    what's up people I'm shadow Ely HD for

    the buttonsmashs calm and here is our

    review for demon gaze 2




    as a guide coming from 2014's demon gaze

    I was excited to play its sequel I

    didn't have much hope for demon gates

    one as I kind of bought it on impulse

    and pretty much thought I was going to

    leave it on the backlog of shame forever

    at the plane for a couple of hours I was


    I found myself liking the dungeon

    crawling and the challenge that demon

    gates provided well I say challenge

    because there is a good amount of BS

    going on with demon gates ones combat

    system I have memories of me struggling

    not because I was under level but

    because enemies will be on some crazy

    monsters can kidnap a party member

    taking them away for a few turns

    completely screwing over your party's

    dynamic they can use attack that screws

    up your formation you know if your party

    putting magic nukes and healers on the

    front lines to get utterly destroyed

    some attacks can even KO your party

    members leaving them knocked out for a

    turn Marsha's can call on more monsters

    for help that can potentially lead to an

    endless amount of enemies being thrown

    at you enemies can also defend the get

    your attacked without warning or

    guarding at all they can change their

    formations by going to the back of the

    line put it in their melee fires out of

    reach the spot with that two enemy

    heroes will stay in the back healing the

    rest of their party in the front while

    they cause damage to you but they get

    healed up and then end up calling for

    more Hamas just to help ya I read some

    pretty hopeless situations in deeming

    aids one and that's all on top of

    enemies causing confused and paralysis

    poison and other status ailments with

    their normal attacks and it was all

    thrown at you pretty early in the game

    demon gauge one does not hold your hand

    at all and of course you just get some

    monsters and demons out just flat-out

    stronger than you and will on you

    literally so why would I go back to

    demon gaze after all that why would I

    put myself through all that trouble

    again with the sequel demon gaze - why

    because I'm a glutton for punishment

    that's why


    oops wrong channel you are the demon

    gazer a person with the power to capture

    demons in using the fight alongside you

    in battle you joined the ranks of a

    ragtag group of revolutionaries we want

    to overthrow the main bad guy

    Magne star who was using the city and

    sacrifices innocence to achieve his own

    personal goal I would say it's a rather

    standard setup nothing really stands out

    about demon gazes to story and stuff for

    Watch video from 03:00 - 6:00

    the fact that they using its sort of

    radio podcast to inform the city of

    Magisters evil deeds some of the

    important plot points are rather

    predictable none of it is executed in a

    matter that will make it seem more than

    what it is or even entertaining as a

    matter of fact this game has the

    audacity to throw the same plot twist

    point and the first game at you it uses

    it here like it's fresh and new

    seriously you have to be completely

    oblivious not to realize that one person

    helping you is not who they seem but the

    rather subpar a predictable story one

    would hope that the characters will come

    to save the day

    nope they are not anything special or

    even fun to watch at all they all fall

    under the usual tropes and I usually

    wouldn't mind a trope or two if it's

    done in an attending matter at the end

    of the day demon gates to story isn't

    really worth writing about

    it says the backseat to the game playing

    dungeon crawling but hey it's there the

    soundtrack of demon gates 2 is good and

    it's even better if you like Vocaloid

    music the Vocaloid ia lends her voice to

    most of music in the game and I got a

    whim it

    I don't like Vocaloid music that much

    but it is nice to hear the voice acting

    is at the par and each voice actor

    delivers their line with just the right

    amount of feelings so you can clearly

    see that they care about what's being

    said no boys stand out as good nor bad

    it's just fine if you want that Japanese

    experience this game does have dual

    audio hell you can even change the game

    text to Japanese for all you extremists

    out there I guess in the dungeons the

    game is rather ok looking I didn't

    expect much from the game's graphics

    coming from demon's gaze 1 so there's

    really no surprise here you'll be

    walking around in a maze like dungeons

    from first-person perspective for mostly

    a time spent in this game and they all

    have their own unique theme ranging from


    see lit City to a deep underwater area

    with pirate skeletons and mermaids to a

    demon infested castle ultimately they

    look okay but it's clear they didn't

    really improve much in this department

    from its predecessor as far as the

    artwork goes if there's a lot better I

    like the games general looking style

    with its character designs and better

    you have to the artwork for you enemies

    in looks superb with a little bit of

    movement animation the animation help

    make the artwork almost come to life and

    now it's always interested to see what

    new enemies will pop up and how they

    will look with each new dungeon I

    visited the gameplay is where demon's

    gaze too shines and frustrates depending

    on how you look at it as you can see

    this game is a rather traditional

    turn-based dungeon crawling RPG you'll

    be going through each dungeon to find a

    demon's circles to activate and then

    fight the boss at the end of the dungeon

    demon's gaze - lets you go out with a

    party of five characters you the demon

    gazer and four other demons you acquire

    during the course of your journey as

    soon as the game starts you have the

    option and choose between good neutral

    and evil depending on what you choose

    affects what skills you learn in a

    demon's you capture and learn as well

    goodwill that you have build towards

    Watch video from 06:00 - 9:00

    healing and defensive skills neutral

    will give you a decent amount of

    attacking skills and healing skills and

    evil will eventually give you the best

    offensive skills and matches in the game

    each demon you capture specializes in a

    certain area of combat you have the

    regular melee fires who can go out on

    the front lawn and attack magic users

    who of course use magic to attack

    enemies at a distance and a paladin who

    can take attacks well it's a job the

    best choose a party that gels together

    to get through the dungeons and boss

    battles but however this game doesn't

