5-0 out of 5 stars Never got to the first and I don't care
I never played the original and don't really want to. This game was such a treasure to find with it's phenomonal music and graphics, engrossing gameplay, twisted plot, and the variety of characters possible to play. I have lost a lot of sleep over this game and I'm not even half way done.
3-0 out of 5 stars Solid, but contains the pitfalls of most tri-ace games...
My experience with developer tri-ace's games dates back to the original Playstation era with Star Ocean:The 2nd Story. Like most gamers on this side of the world, this was probably the one of the first tri-ace titles that had and created enough of a buzz to form a niche of fans. The other game, which is credited with a simular yet even bigger buzz, was the original Valkyrie Profile.
4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Follow Up to a Fantastic Game
Valkyrie Profile is a cult classic.No matter how you look at it.It was one of those games you either loved or hated.Obviously enough people loved it enough for Square-Enix to re-release the original on the PSP and make a second one on the Playstation 2.The end result is a great game that should satisfy fans of the original.

1-0 out of 5 stars So Stupid!
Now, before you say anything, I have played this game and beaten it in the week provided by blockbuster(grudgingly playing it though)and now for the unbaiased opinion. I think that this game is so completely stupid. It and the sequel are retarded but again its my opinion.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Games Ever
I unlike a lot of other people did not buy this game when it first came out.My initial thought was what was Squar thinking.I was thinking this could be nothing more than a childs game.It wasnt until I talked to a number of other people, right before KH2 came out did i finaly listen to all those people and spend the $20 to get the game, (as was the price of the game by then,) and low and behold, by the time I finished watching just the opening scene I was hooked.I played that game for what seemed like hours on in, (it was really only a very long weekend.) But that game became so addicting I immediatly went out and bought the second one the day it came out.The story line was on par with that of Final Fantasy X, and Final Fantasy VII, my two favorit games in the world. I would recomend this game to anyone with even the slightes bit of imagination.If you can even dare to dream you will instantly love this game as I did.It was well worth the price, and my only regret is that i did not buy it sooner.

4-0 out of 5 stars Toss up
Fighting- the combat isn't as in depth as traditional gamers would expect since combat consists of dodging striking and magic. Still you may find yourself sweating when a fight gets really close.

IT IS A REALLY REALLY COOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLL GAME.Never trust Jedi mom!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome game... no other way to put it.
Kingdom Hearts II is the long-awaited sequel to the 2002 Disney/Square collaboration Kingdom Hearts. Picking up the story where the former game--and the interim Game Boy Advance release, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories--left off, Kingdom Hearts II guides you through a series of Disney-themed worlds as you encounter a cast of characters that reads straight off the credits of some of the most popular Square games and Disney movies. Though the formula in KHII is quite familiar, much of the gameplay has changed, and it's safe to say that it's been for the better. Fans of the original game and of Disney/Square properties in general will fall in love with this game quite easily, though a few problems with the basic gameplay prevent Kingdom Hearts II from being whole-heartedly recommendable to everyone else.

This isn't your typical review, I haven't played the game but I have something to say. After reading all the reviews I have come to a conclusion-Make your own decision. This obviosly a hit or miss game play wise. Some people love it some people hate it, the point, you should rent it then make a decision or play it at a friends house, don't buy things based on reviews alone, strangers don't know what you like. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW
I loved Xenogears and when it was known that they were going to bring out xenosaga I was so looking forward to it. Well 1 didn't disapoint which led to 2.!! Then there was 2, well talk about a letdown. Then the talk of 3 started. At first I was unsure if I wanted to lay down any more money and be disapointed yet again... But WOW am I glad I did. It was a beauty to watch and play. Many of the answers from games 1 and 2 can be found it breath taking cut scenes. Im not going to spoil things for you but just to say WOW isnt enough to discribe the CGI's and twist and turns. I just hope you enjoy this game as much as I have.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most beautiful game on the market.
The game has a LOT of plot development and cutscenes.If you are into it then that's great.I find I scan for the gist and then move on to the next dialogue.That being said, all of the backgrounds are simply the best ever put on screen.I find myself actually commenting aloud to myself how beautiful the game is.The action is good and the plot does suck you in.Nothing novel in the battle system, while the plot managed to surprise me after playing both of it's predecessors.Completely worth your while.

