PSX Extreme
9 September 2005
  • Excerpt: The Corsione family, the bad guys of this game, are releasing a super powerful drug named SEED, which is extremely addictive and ultimately fatal to the person using it. Grave, Mika and Spike set out to destroy the drug and come across two more characters, which make up the rest of the three playable people, named Juji and Billy. The game is pretty simple, you run from A to B in an arcade style, shooting as many enemies as you possibly can.

Gungrave Overdose

GamersHell.com
26 July 2005
  • Excerpt: is a fairly interesting anime from 2003 that recounts the tale of two good friends, Harry MacDowell and Brandon Heat. Harry is by far the more outspoken of the two, and as they grow up they form quite a bond through the trouble they cause and the laws they break. These two live in a run-down, fictional city, where a mafia group by the name of Millenion controls everything.

  • Conclusion: The game takes place a few years after the first game, the young ward Mika is now in her late teens and is still fighting against the proliferation of the new designer drug Seed, which is turning users into a dangerous army. Needing help in the war, Mika once again calls on Grave to enter the fray with guns blazing.

Gungrave: Overdose – Review

GameCritics.com
1 June 2005
  • Excerpt: Normally, the reviews here at GameCritics.com start with what I like to call a preamble—Chi and Dale like it when we find a theme or an idea that resonates outside of the gaming industry and tie it into the game review itself. However, sometimes one must just cut to the chase, and the chase here is that Gungrave: Overdose is a bad game.

Gungrave: Overdose Review

11 February 2005
  • Excerpt: Some say the Japanese are mad. Think contestant-maiming game-shows. Think incomprehensible television advertisements featuring Posh and Becks in aprons. Think giggling Japanese schoolgirls competing in the wonder that is cosplay. Think co-ordinated multiplayer Dance Dance Revolution... Me? I held out hope there was some big plan - some mighty agenda the Japanese held secret.

Gungrave: Overdose

Just RPG
7 February 2005
  • Excerpt: Gungrave: Overdose is an action-packed shooter based on the popular Gungrave anime. The game is violent, chaotic and all around crazy as you go from level to level obliterating everything in your path. Unfortunately, control problems and extremely repetitive gameplay keep it from being as positive an experience as it could have been.

GunGrave: OverDose

Playstation Illustrated
7 February 2005
  • Excerpt: For those of you who remember GunGrave , and groan at the mere mention of its name, then cheer up. GunGrave: Overdose is the game you were looking for the first time around. To put it simply, the graphics of Overdose look like a full-rendered 3D anime. It took me a while to put my finger on the style. As you move through the huge levels, you will encounter cemeteries, office buildings and casinos that seem to come straight out of just about any modern anime.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Gungrave Overdose serves up a decent dish of arcade style shooting, that should appeal to Gungrave fans. Interactive environments, bonus features, and the addition of new playable characters should add more appeal to the overall package. Unfortunately the action is a bit too long drawn and repetitive, and while I enjoyed some of what the game offered early on, after spending forever and a day in each level I honestly couldn't wait until the entire experience...

  • Excerpt: In 2002, the PS2 got an action-packed title known as Gungrave that was nice to look at but didn’t play very well. Fast forward two years later and we get a big upgrade to the Gungrave franchise with Gungrave: Overdose. This title has much better gameplay, a good story, and solid graphics. The best part is that it only retails for fifteen bucks! Yes, you read that right... fifteen bucks!

Gungrave: Overdose PlayStation 2 Review

Game Info Wire
7 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Somehow, RED Entertainment found a way to turn mediocre graphics, even more mediocre sound, and over-simplistic gameplay into something that keeps me coming back.
