Demon Gaze 2 (Review)
Demon Gaze II takes place several years after the original, and while some characters from the first entry return, the story of the game is largely separate.
The story begins with the player trapped in a cell after being captured on a mission. After a sequence of events, you learn that you are part of a rebel group tasked with freeing Asteria City from the clutches of Sirius Magnastar — a demon gazer who has used his powers to brainwash nearly all of the city’s inhabitants. Fortunately, you were also made a demon gazer during your time in captivity, so it falls on you to stop Magnastar’s ambitions.
If there is one thing that Demon Gazer II has going for it is it’s streamlined design. Everything is clear cut and simple, and this fact is made immediately clear with the game’s story. We don’t have to wait to get clued in on what’s going on. Players are immediately told who the enemy is, what he’s doing and what’s needed to stop him — no guesswork required.
