Do you want a game that you can constantly enjoy? A game that no matter what will make you happy to the point that you will always crawl back to it to fill your heart with joy that only a videogame can bring? Then Ogre Battle 64 is for you. If you've ever played the SNES version of Ogre Battle, you know how addictive this series gets. It's one of those games that you think that you are playing for an hour, but then you find out that it has been over four hours. But, when that realization comes to mind, you still go back for more. This is not a game meant for someone who has very little free time because once you play it, you get sucked in, and wont find joy in much of anything else. That's how good this game is. If I had a hard day at work or school and I needed to get my mind off of something, I'd go home and play Ogre Battle, and all my worries would leave me. You might think that I'm obsessing over this game a bit, but that's just what happens to you when you play it. ...
THE GOOD: Storyline is extreme, with unique characters, relationships, and plotwists.
THE BAD: The graphics aren't very good for a '99 game, but that doesn't matter. This kind of game doesn't need shining graphics to show it's beauty.
SUMMARY: This game's storyline is AWESOME, with unique characters, relationships, and plotwists. The graphics aren't very good for a '99 game, but that doesn't matter. This kind of game doesn't need shining graphics to show it's beauty. The strategy, planning, and intimate storyline make this a overall favorate. A must BUY!
The only reason I made this a 4.9 is because of the graphics, that's all.
You follow the rise to greatness of Magnus Gallant, who will go from frech academy recruit, to Battalion General, and one of the main leaders of an army. Decisions you make effect the future, what characters you'll get, what you won't, and how your battalion is designed. Very few units, all extremely powerful is one option, another is many units all equal in strength...
SUMMARY: Alright here we go. Get ready to kiss 500 hours of your life goodbye - any Strategy/RPG fan out there should sell his soul to get this game. Ogre Battle 64 offers more in a minute than most games do in a lifetime.
Graphics The graphics aren't great, I'm not going to lie, but that is expected from a console Strategy/RPG. The characters are pretty detailed, barring the face. The facial expressions really are not there, but in no way does this take away from the experience. The battle effects are sweet, and many of the spell effects are sick. The background is detailed in battle and during cutscenes, however, while your units walk from town to town, the world does not look too pretty. This matters not, however, as you'll soon grow to love these graphics.
Sound Some of the best tunes I've heard. When things get heated you'll know, and when things are happy you'll know. There are several different scores throughout the game, and each has its own great appeal. Som...
THE GOOD: The strategy, fighting animation, backgrounds, graphics, storyline, gameplay.
THE BAD: Music, lack of 3D annimation, storyline, maps.
SUMMARY: Just as the title says. You control a battalion and can make your warriors more powerful by gaining experience and changing classes into more powerful guys. The strategy is very challenging, and watching your units fight is cool. The attacks have wonderful detail. You can create units yourself and equip them with different things that you find/buy. The music gets REALLY annoying and repetitive in the beginning, but it gets a little better as you progress through the game. You are given choices throughout the game, which determine which people you start out with, and how the story will turnout. You'll notice that storyline is under good and bad. I thought that it was boring and it took too long to sit through in between missions. I wish there was a way for me to zoom through it. But if you like that kind of stuff, then you will ...
THE GOOD: I borrowed this game from my freind and I beat but I got so addicted that I bought my own copy of it a week after returning it to him.
THE BAD: The graphic's need a little work but the storyline more than makes up for it.
SUMMARY: Ogre Battle is a non-turn based RPG N64 videogame. It retails in stores for about $50 but you can't find it anymore. You will have better luck looking for a deal online. In my experience w/ Ogre Battle I have gotten three different endings and many different choices to get to those conclusions. With a variety of characters to choose from you can customize your army to your own specification's. Some of the charecter's include Paladin's and Dark Knights. There is also a variety of different weapons and items to choose from that have good as well as bad effects on yourself as well as the enemy. All in all I say that this game is great for experienced RPG player's as well as beginners. The storyline is great and you will never get bored with thi...
THE GOOD: Great storyline, graphics, gameplay, I could go on forever!
THE BAD: Bad? Not in this game!
SUMMARY: This game has a storyline that I actually read! With me, that is unheard of. In most games, I pray for a skip feature such as in Front Mission 3. However, this is not the case. The graphics are perfect for this game, although they are not the most impressive things, they definitely get the job done. The job system is awesome. After you get used to getting through all the menus, they will be navigated with ease.
With multiple scenarios and a crapload of customizable character options, this game will have you busy for months! My advice to you: if you like rpg's or strategy at all, BUY THIS GAME!
SUMMARY: This game is phenomenal! It totally lives up the original ogre battle and then some. The storyline is great, the cutscenes are portrayed very well, with intelligent absorbing script. The fighting and unit upgrading is very similar to the first ogrebattle. improvments include item requirements as well as statisticle requirments. Instead of your units only heading straight to your destination (which is one option), you can also command your units to chase any opposing units they come across or avoid them. All in all i am thouroughly enjoying it and find as good if not better than the original
