Summary: Orphen is by far one of the worst... no, it is THE worst game that I have EVER played, or any of my friends have played, or anyone that I KNOW PERSONALLY have EVER played. Yeah, I know anime, I draw anime, and I KNOW there are bad dubs as WELL as GOOD dubs out in the world of anime, and that ain't EVEN WHOLLY why this game sucks! But dude, I like to think I know how to make a good game... or at least RECOGNIZE a good game when I see one! C'mon folks...
Summary: Awful.... Awful awful mess. No levelling. Ratchet and clank has more character development. Beaten in your own genre by an action game....sad. Battle system is as follows : Hold x for 3 seconds. Hold  until enemy attacks Hold x again. graphics - 2/10 (only because of excellent anime scenes) gameplay - 0/10 sound - 0/10 lifespan 0/10 overall 0/10 Really, there are better RPG's on ps1..... FF7 + FF8 for example AND they have better graphics.
Summary: I was highly dissapointed in this game. I don't even know what to say about it. The Dubbing was just horrible, I mean I've seen some bad dubbing but damn, that was pathetic. The battle system was different, but it still sucks. i hate this game but i'm too ashamed to take it back to gamestop. don't buy it.
Summary: Orphen was another prime example of a rushed game that wanted to be a launch title. It contains a little bit of [bad] voice acting at the beginning, then from there they gave up and no one moves their mouth. As for gameplay, it's very limited, pretty boring, and overall lacking. ... I don't even know why they call it orphen. You just live out someone elses adventure as you join their party. The story is one of the worst ever made. ...
Summary: Okay, this game was on my 'to buy' list but I rented it first, and to say in short, the characters bug the heck out of me. The yelling, whining & snottyness of the sister and brother are way to much. And the main char isn't much better. The way the battle is set, it is hard to figure out what your attacking and how. The camrea angles are really bad too. The only thing I liked in the game where the anime movie shorts and at times the music.
Summary: if you buy this game you are buying a drink coaster - it is horrible - the comabat system is horrible - the characters are horrible - the graphics are glitchy and the controls leave much to be desired - THIS IS A LAUNCH GAME - which means it is one of the oldest games out - DO NOT BUY _ buy DARK ALLIANCE INSTEAD
Summary: Ok, so maybe it is only once in a great while that I give a one star rating to something, but this game is so vile, and disappointing that I had to. Not only are the graphics sub-par, but the controls are awkward, and the dubbing is the worst I have ever seen... ANYWHERE! At first I thought it was kind of funny that they would start talking before thier mouth moved, and then continued flailing thier arms much after the dialog had stopped, but the humor was soon lost, and...
Summary: yawn...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...wha?......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...ORPHAN! man o man this game is the worst! i mean come on it can be better, don't be lookin at the cover sayin its good cause its not! ahem, first of which the voice-overs are horrible its one compared to FF10 which is cool, when orphan is well...not! no real faciel expresstions nottin, nada absolutly nothing.
Summary: I can't believe I bought this game, it's awful. The graphics are Playstation One quality, the music (...) and the actual gameplay is horrendous. Don't make the same mistake I did, you'll be breaking your shiny new controllers if you play this one.
Summary: More like an Activision sh*t sandwich to be exact. I guess they haven't come far from the 80's games. It is a big sh*t rocket that got stuck in the launcher and won't ever come out. -10 Poo stars!
