With its shoddy Sixaxis support, Sony Online's version of Rampart doesn't do much for the game's memory. Even with online versus play, Leaderboards, and support for resolutions all the way up to 1080p, the overall lack of control seals this classic's fate.
While Gamestyle enjoyed the action far more than Joust or more than we actually expected originally, next time someone argues that games were better all those years ago, direct them towards Rampart and see that argument crumble far more quickly than the castle walls.
It was an interesting mix of action back in its day, and it's still interesting today. Unfortunately, even the three-player online play can't make up for the PlayStation 3 version's terrible, touchy control.
