I like this game because it has good gameplay and things. Here is my review:
gameplay --> 8¾ it is a good adventure game graphichs --> 5 it is drawed good but it looks to fake talking --> 3 the only thing you see is the talk baloon and your characters don\'t say anything length --> 9¼ it has many levels (more than 200 I think) storyline --> 7½ it has a good combinated story
information --> you get in the game 6 characters: one with swords (your main character) one with slingshots (catgirl) one with hammers and axes (a fat hunter) one with magical rings (genie girl) one with lances (desert warrior) and one with guns (moonman).
The one with sword, the one with hammers and the one with lances are melee characters and the other three are ranged characters
there are 8 worlds and in 7 of them are dungeons and in 6 of them you have to assemble things.
Hope this review helped for your thoughts of the game
this game is really great. i love Link's new hat. What, it's not Link?
hmm, i thought this was the new Zelda, oh well, it plays just like a Zelda game, except you have to switch back and forth between Link, i mean Toan, and five other characters you collect along the way.
These allies include a catgirl, a dumb brute, a genie (babe), and some others.
The weapons break too often and putting the villages together to make the inhabitants happy kinda sucks, but it is in the end a lot of fun, remember to take lotsa weapon repairs, water, food, and stand-ins.
I was told that this game was the best Role Playing Game for the PS2 when I was at the local video game store in the mall. The employee was even kind enough to show me a video clip of the game, right in the store.
From what I saw and from what he told me, it looked like a good game. (especially for compared to every other RPG PS2 has to offer) So of course I bought the game, but little did I know the entire game was in dungeons!
The story line was horrid! Incase you didn't already know, a town is exploded by a big purple genie, but somehow a little fairy king manages to save all the peoples' houses in little orbs and scatter them across the world! (isn't that something?) So through-out the whole game you get to walk in dungeons, collecting stupid little orbs called atla.
In my own personal opinion this game was terrible. Don't get me wrong, I can credit the designers for a couple things; the attacking system makes the game more interesting (your weapons eventually break if you dont fix them), I like the characters (except the tubby boy with the hammer), and... well... thats about all they can get a pat on the back for.
The graphics are terrible and the story line is just pathetic. Afterall, what did we pay $300 for? Overall, the game is a waste of money and time, if you're thinking about buying it, I personally wouldn't.
I really enjoy playing this game. It has so many different and unique features to conside while playing. It is a wonderful mixture of a few game I've always liked to play. The fighting is easy, yet still a challage. The characters are great because they are all useful in different areas of the game. The weapons are sweet because you can use items to upgrade. But my favorite part is setting up the town the way you like it...and the characters!!!
This game is the best! The graphics are great, and the story line is pretty neat. If you are not into RPG games, then you might want to rent it first. Dark Cloud is a game that is like Zelda, but better, harder, and I think it is longer (it has 100 levals). The ratings for the game are some where in the 9's out of 10, I am sure. Another thing that is different about this game from Zelda is that you get allies. These allies help you when you can not complete a task that the main character can not complete. For example, Toan, the name of the main character can not jump across a cliff. Then you have to switch to some cat who is your ally to jump it. One thing that you should know before you buy this game- most of the game takes place in dungeons. The dungeons is where you fight the beasts. The game is rated T, for Teen, which means that there may be bad language, and a little fighting. Even if you think this is a great game, I recommand that you rent the game first and try it out.
