Plays like Shadow of Omega but I feel the gameplay is more balanced/easier due to more forgiving enemies and Arcane Characters. Only plays 4 without base though.

English: Add more if you play game with "Shadow of Omega" with the use of arcane characters and many more cards. The illustrations are still precious, you can play without "Shadow of Omega".

Español: Añade más juego si lo unes a "Sombra de Omega" junto con el uso de personajes Arcanos y muchas más cartas. Las ilustraciones siguen siendo preciosas, se puede jugar sin "Sombra de Omega".

Excellent game. At its best when played with 3-5 players. Even better when combined with one or both expansions. Arcane characters really add to gameplay. Add a couple of optional rules (exploding dice!) and no fight can be taken for granted.

The expansion added more of the same as the base set which adds to replayability but fails to enhance the game experience.

The best RPG adventure card game system.

Beyond Good and Evil is the first expansion of the Anima card game and the title of the game actually comes from Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche's book. So you can see the game designer's ambition of creating the world and the games revolving around this fantasy world setting. The gameplay is competitive on one level and cooperative on another - yes, very "zen". The artwork and the character concepts worth the price alone. This expansion adds new class of characters to the game and the base game is still intact. You expand your team by recruitment, visit the locations and get to explore them, defeat the monsters and get your reward! It's that simple and collect all RPG elements nicely so, and in card game format! No other card game can beat it. A highly and hearty recommended card adventure game from a wargamer like me. It is a very richly detailed card game in which many fascinating tales to tell.

I like this game. It's a little long, and it sucks to lose your hard-fought-for characters to a single card or die roll, but overall, like its predecessor, it is entertaining.

You need to combine both games Anima: Shadow of Omega and this. Otherwise you won't have enough cards to play properly.

An expansion for Anima: the Shadow of Omega as well as a stand-alone game on its own right. Because of their similarity, the same rating for the first Anima card game applies here too.

This game has serious balancing issue. Players who fall behind will rarely have the chance to catch up again, making those said players feeling the urge to end the game faster thus creating a "Munchkin" type of play.

Essentially the same as Anima: Shadow of Omega and Twilight of the Gods. I can't remember if they add much of anything to the base game but they are fun...can either be played alone or added into the other decks for more re-playability.

It was one of the first games I bought when I got into the hobby and I found it very interesting, refreshing and fun. As soon as I played more games and tried different mechanincs it started to feel a bit dull compare to other games. The randomness might also make your objective imposible or very hard to achieve.

This game is best described as Final Fantasy The Card Game. The artwork is great. As a stand alone game it could definitely use more cards. You will cycle through them more than once during a game. You do however have the option to add the cards from the two other games in the series (I play this combined with both Anima: Shadow of Omega and Anima: The Twilight of the Gods). The game is probably best with four players, but I think it would take too long to finish for me to enjoy it. I will keep the game in my collection to play as a two player game. The linen cardstock is great. Plays are logged under Anima: Shadow of Omega.

Has a broken card in 2-player (can kill off a entire party). Thus the lower rating. Since we only play this 2 player, I'll have to house rule to remove the card from the game.

Essentially the same as Shadow of Omega with the minor improvements being balanced against inferior art.

According to the box the game plays 2-5, however, this is not possible with the components provided.

The new encounters are also much more punishing and random. Very disappointing.

Light party gathering, dungeon-crawling, adventuring, rpg ...thing. It has a lot of text to read, and some of the monsters are a little unbalanced. The art ranges from very good to cheesey to a little embarrassing to play in mixed company. If you are an anime fan and are looking for light fun, this might scratch that itch.

OMFG. Most disappointing purchase ever.

This is a terrible game. A TERRIBLE GAME. Do NOT attempt to play this game stand-alone. If there is ANY way that this thing works, it's in combination with the original box, because the maths in this thing are broken.

It's basically rolling two dice for a 1 in 6 chance of winning combat for the first 20 turns or so, until someone gets lucky and actually beats something, at which point they get marginally better.

This game can go on like this for HOURS.... a complete waste of time.

Pity. Because the art is magnificent and the concept was great.

Bah.

The art is AMAZING and that's what saves it from me rating it a 1. It's barely a game. You throw a d6 and hope for the best while everyone slows each other down and the game drags on. Shadow of Omega tried to fix the draggy endgame but it's not enough. The cards drip with theme but the mechanics of the game kill any sense of immersion into the wonderful anime universe they tried to create.
