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.
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.
Summary: Ring of Red is an incredible strategy game by Konami (makers of everything from Contra on the NES to Metal Gear Solid 2 for the PS2.) This game will take well over 30-40 hours to play for you marathon gamers. I was rather unhappy with the ending for it ended abruptly. I hope Ring of Red II will come out soon to tie up the loose ends in this one.
Summary: This is a great game for several reasons. The beautiful graphics will catch your attention and the depth will keep you hooked for weeks.One might be tempted to call "Ring of Red," a true mech sim instead of a game."Front Mission" fans will notice a lot of similarities in "Ring of Red." It's a great strategy game for many ages! The play or battles are long and the sequences can't be skipped, making the game some what boring for quick action fans.
The first PS2 title I've played, and well worth it!

Summary: Ring of Red is the first game I played on my spanking new PS2, and it succeeded in getting me glued to my seat for the next several hours. Ring of Red puts you in control of a squad of mechs (much like Squaresoft's Front Mission games) and you'll have about 50 missions (each with different objectives) to undertake. You are placed in an overworld map with grids you can move on, and you can do several things on your turn -- attack, recover, move, standby...
Summary: This game is ok while the thing that kills me is after every mission the diary secences they are SO anoying! Also the LONG battles!if you want full joy out of this game get a gameshark!with out it the game takes hours for one fight If I were people who arnt into Stratagy games and just into the mechs dont even bother! the mechs are stupid looking except the 4 leged and regular AFW's...
Summary: This game is good. Its fun to play and the graphics are quite good. I reccommend it. A downside to it is frustrating save function (You can save you exact spot in a mission and load it once, but if you dont save again and you turn it off or die, you have to redo the WHOLE mission -not game- just the current mission.), poor quality sound (Just not very good quality. Very poor sounding, but maybe can be improved by a monster AV 200 or 300 cable?
Summary: This game is pretty good, if u like mechwarrior or srategy games. The game has decent grahpics and is worth buying. The only thing dissapointing about this game is the format. The game should of let you be more people besides the Mech, or robot. the game should of let you be the infantry, or rocket launchers. Then i would of gave the game five stars. All in all its a pretty good game and it has a good story to it.
Summary: To start this off, I had my doubts about this game, BUT I trusted a friend enough to give it a shot. This is a fun game for ages 13 and up. The gameplay is "turned based" kinda like a RPG (Role Playing game) HEY don't go away yet if you don't likr RPG's you still might like this game. It reminded me of Chess in a way because you had to move each character on a "board map" and you battle the enemy.
