Summary: This was a game I bought not really knowing what to expect. It seems slow at first, but keeps you going. There are always things to find and it has a lot of replay value for that reason. Did you know that finding five knives can give you a rusty sword which can give you an awesome sword? Little things like this keep you coming back for more! Jennifer isn't the greatest protagonist in the world, but she's realistic.
Summary: Rule of Rose is a good horror game. The story is about a girl who is in a place filled with childern who shows hatered on adults. Jennifer is the main character later on she meets a dog that is tied up. The game is banned in some countries for the cruel nature. The game is creepy but the combat system is so unforgiving. Jennifer is weak, she lacks power in her swings, you do get a gun later on in the game. Rule of Rose is eh... somewhat long around 15 hours or so.
Summary: A third-person horror game ala "Silent Hill" and "Clocktower," "Rule of Rose" puts you in the shoes of Jennifer, an orphaned teenager with more than enough timidness to do her any good, as she waits on a bus which is taking her to an orphanage in 1930s English countryside which is to be her new home.
Summary: This game is pretty difficult to obtain, essentially with everything (the manual, case and CD). The game is an awesome psychological horror game with intense subject matter so be warned (cause quite a bit on controversy). I would highly recommend this game to anyone interested in a twisted, mature story.
Excerpt: "Rule of Rose is quite a rare little gem along my PS2 collection of games and I have only recently became the owner of a European PAL version of the game. I managed to score this Italian copy (although it plays in English) from ebay for a bargain price of £48 including delivery. Considering the English copy is going for around £600 or something silly it is a pretty good price and the game usually sells for closer to the £60 mark. We've been waiting ...
Excerpt: "From what I read in the back of my game box, it truly didn't look too interesting--but "boy" was I glad I actually went with my intuition and bought it! Despite my misgivings, when I first turned the PS2 on, immediately, was I awed by the insanely awesome graphics that I saw. The opening theme song, '_Love Suicide_' was a haunting melody that caused me to actually pick up the controller and play. Although the quality of the graphics were good in ...
Pros: Good graphics, excellent storyline, music is a must - hear, second playthrough is well - worth the wait . ;]
Excerpt: rule of rose Intorno a questo gioco gravano delle voci infondate, sul fatto che bisognava seppellire vive le bambine. Inutile dire che è una cosa stupida è che non succede proprio per tutto il gioco, e che la protagonista ha 19 anni. naturalmente queste voci le hanno messe su i soliti bigotti che hanno bisogno sempre di scagliarsi contro qualcosa, almeno lo facessero contro la droga e non sempre con cose stupide tipo i videogiochi. è naturale che ...
Excerpt: No nos vamos a engañar: Rule of Rose es un juego extraño. No sólo ha sido protagonista de mil y una polémicas debido a su contenido, sino que ha llegado a ser prohibido en países como Inglaterra (irónicamente, ya que la historia se desarrolla allí), Australia e Italia. Todo esto ha provocado que encontrar esta joyita jugable del 2006 se convierta en una odisea. La cuestión es, ¿qué tiene Rule of Rose?
Pros: Historia fascinante, originalidad .
Cons: Control; juego poco común y, por tanto, caro y algo difícil de conseguir .
