This review is from: Panzer Dragoon Orta (Video Game)
Ages back, when i owned a Sega Saturn, i was amazed by a game, called Panzer Dragoon. It was a rail based game, where u blew things out of the sky...and that was basically it. It held its own, and spawn a sequal, which im my opinon was so much better. Near the end of the Sega Saturns life, a RPG version was released, and was a huge epic game...simple a masterpiece.
Panzer Dragoon Orta, is a follow on from the first 2 games, rail based, as in the screen cares you. It takes you through 10 Huge levels, and like most sega games, entails a ranking system, to keep u wanting to go back for more.
Like the other Panzer games, it features a pandora box, full of extra and sub games. Which you open up as you meet critera through the game. To be honest, My jaw has dropped for the amount that is actually openable, and even more appears through the game.
The game, like most sequals trys to do what the previous did, then add more to it. This game not only does it, but makes the previous 2 games, look naff. Not only does the game carry its game type well, it then adds a new feature. Dragoon morthing, this is were you have the ability to morth into other dragooons, to suit your strategy. The morth covers 3 dragoon types. normal, power, boost. Normal is, the dragoon, which as got the lot, but not great. Power is heavliy armed, but shows no speed thus very slow. Boost is more speed based, yet show very little in weaponary. Once you have learnt these dragoons, you can pull of some brilliant moves, and kills, as well as looking good for bystanders. Also has you improve, and the more kills you do; more power ups, appear, meaning you can evolve each dragoon to suit your play.
Graphically i havent seen a game which looks this good. You can see alot of work as gone into this game. I promise you, your draw will drop for the visuals, they are simply stunning. Gameplay wise, like most game from sega origin, the ranking and extras will keep you coming. Trying to master this game is another story!.
I am not disapointed with this game at all, and the game is well worth the money. I will suggest this to all xbox gamers, this is simply a masterpiece.
