Game description: Drakengard 2 is the sequel to the original Drakengard, which was brought to America by Square Enix. This addition to the series continues the action-focused role-playing gameplay as you continue to explore and protect the red dragons. The game combines 3D flying and shooting aspects, as well as ground combat. Drakengard 2 adds new features, such as the ability to switch among characters and to use magic.
The game is the second entry in the Drakengard series and a direct sequel to the original Drakengard: the story revolves around Nowe, a boy raised by the dragon Legna, fighting against a tyrannical faction of Knights, encountering characters from the previous game and becoming entangled in the fate of the world.

If you use D3D9/10/11 Hardware, with 2x Native Res or higher, black vertical lines may appear. To resolve this, set a custom resolution instead (A maximum of 1240x1240 pixels). Oniryujin

1.5.0-2388 GSdx EE/VU Clamp modes: Extra+Preserve Sign/Normal. 60fps all the way thru using 3x native res on the 560ti. Higher res would slow down when special effects are happening. Needs EE clamping set to "Extra+Preserve Sign" or "Full" for some characters and breakable objects to show correct colors. Game is too blurry even at the highest resolutions.

Undub version. Runs great up to 3x Native Res, but at 4x and above the bloom starts acting up. Skipdraw has no effect. Jicks