4-0 out of 5 stars With a story as detailed and absorbing as Xenosaga III's, it's nearly impossible to not be hooked.
Xenosaga Episode I remains a type of paragon for a story and character driven RPG.There was so much to tell in the game that players looking to sink their teeth into a 40 or so hour cinematic RPG wouldn't need to look any further, and would also be very satisfied.Episode II was a bit shorter and not quite as good as the first installment.However, Xenosaga III is as good as an RPG can get.I love to watch films with solid plots and memorable, meaningful characters. It is a pleasure to experience a video game that can achieve that kind of involvement through a long period of 40+ hours.Episode III, throughout its duration, constantly engrosses the player with the many plot developments, flashbacks, and insights into the many characters.Every primary characater is respected with deep explorations into their own motives and agendas.Everything about the game is meticulously crafted.Every bit of plot and dialogue builds upon itself from the intro all the way to the conculsion, and still there is room for much more to be pondered.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not great.. not horrible.. just eh..
I waited a long time to buy this game because my brother told me not to waste my money.I'm glad I listened to him.This game was pretty much a bad graphic movie.I would say that the game is 60% short little movies with bad graphics, 10% beautiful graphic movies, and 30% actual game play.I was so frustrated when all I wanted to do was level up, or explore and instead I had to sit there and watch a dumb movie.The main character, Tidus, was so unrealistic as a hero and Yuna, the main female character, said "yes" as her only dialogue about 100 times! Oh my god, they would have a whole movie scene just to have her say yes!!Also, there were long pauses in between speeches... it was really annoying.The game itself was ok.By the end, the bad guy was really easy... i thought he would be more of a challenge.All in all, this game is only average.The story line could have been more thought out, and instead of a twist, it was more like a confusing reality.But an even worse game is FF X-2... Stay away from that one at all cost!The one thing I really loved about this game was the sphere system for gaining skills and abilities.I wish that could be the main way from now on. Looks like FF VII is still my fav FF game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Graphics And Deep Gameplay
There is so much to see and discover in this game. It took me over 70 hours just to complete the walkthrough and I am still working on capturing all the monsters for the Monster Arena. Someone who wanted to complete all side quests, find all special items, etc. could easily spend more than 100 hours on this game and never get bored -just incredibly deep gameplay. The graphics are also outstanding, among the best I have seen in a video game. It took me awhile to get used to the Sphere Grid used to increase your characters' stats. At first I didn't find it as satisfying as the typical method of "leveling up". But eventually I began to enjoy it and it's now one of my favorite aspects of the game. The only thing I found tiresome was how long the cutscenes were. The storyline itself was quite good. But I wish it was told with shorter cutscenes or at least gave players the option to skip through the cutscenes. Still this is a minor complaint to an otherwise excellent game. Definitely worth buying!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pure Magic!
All I have to say is that squaresoft out did themselves with X. It truly is a masterpiece and a feast for the eyes. I was lost in it's story, creativity, music, and charcters. Beautiful! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun and... FREE (no monthly cost that is :P)
Last year's game that combined most of the best aspects of online role-playing (without any monthly fees attached), action role-playing games, and competitive gaming in general is back in a similarly huge and interestingly complex follow-up. While Guild Wars Factions is inherently similar to its predecessor, and saddled with some of the same relatively minor shortcomings, it still delivers a deep, addictive, and satisfying experience on many levels. The game is ultimately best suited for social, competitive players (like fans of the original), but it effectively weaves together solo, cooperative, and competitive content in a way that's undeniably impressive.
4-0 out of 5 stars Factions is great -- and a good replacement for WoW
Here's the thing. I enjoy a game I can play solo--with occasional (emphasis on OCCASIONAL!) group questing and activities.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent game!
I won't go into a lot of detail because most have described the game enough.But just wanted to say this is an excellent game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, wonderful game for a very low price
Dragon Warrior VIII for the PS2 is a wonderful game. It's Japanese, so it's done in a cutesy anime style, which might put some people off.(Personally, I found it a refreshing change.)

