  • Summary: this isn't really a fun game it is basically a look at how great the PS2 graphics are for one of the first games I think its ok but still thsi game isn't really worth the money get Dynasty Warriors

boring!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Summary: When I first played this game I was excited to play it but when I did it got so boring. First of all I like strategy games but in this one all you mainly do is watch. If you like to watch how your directions and orders come out you'll probably like this game but if you prefer games where you fight and you control the characters try the game Dynasty Warriors 2 which is one of my favorite.

VERY BAD GAME PLAY!

Anthony, Amazon

  • 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 really do much though the whole game but watch fights so it gets old VERY fast, because its always the same.

If you like watching movies and pushing the X button......

  • 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! That thought faded very quickly when the first "battle" started.

Ok game...

Cainz "cainz", Amazon
26 December 2000
  • Summary: Ok game but the setup is very bad... If you don't have a memory card then don't buy this game... First of all the first board takes 30 minutes to get through and you don't get to do anything because it is a tutorial... So if you don't save the game you have to play the first board, and also the gameplay isn't free enough, it practicly plays itself... If you have a memory card, it's a good game, if you don't i wouldn't recomend it.

This would be an incredible game. . .

  • Summary: . . If it weren't for the fact that you just don't get that much in return for the amount of time you spend setting the game up. The creator of the game spends a majority of the first 3 hours of "game play" giving you an in-depth look at Japanese history, and whereas this is interesting and all, it's not what I bought the game for. I was looking for the old time fun of "Nobunaga's Ambition" (sp?) for the original Nintendo.

Good at first but too repetitive

J. Feira, Amazon

  • Summary: Graphically this is a nice game, but the gameplay becomes repetitive and boring. The cut-scenes, while visually impressive, become annoying very quickly. Also winning battles is far too easy, and there is little story line in the game.

Strategie, Orient, Tolle Grafik .. doch

PMadCat, Ciao
1 February 2005
  • Summary: Für einen Japan Fan und liebhaber von Strategie und Rollenspielen war dieses Spiel der totale Frust. Die Grafik gab zwar was her und das Thema ist an sich auch sehr interessant. Doch ist der Ablauf langsam, fast schleppend der Bildschirm unübersichtlich aufgebaut und die Truppenführung einfach ein Krampf.
  • Pros: Sieht toll aus und hört sich gut an
  • Cons: Frust  .  .  .

Schwaches Strategie-Release auf der PS2

TimManz, Ciao
26 December 2000
  • Summary: Als Strategiefan habe ich sehnsüchtig auf den BRD-Release von Kessen gewartet. Doch leider wurde ich bitter enttäuscht! Die Grafik des Spiels ist zwar stellenweise atemberaubend, aber was den Taktikpart betrifft, kann man nur sagen, voll daneben. Die Eingriffsmöglichkeiten, die man auf das Kampfgeschehen hat, sind doch sehr begrenzt. Man denkt des öfteren, was mache ich hier eigentlich und warum??
  • Pros: tolle Grafik und Sound
  • Cons: mieses Gameplay
