Summary: You Can Always tell when a game is the first made for a system cause it doesn't push the system to it's graphical limits and summoner does just that block y characters and stalled frame rates make the great concept in this game seem sub par.
Summary: I loved this game. Initially the graphics disappointed me but the game is heavy on mood and story and that is what makes a good RPG. RPGs are meant to have a certain length to them and this one delivers in spades. By the end you really feel as if you have taken an epic journey. It makes me wonder how much better games will be down the road when the technology catches up with the storylines and produces games that are as visually attractive as they are imaginative.
Summary: I thought this game was great, for the same reasons that other reviewers hated it. I'm a father now, mid thirties, and frankly, I'm too old to judge a game by dazzling graphics. I don't care if this PS2 game has graphics that are at a PS1 level of quality. Although I must admit, the main character does look a bit like a corpse. :) So other reviewers can complain about dated graphics, but it doesn't bother me.
Summary: Summoner is a game that you will either love or hate within the first 6 hours or so. It really depends on what you look for in an RPG. If you need a good battle system and flashy graphics, you won't find that here, but you can expect to find some of the best and biggest level design around. The places you explore are beautiful and interesting but not graphically stunning.
Summary: This game was awesome and can't wait for the sequel if the sequel was as good as this then I would definetly buy the graphics are pretty good. Honestly this game is awesome you should buy it and the fighting is really cool you can like duck when beign hit and control who to hit. Overall this is an incredible I have seen some previews for the sequel and it just looks phenominal.
Summary: it was a good game overall i was a little disapointed in the play.. to many cut fight sceens during your walk from city to city...the characters were good but i felt the graphics could of been a little more in depth,especially for the p.s.2 system...it will be interesting to see the second game in the series..hopefully they can make the play more detailed and clear up some of the graphics..
Summary: The summoner is a good game with horrible graphics and a cool battle system. Graphics:5/10. The graphics are pretty ... [bad] but people forget that this IS a RPG. The graphics aren't exactly going to be devil may cry. Sound:5/10. There's extremely little voice acting and everything else is just average. Control:8/10. Nice, easy controls. Story:6/10: An average story. Nothing special nothing bad. Cinames:4/10: Suuuurrrreeeee..... replay:5/10. I suppose. Characters:4/10.

Summary: "Yes," if: -- you enjoy long, deep RPGs with a lot of side quests: you get your first side-quest during the tutorial section, and most of the side quests lead to unique acquisitions or plot twists that add dimension to the story. Additionally, the game tracks the quests for you in a journal--no more jotting down notes about what you have to do next.
Summary: Summoner is not without its faults, but I fell in love with this game nevertheless! The characters are well developed, the storyline is complex and involving. Lots of political and religious intrigue make for plenty of twists and turns. Within the first hour of the game I had about 7 side quests! This game isn't half as linear as most RPGs out there, which is quite refreshing. I didn't always know what to do and had to figure it out myself....
Summary: Being one of the first RPG's for the PS2 console, you have to give the authors, Voalition, credit for making this game. Probably not having a full concept of the powers that the PS2 console has, they have done a pretty good job with the game. Sure, the characters could've been done a little better but the environments are eye catching. Being stationed in Korea, we don't have a Blockbuster or any other place to rent video games.
