Finally after owning this game on PS2 since I was a kid I finally beat this game on ps4 after a 4 day grind. I must say I enjoyed it but not even close to as much as the original. I liked the characters and all the touchy feels for sure, but the georama was too hard to grasp as a kid. I have 4 FAQ's, walkthrough, checklists, etc open for all of this micromanaging nonsense... But I didn't miss a single picture! I'm still thinking about platinuming the game but golfing for the medals looks unbearable.

Gotta say I will always find the first game as the definitive classic.. the town building and atlamillia was just more basic and satisfying in my opinion. Also are the games connected in anyway? Osborn threw me off.

Good game I hope they make a 3rd one eventually.


Spheda for the medals isn’t the hard part of 100%. IMO it was the monster leveling to get all the medals in chapter 7 and all the item clear medals. Not really hard, just tedious. You can do it!!!

I honestly have no idea how anyone could've 100% this game with no guide when it first came out. Thanks for the confidence, I think I'm gonna take a couple days of a break to run through destroy all humans 2 quick and then go back. I'm just so overwhelmed. Pics. Invents. Monsters. Medals. Golf. Super long last dungeon. Weapon building (the super fun part that I find satisfying) oh and don't forget fishing contest! Maaaaaan..

I was aiming for the platinum trophy, but I couldn't believe how slow the monster leveling is. I've been stalled in chapter 7 for months. :/

Level 5 claims that they are not related in any way but being spiritual successors, but I personally think they are. IMO the conclusion of Dark Cloud 1 sets up an alternate universe in which DC2 becomes possible, and thus certain characters appear in both games and the various references between the two make sense.

Nice theory. Mine is that maybe dark cloud 1 was a side story during the future of 2. Since Osmond is found in the future as far as I know. Maybe the genie is resurrected after the mine. Idk. Like you said level 5 said they're not connected but I like fan theory

It is the number 1 on my all time favourite games list. Only this and maybe Ogre Battle 64 have the most hours of playthroughs for me, and I have 1000's of hours in some games

I agree that this was a great game, but the first is just a bit better IMO. The second has a lot more bells and whistles: it's prettier, more sidequests/minigames/things to do, but the core dungeon crawling and town-building (especially) was just better in the first game. I had more of a connection to the towns you build in the first game since you're reconstructing people's actual homes and their belongings. In DC2 you're placing a bunch of buildings and placing random people from your hometown in them. No connection to the proceedings. Just my 2 cents.