4-0 out of 5 stars Have You Hugged a Prinny Today?
Admittedly, I haven't played a lot of strategy RPGs. I attempted to play Final Fantasy Tactics, generally considered to be a classic of the genre, at one point, but I found it really dry and I had serious problems with a class system that seems to really unbalance the game by making it too easy. I've never really had much motivation to seek out other examples of SRPG genre because there is Nippon-Ichi's Disgaea series, as unique as it is fun. And long-lasting too. You can spend several hundred hours playing through Disgaea: Hour of Darkness and Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories to beat all the bonus content beyond the main campaign.
5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I bought Disgaea when it first came out and thought it was great.Fun, funny, and with many long hours of game play.When 2 came out, I was excited.It didnt let me down.
3-0 out of 5 stars Great game -- but do not expect another Hour of Darkness.
That might be a little misleading -- the battle mechanics are almost exactly the same as those in the first game (heck, as in most of Nippon Ichi's games, though this series, I think, is the best of the lot).That part of the game absolutely delivers:

2-0 out of 5 stars Different From FFX
Let me begin by saying that this game is very different from FFX.Do not expect an epic story here.And the battle system is drastically different.All three of the main characters are females.The story takes place in Spira.Yuna, Rikky, and a new character, Paine are Sphere Hunters.They travel all over the continenct searching for these artifacts.The story is very lightweight and definitely not engaging.However, the game is not a bad RPG.If you simply just want to pass the time and play an RPG, then this game will do.Just do not expect it to be anywhere near as good as FFX. In my view, there are many other superior RPGs out there that should be first on your list.

2-0 out of 5 stars WHAT is all the rave about???
I am a die-hard fan of Kingdom Hearts, and I've heard the fantastic reviews for Final Fantasy.So, I decided to try it out.I rented it at the video store, and boy, what a waste of time!
1-0 out of 5 stars Dosen't live up to the series expectiations
If you've come to this game because you're a big fan already of final fantasy, loved final Fantasy X, or are just looking for a fun game to play, you've come to the wrong game.As an avid final fantasy fan I immediatly jumped on this game as soon as it came out, but was grossly dissapointed. The characters they reused from the first game were perverted in the sense that they were grossly changed (ex. costumes were made emensly slutty) and the story plot was WEAK.In addition to this, I was able to beat the game in less than a month! And by only holding down the x button during all battles none the lesss! It dosen't matter why you want to play this game, be it stroy pot, reputation, or battle system, this game is not something you want to have seen on your game shelf. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing
This second part of Xenosaga compares very badly to the stellar first part, regardless of what anyone says.I no longer wanted to play this game after only 30 minutes.
3-0 out of 5 stars Predictable
Alot of reviews have been given for this game as "REALLY BAD." I'm one of those people who lets things slide. I'm a big RPG gamer. If you're just looking for fighting in a game. Stay away from this one. This needs alot of role playing consciousness. It has a FANTASTIC storyline (surperior to alot of other RPGs), but the game should have been a movie if you ask me. This game goes back to the past, alot of flashing back and forth and alot of surprises. On "The Trio" as I would say. Jr. Albedo and Gaignun. Don't worry about other characters. They're not as important here. But don't let that get you down.
4-0 out of 5 stars Episode II: What Are You, a Moron?
One of the most common complaints is that Xenosaga Ep. II's battle system is annoying and ponderous because "even in 'regular' battles, it forces you to spend many turns Stocking just so that you can do decent damage to enemies." This is actually a form of codespeak. What these people are really saying is "I'm not very bright, and even after several hours of playing Ep. II, I somehow never realized how to use the battle system efficiently."

