Gungrave – Review

8 May 2005
  • Excerpt: Anyone who's been reading critical analysis of the arts over the years is no doubt familiar with the phrase style over substance. The terminology denotes an aesthetic at work in the piece of art being critiqued—the intentional or accidental creation of something that is breathtaking in its presentation, but rather empty beneath the surface.

Playstation Illustrated
5 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Graphics are about all that Gungrave has going for it. If Anime looked this good, I wouldn't stop watching it. Unfortunately, that's about all you can do in this game; watch it. It carries a heavily animated feel to it, even during the actual gameplay. Characters and backgrounds are almost indiscernible from each other, and a healthy portion of the scenery is alterable.

Into Liquid Sky
22 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Few games have been known purely as an action game. With so many genres meshing together, it's sometimes fun to just pop in an action game and not having to worry about finding some hidden key to open a door and finding a magical crest. Instead, Gungrave offers straight-up action any time you want it.
  • Pros: Stylish and very fun to play, Great art and character design, Good music that fits the mood, The price is right (20 dollars)
  • Cons: Can get repetitive, Very short game

GunGrave Overdose

Defunct Games
26 October 2004
  • Summary: At $15 this game is a steal, but it's also one of the most enjoyable arcade-style action games of the year. Buy it for the over the top violence, buy it for the story, buy it for the anime. Whatever your reason, Gungrave Overdose has a lot to offer for a very small price. This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.

Expert Review

23 October 2003
  • Excerpt: It is funny to see how Hollywood influences anime, anime shapes Hollywood and how they both impact videogames. For instance, take a hard look at The Matrix, which is essentially an anime moved into the live action arena. Then consider how videogame titles from every genre, from Madden to Dynasty Warriors, have used the so-called Matrix Effect. Gungrave’s mixture of Hollywood and anime may not be a first but few games have done it with more flair.

The Armchair Empire
5 December 2002
  • Conclusion: Grave is brought back into action at the request of Mika, a young girl who is the daughter of the former head of the mafia (and Grave’s old boss in the organization). Blah, blah, blah… plot… the mission-opening phrase says it all “Kick their Ass!” If you can’t figure out what kind of game you’re getting into with that catchphrase, there’s nothing I can do for you.
