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: 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: This game is a mix between Squaresoft's fighting system used in Ehrgeiz, today's best Cinematic's technoligies, and the great storyline quality from Final Fantasy. This game is definatly worth getting. It has a great replay value. A must for all PS2 owners.
Summary: This game is a blast! Everybody who's played it knows the storyline so i'll skip that. The verses mode rocks with four players and there are TONS of characters. The bouncer is more of a playable movie than an RPG. You can twist up the story a ton by play as different characters for every fight. And the real fun fun of the game is getting your best character up to the "S" level so you can kick your friends butts.
Summary: In my opinion, this game isn't bad at all, BUT, it depends what kind of game you want to play. Best graphics I've seen in a game, although Shenmue was supposed to have good graphics too. Voiceovers can be very dramatic which is a good thing. Usual Squaresoft type of story line (Save the world). It's not too bad, but it is very short. The real game lies in its multiplayer capabilities.
Summary: For many of us, there isn't a whole lot of time in our lives to spend playing a console game. Games like Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, or Legend of Zelda are fantastic, no doubt giving us many many hours of wonderful entertainment...but for those who grow bored easily, sometime after 40 hours on the first disk tends to make us a little hesitant to finish the whole game.
Summary: This game could be better but it doesn't have to be for five stars. You can definitly beat this game within an hour but that's only one time. You'd have to beat it three times for each characters story and seven times for the full story to come together. The controls are easy to use no matter how new to video games you are. The game also has an rpg feel as you get battle points to raise your ability points.
Summary: This game could have been a lot better. The graphics are tite and stuff but u cant really interact with the backgrounds. ITs just there fo sho, and the story is pretty lame also. Most of the game is the cut scenes. Ive been playin this game for about 3-4 hours and im done beatin the game with all 3 players. The controls and move are basic and simple and the game is pretty simple too.
