Excerpt: When I first heard about Atlus’s Metal Saga, I thought the game looked like an interesting RPG and thought the story sounded rather fun. Now that the game has been released, I was very excited and couldn’t wait to slide it into the Playstation 2 and give it a go.
Conclusion: If you're looking for an RPG to pass the time with while you're waiting for the next great adventure Metal Saga is definitely worth looking at. As things stand I can only see hardcore RPG fans looking for something different to get the most out of it.
Excerpt: It was apparent from the start that Metal Saga was not made for players like me. Though claiming to be open-ended, the game strongly encourages the path of adventure. "Settling down" is anathema.
Conclusion: One interesting aspect of Metal Saga is that it has a unique appeal to it. Even though it’s not the most entertaining RPG out right now, it’ll have a following all of its own. It has next to no replay value thanks to the way the game is setup but again, it has humor and a distinct style.
