Summary: Like the title says, Orphen:Scion Of Sorcery gets a lot of abuse for no good reason. Sure it's one of the first games for PS2 so it isn't perfect, but there are a lot worse games out there. Graphically, Orphen still looks pretty good.
Summary: The game has poor graphics and animation in comparison to newer games but this was only one of the first games to hit the PS2 and as long as you can ignore this you will be able to see how good this game really is. Orphen is a challenging game and has a solid story line with developed characters.
Summary: Okay, I'll admit at first I was a bit sceptical about this game especially when I completed it first. The graphics in this game are very good considering this was an early PS2 title, the gameplay is fun and the puzzles are indeed challenging.
Summary: Well, I personally liked Orphen : Scion of Sorcery. I probably liked it because as stated, Orphen is also an anime and getting to see those few anime sequences here and there got my attention.
Excerpt: when trouble is abound and you cant lock on to which target you want to attack, you're more likely to gain satisfaction from throwing your dual shock at the screen than slowly chipping bits of hp of the enemies at hand.
Excerpt: I was looking forward to Orphen, hoping it would entertain me while I waited for Final Fantasy X, but I was disappointed (sorry). It started off pretty good but I must admit I found it very repetitive, literally!
Excerpt: Orphen could have been so much better. I know its not a nice way to start a review but that’s the way it is. I had been thinking about buying this game for a while and was never really convinced that it would be very good.
Pros: Looks good, sounds good, plays good
Cons: Just doesnt compete with other RPGs on the market
