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.
Summary: Please don't waste your money on Ring of Red, You'll only dissapoint yourself by doing so. The reason why is because it is a terrible game, after a couple days of playing this game, you'll never want to play it again. In the 10 hours I wasted playing this game, the only thing I ever did was walk around the world map fighting enemy robots.
Summary: I just rented this game and I think its horrible! I've read the reviews here and it seems some people actually liked this game. I can't see why. It is painfully SLOW. The action is reduced to a wobbling site that has to be placed on a target before you fire...hardly worthy of the PS2. Aside from that, you have to sit through babbling conversations between characters before you actually get to play. Tank battle on my Atari 2600 had much better action than this game.
Summary: This is a comic book. With too much plot. Endless pages of text dialog you must scroll through before getting to even a very short action sequence. Even the action is dull and has too much dialog. After a while, I quit reading and just kept pushing the buttons to get through the text and get to some action. If you're looking for action - look elsewhere.
Summary: ...The game consists of an endless amount of poorly scripted chit chat and boring cinematics. The actual play of the game is even worse. You have 2 play views, first is the landscape type view where you can walk around and attack, second is the attack view where you have little control. When you're fighing you wait for your weapon to charge, while doing so you can tell your 2 squads to attack or prepare their special attack and move your mech BOTH forward AND backward..
