Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil (2001)
Developer: Namco Ltd.
Platform: PlayStation 2
Purchase Date: 07/26/2001

Quite literary, a dreamy platformer.

Why can't newer console Sonic games be like this? Klonoa 2 is a 2D platformer with 3D graphics and it plays like a dream. The gameplay is kept very simple with the usual tricky jumps and a fun grab attack to eliminate enemies. The soundtrack is soothing and catchy and the graphics are colorful for the most part: I don't particularly enjoy the "cave" levels that they have included within almost all the stages. The only other thing that keeps this from being perfect is that it's a bit lengthy. I miss the good old days when games can be completed in an hour or two. I like being able to get the full experience of a game in one sitting and then playing the game over and over again. For fans of epic boss battles, those can be found here as well.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