3-0 out of 5 stars Has Potential
This game has a lot of potential but badly suffers from cut scene overload. The story is very interesting and unfolds very well. The battle system is fine as are the controls. The playing characters keep changing and you don't have control over who you will play in each phase of the game. But that is not so bad as it keeps it interesting. There is a unique feature that allows you to go back to places you have already been and search them for missed treasure. The one nearly fatal problem is the cut scenes. I hit one that was so long that I got to: do some laundry, clean the kitchen, change the kitty litter, and it was still going!! So I went and did the dishes! At least it had the benefit of motivating me to do a lot of house work, so maybe it is a good thing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Game, But I Just Didn't Enjoy It
There is nothing majorly wrong with this game.The plot is well-developed, the characters are customizable, and the battles are strategic.This is probably primarily subjective, but I just didn't enjoy this game.It's not because there were too many movies--it's because I didn't like the movie.I also didn't like the characters or the villains or for that matter the aesthetics.There were some minor but annoying flaws in the game which further contributed to my displeasure.Which button to press was often counterintuitive, and so I often found myself pressing the wrong button.Also, the game badly needs a journal and/or a destination guide so you know where to go--I once spent one hour doing nothing other than walking around a space ship trying to figure out where to go.

5-0 out of 5 stars Unabashedly biased about this game.
First off, as many people have said, the game is wonderful as a movie--less so as a game itself. I am not a habitual player of RPGs for the sake of their gameplay, however--I stray toward puzzle-solving and instant-action games along the lines of the Ecco the Dolphin and Metroid series, respectively--but I appreciate the intricate storytelling the genre allows for.

4-0 out of 5 stars BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE MY OPINION
This game is better than the first champions to me because it has two more characters, and it has all these new weapons, armor, items, and areas to go to. I think this game is also a little like the first one because despite what I put above, this game has the same feel to it and its pretty much the same thing just with different details in the game.But I still recommend this game to anyone looking for a good solid rpg experience.

3-0 out of 5 stars Champions of Norrath competes with itself
If you've played any of the Baldur's Gate series (I've beaten them all) or the previous installment of the EverQuest game for PS2, then you're now familiar with Snowblind Studios' game engine. So familiar, in fact, that you probably can't tell you're playing a different game.
4-0 out of 5 stars cool
This Game is Pretty awesome you can upgrade your character's armor, weapon and powers.I haven't played the first game of the series but this one is good.also there are two more species of creatures to be ( Vah Shir Berserker and Some kind of Shaman) all in all its a good game. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best game I've played in a long time!
This game (as said in the title) is one of the best I have played in awhile! I have played it and beat it SIX (6) times! The graphics were great and the gameplay was great. There's two sides to pick from both with different story lines and endings. Now I will say the ending on one side is some-what confuseing at first but I figured it out the second time around.
2-0 out of 5 stars Felt like I was wasting my time
I tried playing this game twice, and both times I got to a point where it was more of a chore than a fun experience.
5-0 out of 5 stars Jack kicks into action!
This game is really fun. It has an amazing and funny storyline. They had very good graphics and funny clips. This game made me laugh out loud plenty of times. It lasts longer than some games I've played where you finish the game in a couple of days and theres no challenge. I really like longer games with a challenge. You can follow people around on there daily schedules and make friends with them. One fun thing about this game is that you can start a fight with anyone if you kick them twice. And when you kick objects you can sometimes get items. I really can't understand how anyone could not like this game. I would rather play this game than play some bloody, gory ,and violent videogame with no story line whatsoever. Its a classic for me, and I really would like to see a sequel. It gets better and better toward the end! Good game three thumbs up! ^-^

5-0 out of 5 stars Final Fantasy Rocks
This add-on to the original is needed to complete several quests, and adds new adventures.You already know how much fun the original is, this adds new jobs, as well as new items, and it is needed to get your ticket to Khazam.

