and its' multiplayer features is not implemented fully at the moment because the PSP port's multiplayer works in ad-hoc mode (via playing locally). However, if you want a good JRPG game while your internet is screwed over, pick this game up immediately. People outside the JRPG realm?... Hard to say. There is a tutorial on it, but this game will not hold your hand once you get out of Trial Island which is more than enough for me.

This game can easily fill in 20-40~ hours of gameplay AT THE LEAST. It can go more when you want to reach cap on 8~10 different characters (Level 99 is the cap)

Oh, and not to forget to mention there's a Job Changer, so you can do the same grind, AGAIN! And max initial cap of any stat is 999. The universal cap is 9999. So I still got a longggggggggg way to go.

The learning curve is steep when the "Magic Circle" system is into play. Basically, you can stack your sub-characters together with your main character (the one you physically play with), and the stats get transferred to your Main Character while special tiles like "Growth" will determine your Sub Character's Leveling Parameters.

If this looks like rocket science to you, this may not be the game to pass up and if you want a simpler game, I will forward you to Binding of Isaac or Hack, Slash and Loot. Heck, even Desktop Dungeon (its free, and not on Steam). For a roguelike with a slightly higher learning curve, I recommend Dungeons of Dreadmor.

In addition, I have a 4 1/2 hour stream of a first game impression by me if you want to check that out: http://www.twitch.tv/critical__hit/b/328931483

JRPG Fans wanting a grind? Insta-buy.
Everyone else? Wait for a big sale.
