An awkward dungeon management game, with walls you can't dig out, rooms you build but don't know how much of or what size, and an interface that could only be inspired by a 1980s DOS game.

Absolutely not recommended.

Be a gang member, run around in a sandbox world and shoot stuff, I guess.

It's alright.

  • Note that the original Saints Row - (2006 game) was only released for the Xbox 360.

Laser things, move things, push things and find your way through semi-puzzle stuff.

With an art style (and opening sequences) reminiscent of Borderlands and gameplay reminiscent of Okami, this game has a very strong initial impression on me.

Not open-world, and definitely "on rails", but it does give a lot of power to the user as to how to fart around to progress.

While overall good, the controls are wonky and cliffs are obnoxious. There should be no falling off mechanic and the game should instead dangle the player for a moment and never let them fall.

A MMO whose defining qualities are its maturity, user base and low system-requirements.

Recently focusing entirely on endgame, to the detriment of all earlier content. Instead of improving the game in measurable ways, its developers use desperate psychology to string along its user base. DO NOT PLAY unless you're already playing. Then DO NOT STOP.

Once anything comes along that's decent, haul ass and bring everyone with you. Consider, for example, Guild Wars 2.

This got posted here instead of mobygames because they own comments after they are posted. No thanks, I write for me or for free.

Okami is a PS/2 game.  It's an action/adventure type game, with an expansive world to explore, a huge set of skills, a lot of things to do .. and is just generally fun.

A tactics game so good it's worth buying a PlayStation 2 for.
