a rare miss for Konami

Chief Slapaho, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • 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.

Very interesting

  • 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.

Ok, worth it if you can find it cheap

  • 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.

Try it first.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Even though I never played the game, it still looks just dandy. I hope it is like Barneys adventure, because that is my favorite game.

Ring of Red for PlayStation 2

scream4bruce, Dooyoo
30 September 2006
  • Excerpt: The premise for Ring of Red is this. As World War II came to an end, Japan refused to give in to the Allied Forces and was eventually overwhelmed. It would be occupied by opposing political forces which left the North and South to be in conflict with each other. These differences soon grew out of hand and lead to a war across the country. International alliances had come in and brought about cease-fire without solving the issue at hand. The country remained divided.

big mechs = big battles

ng123, Ciao

  • Excerpt: --Ring of Red-- --£4.99-- --GAME-- --Introduction-- If you read manga or watch anime, you'll know about mechs or mecha, giant robots, they fly, shoot, launch rockets etc and engage into massive battles in space. Ring of Red isn't like that sadly, the mechs rely on crew members and a driver or piolt in the cockpit. The battles are great, the graphics are great, this is a strategy game that will make you more than happy.
  • Pros: Great mech battles
  • Cons: Boring music

Best game with Red in the title ....

  • Excerpt: Ring of Red is one of those games that is so simplistic as to be a great game. The setting of the game is based on an alternate history where Japan was divided up after World War 2 in much the same way as Germany was. Another twist is that primitive walkers (mechs) were used as all terrain combat platforms in WWII, (they have video footage to prove it too!).
  • Pros: A well presented alternative mech game
  • Cons: Music can get a bit repetitive
