    If you have the attention span of, say, George W. Bush you're not going to much out of Ogre Battle 64. Now go away.
  2. Ogre Battle 64 offers a detailed branching story and great depth of customization, both executed brilliantly within the limitations of a 35-meg cartridge.
  3. An excruciating experience that will bear some of the most rewarding gameplay experiences ever crafted... Quest has once again pulled off another masterpiece in the flawless Ogre Battle Saga.
  4. Once you've got used to the way things work, thanks to the comprehensive training mode, you'll find the combat is far more satisfying than anything other more commercial RPGs have to offer.

    The graphics are gorgeous, the music stirring and the battles challenging.

    This story is addictive, the gameplay is exciting, and make no mistake about it: Ogre Battle 64 is a role-playing game of no small merit.
  7. "If you've been crawling across a desert for a couple years before finding a drink, you'll swear that even the smallest, dirtiest drop of puddle water is nothing less than manna from heaven." Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you a small, dirty drop of puddle water.

    This game deserves a 10 all the way! Only problem i have with it is how you don't fight the battles the whole way through. I wish the This game deserves a 10 all the way! Only problem i have with it is how you don't fight the battles the whole way through. I wish the units fought to the death (like in Training mode) But, aside from that i love the game. Great story, lots of cool character classes, lots of nice lil secrets and one of the best 64 games ever. (If you like this game, check out Final Fantasy Tactics, that is one of the best games for Play Station and is somewhat similar to Ogre Battle64) Expand

    This is one of the best games I've everplayed, and possibly one of the best games ever to come out for the N64. Even after playing This is one of the best games I've everplayed, and possibly one of the best games ever to come out for the N64.

    Extremely long, ridiculously in depth, and by far one of the most fulfilling turn-base role playing games (RPG) ever created. In the decadeExtremely long, ridiculously in depth, and by far one of the most fulfilling turn-base role playing games (RPG) ever created. In the decade of the quick sensation video games, this title is no longer appreciated or pursued. This story line takes time to develop and the game can be ruthless at times, since when characters are killed and the user waits to long to revive, then characters will become apart of the undead and no longer be as they were. Also, the combination between elemental attacks were, relatively, unknown for when this title came out. This is a complete classic in the sense that if you put this in your Nintendo 64 today and took some time to learn the mechanics and play the game, then you would still have an amazing experience. Everything from elemental attacks to strategic placing, the alternate endings (which no game that I can think of had at that time), the abilities to change classes and equip weapons to each unit, to the strategic formation, and did I mention the numerous amount of characters to use, including dragons, ghosts, undead, humans, etc... This game has it all, all it needs is sometime for the user to learn the system and how things work, as all good in depth games do. Expand
