  • Summary: Awesome, awesome game. The storyline is a little complicated, with a few 'Huh, whazzat?' moments, but on the whole, a BEAUTIFUL game. Great graphics, great gameplay. I kept hearing about a sequel, but could never find anything that seemed legitimate.

  • Excerpt: Vagrant Story You are Ashley Riot, a troubleshooter for the crown who is going to investigate a rebel faction. The plot of the game becomes complicated and even at the end of the game I wasn’t sure why half the events going on were happening or what role the characters played.
  • Pros: Innovative system, good gameplay
  • Cons: Dated graphics, possiblity of being trapped on level .

  • Excerpt: I first bought Vagrant story because I needed a new game to sustain me till Final Fantasy IX came out. This was a good move. The new battle controls take some time to get used to but when you do, you will enjoy the game so much you won't want to stop.
  • Pros: original battle system and free roaming environment .
  • Cons: Can get quite hard .

  • Excerpt: Vagrant Story is, quite simply, superb, and far better than anything Final Fantasy VIII can offer. Until anything like Dark Cloud comes out on the PS2, this is one of the best RPGs around (Orphan…well, what can I say?
  • Pros: Lots of original features, bosses, and secret areas .
  • Cons: A bit of a dodgy battle system

  • Excerpt: As usual square give us a nice looking RPG without decent sound, we can only hope they sort this out for PSX2. You play Ashley Riot in a nice plotted game with a couple of tricky puzzles. You can spend hours making weapons in the weaposn rooms so you can fight the beasts, dragons & other creatures.
  • Pros: RPG fun for all
  • Cons: No sound
