Summary: A must-play for any Cavia fans. Unparallelled craziness. There'll never be a story as willing to outright shock a player like this. The gameplay can also be quite addictive if you have a high tolerance for tedium(guilty as changed).
Summary: at first this game seems boring but after you level up a weapon and the dragon it gets real addictive. it is a very repetitive game with little strategy involved. you only need to figure which weapons kill the bad guys the easiest. also you need to know when to use the dragon for aerial attack. just remember level up the dragon too because he can do great damage from the sky. there are too many weapons to really master all of them.
Summary: This game is NOT for everyone. Many people will hate the camera, tire of the combat, and loathe the soundtrack. Many of those looking to play the prequel to NieR, and expecting the gameplay to be remotely similar will be disappointed. It's loud, noisy, and very, very repetitive. But the story is AMAZING. I could write all day about the story. You start off in control of a guy named Caim. Seems like a fairly typical protagonist undergoing a fairly typical story.
Summary: Drakengard was moderately recommended to me by friends and as an RPG collector I bought it anyway. I just gained a 100% completion and thank God it's over. So, some pros. The game play, despite being too similar to Dynasty Warriors, was incredibly addicting. Unlike Dynasty Warriors, Drakengard actually has a decent soundtrack with full orchestra accompaniment and doesn't have tons of ridiculously overpowered characters... they have one.
Summary: Well, I'm close to the end, with two endings left to view, which means I've gotten an idea of what the game has to offer (finally). Initially I enjoyed running around in massive battlefields hacking enemies into pieces, or flying on the dragon and using her fire breath to wipe out large groups of the bad guys at once. Then that got old (and the game got difficult) so I got tired of it and put it away.
Drakengard! can't put it down. for about an hour than it goes down!

Summary: I've read the reviews of this game and seen how it has been brutally slashed and burned! however, i see this game as a hell of alot of fun. that may be because i don't mind just hacking and slashing my way through endless armies but heck! smashing the square button is fun. IN addition, the story is thick and rich and the movies look spectacular! However, the in game music is slightly disturbing and the endless button smashing does get dull after awhile.
Summary: Darkengard isn't like Final Fantasy, definitely. It's not an RPG, it's an ACTION RPG, which I'm sick of people knocking because of the lack of stats. Drakengard was original in the most part, just that the gameplay kind of got on my nerves and the lack of allies PO'ed me. ---Drakengard's graphics are decent.
Summary: Jeez. I'm surprised that a lot of these reviews are horrible. Honestly, they're not giving this game enough credit. Yes, like, every game, it has it's faults. But the pros ultimately overwiegh the cons by a longshot, in this action RPG. To make it easier, I'll just separate everything into categories. ---Plot: The plot for this game is unique. No one can deny the game that. I've never seen a game so original in quite some time.
