  1. From the second you put this game in; you will not want to stop playing. It might consume your life until you finish it, or until you get stuck that you can't deal with the stress anymore.
  2. A melange of the action, adventure and RPG genres, Square has truly beaten all odds and produced an engaging, seamless epic unlike any other. Despite a few interface and complexity issues, Vagrant Story is a rare and nearly perfected game.

    Vagrant Story is that PlayStation title, the one all gamers have been waiting for, and one that's caused me to lose sleep, eat poorly (back to Chicken In A Bisket for me!) and shower on an irregular basis...all in the pursuit of gaming enlightenment.
  4. After all, it's still just the gunblade attack wearing a new dress. But what a pretty dress it is - curvy customizations, tight chain attacks, and sparkly exploration. Despite its somewhat limited action elements, VS presents a unique RPG with terrific storytelling.

    Despite all the disparate elements crammed into it, they all manage to complement each other and function as if Square has been secretly planning and polishing this gem for years now.
  6. Just about perfect for what it is: an old-fashioned, action RPG with loads of gameplay, a strong narrative and unparalleled presentation.

    Due to the initial difficulty and a slight repetitiveness on part of the gameplay, it will make you wonder what the fuss is about, but once you do get in and begin to understand the level of customisation the game allows, it'll have you hooked.

    The ultimate dungeon crawler. It might be a bit confusing and hard when you begin, but it will eventually grow on to you. Perfect story andThe ultimate dungeon crawler. It might be a bit confusing and hard when you begin, but it will eventually grow on to you. Perfect story and dialogue. A cool combat system. A soundtrack that reminds me of the classic RE. The save system and the high difficulty level early on are holding this epic game back. And maybe the dungeon crawler setting for some as well Vagrant Story is a must for every collector.
    9.0/10: EPIC!!!
