I was watching a BoF2 speedrun earlier today and god damn, the game is really a fantastical journey

What's the best way to play it now? Original, or the translation patch that some people hate?

Re-translation is the only way to play this game. Original translation is incomprehensible.
>>
>>5203413
what about the criticisms of the retranslation?
>>
>>5203487
Biggest one seem to be extending the item/skill list characters and making it twice as long to scroll through. Crono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6 did the same thing you just didn't notice it because you've never played the Japanese original.

I mean the original is unreadable, anon. Equip fishing lod/bait and swapped dialog boxes' choices. Re-translation is nowhere near as bad as that fanfiction stereotype. And it's the best we as fans got because Capcom has laid a veiny dick on that. But the end choice is, of course, yours.

Goddamn, I want to dump the shit out of my folder.

I mean the original is bland as fuck as the original Japanese script literal translations go, has fuckton of typos and still western references in characters' names and in credits. Characters' names in the re-translation are failthful: Katt, I mean no Japanese developer would call her by a western name, is Lin (Pu) which in the original Japanese script is Rinpoo, a transcription.
>>
>>5203487
They're generally criticisms of the translation in general, not in comparison to the old translation.
The old translation is so bad you could run the original script through Google Translate and get a better translation.

>a fucking Garr has more fanart than her
You look hella upset, buddy.

>>5206041
Katt is deservedly popular, because she's still remembered while being stuck in the one sole old-ass game which most of the current BoF fans haven't even played at its peak (they started with PS1 games), while Ninas were recycled every time and were kinda forced as the series' meme staple, although Ninas are generic party members in every game they are. Meanwhile Momo is stuck in the most bandwagoned BoF game which many of fans grew up with and still not popular enough. Katt clearly has the superior design.

Don't let the fact that Katt is portrayed carefree in most of her fanart distract you from the other fact she can do other expressions easily. Same with her combat abilities. Charm, taunt, magic, being a pole fighter, apparently can also wield pole-arms, all define a very interesting character. Her not being portrayed to her full capabilities in the 1994 game with limitations, doesn't mean it can't be done at all. She's still a lovable character in the game, especially in the re-translation.

Katt is best girl, but I legit hated all the other characters in BOF 2, like I couldn’t give two shits about them at all, fat frog, Rand, Spar, Bo, they all suck.

BOF 1 had very simple 1 dimensional characters, but I didn’t hate them like I did the BOF2 cast

But yes Katt never left my party and was easily best girl.

>use katt in battle
>she sucks
I get she's supposed to be a glass cannon, but by the end of the game, the enemies start hitting like trucks and she's never going to last more than a few turns. I can use Bow, Rand, and even Bleu, who are all more durable and can deal just as good damage.
Also, what the fuck is the point of Dare? All it does is get her killed even quicker.
>>
>>5212367
I mean she's not brain dead retard friendly, but she's pretty balanced nevertheless and is very good in conjunction with other characters who will heal and buff her. She's fastest out of all and Dare is godly when u at witch and there're flies, u equip charm to Katt and taunt, instead of all party getting poisoned, only 1 PC will.
>>
>>
>>5212367
She's too fragile to be in the front row but doesn't have enough AP to be in the back row.
The best way to play her is to get that one guy in township that boosts AP permanently and then put her into her shaman form favoring speed. This will also give her enough AP to actually cast her spells, and you'd better have the rest of the party be fast too because you'll need to kill everything before it can knock her out of her super form.
Also Dare just sucks, most of the unique abilities suck.

>make Katt a caster
This is the most stupid thing I've ever heard.

Katt doesn't die in the front row if you know what you are doing and/or gave her best equipment. Saying she does is straight up lying. 3rd is the best position for her. Also most people don't even realize you can switch formations during battle. When on low HP - from scramble (1-2-Katt front, 4 back) to defense (1 front, 2-Katt-4 back) and vice versa when need attack power. Front - attack power, back - defensive power.

This tactic is actually so effective it's kind of irritating, the battle system in BoF2 really isn't very well balanced at all.

honestly just use a guide to make sure you get all the dragons (not actually that important, but generally helpful), then fire through the storyline as fast as possible without worrying too much about everything else if you want to find out if it has anything to offer you. 90% of the game is right in the meaty center of it on the main linear plot-line.

fair warning though if you end up caring about any of the characters at all this game WILL hurt you but still leave you with a shred of both hope and regret which is the cruelest gift of all
