Summary: Got this game for $20, at that price point the game becomes worth it for casual buyers. Pro's: 1.) the story is dark and intriguing 2.) level up system takes the edge off grinding 3.) voice acting ain"t too shabby Cons: 1.) grinding for levels 2.
Summary: Drakengard is the illegitimate child of Dynasty Warriors and the minds of the folks at Square-Enix on an acid trip. The game plays like a typical hack and slash (i.e. you'll press square and on SOME occasions triangle); throngs of SOMEWHAT intelligent enemies will throw themselves at you, and there are some "target" enemies for you to eliminate to complete a level (or at the very least, reach a certain area).
Summary: I played this game and I'm glad I borrowed it. The plot is really good but its the gameplay that brings it down completely. It was slow and boring, nothing different execpt pressing the same button over and over again, I am usually I fan of this genre, but this one was terrible. Go buy Dynasty Warriors, more action and fun.
Summary: Squeenix does it again! Another interesting game by Square-Enix. Drakengard has simply gorgeous graphics and is overall very addictive. Gameplay is relatively easy, though sometimes tedious. The plot is split into chapters, and within each chapter are Missions, Movies, and Events. The player has control during Missions and partial control during events. Movies are stunning, albeit slightly graphic, FMVs. There are two modes of gameplay: Story and Free Expedition.

Summary: As an avid fan of the Dynasty Warriors franchise, I was looking forward to this fantasy take on the idea. Unfortunately it falls short. Where Dynasty Warriors(DW) had loads of strategy, Drakengard has almost none. DW required you to balance the attacks of your army and keep their morale in check to help sway the battle in your favor. DW found you fighting alongside hundreds of friends and foes.
Summary: "Drakengard" is what happens when you take "Draken: The Ancients' Gates," mix it liberally with "Dynasty Warriors" and "Panzer Dragoon," and throw in an anmie copy of the plot for the film "Dragonheart." It offers a fun diversion in short spurts, but gulp down too much at a time and you're sure to be hit by the numbing repetition of it all.
Excerpt: "...crazy storyline; when I got Drakengard a few years ago I could already tell it was something worth a play. Now that I have the chance to write down and consider the pros and cons of Drakengard after playing it several times over the years, I'd have to say that while the storyline was unique and different from others (though confusing), the game play can be repetitive, voice acting was somewhat poor concerning some characters and the camera angles ...
Pros: Unique story line, mostly good voice acting and great cut scenes .
Cons: Somewhat repetitive game play, annoying camera angles and the plot is confusing .
Summary: Ich habe nicht den blassesten Schimmer, wie sich ziemlich hartnäckig das Gerücht halten konnte, dass es sich im Fall von "Drakengard" um ein Rollenspiel halten würde. Angesichts der Ebbe dieses Genres im PS2-Bereich eher nur Wunschdenken oder sollte es sich sogar um arglistige Täuschung handeln, um ahnungslose und zudem ausgehungerte RPG-Freaks anlocken und somit zum Kauf verleiten zu können.