4-0 out of 5 stars A solid expansion, although a bit disappointing...
Chains of Promathia is a fairly solid expansion released by Square Enix for their Final Fantasy XI MMORPG. With this second major expansion (Rise of Zilart being the first expansion) for the series, SE (Square Enix) attempted to introduce several new missions and quests that may be attempted by low/mid-level players, increasing content and play for the more "casual" players. Note: There are no new job classes nor did the level cap change with this expansion (Currently at 75)
5-0 out of 5 stars Final Fantasy XI ROCKS!
This just has to be one of the best online games ever created and the best game in the Final Fantasy series. If you like RPG game then ckeck this game out with great graphic and game play is awsome. I'm a big fan of this series and I can see elven has gone a long way. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars It could have been better...
This game is a great way to get people interested in the MMORPG EverQuest, but I do feel that it tends to be too repetitive.
5-0 out of 5 stars Soon we will be the CHAMPIONS
The game is GREAT!!Played it with my sister and we had a blast.The characters' emotions in the voices in the storyline were excellent and very believable.Graphics were pretty good.Just wish we had 2 other friends to play it with.That would be the bomb!

4-0 out of 5 stars a comfortable, familiar pattern
Snowblind, the developer behind the multi-console hit Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, released Champions of Norrath in 2004 exclusively for the PlayStation 2. Bearing a marked resemblance to Dark Alliance, this one is also a console adaptation of Blizzard's successful hack `n slash RPG Diablo formula. The player or players--up to four simultaneously in multiplayer offline mode--create their own unique heroes to venture forth from the city of Faydwer and out into the wilds of Norrath in an attempt to save the land from a gathering army of dark, powerful forces. The setting is hundreds of years before the Everquest fantasy game world known to players of that PC title, although familiarity with it is not a prerequisite for this game. A demon named Innoruuk is wreaking havoc in Norrath and to stopping it will require much in the way of combating goblins, orcs, vampires, giant ants, freakish spiders, frogmen, skeletal zombie pirates, whatever else...and ultimately Innoruuk himself. Cinematics and in-game spoken dialogues are all duly notable and do a fair job of winding the tale along, yet the story element doesn't come off as being very strong in the end. Rather, it seems merely an interlude to take a breath between long bouts of hacking and slashing at the endless minions of evil cascading down at you. Which, as it turns out, is just fine for this type of game.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sets the bar for bare minimum
I had heard some good things about Star Ocean and was eager to try it out. Unfortunately, this proved to be a costly mistake that drained hours of my life which could've been better suited playing a "good" game.
2-0 out of 5 stars FANBOYS, SILENCE!
I'm going to take a different approach to reviewing for a change, and make a checklist for Star Ocean 3 here. Why? Because I've never seen a more cliched rpg since Final Fantasy 7, and it pains me to know that I've played it, not having any way of removing it from memory any time soon.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money
Now don't get me wrong, I love dotHack. I'm one of those kids who sits around in the bookstore reading the manga. So I thought even if the game wasn't so good, I could deal with it. Right? Uh. No.
4-0 out of 5 stars A totally unique RPG experience
This game does things in an action RPG that have never been done before, while maintaining the core.The character development is great, the soundtrack is great, the value is unprecedented because of the inclusion of a DVD movie.You should absolutely add this game to your collection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great story! Decent gameplay
The story and way they portay the elements of the atmosphere and a made-up MMORPG world are very nice. It's very easy to get hooked on the story and concept with all the mysteries in place, and very colorful characters

