Summary: I saw the clips of this game running on the net, wow I thought, what lovely effects & what a wonderful dragon that you have to fight. I wanted something to get my teeth into on my new shiny PSX2 so an RPG was just the thing.
Summary: My Girlfreinds a wonderful lady, I love her dearly and would not swap her for the world. She knows how much I like the Tomb Raider series and how much I love my PS2. So, she thought that Orphen would fill the void until TR-Next Gen comes around.
Summary: After playing this game for only 1 hour, I put it back in its box and traded it in for something else. Why? Well, it certainly may *look* nice, but the gameplay is so lacking as to be practically invisible!
Summary: i don't know who is putting in these "excellent" reviews but i suspect they may be agents of activision. this game is awful, the story is slow, the voice acting is lame to say the least, the puzzles are easy & the powerups and pickups are not necessary to complete the game.
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.
