There's really not much to say about Gamevil's latest release of Zenonia 2. If you were a fan of Zenonia or of Action RPGs in any way, then this sequel is immediately worth grabbing thanks to a plethora of tiny upgrades that have made a great RPG even better. For those that still need convincing, read on.

Much like the first in the series, gameplay revolves around an Action RPG style that's easy to pick up and play. The virtual pad moves your character, while a large action button performs smart actions including attacking or talking to non-player characters. Each of the character classes feel more unique than before which gives you a great incentive to replay the game again and again.

Zenonia's classic SNES-era style of graphics look brilliant and small touches like thought bubbles with expressions have carried over from the original. The environments are rich though it's a shame that some areas are quickly passed over while being used for some of the many in-game cutscenes. New-comers to RPGs will find the mechanics to be relatively easy to grasp and it's fairly hard to mess up your stats and skills if you focus on the ones important to your character.

What pushes Zenonia 2 above the rest is just how complete the game is. Great graphics, gameplay and story are just the beginning, with crafting, online player versus player combat and a customizable interface making this the total package. Fans of the series will have no trouble dropping in and continuing their story and for those not yet initiated, this is definitely a must own game.

The most obvious improvement from the previous version of ZENONIA® 2 is the controls. players have many problems with the control of the games, as most of it seems fit with keypad to match.>> apklibs.com/2012/11/zenonia-2-apk.htmlThe most obvious improvement from the previous version of ZENONIA® 2 is the controls. players have many problems with the control of the games, as most of it seems fit with keypad to match. >> http://www.apklibs.com/2012/11/zenonia-2-apk.html

Well that has been fixed by an update so I guess everyone can just think of this review as if it was made after the update...

Andrew, does this leave off of or connect to the story of the first game at all?
I'm thinking about just buying this, because it seems like a better game overall than the first one, but I'm not sure if I need to the first one to fully understand the story.

It does carry on from the first title, however the game uses a big 'amnesia' plot device to get around needing to play the first game. You get a few added tidbits from playing them in order, but nothing that prevents Zenonia 2 from being just as enjoyable :)

Haha you sound really sleepy. Anyway I think the game is easily one of the best in the appstore and don't get me wrong I love it but one thing I don't like is it feels a bit too repetetive killing your enemies. Just mash the buttons and all. It would be cool if you had two attack buttons and you could do combos and all to make the gameplay more fun.
