The result at the ending is still the same, but how you get there is up to you.

Compared to most linear RPGs such as Final Fantasy, Saga Frontier 2 is a breath of fresh air. While the visuals are nowhere close to the quality you would find in other SquareEnix games, the "Generation" system is fairly unique. There are two main characters, Gustave and Wil Knights. You begin the game with Gustave as a young prince, and Wil Knights as an explorer. There is a world map covered with possible "chapters" in the story advancement that you can choose at your leisure. Instead of following a set path as you would in a traditional RPG, you can choose to play either scenario at anytime and progress through the years with one character while doing the different scenario at another time. The years progress, the characters get older, and even have children of their own whom you can control. The music is not overly suffocating, but not amazing in this game. The combo system, character roles, and amount of characters is definitely a plus for this game however. It seems totally random at first but by switching up techniques and spells, you can create massive, damaging combos on your opponents. It is also welcome to see all your enemies on the screen and choose to avoid them, rather than getting forced into random battles.

A solid game but not for everybody.