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Game, but drones on.....
I will have to say when I first started playing this game, I was amazed and addicted.It was creative and added features that I've never seen in any of the games I had played before.However, there is one HUGE downfall, the fighting and dungeons go on and on and on, they are not challenge, nor new, they just basically put "bad guys" in the same scenery and background countless times.It will get old very fast.I found myself playing the "drone on dungeons" just to get to some of the extra features.Aside from the dungeons, there is only one other thing I found that took away from the game...and that was the story line.The story makes little sense at times, altough the idea had so much potential near the being, it just gets shady and boring after you progess thoughout the game.
5-0 out of 5 stars Well rounded action-RPG
Dark Cloud 2 will get you ready for Kingdom Hearts!The game mechanics and quality are very similar.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite games.
I love this game so much.I still have not beat it and I bought it as soon as it came out lol.I like to play games slow plus I was in a coma for 2 months and recovered over the next year.Anyway this is an amazing game.What you must do is build cities up to 100%.You collect the materials from battles or from just going out and buying them.Then you use them to build your towns anyway you want.You can add anything, even if it is not needed.You will get a good feeling when you see your town at 100%.Then you can go into the future and walk through the town and see how it has grown or you can go into the past and see it.The graphics are great and have for a long time been my favorite RPG graphics.The controls are perfect.You can swing your wrench with no trouble at all.Also speaking of your weapon you can upgrade it.It will tell you when you have enough stats to upgrade the weapon.Another cool thing is you have a camera.You can take pictures of stuff and save the pics.Sometimes the puictures will give you an idea to build something.Be it a weapon or even a fish tank to keep you fish in.Yes there are fish and you have to feed them and bread the.It is very fun to get a hook and bait and go fishing in the little lakes and rivers in the game.The last thing I will tell you about is the ridepod.This is something that you ride around in.You can build it up over time and make it look totally diffrent.Also you can add new weapons and make it either fly or ride on weels.What it all comes down to is Dark Cloud 2 is an amazing amazing game.I never ehar that much about it which is crazy because it deserves all tyhe attention.Give it a try won't ya?If you played Dark Cloud and hated it do not worry this is alot diffrent but still the same.If that makes any sense. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Lmao just about the whole way through.
Right from the beginning this game is filled with wacky, crazy, just complete out of this world humor. As for that are like omg the gay biker merchant just hit on my 16 your old (who isn't really 16 btw.. but you'll find that out later if you actually play it long enough :P ) isn't funny then maybe you need to lighten up and go out and get a sense of humor. This game has everything from crazy super hero ninjas, talking drunken master cats, sushi gone wild, transforming vampire that has to watch her diet, native American gunslinger and spirit summoner (basically) team that fights off evil demons. Who all get throw together to fight a evil being and her serial killer boyfriend followed by a evil scientist to stop them from destroy the world. Sure some of the stuff is retarded, but hey how often do you get to play a RPG full of wacky humor? The story is actually really good and at the end I was really happy I played this game. I would say it's one of the best RPGs lately to come out for the PS2. The combat system is pretty cool Judgment ring that you can use to link combos and special attacks through. Example is I really like to do Double combos and it's where I'll build so much (TP basically) that I'll link every character together with double attacks. It's really in-depth how you have to use the attacks to watch where they land (ground, middle, or in the air) to match the next attack. I really liked this battle system and the fusion abilities to change into powerful beings were really amazing too. Best combo to date was a 132 hit combo for 5000 ish damage. Did that on a special boss fight ;) not saying any names. It has tons of side quests in this game not as many as say FFX, but a lot. In all beating this game and collecting everything it's about 50 hours of play. A lot of RPGs in the past I've been disappointed with one way or another, but truly this was a wonderful game and only reason I'm even giving it 4 stars is just because this is the 3rd part of a series and part was actually the best one. Though I think this one comes in second.
4-0 out of 5 stars Quirky and interesting
Shadow Hearts: From the New World continues a rather interesting series.While not quite living up to expectations formed by the previous installation in the series, Covenant, which I thoroughly enjoyed, FtNW was an entertaining romp.Gameplay mechanics were fine, and I found the judgment ring mechanics to be acceptable, even though I don't in general enjoy games which require an inordinate amount of twitching.
5-0 out of 5 stars "Don't Mess With New Yorkers!"
Normally, I would consider any year that promised a squel to Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy a banner year.But for some reason, 2006 has seen enough new fantasy games that I'm actually behind on playing them, something that hasn't happened since I first acquired my PS2.This may be the year of the new high-powered game consoles, but Sony developers certainly haven't forgotten their old reliable platform, this new Shadow Hearts sequel is exceptional, and it looks like there's more to come.
