Summary: i really love this game and the story. im looking for the older panzer dragoon games but this is is far good from the others i heard but i hated how the dragon dies at the end and the girl alone again but i was happy when i saw a small/baby dragon pop out of no where. if you love japnese games then try this one and i think you would love it. it work on my xbox 360 so im happy about it.
Summary: This is a terrific game for the original Xbox. It has superb graphics, superb gameplay and lots of challenging levels. There is PLENTY of stuff to unlock making it more fun to play through. The game is pretty difficult, but playing the game on 'easy' setting is best for beginners. This game is fantastic for Sega fans. NOTE: The original 'Panzer Dragoon' game for the Sega Saturn is unlockable in this game! All you have to do is beat the game on any difficulty.
Summary: i remember playing the earlier game on the sega saturn,i found it ok and pretty fun to play.but the xbox version seems to be much harder than what i remember it to be;or it could be simply because i havent played it for a long time. controls are pretty much the same. i like how youre able to switch between the 3 modes,it allows for more flexibility depending on your current situation.
Excerpt: There is not too much of a story behind Panzer Dragoon Orta for the XBox. There is an introduction which sets up the game but it's still not that clear what the story actually is. You start off in a tower with a girl named Orta, who has been locked up because of an empire that is unsure and afraid of her powers that could destroy them. When they were coming to kill Orta off, a mysterious dragon comes and rescues Orta, and the game starts off. And that's about it...
Summary: One of the best rail shooters I have played, or up to level 3 anyway. If you are planning to buy this for the Xbox360, then the PAL version of the game will crash after level 3. No fix has been released by Microsoft even though they state this game as backward compatible with Xbox360. This problem has been noted on several internet forums so it is not an isolated case.
Own an XBox?like shooters?get this. If you liked the Saturn games, you will be in heaven.

Excerpt: On Sega's underselling Saturn console, few games that appeared came out with all that great reputations. While the Virtua Fighter games were great, people played them to death in the arcades, same goes for Capcom's fighters. People were too busy gushing over FIFA to notice that Sega's own Worldwide Soccer series was absurdly good, but along with Nights into Dreams, the Panzer Dragoon games gave Saturn owners something to be proud of, something to defiantly wave two...
Summary: The legacy of Sega's last ever console continues on Microsoft's little baby, the Xbox. An old game now, this little gem can probably be picked up in your local Gamestation for under a tenner. The structure of the game is unashamedly old school, the 'on-rails' shooter brought up to date in full 3D glory ... flying through level by level until you reach the 'uberboss' at the end of each stage. The game I could liken this most to is another Sega oldie, Afterburner II.
Summary: Beautiful and clicky? I first saw PDO in a shop display case and wondered why I was playing Rogue Squadron on my Gamecube. No I still didnt know the maths behind nuclear reactors and I hadnt even pointed a digital camcorder in anger. Perhaps the best thing to suggest to anyone thinking of buying this game is go buy a Dreamcast and do the homework. Seriously!
Summary: I'll admit I don't know anything about the Panzer Dragoon series... I'll also admit I only bought this game cause it was cheap. I'll also admit, I was really impressed. The graphics are stunning, the gameplay enjoyable, and a plot which is a cut above most. Through both the game and the bonus material, its incredably easy to get immersed into the Panzer Dragoon world. What impressed me the most was that its rare you realise it is a rail shooter.
