Graphics: 10/10 Animated sprites, lot of movies with over 160 pictures!

Gameplay: 8/10 Controls are a little better and there are two difficulty levels, but battles are too slow on the black TI-83+.

Storyline: 10/10 Unbelievable, even better than fftom.

Replay value: 9/10 If you have enough courage to re-install the game, try the game at normal difficulty with the new cheats code awaiting you.

Overall: 9.25/10: One of the best TI-RPG I ever played! This is a must!

If you haven't played the first “Final Fantasy: Tales of Magic” series, then get ready to be shocked. First off, I didn't know that a stick figure can be made into a cool graphic, but that is what you are on the main map. Besides that, though, you have a really awesome storyline, smooth battle engine, astonishing graphics, and so much more. As you level up, you gain more and more abilities. The cut scenes no longer have to be uploaded separately, but are instantly accessed once you beat that portion!

There are, however, a few downsides. “FF:ToM2” is an extremely large file. Basically, you have to devote your entire calculator (unless you're gifted with a Silver Edition) to this program. And that's in each of its four pieces. So, don't expect to be playing much else for a while. Also, when leveling up before a boss can get a little tedious without some more pizzazz. Sometimes I was begging for a little more interactions with the NPCs, but once I beat the boss it was almost made up for.

Programming wise, the author has used the calculator to its fullest extent. He has added such details, including having the characters blink while it waits for you to do something. Also, you get to buy weapons, keep your stats over each part of the story, and see cut scenes like none other I've encountered.

You truly will be amazed. This is not for the casual gamer, though, sporting a huge playability time and the near devotion of your calculator for that time. Although, it's not like you'll want to stop anyways.

My rating: 9/10

“Final Fantasy: Tales of Magic 2” is just about the greatest calculator game that has ever existed. With its 5+ hours of game play, high addiction, and awesome graphics, this game is a must have.

Graphics/Features: 10/10 - Awesome graphics! Though the overworld walking graphics aren't great (just a stick figure), the cut scenes and battle scenes make up for them big time. I love the old RPG style where you can use two or more people to attack; it makes you have to strategize your attacks and plan them carefully so you'll still have time to heal. A drawback is that you can't see the enemy's health, but that's natural in many RPG games, so you'll have to deal with it.

Fun Level: 10/10 - Highly addicting and the story plot is very moving. The only slight problem is every once in a while you can't read the words that are displayed in the cut scenes.

Accessibility (How easy is it to download/install? Any errors?): 9/10 - Unfortunately, the filesize is huge, so you can only play 1/4 of the game at a time. Thus, I had to come home from school everyday and spend thirty minutes of my time to download all the files. But nevertheless, the fun makes up for it.

Overall: 10/10 - Awesome! I hope I can find another game that matches the quality of this one!

“Final Fantasy: Tales of Magic 2,” the sequel to “Final Fantasy: Tales of Magic,” has many features in it that greatly separate it from other calculator games. Some of its features include basing its running speed on calculator model (TI83+ or TI83+SE) you are using, status effects such as sleep and poison, agility based combat system, animated magic, combos, and a larger world map than the original game. Since it uses ASM libraries, “FF:ToM2” allows for many things that BASIC alone cannot accomplish.

Overall, I give “FF:ToM2” a 9.9 out of 10.
