Excerpt: Nippon Ichi has carved out a niche for itself with its library of off-beat strategy games. While games like Disgaea have usually stood out as "odd" games - at least when compared to other games - Soul Nomad and the World Eaters goes a little further, making it one of Nippon Ichi's more unique experiences. Visually, Soul Nomad looks like any of Nippon Ichi's other games.
Summary: Soul Nomad is a strategy RPG that combines the infamous grid-based strategy engine of Disgaea with the deep game play of a traditional style RPG for a new and unique experience. Crime apparently pays well as players are encouraged to steal, abduct, and kick villagers in the butt to get what you want.
Conclusion: is a lively, addictive, and entertaining strat-RPG with a twist. The game's unique combat system provides a refreshing change to the genre with a colorful storyline. If you like strat-RPGs, then "Soul Nomad" is a must. The game comes recommended.
Conclusion: Soul Nomad & The World Eaters is a welcome addition to the RPG realm and for PS2 owners looking for some quality titles for the aging console. Whether a newcomer or a season veteran, this game is full of depth; via customization, that will please both sides through creating a unique army. Fans of RPG games, especially strategy RPG nuts, will find lots of value within Soul Nomad and will always find a reason to come back for more.
Excerpt: It was bound to happen eventually. With Disgaea having had free run of the place, of course it’s going to end up finding some hapless SNES game to knock up. Sure, Ogre Battle might have stood a chance, but once one stares into those deep, gorgeous eyes, one can’t help but be smitten. Eventually they got married (immediately after this , no less), and had a child. This, what some may refer to as “unholy union,” has been christened Soul Nomad and the World Eaters .
Excerpt: Gig. That’s pretty much all that needs to be said when someone speaks about Soul Nomad & the World Eaters (which we will call Soul Nomad from now on, as I’m kind of stuck for time, plus I’m now ruler of the world! Mwahaha! Bow down to my might!) Soul Nomad is one of those characters that just make the game what it is. Without him it would be one of those usual “protect the world” stories, and we’ve had plenty of them.
