In fairness to games out there that are sequels, and actually bring something new to the table, to call this game a sequel is to do those other games an injustice. Champions: Return to Arms is an expansion pack, if anything.
This is a very simple rpg with simple controllers and mechanics, still, it's one of my favorite games ever, mainly because of the local co-op that goes up to 4 players, but also because of the attention to details by the developers.
Every level has it's twist, you will get 4/5 new enemies every level, with unique bosses and secrets, I've played this game for years and there is still stuff I've not seen yet.
Most abilities are very original and creative, you can become a giant lizard, invoke skeletons, ressurrect any enemie in the game to help you, use hypnosis, teleport
Or just poop and fart on enemies.
Truly one o the hidden gems in ps2
There's a whole new story, working multiplayer, thousands of new items, new mini-games and sidequests, new classes to play, and the ability to play evil and good plot paths. On the other side of the coin is gameplay that most of us have seen before, following the same formula, and not taking any real chances in the process.
But there's hardly anything new here. The plot is paper-thin, and lacks a driving sense of humor or drama to keep you interested. The game-play is just as basic as it's ever been, and frankly, if you've played any of its predecessors, you've slashed and spellcast just this way a million times before.
my favorite game of all time lots of great memories wish they would make another one
will never happen snow blind studios merged with monolith productions and now make what seems to be only lord of the rings games which i'm not interested in
**** a new champions game could really be something amazing with all the new game engines and effects wide open worlds with awesome weapon drops
Absolutely love this game! The story is a little weak but the game play beats any hack and slash dungeon crawler ever made. It looks beautiful and moves quick enough that it's impossible to get bored and put down the controller I wish developers would make more games like this one. Plus there is nothing more fun than having a friend over or 3 for some excellent co-op action. A PC port or remake would be nice with controller support. This game made be buy a PS2 again just for this game.
Well well well... The critics didn't think this one was that great. This is one of those rare games where the critics were kind of wrong. This is actually a VERY good game when it comes to replay value, coop with a friend, and rpg hack and slash fun. It's honestly the king of those kinds of games but on a console. I put hundreds of hours into this game. Trying out all the different characters and working together with a buddy to take on some serious baddies. This game deserves 8's and 9's. The critics did give it that but they also gave it 6's and 7's. Not kool dude. This isn't destiny lol. That's a game that royally makes you mad in less than a days worth of play time. This game on the other hand makes you want to quit your job/school and just str8 up play all night with a buddy.
This was one of the better RPG games that you could customize your character and all. I played this game for quite awhile until like most online games, the cheats ruined it. It was still fun to play, even after so long as you watched who you played with. Another great game to go down in the era of PS2.
