  • Review Score:8.5

    It's a shame how unnoticed such a great game went and it's even more surprising that it's from the popular Square Enix.

    A long while ago, I had heard about this game and while I thought it looked interesting, I never picked it up until recently. I wish I would've picked it up before. It's an excellent game and it's shocking how little rec... Read Full Review

    This game simply attempted to copy 2 different solid franchises, but failed to capture the simple magic of either. The flight portion is decent,due to the freedom of backtracking. Unlike panzer Dragoon this gets boring a... Read Full Review

    Although repetetive, this is still a pretty good game. I enjoyed playing it a lot.

    Drakengard for the PS2 is a really good game...for a while. When you first start playing, you just kill people with a sword, and that's basically what you do the entire game. You do get the help of a dragon though, and... Read Full Review

    Square's try on the Action RPG genre, not bad, but not good either. a good start though.

    Over 60 weapons to collect and level up, no bonus bosses to slay except for the fact of multiple endings to see and collect. There's a lot of CGI which is pretty much typical of a Square game, and they're pretty top notc... Read Full Review

    I was really looking forward to this game so I think I built it up a bit too much and just got disappointed. All in all it's a fun ride. If you like insane level up RPGs this will be fun for you. I was disappointed ... Read Full Review

    drakengard may be one of the most bizarre games i've ever played. The plot is dark, moody, and just plain depressing. However, thats not to say its a bad game. One thing you'll notice is how horrendously bland the gra... Read Full Review

    Drakengard is that sort of game that you should have played.

    Drakengard is that sort of game that you should have played. It’s ok, but nothing more. The main purpose is cutting your enemies into pieces. That’s cool for the first ten minutes, but then it stops. But what makes dra... Read Full Review

    Beautiful Story, Fun Game, Excellent buy

    An enigmatic and dark story, a nameless dragon, a silent hero, an envious knight, a possessed girl, this is only a piece of the list of things that make DRAKENGARD the perfect game. The story begins with Caim, a young kn... Read Full Review