    exactly feel balanced I found myself

    taking the two staple party members

    throughout the whole game and I highly

    doubt anyone playing on a normal

    difficulty up will go without using a

    paladin to take attacks and one other

    magic user - gasps holy shield to guard

    against a first round of enemy's attacks

    everything I said in the beginning of

    the video with some of the crazy stuff

    going on a demon's case one applies here

    but I guess at this point that's pretty

    much what charms people the demon games

    there are just moments of complete

    bs if you get ambushed there's a good

    chance that enemy party will destroy you

    in the blink of an eye

    enemies can sometimes attack many times

    in a turn and sometimes hard to

    determine what causes it I did debug the

    enemy speed and somewhat found a

    difference in frequency in their attacks

    but often it was crazy when the boss

    will just spam multiple attacks and

    multiple party members just killing them

    instantly the key to winning and demon

    gates too is to keep your gear upgraded

    and making sure you upgrade your demon

    stats as well

    there are demon circles tulu lies and

    dungeons to find more and better

    equipment if you place a weapon gem or

    armor gem in these circles you fight a

    random enemy and after the battle it

    will reward you with the equipment with

    a gem you inserted there are special

    gems that you can get to make stronger

    enemies appear or increase the amount of

    equipment you get from these circles

    also you have the precious artifact gems

    these will give you artifact equipment

    that will allow you to use useful and

    powerful skills on any character the

    game doesn't give you many artifact gems

    so you have to be really careful when

    you use them it's best a couple of them

    with gems that increase the number of

    equipment you get from demon circles so

    you can have a shot at getting really

    good ones it's pretty much best to save

    scum if you're going to use artifact

    gems properly equipping the right ones

    and even one character can completely

    change the dynamic of the party for the

    better I suggest trying to get slashed 1

    + / 2 to deal with enemy mobs more

    easier and later down the line Astro

    force to have your frontline attackers

    hit from the back line to up where your

    equipment you need to break down your

    excess and useless equipment so you can

    gain ether from that weapon type or

    armor you break down you can then use

    that either to upgrade any weapon or

    armor 10 times to increase its stats in

    order to upgrade your damage you need to

    perform maintenance this pretty much

    involves you playing a slight minigame

    and where you have to find a sweet spot

    on a demon's body to make their

    affection level go up upgrading your

    equipment and demons will keep your

    Watch video from 09:00 - 12:00

    chances at winning a high but there are

    certain variables that can just throw

    you for a loop but I suppose this is all

    part of the fun in demon's gaze trying

    to use your party to get to the

    challenge in boss fights this game has

    now liked and enjoyed it for that

    there are some translation issues with

    certain skills and the DLC has issues

    which might result in you not being able

    to load your latest saved game

    unfortunately the game does suffer from

    a notable glitch on the ps4 version at

    the time of uploading this video there

    is a glitch that will pretty much allow

    you to have infinite money this glitch

    is not done a way to exploit the game so

    just going out of your way to trigger

    the glitch at the bowels you receive

    money like in any normal RPG but here

    what's given is an absolutely absurd

    amount to a point where you just never

    have to worry about money this a glitch

    is not found in the Vita version of the

    game so it's not purposely part of the

    game's design you might be saying to

    yourself if I had no choice but to have

    infinite money why didn't I just have a

    complete full stock of items and run

    through the game easily yeah I probably

    could have done that but then our minds

    will be playing the game on the easiest

    difficulty and to me that's just no fun

    at all I ultimately thought demon gaze

    too was pretty much an expansion of

    demon gates 1 there is no need to play

    demon gates 1 as this game story stands

    by itself there are characters from the

    first game that will appear here but

    it's not like you absolutely need to

    know them in the first game to

    appreciate them here I do miss the

    character customization for all your

    party members from demon's gaze 1 you

    can change the look of your character

    and demons here but the options are so

    limited they might as well just not

    included it in the game at all it really

    does feel half-baked if you really want

    to take a shot at demon gates - just

    know it's no cakewalk this is a rather

    tough game it doesn't hold your hand and

    you will get slaughtered at times almost

    to a point where you want to put the

    game down and it will go on your backlog

    forever however there are four

    difficulty options so you can tailor

    make the experience to just how you want

    it I guess and that's all for my review

    1. OMG! the jrpg GAWD does reviews for Buttonsmasher?! Awesome! I think this review summarizes the pros/cons of Demon Gaze 1&2 well, in addition to what a first time player can expect from a dungeon crawler game like this. I also like that there's no sugar-coating of flaws here; Demon Gaze 2 has a niche audience, but i think this review could help someone weigh whether or not they want to dive into this game, or the genre in general.

    2. I think i accidently came across the glitch bc i was at 60k at 1 point… went into the Dragonwood dungeon and came out with 2mil?

      I was like "what… the fuck.. happened?"

    3. My God man, how do you not have more viewers? I have been a gamer…well since the Nes and Master System. I became a hardcore gamer in 1989 with the Sega Genesis. I have heard many reviews, read countless magazines, and even written a few reviews myself (my first was FFVII in 1997). From one who has been a gamer for well over 30 years and one that plays every genre….excellent job. I appreciate the tips side of the review.

      I'm picked thid up for my fiancee who is a ganer as well. She prefers RPG's to anything and we have everything you can possibly imagine. Hell, we have a room dedicated to all things retro gaming. A full sized arcade complete with stand up coin-op machines. As well as having two of every console including the enhanced models connected to two 4K UHD screens. We love gaming and I'm showing her your video. So consider my upvote and subscription as two!
