  • Excerpt: Something terrible has happened at a quaint little bar called Fate. Ninja soldiers from the evil Mikado Group have kidnapped a young girl named Dominique. It is up to three unlikely heroes to come to her rescue and right the wrong. So begins a shallow story to an even weaker game.

  • Summary: If you want something to show off the power of your Playstation 2, but not give you at least 30 minutes of gameplay. This is the game for you. Otherwise, save your 49.00 dollars for something with a little more substance.
  • Pros: Best visuals I've ever laid my eyes on., Great Storyline, Audio and dialogue are awesome.
  • Cons: Shorter than Rave's sex life., Button Masher, Horrible Camera Angles

  • Excerpt: Square's The Bouncer is a case of great visuals but flawed gameplay. Touted as an "Action Movie", the intention of the Bouncer is to be a fighter/brawler like Streets of Rage. Telling the story of three Bouncers (Sion, Kou and Volt) who go to rescue a captured girlfriend from the evil corporation Mikado. A lot of the backstory of the characters is hinted at and more is revealed each time the player goes through.
  • Pros: Beautiful FMV and in-game graphics, Good use of the analog controls, Excellent sound
  • Cons: Way too short, Seriously needs a continue option, Fight segments are not that much of the game

  • Conclusion: The Bouncer certainly doesn’t let you forget that there’s a lot of plot because every couple of minutes that action stops and it’s time for three or so minutes of CG cutscenes. Yeah, it looks gorgeous and all, but what it boils down to is making the game way too halted. If the cutscenes could be distributed differently, or at least the action sequences were longer, it would have made the whole game a lot more enjoyable, but as it stands the distribution of action and...

  • Excerpt: Squaresoft and I have not had a peaceful relationship. The reason is two words: Final Fantasy. I'm always asked why I hate this series so much, and I explain every reason. Maybe it was because I find that being hit by random encounters every step is a complete pain. Or then again, maybe I hate having to sit through countless scenes of poorly animated FMV with mute, dorky-looking characters with hands bigger than their faces (we all know what THAT means, right Zidane?

  • Excerpt: Endlessly beautiful and pulled off with cinematic flair, The Bouncer is a perfect example of the PlayStation 2's power, but can it hold up as a real game? Okay, I'll just come out and say it. The Bouncer is quite possibly the prettiest game I've ever seen, and almost certainly the most amazing thing out on the PlayStation 2 - at least visually.
