lets watch the bouncer

Kurt C. Decker, Amazon

  • 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.

What do you want to do?

  • Summary: If You want to watch a movie, go to blockbuster, or buy this game. If you want to play a game, then get something else. This is not a game it is a movie. You get to play the parts of the movie that involve fighting. This game..er Movie is short, very short. The graphics are mind blowing, we expect nothing less from Square. This is the reason to get Final Fantasy X instead.

Doesn't So Much Bounce As Fall Flat On Its Face

  • Excerpt: "*A review of The Bouncer based primarily on the single-player experience.* Sion's favourite brand of clothing may be Dog Street, but it's surprising there are no run-ins with the fashion police in this game. But, as the bar Fate would have it, it would be a long night for Sion, Kou and Volt, as these three bouncers set out to save their friend Dominique whom has been kidnapped by Mikado Special Forces. The rock-paper-scissors is weighted as such: ...
  • Pros: Decent graphics and animation, RPG elements, a fair fighting system
  • Cons: Sluggish controls and horrible camera, some embarassingly bad sections, short

The Bouncer bounced off me

  • Excerpt: "...than an interactive film. I bought the game and expected a damn good piece of game play but after about "6" (yes I said SIX) levels and three hours of FMV it's over! Then you play the game again, with a slight twist here n there, nothing too spectacular and far from compulsive to play again. The levels are NOT hard if you're good or experienced on tekken, but the graphics are a marvel. Take your pic on games but be weary of this one before you ...
  • Pros: It has a lot of detailed FMV's
  • Cons: There's not much gameplay

  • Excerpt: "...bad guys. Large characters, the ability to build up their attributes, new moves to learn, pitched battles, great movie sequences etc etc etc. Oh yes, it sure sounds good. Fact is though, it's rubbish. Many reviews in magazines and on Ciao have stated that this game has great graphics. The characters are large and detailed, the animation is good, use of colour and texture has been applied well and basically the graphics are good but then this is ...
  • Pros: Fallen bodies stay where they fell
  • Cons: Terrible gameplay, boring, slow .

  • Excerpt: "...that stood out from all the rest. The graphics where amazing and the characters looked pretty cool but when I'd looked in the playstation magazine all I saw where bad reviews. Finally I made my choice and got this game out. The game is all about three bouncers (Sion, Kou and Volt) who work in a bar called 'Fate'. They job is to throw out drunks, check for fake ID's and brake up fight to protect the bar! One day some bad guys brake into the bar ...
  • Pros: Good graphics, good while it lasts

SquareSoft bon en RPG, mauvais en Beat'em All

  • Summary: On attendait ce jeu avec impatience, or il s'est avéré être un crash total. Explications...... SquareSoft c'est quoi ? Une gigantesque firme du jeu vidéo spécialisée dans les RPG avec Final Fantasy, un Beat'em All mélageant RPG et action semblait prometteur de la part de ce géant nippon, mais, je ne sais pas s'ils ont manqué de temps ou de programmeurs, le jeu se révèle être un échec. Commençons par les points forts. Graphismes : C'est trèèèèèèèès beau !
  • Pros: Très beau
  • Cons: Trop court, combats peu interressants
