MichealF.7Fun, but not that fun. its also very hard.
TeddyB.7I've never played the original, but I absolutely love this game. great value for the price, great multi-player action, and the online isn't bad either. Some cons would be the touchy controls (when you press a direction it often moves two pixels in that direction), and the lack of online matchmaking.… Expand
KevinR.5Excellent game... Butchered...
It truly is a shame that they released this game in its current form. The sloppy controls kill what was once one of the best games out. For those who don't know, the game has 2 phases... one being shoot enemy with cannons, second being rebuild your castle with "Tetris-like" pieces. If you play solo you fight boats, multi-player games you will fight other players castles. This new version just totally ruins it. The original arcade version used a track-ball (which worked best) but... there were several home versions released. I had the Sega Genesis version as a kid, and the controls handled much, much better than this new PS3 version does. Such a shame... if they just took the control scheme from the Genesis version, hell..... take the whole game and just direct port it, add real on-line ladder rankings, and put a little effort into it, they would have a sleeper hit on the playstation arcade, and many young players would discover a great piece of gaming history. Its one of those games, that takes a minute to learn, and years to master.… Expand
H.V.T.2It gets 2 points just for being Rampart, one of the most beloved games from my childhood.
But the controls are just awful- to the point where it's nigh unplayable. Rampart is all about being able to execute precise moves under pressure, so when the controls prevent you from being able to accurately put down your castle pieces in a timely manner, that's more than a problem, it's a fatal flaw.
Hardcore Rampart fans will have to keep on looking for a worthy successor to the old SNES version, which remains the gold standard for Ramprt games.
I can't in good conscience reccomend this game to anyone.… Expand
