Summoner for PlayStation 2

scream4bruce, Dooyoo
3 November 2007
  • Excerpt: On Joseph's hand is the mark of the Summoner. As a child he had watched as the powers he had unleashed destroyed his village, killing those he loved. In the years to come he had not been able to forget, but when Orenian armies come to invade, he must confront the prophecy he was born to fulfill. The world of Summoner is huge. Unfortunately the Map for referring to is not too detailed, so you'll have to remember faces and places.

Making Its Mark

28 October 2007
  • Excerpt: "...born to fulfill. The world of Summoner is huge. Unfortunately the Map for referring to is not too detailed, so you'll have to remember faces and places. There are plenty of NPCs to talk with, who make the world of Summoner an immersive one - luckily it is made obvious who has something important to say. However, the game is let down by a lack of characterisation. For an early PlayStation 2 game, Summoner does not look bad. Draw distance is not ...
  • Pros: Huge maps to explore in an immersive world, solid RPG elements
  • Cons: Long loading times, stuttery frame rate

Some Fun

  • Excerpt: "...lookout for new things. Seeing Summoner on offer in a store near me attracted my interest instantly. RPGs are one of my favourite types of game, mostly because they deliver so much play time for the money you pay for them, but also because there's always loads to explore and the storylines can be as over the top as they like without ever being ridiculous. ----------- Storyline ----------- Joseph is a lowly farmer from the village of Masad. ...
  • Pros: Interesting new game ideas, good overall enjoyment
  • Cons: Linear storyline, not very challenging

Summoner 2 - More of a hack and slash than RPG!

clownfoot, Ciao
31 March 2004
  • Excerpt: "...makers of the game promote Summoner 2 as a Role Playing Adventure, it comes across as more of a hack and slash adventure, containing a few simple puzzles. This is no bad thing - if anything the game is a superior hack and slash adventure. The combat system is a little more developed than similar themed games (such as Dark Alliance) meaning the player will develop different strategies for defeating enemies rather than the skilless button bashing ...
  • Pros: Good combat/control system, detailed plot, good graphics !
  • Cons: Not really an RPG, gameplay too linear, long loading times !

I didn't think much of this game

10 July 2002
  • Excerpt: "When i first read about this game in a PS2 magazine, i was pretty impressed with what they had to tell me. Monsters could be raised to help fight for you, A good storyline and it was the first 'proper' (in my opinion) RPG to be coming out. From reading this PS2 review, i was informed beforehand of the poor quality graphics which i was prepared to put up with. However, when i began playing the game, i found it irritating at the large settings and ...
  • Pros: Fighting element of the game
