Summary: I hadn't played this game in over six years and so I started looking for it again so that I could play again. The one I bought was used but according to the seller it was in good condition. Not only did it arrive within like 3 days, but the disk was in great condition.
Summary: Okay, so the game is only a little longer than one hour. That i have to put it down for but only because its really fun! Ofcourse you can always play it again and again until you've completely leveled everyone up to their full potential and seen every different storlyline possible... which is what i did. The graphics are awsome, as expected from squaresoft. The character designs are also very nice to look at.
Shows Off the PS2's Graphics, but There's No Game Here

Summary: Boot-up of SquareSoft's The Bouncer shows that even a few short months after the Playstation 2 has become available, developers are making games that look great, meaning that even more great looking games are yet to come. Unfortunately, The Bouncer looks amazing, but that's mainly what you do in this "game" - look. The graphics, both foreground and background are completely amazing.
I'm sure glad I didn't consult the reviews on here

Summary: When I wanted to buy the Bouncer. I read every review everywhere else, and just knew I had to have it. This game rocks! I absoloutly love it! Smooth animation, great script and voice acting (Sion aside...). It's a classic Squaresoft gem. I hope it slowly becomes sleeper hit, and kicks the BUTTs of all the games people claim it can't. And can't forget the music. The game would be nothing without those guitar cranking tunes that just get you right into the fight.
Summary: squaresoft needs to stick to rpgs only. All you do is watch a movies, fight for 2 minutes, then watch a movie again, and then 45 minutes later the game is over. And the fighting sucks too, you just mash buttons and get double teamed. And you fight with two other guys, and if they kill enemies while you are not in control of them you dont get any experience.
Summary: And when I say short, I'm not even complaining. This game is awesome, and I think it's a shame everybody flames it like they do. Y'know, there is more to a game then just kicking some guys ... Graphics, story-and, agh! The dreaded word: MOVIE ELEMENTS, add to a very engaging story. Must be all the wrong people playing this game...although I doubt it.
Summary: My friend and I rented this game over vacation, thinking that it would be great. The graphics looked cool and the story sounded interesting. Yes these were both true, but I think we got 30 minutes of game play througout the whole game. The rest were movies. So now jockingly we say to each other, hey lets go watch the bouncer. It is fun to watch, but I wish that there was more playing time.
