Ogre Battle User Reviews
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 characters add to the overall playability of Ogre Battle. Another awesome game from Atlus!The bad:
Most players twenty-five years old and younger will think that the graphics are awful. Well, this game was made initially for SNES in the early 1990's, so the grahics are certainly dated. However, the story and micro-management of the game makes up for this issue. But, some players will think that there is TOO MUCH mico-management because it may take awhile to find out where the tabs are to organize and manage your troops, navigate through screens, and travel on the map. Hey, it's hard to please everybody! And that's about it for The Bad.Summary:
First off, let me say that this game won't appeal to all players. With this in mind, I must say that I have never been a really big fan of Real-Time Strategy games. I gave this game a chance when I found it super-duper cheap($5.00). It's worth way more than that and has turned out to be one of my favorite PSX games. If you are an RPG fan, who also likes Strategy games, then this blend by Atlus should be for you. If you only like racing games or shoot'em ups, or you think that PS2 has terrible graphics, it's probably best that you skip Ogre Battle.
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.
Muita estratégia e pau comendo solto.The bad:
Não poder controlar os exércitos dentro das batalhas.Summary:
Um jogo bem velinho mas essencial para quem gosta de rpg e estraégia. Um clássico, ou melhor, um épico.
When i bought Ogre Battle,i was looking from a r.p.g that gave me total control.I found it with Ogre Battle.This game gives the user total control of everything.The bad:
The graphics are not the best.Looks more like sega then playstation.Summary:
I like the fact im not automaticly givin a name.Also controling armys of units instead of a single unit is more 2 my liking.Plus this game is never the same if u decide 2 play again.
