great game!

Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: I think Kessen is a great strategic game.It seems annoying to begin with because there is only one track and the controls are fairly difficult. There is no way to know how your armies are going to fair and their is nothing to teach you before you plunge into the campaign.

The 1st DVD Game for the Playstation 2!

Francis Nunziata, Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time playing this game before I gave out my review so I can be completely sure about my rating. The first thing I want to say about this game is that it has excellent graphics and decent voice acting.

Visual Eye candy

Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: This DVD-rom game for PS2 is great. watching the Five minute opening sequence is like watching the battle sequences in movies like the patriot and braveheart. The game is dubbed in English from the Japanese version but the graphics and strategy make up for it.

VERY BAD GAME PLAY!

Anthony, Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: My 1st review: Yes, it is true this game may have killer vidoes... but that's all it is basicly, When you start there is a tutorial that takes about a half hour to go through, (the whole time you're pressing X and reading) then you finally get to play and you are totally confused, And you don't...

Brent Haley, Amazon

  • Summary: I recieved a Playstation 2 and Tekken Tag Tournament and Kessen for Christmas this year. I had never heard of Kessen before, or read anything about it. I popped in the game and watched the beautiful introduction video. Seeing that, I thought...cool game!

Kessen...so immersive it's almost scary

St Jon Clark, Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: I've never played a game quite like Kessen. In general I am an action/adventure player, with Metal Gear Solid at the top of my list for best game on the PS1. Unlike the sharp, precise universe of MGS, Kessen unleashes a veritable flood of imagery, history and strategy and somehow manages to suck you...

Underrated and misunderstood

L. Zhang, Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: I think this game is underrated. It is actually a great game that suffers a little from misguided expectations. Koei never makes games that are truly mainstream -- this game comes about as close as it does (except Dynasty Warriors, but those aren't designed by Koei).

A step sideways...

Christian Nelson, Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: Koei are most well known for their amazing Romance ofthe Three Kingdoms games. Most people were turned off by the complexities of the games, but those who liked a good strat. game haven't stopped hailing it as the best war sim series ever to hit consoles.

A Hidden Classic

Jon, Amazon
2 July 2004
  • Summary: True strategy. If you can figure out the controls and the interface, which may take a little while, you can become a truly great commander. I love this series. The battles can range from massive to skirmishes and the campaign is relatively short, but it changes based on whether you win or lose your...
