  1. The hidden ace among the collectible card games on the PS2.
  2. A sleeper hit because of the simplicity of the gameplay and the intricacy of the strategy.
  3. Culdcept has exceeded my expectations in nearly every way. The game is deep, addicting, and an absolute joy to play.
  4. Prepare to waste your month(s) away, or just rent this beast and enjoy the unintentionally hilarious plot and general presentation.
  5. More "Monopoly" than "Magic: The Gathering," you may want to rent it first to see if it suits your style.
  6. 70
    Sure, the chatter between characters is pretty hokey at times - and is that old guy a walking stick with a head? - but that doesn't overshadow that Culdcept is an interesting and unique game idea. It's worth a look to see if it will offer you a break from the routine.
  7. The game is insanely addictive, but it will only truly appeal to those with a modicum of patience.

    They should've just called this game Crackcept, it's nearly too addictive to be believed. The battles are beyond epic, just when They should've just called this game Crackcept, it's nearly too addictive to be believed. The battles are beyond epic, just when you think you're dominating, a bad roll of the dice forces you to rethink your strategy to regain what you lost. The fact that you can create up to ten different books of 50 cards each means that you can play each battle exactly as you'd like, but also means that no two battles will ever be even remotely alike (or predictable). This game's stupefying level of depth and replayability amount to a sleeper classic that is second to none. Needless to say, I am almost giddy that Culdcept Saga is coming very soon to the Xbox 360. Joy! Expand

I am playing 2 characters at the same time to try to get all the cards (480 of them!) It really is a perfect marriage between Monopoly and Magic the Gathering by taking the good parts and combining them. Instead of buying a space on the board, you cast a creature onto it and then either leave it only or pay to upgrade it so if the creature is not defeated by an opponent (or not challenged at all) they will pay higher magic points to land on it. You play with a 50 card deck that will start over if you run out. Creatures have innate abilities and can be boosted with weapons, armor, scrolls and even other creatures. For those concerned about time, you can save in the middle of a game and come back to it at any time. A+ game that I would recommend to anyone. Expand

Now, even though I have My girlfriend and I got this because we like Magic: The Gathering and the graphics on the box seemed very appealing. Now, even though I have a library of about 70 PS2 games, this is the one we always end up playing. It fits our every mood, is extremely fun single player and multiplayer, the atmosphere and art are fantastic, and the card collecting aspect is extremely well implemented and addictive. This game just works exactly like you want it too, and it's just awesome. Absolutely one of my favorite games on the system. I wish I had something like it for one of my portables... At only 10 bucks or so used and 20 bucks new, there is no excuse not to pick it up if you are even remotely interested in the concept. Expand

This is a must have for tactics and strategy enthusiasts. It may look like kids stuff at first glance, but do not be deceived. The single player game is really challenging and enjoyable, but the multiplayer game will completely dominate your weekends and holiday vacation time. I really can?t believe how much fun this game is. I can?t wait to get home and play this ugly freakish little import. Expand
