    Has just about everything you're looking for in an action/adventure game. [Oct 2002, p.84]
  2. Technically, the framerate takes a hit here and there in some of the more ornate levels. It's noticeable, but it doesn't disrupt the flow of action.

    A quality, enjoyable action-RPG...On the strength of DH's story alone, you have an RPG worth not only playing but owning. [Oct 2002, p.179]
  4. It had its share of problems (mainly technical), and the music left a lot to be desired, but the gameplay was very addictive.
  5. 70
    With more technical polish on the exterior, some better camera work, and a few more clever level designs, Dual would have been quite a thing...but even as it stands, you’ll still find plenty of gameplay value.
  6. Rather simplistic. I mean, there are a lot of things to do and multiple moves to learn and master, but I never felt in danger of losing the game.
  7. A nagging generic sameness that, despite a wonderful localization, robs the game of any joy in playing it.

    A enjoyable game with great combat, challenging bosses, and perhaps the most likable duo of main video game characters. Shame this wasA enjoyable game with great combat, challenging bosses, and perhaps the most likable duo of main video game characters. Shame this was shrugged off by the Kingdom Hearts release, this really is a unique game that needs to be experienced. Expand
