What Gamespot Users have to say about Summoner

  • Review Score:4.4

    Summoner is a mediocre dungeon-crawling RPG.

    Summoner is a boring game. The battle system was boring because for one it was slow, you really don't do much with it and the hit ratio slowed everything down. I haven't played a game with loading times this bad since ... Read Full Review

    Takes some time to get into it but is a solid and rounded rpg suitable for everyone

    When i first picked this game up around a year ago at a clearance sale for a tenner i was dubious as to how good this game would be. I took it home that day and played for around an hour, immediately i was impressed by t... Read Full Review

    A worth role-palying-game !!!

    Summoner is a good game and it brings a nice history and a fun play... The unique mistake is the impossibility to play in a cooperative mode as Champions of Norrath and Dark Alliance !!! I haven´t played summoner 2, but ... Read Full Review

    Really immersive plot. You have to enjoy reading A LOT to play the game, since it's presented through tons of dialog.

    A Summoner possesses a power greater than magic. With rings of channeling, one can call forth elementals, demons and golems. Summoners are looked upon as saviors but also feared as destroyers. The chosen ones bear a mark... Read Full Review

    Classic Game

    This was a great game for the upstart PS2. The soundtrack was incredible. But the graphics were dull, even when the game first came out. But it was overshadowed by a compelling and surprising story, great gameplay, new b... Read Full Review

    Nice concept

    This games concept really appealed to me. You play as Joseph who discovers that he has the ability to summon creatures with the help of special summoning rings. He summons a demon one day as a young boy and it destroys... Read Full Review

    Could Have Been So Much Better

    I bought this game as a launch title when the PS 2 came out and was really impressed with the thought that went into the game. There's a lot here to like, but unfortunately, there's also a lot here to dislike. Gett... Read Full Review

    Sure this game may have come out in 2001, and the graphics may be shoddy but this is still one of the best games ever

    To me this is one of the best games ever released, as I mentioned, the graphics may not be the best and it is nine years old, but looking at it from a gameplay and storyline perspective, it has to be one of the best game... Read Full Review
