    I felt connected to this game in the sense that it pulls you in like a good book.I would like more like it.

    I felt connected to this game in the sense that it pulls you in like a good book. I think there should be more games like this. I believe that the creator was trying to show that by trying you can achieve you goals. If t... Read Full Review

    A fun, immersive RPG that rises above many

    I picked up Summon Night: Swordcraft Story, without actually knowing what it was, and I don't think I've ever been so glad buying a game from chance. This game is very enjoyable. I'm going to say right now that I would r... Read Full Review

    Despite a small world, useless magic, and short length, this is a fun RPG with a great story genre fans will enjoy.

    This is a cute little action RPG that centers around a young craftknight aspiring to be a hero and craftlord like his/her father. The first half of the game is mostly wandering through a labyrinth fighting monsters in a ... Read Full Review

    Something that will remind you of Crono Trigger!

    Remember when RPGs were fun with stilled battles and waiting commands? If you answered yes than you got to be living in a cave. Summon Night is a cooky fun RPG that makes Tales of Phantasia's battle system work. The stor... Read Full Review

    Well... it's something quite new at least

    Making your own weapons and then using them is an interesting idea, but the novelty factor quickly wears off and you'll find yourself stuck in a repetitive dungeon crawler. The story however is solid and can be played th... Read Full Review

    One of 2006's biggest sleeper hits!

    Gameplay: Summon Night is an RPG that uses a real-time combat system similar to games like Tales of Phantasia. You'll spend the majority of the game either reading dialogue or traversing through floor after floor of du... Read Full Review

    7.4? It may be short but this game is great!

    So the game starts off where you choose you gender (typical right?) and then you find out about your character. The strange part to me is he is a craft Knight apprentice but he doesn't know anyone. No other apprentices... Read Full Review
