  1. What I find most surprising about the game is the distinct lack of replay value.
  2. Ultimately, Wrath Unleashed’s biggest problem is that it sticks too firmly to concepts that were fresh twenty years ago, a mediocre strategy game and a mediocre fighting game wrapped up in one mediocre package.
  3. Colours throughout are horrifically gaudy and are totally at odds with the sombre nature of the game. Overall, there's little to commend about this insipid and limp title.
  4. Too simple for strategy fans and too complex for fighting fans. The occasionally interesting creature design and accompanying animation can't save this one from its cliched premise, uninteresting gameplay, and interminable load times. [Mar 2004, p.103]
  5. Sounds like a good idea in premise, then, except it's during these combat sections that the game emerges flatter than a blind hedgehog on a motorway. Limited fighting moves, weedy spells, monotonous pace - it could hardly be any less entertaining.

    This game rox-sox! It's Advanced Wars meets Soul Calibur!

    This game may not really be as bad as 1. But it certainly deserves a 1 when compared to one of my favorite PS games: The Unholy War. The following game elements are all much better in The Unholy War: * battlegournd variety * creature variety * gameplay Compared to The Unholy War, Wrath Unleashed is flat, flat, flat. None of the pieces fly - not meaningfully. Some of them "hover", which is, for the purposes of combat, not that different from walking. Their combat moves are also pretty much all the same. There is pretty much only one battle ground - in different colors. The Unholy War had wonderfully different battleground design. The graphics are also difficult to make out, which is frustrating. Perhaps they are better on an HDTV. But on my normal TV everything is so small. Very disappointing. Full Review »
