Developed by SoftMax, the team behind the original 'Magna Carta: Tears of Blood,' and powered by the Unreal Engine 3, Magna Carta II combines a deep storyline, beautifully detailed graphics and a unique active turn battle system to create a fresh new RPG experience.

Magna Carta II introduces an original storyline driven by intense themes of love, hate, politics, betrayal and the ultimate question of choosing one's own fate. Players are immersed in the world of the Lanzheim Continent, a conflict-ridden land deeply divided by a fierce civil war. Powered by the Unreal Engine 3 and featuring character designs by famed Korean artist Hyung-Tae Kim, the game bears a striking visual style unlike any other RPG through its blend of photo-realism and Japanese manga influences. The deeply emotional story is driven by beautifully rendered CGI cut-scenes featuring fully voiced dialogue to draw players into the immersive experience.

Delivering more than 40 hours of gameplay, Magna Carta 2 features a unique battle system which combines strategic turn-based battles and real-time gameplay, creating a fresh twist on the traditional RPG formula. The game seamlessly blends world navigation and battles as everything happens in the same environment with no load screens or abrupt changes in the action when a fight begins or ends. Players can utilise objects found in the environment to their advantage and likewise, creatures and field objects dynamically react to the player's actions. A free-roaming camera further adds to the unrestricted interaction with the world. Players are also given flexible control over their party with the ability to pre-assign attributes for each AI character and the freedom to easily switch control between all the characters at any time.


What the...? How have I never heard of this game :-?

Looks like it got an average review from IGN but user comments are positive. I think this commenter has hit the nail on the head:

Why do reviewers always seem to do this to RPGs? An FPS seems to be … Why do reviewers always seem to do this to RPGs? An FPS seems to be designated as 'original, revolutionary and ground-breaking' if the player gets a different kind of gun, but an RPG is termed as boring simply because it contains certain elements that have been used before?I have been playing RPGs since the days of Shining Force on the Sega Megadrive, and, if I were to buy games based solely on the reviews, I would have an extremely small game collection.I recently purchased Halo3:ODST, and I can tell you that the only reason I even bothered to finish the game was pure stubbornness, as I figured that I'd forked out the cash, so I was going to damn well finish it, despite the game periodically sending me to sleep. No matter how 'ground-breaking' an FPS may be, an FPS will never bring a smile to may face the way an RPG does. And while I may enjoy it for the first hour or so, I know that I will never find that element that makes me care whether I finish it or not.I got MC2 at the weekend, and have so far enjoyed every minute of the twelve hours I have spent so far playing it. Yep ,it's got elements that have been used before, but like many people who enjoy RPGs, I LIKE those elements, they're what made the genre so popular in the first place. If you enjoy RPGs, and enjoyed Lost Odyssey and Last Remnant, you'll enjoy this.Posted by: Uber-Tech on November 30, 2009 02:06 PDT

I would get this, but just don't have the time for big rpg's anymore. I've got FFXIII on pre-order and when that's done it time to get Mass Effect 2.

looks interesting

Just got to wait for it to come out on the right system; PS3 and i'll buy.


I will jump in when the price hits sub £13 for sure but knowing Namco, their games always disappear from the market afterwards, I am very tempted to go for this now... Thanks. heat & Rep added.

Its on the right system if its ported the ps3 version would be shocking like every other ported game to PS3 :p:thumbsup:

Magna Carta: Crimson Stigmata came out on the PS2. And like most RPGs which come out on other systems, there will by more add-ons within the game =P


I will jump in when the price hits sub £13

wont happen

I'd like to buy, but dont have time for these kinda long winded RPGs. Good price though. Can't see it dropping more than this. It'll just sell out, then disappear from the market.


wont happen

I guarantee this game will be at the bottom on the bargain bin in 6-8 months and you'll be able to pick it up for around £8.

LOL @ Wont happen.
