Excerpt: Eternal Ring, at times, is a very pretty game. The frame rate is constant, and the character and monster animations are nicely done. Too much of the game, though, is fought in tight environs, giving the game an old-school corridor-crawl look. The textures of the hallways, tunnels, and caves are beautiful, but the PS2's muscle should be able to crank out more than just high-poly-count claustrophobia. Outdoor views are usually shrouded by fog.
Excerpt: On looking at the graphics on the back of the case you assume you are buying a good Adventure game. But hold on a minute when you place the cd into the drive and run the game things just dont look as good. The graphics are nice but jerky and the controls are just as bad. Gameplay i found a little repetative you just wander round trying to find rings which you can sell to buy better weapons.
Pros: Some nice graphics in certain places
Cons: Very Repetative game with bad control system
Excerpt: General/Summary: Overall, not a bad RPG game. The graphics are lacking some attention to detail. For example, if your standing next to a stone wall and swing your weapon, it does not produce any sights or sounds indicating you hit the wall. Not a big deal, but small things like that add a level of reality that was missing. Like most games, there were good and bad things about the game. The fact was the good things were enough to keep me playing.
Excerpt: General/Summary: OK, here's the scoop. If you liked the King's Field series, you're gonna like this game. Don't expect a carbon copy, but the play and concept are very similar. From Software has highly evolved the first-person RPG with Eternal Ring. I was impressed by this title, more so than most people would as it was not considered among the top-ranked games at launch.
Excerpt: Eternal Ring is one of the first launch titles for Playstation 2. Check out my review for the Playstation 2 and the quality of the overall launch titles. Also, please note that there may be spoilers in this review. If you wish to play this game and not be spoiled, stop reading this review now! You have been warned!! This game is one of a handful of RPG titles released at the launch of the Playstation 2. Unfortunately, it is as I expected for a launch title.
Excerpt: I'm a huge RPG fan, and got this immediately for the PS2. You are Cain, son of a noble father who wishes to help the King. A typical beginning, and unfortunately the first-person shooter graphics are also of Playstation-One quality, hardly taking advantage of the speed and power of the PS2. The cut scenes are uninspiring, with mouths moving much longer than it takes to get through the text.
Excerpt: I rented this game for a fiver and it was a big waste of my money. The graphics aren't bad but the story doesn't make much sense, and you can't even see the person you are playing. The battles are boring because you only can jab with your sword you can't really swing it. The magic rings are hard to find, and don't really do much to the enemy. The gem combining, and ring making are really confusing.
Summary: Entwickler: From Software Publisher: Ubisoft System: PS2 Genre: Action-RPG Sprache: Englisch Altersfreigabe: 12 Einleitung: Stell dir vor es ist ein japanischer Entwickler der gerne West-RPG's für Sony-Konsolen programmiert. Na? Von wem spreche ich wohl? Richtig, von From Software!
Pros: gelungenes Ring - Crafting - System / interessante Story / gute Steuerung
Cons: hässliche Grafik, peinliche Animationen / schlechte PAL - Anpassung / Spiel ist zu kurz
Summary: Spiel: Der König sendet dich, Cain Morgan - angehender Magier und Kämpfer - aus um eine Insel namens "insel ohne Widerkehr" zu erforschen. Dort soll sich ein Ring befinden den der König haben will und zugleich die Möglichkeit deine Vergangenheit zu erforschen. Die Story beginnt nur zäh und wird leider nicht viel besser. Leider kommt hinzu dass man kaum selbstständig agieren kann.
Pros: Die Idee
Cons: Sprachausgabe, kein Suchtfaktor, Kein Spielspass
Summary: also einige scheinen sich darüber zu ärgern das das spiel englisch ist...ich finde das ist das beste am spiel. aber die musik finde ich echt nervig. die story ist zwar erst mal interesannt, aber nach ner weile nervt das spiel. da es aber mein erstes spiel für die ps2 war lässt sich darüber hinwegsehen. hab mittlerweile zwar auch andere, spiel es aber hin und wieder drotzdem mal gerne. auserdem, wie schon gesagt, hilft die englischzensuren zu verbessern..
