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: Just completed the game on easy level at the weekend, and have since "clocked" it twice more. The more you play it (and get used to the controls, routes, etc), the more you begin to appreciate the game for it's design, graphics, and sheer artistry. I intend to go back and try the normal level, as well as all the other scenarios and sub-missions. Highly recommended!
Summary: One, if not the, most, beautiful games I have ever played [no joke]The storyline flows seemlessly in with the game and is a joy to watch and the art direction is prohaps the best i've ever seen, allmost dream-like on some stages.It may look like a simple shoot'up but get into it and your find there loads to unlock with continued playing
Summary: There seems to be a current trend amongst videogame companies - resurrect old brands for the new generation. Panzer Dragon is one of those franchises. Panzer Dragoon and Panzer Dragoon II Zwei, along with RPG spin-off Panzer Dragoon Saga, are regarded as the Saturn's finest hour. Sega's Team Andromeda managed to wirng every last drop out of a processor that was intended for 2D, in order to create a mangificent 3D on-rails shooter.
One of the best games i have played in quite some time!

Summary: Being a fan of the Panzer Dragoon series before, i can say that i was looking forward to the game for quite some time. I was a tiny bit dissapointed that the game was going for the on-rails approach that inhabited Panzer Dragoon's 1 and 2 as opposed to the RPG version of Panzer Dragoon Saga, but 10 minutes into the game i can totally say that i had no reason to be dissapointed.
Summary: Ages back, when i owned a Sega Saturn, i was amazed by a game, called Panzer Dragoon. It was a rail based game, where u blew things out of the sky...and that was basically it. It held its own, and spawn a sequal, which im my opinon was so much better. Near the end of the Sega Saturns life, a RPG version was released, and was a huge epic game...simple a masterpiece. Panzer Dragoon Orta, is a follow on from the first 2 games, rail based, as in the screen cares you.
Panzer Dragoon Orta - best Xbox release so far this year!!!

Summary: Panzer Dragoon Orta (PDO) is superb. When you run the game for the first time you will be amazed. Firstly the graphics are superb. They're on a par if not better than Splinter Cell, but in a different way, bright and colourful instead of dark and moody. The different dragon forms are especially well implemented. The small videos inbetween each level look absolutely amazing. Just watch the opening movie for a taste of the supremacy of this game above other titles.
Summary: Panzer Dragoon Orta is a fantastic game in its own right that deserves to be given a go by every Xbox owner. Admittedly you will probably have to play through the Tutorial first but once thats done with you will get the grips with the controls and will start to appreciate the subtlety of the game. The game has 10 missions with an onslaught of extra side missions, each with beautiful level design.
Summary: if you know what panzer dragoon is then your probably a fan from the games released on the sega satern.this new install ment in the series is a roller coaster ride of finger numming action and spectacular visuals that really shows the power of xbox.the basics are still the same you ride on a dragon while you control a 360 deg view of the surroundings trying to keep the countless numbers of enemies at bay.your dragon has 3 different forms which you can morph into each...
Summary: If you long for a slice of gaming like they used to serve up in the good old days, then this is the game for you! An "on-rails" shooter that brings back memories of great titles like Space Harrier and the original Panzer Dragoon, whilst at the same time bringing the gameplay bang up to date. The graphics are superb, with some simply gorgeous backgrounds, and the level design is in places very good, in other places jaw-droppingly good.
