    The Bouncer shows how ambitious Square can be, but it still falls short and ends up being a playthrough with no rewards.

    Nice side project for Square, but could of had a lot more to it

    Rated on October 22, 2004 by led282

    The Bouncer is a interesting title because it was developed by Square, a company known for its role-playing games. This game plays similar to the style of a Final Fight or Double Dragon, just set in ...

    "All graphics, no game underneath."

    Rated on January 18, 2005 by Jedite1

    The Bouncer is all about showing off the PS2's graphics capability. All great graphics, but, there's not much of a game underneath all the grahics and the FMV's. The Bouncer is a very short beat 'em u...
