THE GOOD: The best aspect of Ogre Battle, to me, is that there are so many ways to play this game. You can follow a "Holier Than Thou" path, an "Ok, whatever" path, and a "Kill Them All" path (and everything else in between). With that said, the re-play value is high because there are at least 12 different endings, depending on your Alignment, choices throughout the game, and your overall Luck. The total control over your troops, characters, items, etc., adds to this old school blend of RPG/Strategy. Charcters and campaigns are awfully cool, too (C'mon, a Fighter named Garlic?...classic). Weapons and items found in Ogre Battle are also bright spots. Neutral character encounters are also very interesting because you can have the chance to recruit them into your army, and normally, those characters are valuable to your cause. The encounters with Neutral characters can be few and far between, so when you find them, try to recruit them. Taking over towns and finding special chara...
THE GOOD: The good part about Ogre Battle 64 is that you get to choose what type of charters you want and don't have to use anybody you don't like. Also you get to control more than just one group of people at a time. There are many choices to make which will lead you to differnt places and people. The game has a good replay value because unless you make the same choices you will go to diffent places fight different battles and meet different people.
THE BAD: The bad part of the game is that the graphics aren't so great and after a while you get tired of looking at the tv screen. Also to get special people you have to do certin things and it is kinda hard to get some of them.
SUMMARY: Some of the charcters look kind of like clay figures on the world map. If your looking for a game with intense graphics this is not it.
