The Bouncer Review by Vergil Ties

The fourteenth round saw a short list of reviews facing off for the win, though that's not to say it was any less exciting! With quite a split round of voting, the result was no less than a four-way tie. Emerging from the group to claim the prize, Vergil Ties and his review for The Bouncer. Giving the beat-'em-up title a low score, he discusses how it may have great graphics, but that it lacks anything decent in the way of more vital elements such as plot and gameplay.

 The Bouncer     Score: 1.0/5
 Genre: Action Adventure

 Dreamfactory were way too busy jacking it to the graphics to actually program a video game. The Bouncer is a colossal failure and a waste of 2+ hours.

quote Vergil Ties
The Bouncer is one of those titles that Square are – or ought to be – embarrassed with. It was a piece of shit through and through with a laughably crap story and lackluster gameplay that failed to titillate the senses. Now, this was back during the PS2's launch, which wasn't exactly its best time, and there was pressure to make it seem like the next big thing in gaming. The Bouncer was meant to showcase the PS2's power, and while it certainly had some nice graphics, the game was a piece of shit. Don't ask me why people like it, because then I'll have to explain how people can stomach about half the shit on MTV, and I'm not that *bleep*ing smart! But enough procrastination – let's dive into this putrid pile of piss that verifies the fact that graphics do not make a game!

Bare witness to a damsel in distress plot, as our main character, Sion, and his bouncer buddies, Volt and Kou, all have to rescue Sion's good friend, Dominique, from a solar energy corporation. There. That's your entire story.
