Ring of Red

Into Liquid Sky
15 May 2005
  • Excerpt: Konami's Ring of Red is THE GAME for strategy fans. Set in the 1960's, ROR takes an alternate history in which Japan didn't submit after the bombings during WWII and is subsequently defeated when taken over by the allied forces. After this occurs, Japan is divided into three separate countries, each of which has a different type of government and exists in a bitter peace.
  • Pros: Excellent, deep strategy, Involving and innovative battle scheme, You feel like you're in an actual war
  • Cons: LONG battles (1 to 4 hours a piece), Music is lackluster, If main character dies, you lose the battle

Ring of Red – Review

  • Excerpt: Few things can be truly credited with changing our world, but the things that do are generally agreed upon in consensus across the world. Language is probably the biggest one. Others would certainly mention the wheel, medicine and electricity as extremely significant. However, I also believe that one thing which may not be mentioned quite as often as other notables would be war.

  • Excerpt: Ring Of Red is that title. Konami has taken a unique approach by placing the story in an alternate past instead of the traditional alternate future. They then seamlessly wove the appearance and deployment of AFW’s into this past. By using both stock war footage and newly created video, they show how AFW’s were used during the war. Everything in this alternative past has not been replaced with mechas, but instead they are simply one piece to the wartime puzzle.

  • Excerpt: In the long line of strategy games, they have always been released on the PC. If you wanted to pick up an excellent strategy title, you would be forced to turn to a PC in order to fulfill your desire. But in this day and age, as our technology progresses every so rapidly, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

Ring of Red Review

GameSpot
15 March 2001
  • Excerpt: The sheer draw of the giant-robot genre--whether it takes the form of a cartoon, comic book, or video game--is not to be underestimated. Konami's latest strategy game, Ring of Red, is just the latest manifestation of our world's obsession with giant andromorphic machines. Thankfully, it's also a well designed and fully realized addition to the console strategy genre.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Excerpt: Konami, décidément très prolifique sur PS2, nous offre cette fois-ci un wargame des plus jouissifs. Sur fond de guerre mondiale, Ring Of Red parvient à établir un excellent compromis entre stratégie et action.
