    If you have the attention span of, say, George W. Bush you're not going to much out of Ogre Battle 64. Now go away.
  2. Ogre Battle 64 offers a detailed branching story and great depth of customization, both executed brilliantly within the limitations of a 35-meg cartridge.
  3. An excruciating experience that will bear some of the most rewarding gameplay experiences ever crafted... Quest has once again pulled off another masterpiece in the flawless Ogre Battle Saga.
  4. Once you've got used to the way things work, thanks to the comprehensive training mode, you'll find the combat is far more satisfying than anything other more commercial RPGs have to offer.

    The graphics are gorgeous, the music stirring and the battles challenging.

    This story is addictive, the gameplay is exciting, and make no mistake about it: Ogre Battle 64 is a role-playing game of no small merit.
  7. "If you've been crawling across a desert for a couple years before finding a drink, you'll swear that even the smallest, dirtiest drop of puddle water is nothing less than manna from heaven." Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you a small, dirty drop of puddle water.

    I like this game a lot and it is fun if you try to play two player on it! If you haven't tried two player then you should try it cause I like this game a lot and it is fun if you try to play two player on it! If you haven't tried two player then you should try it cause it is simple. Just split the teams up to where one commands so much and the outher commands so much!! Expand

One of the most compelling stories put forth by this generation. Collapse

    Extremely long, ridiculously in depth, and by far one of the most fulfilling turn-base role playing games (RPG) ever created. In the decadeExtremely long, ridiculously in depth, and by far one of the most fulfilling turn-base role playing games (RPG) ever created. In the decade of the quick sensation video games, this title is no longer appreciated or pursued. This story line takes time to develop and the game can be ruthless at times, since when characters are killed and the user waits to long to revive, then characters will become apart of the undead and no longer be as they were. Also, the combination between elemental attacks were, relatively, unknown for when this title came out. This is a complete classic in the sense that if you put this in your Nintendo 64 today and took some time to learn the mechanics and play the game, then you would still have an amazing experience. Everything from elemental attacks to strategic placing, the alternate endings (which no game that I can think of had at that time), the abilities to change classes and equip weapons to each unit, to the strategic formation, and did I mention the numerous amount of characters to use, including dragons, ghosts, undead, humans, etc... This game has it all, all it needs is sometime for the user to learn the system and how things work, as all good in depth games do. Expand

    A rather overrated N64 title, considering how superb March of the Black Queen on the SNES was. I see kids who grew up on the Nintendo 64A rather overrated N64 title, considering how superb March of the Black Queen on the SNES was. I see kids who grew up on the Nintendo 64 praising it greatly, since it was probably their first turn-based strategy game. However there were many predecessors that just seemed to do it better. It is a quality game in its own rite, but if you played MOTBQ and a translated copy of Tactics Ogre for the SNES as well as FF Tactics and Tactics Ogre on the PS1, you will soon realize this is just above average turn-based strat sandwiched between two superior takes on the genre.
