  1. Tries hard to be successful, but technical faults and the one major gameplay problem may dampen the experience for some. On the other hand, the game features some nice hack-n-slash action.
  2. Too often I found myself cursing at the unusually hard to manage team attacks and screaming as I started the whole field over for the 100th time.
  3. A game I expected to match or exceed "Baldur's Gate" doesn't even come close.
  4. And as all this PS2 majesty seeps in through your senses you’ll find your hand reaching to the back of the PS2 as your body makes an involuntary movement toward self-preservation. Click!
  5. Perhaps appropriately, the ending was neither flashy nor particularly rewarding, but the sense of accomplishment I got once I’d trudged through a good 15-20 or so hours of tiresome combat, eye-wateringly low framerates, and a nonexistent storyline was enough.

    To put it bluntly, the storytelling is a laughable farce. [July 2002, p.83]
  7. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine

    Missions bounce from being overly long and difficult to short and simple with no apparent logic. [August 2002, p.109]
  8. The action is solid, the presentation is average with flashes of brilliance, and the story surrounding it is alternately fascinating and flat.
