Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 - True Ending/Overall Thoughts (Spoiler-Free)

Beat Copen's route and then got the true ending on Gunvolt's side. (Copen felt kinda OP btw and I didn't even use much in the way of upgrades or the like.)

The ending wasn't just bittersweet, it felt kind of empty and... just not very well-done overall.

To start, this game seems very independent of the first still, like they hadn't really considered the sequel when making the first game. I don't remember Mytyl being a thing at all before, for instance. But ok, whatever. Happens.

Then the actual ending didn't really answer various questions, felt kinda nonsensical, was a bit anti-climactic in a sense, and overall it was just... not a great ending. Not an impressive one, not one that was particularly memorable, not a happy/sweet one, it was just kinda disappointing, not terribly so, but I value final bosses and endings because I feel like if a game is well-concluded it makes my memories and overall impression of it that much more positive, and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is a fun game overall (even if it's mostly just action with some weird bosses and stuff), so yeah.

Fun though it was I don't think I'll be too excited for a sequel though (and there's potential for it), not if it's going to be more of this kinda writing. The little chats are sometimes nice and 8-4 added a lot of flair to the dialog so it's not really that (yes it was 8-4, I saw as much at the end, which explains why the text and voices hardly matched up, if at all, lol), it's moreso the overall story that's weak, and I don't see that being fixed. I almost wish they went for something simpler where it's easier to enjoy it: a simple, well-executed story is often better to me than a slightly more complex story that's trying too hard to be cool or whatever

That's all I got for ramblings, glad to be done and not a bad experience, maybe about an 8-8.5 not including the story and about a 7.5 including it, so still solid.
