Kenji Ito does it again!!

Reader review by Josh Brown

Romancing SaGa 2 was a game that was never released in the States, along with its other two counterparts Romancing SaGa and Romancing SaGa 3. Music-wise, Romancing SaGa 2 had the best of the best.

The compositions are as good as they come, with such masterpieces as "Heartful Tears" (which U.S. gamers should recognize from Final Fantasy Legend II) and the short "Song of Everlasting Battles". Once again, Ito proves himself very capable of handling battle themes, as the four that are on the soundtrack are all quite good. "The Seven Heroes' Battle" is my personal favorite, although "The Last Battle" is no slouch either.

There are several cameos from past works, especially SaGa 2 (also known as FF Legend II). The previously mentioned "Heartful Tears" is one of them, but fans of the Gameboy series should also recognize the excellent "The Legend Begins".

There are a few disappointments, but not very many. First of all, the beginning track combines several pieces into one, including the introduction and, oddly enough, the battle music. While it does turn out well, this can be inconvenient if you want to hear the battle music on its own. Also, there are a few duds, such as the boring "Mermaid Legend", which sounds like something out of Final Fantasy V. Overall, though, Romancing SaGa 2 is one of Squaresoft's best, and definitely a soundtrack worth picking up.
