Summoner - The BEST RPG I have ever played

20 July 2009
  • Excerpt: This has got to be the ultimate role play game. You can customise your character, explore a whole world and has a very in depth story line. The gameplay does take getting used to but the game could last for hours, and has two endings. What I like about this game is the storyline (it could be a film) and the quests. The quests are varied and interesting to play. I also like the fact that levelling and skill building is not the focus of the game, as in many rpgs.
  • Pros: In depth storyline, side - quests, party, large world, surprising twists and turns, and so much more
  • Cons: Poor graphics

Summoner for PlayStation 2

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to computer games, quite frankly, I've seen it all. I'm not the biggest gamer in the world, but I like every genre and so I've had a taste of pretty much everything. So understandably I'm always on the lookout for new things. Seeing Summoner on offer in a store near me attracted my interest instantly.
  • 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: Whilst the 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 flaw of many...
  • 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.
  • Pros: Fighting element of the game
  • Cons: complicated storyline, poor graphics, long loading times
