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

  • 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: 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.
