Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord

Set a few years after Tears to Tiara: Garland of Earth, this latest installment holds almost nothing in common with the original. The game is set in the same world and has a few elements that go back to the first game, but otherwise operates as its own unique game rather than a sequel. Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord tells an exotic story steeped in Mediterranean history. The story centers around Hamilar Barca, who must raise an army in order to help free the kingdom of Hispania from the Holy Empire. He is joined by important allies such as the goddess of fertility, and Tarte, who will help him stop the Holy Empire.

Tedious beginning, worth it in the end

The intro of this story is very long—an estimated four hours of game play before you get to take any real actions of your own. In these four hours you will get to do 3 tutorial style battles that teach you how to fight, otherwise it’s mostly reading.

This is the most tedious part of the game, and it may tempt some players to quit rather than see it through. The good news however, is that the rest of the game is very rewarding.

Traditional Strategy RPG

After the initial intro period, the game shifts gears into a more traditional strategy RPG. This includes a map with points the player can move around on, and more points opening up as the game progresses. The battles are turn based, but unlike many where one character goes at a time, the entire side can move at once for their turn. If you’ve ever played Fire Emblem, it’s similar in that respect. The game utilizes different elements, which are weak to certain elements, and strong against others. Each turn one element will get boosts, and in order to win you’ll need to figure out how to use this system to increase your own strength.

Another useful feature of gameplay is the “Rewind” system. This system allows you to go back to the beginning of the battle (or 20 turns back) and change things to hopefully change the outcome. It won’t help if you simply rewind and hope things turn out differently, but can be effective if you change the location of units that were destroyed in later battles.

High Quality Gaming Experience

Atlus has spent a lot of time on this game, and it shows in the overall quality. The carefully researched historical elements, excellent voice acting, and great character design all work together to make an enjoyable game.

8

This is overall a solid hybrid game, combining the best of both visual novels and turn based strategy RPGs. While the tedious beginning can definitely be a turn off for many, the rest of the game is very entertaining. It provides an even mix of story telling and game play, with relatively few problems.

Pros

  • Engaging plot
  • Great voice acting and artwork
