Rengoku: The Tower of Purgatory

Playstation Illustrated
20 September 2006
  • Excerpt: I have been catching up lately on all the “Buffy the Vampire” episodes I missed out on in the past, and something about Rengoku: The Tower of Purgatory struck me as familiar. Remember that bad guy in “Buffy” who was built out of all these random parts from different demons? Adam? Season 4? Well, when I saw that the main character in Rengoku is a cyborg named A.D.A.M. who can attach pieces to himself from the enemies he fights, I was like (in best Keanu voice), “Whoa!

  • Excerpt: I'm not sure what Rengoku means exactly, but "tower of purgatory" is a reference to the game's main location. Players control an android named Gram, who, after killing thousands of human beings for his unknown masters, decides to seek out the reason for his existence by scaling a 10-story tower. The tower is filled with other androids, which Gram has to defeat on his way to the top.

Rengoku: The Tower of Purgatory

  • Conclusion: There’s a multiplayer section of the game that is used primarily for trading weapons amongst friends. As already discussed this isn’t needed at all so why even bother going into it again. Players can even battle one another but since there’s no strategy in doing so, again, what’s the point? It’s highly doubtful that anyone will be playing through Rengoku that many times. The game is too flawed for that.

  • Excerpt: Annoncé de longue date, Rengoku : The Tower of Purgatory se décide enfin à montrer le bout de ses pixels sur PSP. Inutile de le nier, si vous lisez ces lignes c'est que vous faites sans doute partie des joueurs qui attendaient beaucoup de ce titre, et il faut reconnaître que les premiers éléments auguraient du meilleur. A présent que le soft est entre nos mains, il va bien falloir admettre que le potentiel de Rengoku est bien inférieur à ce que l'on attendait.

  • Conclusion: Rengoku : The Tower of Purgatory est donc une énorme déception. Diablement répétitif et souffrant d’un gameplay bâclé, le titre ne parvient à convaincre dans aucun domaine. Le principe de customisation du personnage aurait pu être très intéressant si le concept avait été plus poussé. Un jeu à éviter ou à se procurer en occasion si vous êtes vraiment fans du genre.
