* Combat is well done and very little grinding is necessary.
* Spelling in the dialog has improved compared to first game.
* The story is good and is quite long.
* Great graphics and music.
* Caves are no longer so dark that you can 't see your way around.
* History tab in main menu helps you remember what's going on in the story and what you should be doing next.

* Characters are bland and one of the main characters is down right unlikeable.
* No game play clock.
* The story is to predictable and lacks depth.
* Items have strange names and no in combat descriptions, which makes knowing what the item does during combat difficult unless you memorize the descriptions.
* No character combat A.I.
* Pet system is a total waste of time and is an annoying distraction.

The story is not anything new but isn't bad either, being predictable isn't so much the problem either. What hurts the story is depth, the reasons for the characters to do what their doing through out the game seems to bland and generic. Jurio (14 year old boy) and Chris (15 year old girl) are to undertake a coming of age pilgrimage, they are to visit 5 shrines and by using a holy relic called the silver dagger receive visions from the magic mirrors located at each of the shrines. Their visions seem to be linked to the Moonlight Witch, a young woman that 20 years prior was on a pilgrimage on the same route. The Moonlight Witch left prophecies that only now are starting to make some sense. The other thing that hurts the story is Chris one of the main characters, she is totally unlikeable. Her negative and belittling attitude towards Jurio who is a great character makes it hard to believe they would travel together.

HASH(0x98105a80) out of 5 stars Slow to start, but picks up later April 6 2007
By Hilary - Published on Amazon.com
As with any game, Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch has its good and its bad.


Decent storyline, even though it takes awhile to really get to.

Even though some of the characters are rather exaggerated, some of them are quite fun.


Characters, while they all have their own personalities, aren't always written all that believably.

Boring game play: go to town, get mission. Complete mission, go back to town. Repeat throughout game.

Long ending scene. You'll be ready to move on to your next adventure by the time you've finished watching the end movie.

If you're looking for an outstanding rpg to lose yourself in, keep looking. If you're just in the market for something to tide you over until the next big thing comes along, Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch is worth a shot.

HASH(0x98105e88) out of 5 stars Classic RPGers Will Love This June 28 2009

If you were caught up in the original RPG's, like Final Fantasy for the NES or PS1, you will enjoy this franchise. The graphics are cute and it is a typical Japanese RPG. I was addicted to Legends of Heroes III, that I had to go and get one and two. They don't go hand in hand together, but they are entertaining and have wonderful translation mess ups! The story line is good, not great, but some of the translations make up for that. I don't like to give spoilers, so I will keep this review simple. I will say that it is fun.

HASH(0x97f5f2dc) out of 5 stars fun, but too short July 15 2006
By matt.mingkee - Published on Amazon.com
I received this game last Friday, but I finished this in a week (2-3 hour gameplay/day)

if you played the last one (Legends of Heroes I), the gameplay is the same, but pet system is a little bit different (you can monitor and feed it to get some status help)

the summon monsters are good at first (you may need a lot of mind potions), but they don't grow throughout the game, and become useless on final boss fight

the storyline is OK, but it may be kinda messed up in Castle Roudo

however, the ending is worth to watch, it's long like the last ver, but it's not as good as the last version

if you played the last ver, this one you should play

The Legend of Heroes has 4 volumes, this one is volume 2, and 2 more are coming in the future

HASH(0x98105bd0) out of 5 stars Good Sequel July 20 2014
By Jeremy Michael Gallen - Published on Amazon.com
The Legend of Heroes is one of Nihon Falcom's flagship series alongside Ys and Dragon Slayer, which the Legend of Heroes series was part of before becoming its own franchise. The second series of games in The Legend of Heroes series is known as the Gagharv Trilogy, with North America seeing all three thanks to Bandai-Namco, although they got the order of the games wrong, first localizing the second game of the trilogy, A Tear of Vermillion while passing it off as the first game in the franchise. The Legend of Heroes II: Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch, despite its localized title is actually the first installment of the Gagharv trilogy, providing an experience on par with its predecessors.

The battle system is almost exactly the same as it was in Vermillion, with enemies being visible on fields and in dungeons, charging the player's party if their levels are low and running away when their levels are high, always a welcome system. Furthermore, the player has a pet they can feed outside battle for occasional effects in battle like increased attack and defense. When executing commands such as attacking, using magic, using free special skills, and using items, characters and enemies move around the battlefield like in the Lunar games. The battle system works nicely, with only some minor flaws such as the absence of a turn order meter.

Controls are just as solid, with a generally easy direction on where to go next with some exceptions, although automaps would have been helpful in the more confusing dungeons, particularly those towards the end of the game. Still, the game interfaces well with the player.

The story is run-of-the-mill, focusing on a pair of pilgrims named Jurio and Chris as they go on a pilgrimage to several elemental shrines. Players can import data from Vermillion to update the in-game timeline that records events that happen in the game. The plot isn't anything to write home about, and the lack of links to the other games isn't surprising since Moonlight Witch is the first of the Gagharv trilogy, but it glues the game together decently. The localization does have some flagrant errors and is bland, but luckily doesn't severely hurt the game.

As usual, Falcom does a good job with the game's music, with plenty of decent tracks that always fit the mood, with the visuals looking nice as well despite the odd slant of character sprites as they move towards the left and right edges of the screen.

Finally, the game is about twenty to thirty hours long, with few sidequests of which to speak and little replay value. Overall, Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch is another decent Legend of Heroes games, with simple but enjoyable gameplay and nice graphics and music shining the most, although it does have issues involving its plot and localization. Those who can look past these flaws, however, and enjoyed Vermillion, will likely enjoy this installment of the Gagharv trilogy as well.

The Good:
+Decent simple gameplay.
+Nice music and graphics.

The Bad:
-Narrative could have been better.
-Localization has some minor issues.
-Some confusing dungeons.
-Not much replay value.

I found this game to be fun. In this game there are two characters, Chris and Jurio. You go through the story like in many other classic RPG games where you make contact with enemies. In this game the enemies will either ignore you, run away or attack you depending on their ability to defeat you. You use weapons and potions to defeat your enemy. What's interesting in this game which I find to be great is the pet dog, cat or rabbit. Your dog plays like the dog in Fable II where it can sniff out items out for you. It also helps defensively or offensively. I like it when dogs are added to the party as they can be quite useful as in Fallout 3. Although the dog in that game was quite fragile.
Some people say that the game is short but it depends on how you play the game. Of course, as in games like Fable II, if you skip all the side quests or minor battles it will be short. But, I, for one, like to take in all of what the game has to offer. This game can quite literally take you thirty hours to complete. So if you are on the fence because of the length of the game, this game can supply you with many hours of gaming. This game series is sure to become a classic.
