Amazing game

Lucas, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: The map is very similar to Fire emblem or Advance wars and there is a ton of tactics involved. The mechs are the best looking ive ever seen i prefer the big chunky slow mechs compared to the many futuristic titles out there.

a rare miss for Konami

Chief Slapaho, Amazon

  • Summary: Story- This was a "what if they had mechs instead of tanks and plains in the cold war" scenario. Ok, it seems a tad silly and dumb. I don't see why they couldn't incorperate air combat into a mech scenario, retro or otherwise. So you take your slow moving mech out to fight other mechs. Which leads us to gameplay. Gameplay- The game, if you can call it that, is more like watching FMV or cut scenes. Did you like Kessen from Koei? This might be something you can dig.

Perfect Condition

  • Summary: The game came with original case with no damage. The manual was included and was in perfect condition. The manual did not have any tears, stains, or marks whatsoever. The condition of the disc was perfect without the slightest scratch.

Very interesting

Darren Mcguire "Korne", Amazon
7 May 2010
  • Summary: This is an interesting SRPG where you control the units in combat (a bit like Sega's Valkyria Chronicals). The story is pretty forgettable, most of the characters are extremely cliche, and the combat is way too slow. That being said, I still really enjoyed the game. I played through it with a friend, and was glad to do it. Ring of Red is a very unique experience, which is what I am always looking for.

Not bad at all

Richard Wong "Wolf", Amazon
2 March 2007
  • Summary: This is a good solid turn-based strategy game. You can save the game between missions and you can save the game within each mission. However, for a game which is saved within a mission, it can only be load up once. In other words, you cannot reload multiple times. You can restart from the beginning of the mission, just not the middle. This is both good and bad. It makes the game alot tougher and forces you to really think about your moves. I like it.

Ok, worth it if you can find it cheap

Grunt43, Amazon
12 July 2006
  • Summary: Here's the plot, WWII happened totally diferently and lasted longer. Japan is the battleground and center of the world even though it is in ruins and split much like the Korean penninsula. Tanks are replaced by akward walking tanks that are totally unpractical and inferior to those used in WWII.

A game for people who prefer play over graphics

Jeff Lariviere, Amazon
26 February 2003
  • Summary: If there was a contest for ugliest PS2 game ever made, Ring of Red would probably take the cake. Visual prowess, however, is not everything. Ring of Red is probably the most challenging game I have ever set my sights upon. It's a turn-based stratgey in the vein of Front Mission 3 or Mechwarrior.

Try it first.

Jason McShane, Amazon
7 November 2002
  • Summary: This is not your typical game but very appealing. You might want to borrow or rent it before you purchase it. I have had many friends love it and some hate it. It's up to you but it would be wise to try it first! The gameplay can be very slow and time consuming in parts but for the most part it keeps a o.k. pace.

Weak

A. Kim, Amazon
23 August 2002
  • Summary: This is an awful game. The gameplay is really weak. I was hoping that this might be a great strategy game for the PS2, but it was a very lame action game that tries to throw in some strategy aspects and fails at both attempts. You control a group of mecs and the strategy lies in moving them around a "chess board" type landscape. The action part of the game involves you deciding when you want to shoot the other mec.
