    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.

    This game deserves a 10 all the way! Only problem i have with it is how you don't fight the battles the whole way through. I wish the This game deserves a 10 all the way! Only problem i have with it is how you don't fight the battles the whole way through. I wish the units fought to the death (like in Training mode) But, aside from that i love the game. Great story, lots of cool character classes, lots of nice lil secrets and one of the best 64 games ever. (If you like this game, check out Final Fantasy Tactics, that is one of the best games for Play Station and is somewhat similar to Ogre Battle64) Expand

The story was compelling, the graphics were good forI don't hand out 10's very frequently but this game I feel is deserving in every way. The story was compelling, the graphics were good for their time and the replay value was high due to the Chaos Frame and branching decisions impacting who could be recruited. While this all adds to the game's appeal, there were two main factors that forced me to pick a 10 for this game:

    1. The game play is outstanding, from the RPG leveling and growth of your units, the customizable nature of the squads and the battles themselves all form a game that you enjoy all aspects of. You never feel like you're rushing through to get to the good stuff because it's all so good. 2. It is unique. Never before nor since have I found a game quite like Ogre Battle 64 - it's super Nintendo predecessor did not capture my attention in the same way nor has another game come out to replace it. This is a game that I still to this day dust off my N64 just to play once more through the story. Only a handful of games can same the same. If you've never played Ogre Battle 64 you owe it to yourself to give it a try!
