    Hits the mark on a few cylinders, but its clumsy, redundant nature will put you to sleep, and for a videogame, which is by definition supposed to be "entertaining," that's not a good sign.
  2. Probably the least impressive game to arrive for the system to date.
  3. 67
    Unless you're a fan of the series, or desperately needing something to play until Square and company bestow some gaming goodness on us, this probably shouldn't be a permanent addition to your library.
  4. This is just an insult to the folks who shelled out 300 dollars for the PlayStation 2.
  5. While hardly as bad as its PSOne predecessor, this one seems content mired in utter mediocrity.
  6. A fun hack-and-slash dungeon romp, with a good dose of RPG thrown in.
  7. Sadly the effects you get on all these rarely impress and like the rest of the game they’re not much to look at.
  8. Scores higher than "The Bouncer" (despite looking worse than James Gandolfini at a nudist retreat) because it's lengthy and brain-dead fun that anyone can just pick and play right away.
  9. If you're really hungry for a brainless slasher game with a medieval theme, you might want to give this one a try. For the more discerning gamer, you should consider purchasing a 32-bit PlayStation game (such as "Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver") and wait until something better comes around.
  10. The animation is spotty at best, missing blocks of frames, while the monsters are chunky messes. The “blood” effects are pixilated eyesores too.
  11. It's not the most mind-blowing RPG ever, but it's good, clean, action-packed fun from start to finish.

    It´s a old fashioned fun action RPG. Good side is Lots of Wepaon, Magic, Monster & dungeons. Bad side : AI, sound and graphic. The story line is little more than average. Full Review »

    I like it. Advancement is interesting, the equipment is fun, and the magic system is neat. I think the graphics are ok, so far. The plot is a little predictable, but not terrible. Full Review »
