    When it comes to WW2 style (its set two decades after) Mech RPG turn based games, RIng of Red is the best (and only) there has ever been,

    With an intriguing story and unique combat mechanics at it's disposal, this PS2 strategy game will make you wonder why a sequel never came about.

    Over the course of about 30 hours of play, you'll build up a team of variious heavy light and melee mechs or AFW's and battle across Japan chasing down a traitor and slowly uncover a larger plot. The combat while appearing simply at first, becomes extremely complex when you have to worry about more then just loading and aiming. Infantry skills, positioning, distance, daylight and special shells all come into play by an hour in and it might take a few play throughs to master this unique system.

    It's a must play for mech, or strategy enthusiasts.

  1. Easily the best strategy game out on the PS2 at this time, not to mention one of the more inventive to ever grace a console.
  2. A solid title, featuring a believable and interesting storyline, plenty of missions to work through, and even good graphics. However, it can get very tedious at times, testing the patience of the most tolerant of gamers.
  3. One of the best action strategy games I have ever played.
