There is SOOO much to do in this game! There are so many things that you can do in this game it's hard not to stray from the story line! (although the story line is fantastic) Even though your characters will give you helpful tips like, "Are you sure this is the right direction?" you can still go the other way to do something else that you feel like doing. Whether it's collecting treasure, seeking out some bountys, levelling up or finding a new outfit. The options are abundant and you wont ever get bored. Some times you have to clime a tedious tower or two but the way up is filled with things to find and fight. There are so many ways to level up different things. You can get exp for your main weapon and subweapon, then once that is to its max level you can "Master" it just by fighting with it and it will gain different perks like fire resistance and what not. As i said before; there is so much to do in this game you can't get bored. Such a fun game.
When I first picked up Rogue Galaxy, I was a little unsure about the whole "Space Pirate" thing, but when I began to play, I immediately noticed the amazing graphics this game has, not to mention the awesome gameplay (Which, unlike other RPG's, is a real-time battle game). The storyline was great in the beginning although you may have second opinions, and if you do, the storyline gets a whole lot more interesting. You are a boy named Jaster Rogue, who has his heart set on exploring the galaxy, and when you are accidently mistaken for a legendary hero, you are recruited into a gang of space pirates where you can finally experience your dream. I don't want to spoil any good parts of the game so I'll leave it at that. Finally, this game has amazing voice acting, which is hard to find in most RPG's.Overall, this is a great game, so if you are an RPG fan, or you just want a great game, then get this.
Level 5 does it again another great RPG!
Rogue Galaxy is an Action RPG, maybe one of the best action rpg's around. The game's story is very good, Jaster is your main character and least annoying like some other main characters like Ethan from PSU. Jaster is a slave and whats to become a space pirate... Alot of people say this game copied Star Wars... come on now I don't think Rogue Galaxy copied Star Wars if you ask me PSU is close to Star Wars. Anyways the gameplay is slick, nice menus too. And the AI is not stupid. They will call you if they want to be healed or use cool attacks. The music is nice the voice acting is very good they are strong and well played out too. The graphics are cel-shaded one of the best along with Dragon Quest 8. Some slow downs but not as much... there is no loading times when you explore the huge place of Rogue Galaxy. There are many things to do in this game make a better weapon, hunt the monsters or hunt the big bosses to gain hefty points. This game is well over 100 hours so grab a 2 liter, popcorn and have a great time playing.
Best Game Ever........For the playstation 2
Rouge Galaxy is the best possible game ever for the PlayStation 2. it gives gamers a first look at great, I only gave it 9 because the PlayStation 3 graphics and Xbox 360 graphics are better. The challenge is great for a PlayStation or even other console games. It all goes on increasing your arsenal of special moves, which take you a long way. The controls are perfect and you have no difficulty controlling the many characters in the game. The only real problem in Rouge Galaxy is the interface because the camera angle sometimes really screws up. The sound is really good but the songs can get a little repetitive. But the characterization is amazing, the game goes for a long time (over a 100 hours of game play!) and the storyline functions very easily. This game overall is really the best game 4 the PlayStation 2. Thats because Rouge galaxy gives us a new feel for a game console. Sort of like EndWar. Only in R.G, it gives us a unique RPG feeling, which may possibly be the clostest to a real online RPG game that the PS2 ever got to.
A great game that fell under the radar
I happened onto this game when I was at the video store. I had never heard of it but it caught my eye. I later went on to buy this game after renting it, it has one of the best stories of any rpg I've played in a while. The cutscenes are nice to look at and the developers made it so transitioning from location to location (e.g. entering a house, opening doors, etc) required no load time which I really liked. Each main character is unique in their abilities and how they play and have very diverse personalities. Gameplay is solid and there is a bonus game within the game where you battle bugs called Insectors which is a lot of fun. There is a lot to do in this game and many places to go: Desert Planet Rosa, Mariglenn, Ghost Ship, and so on. This is truly one of the best games you've probably never heard of definitely worth checking out
when i first bought this game it was my first rpg. and after putting 200 hrs in it is my favorite game ever. i found the gameplay to be very enjoyable and the graphics are very good for the ps2. the story is also pretty good but took a while to really take off. the voice acting is also really good. besides from the story line there are a lot of side quests to do from weapon synthesis to an addicting bug fighting competition. if you are debating on getting this game just get it as it is really cheap now.
The Best I Have Ever Played on the PS2
This game is one of the best I have played on the PS2 so far. It blows any of the games I have ever played on it into the abyss. In general, it starts off looking like an anime, but as the game progresses, it looks more like a Sony-take on Final Fantasy X. Many people will be entertained with the storyline and the gameplay. I know I did when I first played it. For an instant fact, this is one of the games that people will add into their game collection and will be marked as an "Instant Classic." Many people will even call it "The Game of the Year." I call it the Game of the Millenium. In short, the storyline is fantastic and the voice acting is believable. The gameplay within itself is fun and easy to control and fun to play. I say, buy it and keep it so your grandkids can play it -LevyTheAmishMan-
A new experience
As stated in the title, Rogue Galaxy was a completely new experience for me. What I found most satisfying was the fact that there were no loading times for the battle and for a new map/screen/area/you get my point, right? I really liked the story and plot as well. It was really one of those stories can easily get you hooked (well, for me it was). Overall, I think this game was a mix of all of the popular key elements needed to make a good rpg.
This is my first LEVEL 5 game & I LOVE it. it is the masterpiece of playstation 2 as Ledgend of the Dragoon was to Playstation1. this has such a deep storyline with realistic characters realtime commands, traveling, battle style, clthing & weapons equiped appear in movie for SPECIAL momments & very special must see alternative endings!!!
This is an Amazing RPG and a great overall game
This game is great not only is the story line fresh throughout the whole game but you also are able to level your characters up, wepons, customize your characters to a point, upgrade skills, and a bit more. It also gives a great tutorial for the game, gives you tons of quests and side quests took me about 120+ hours to beat everything. I say that because not only do you have the same story and side quests but then a mini game inside the game that deals with instectors who you capture in game and level them up and combine them to make cooler bugs sadly though the parents die during the process. SO if you love RPG and tons of hours trying to beat everything this is the game for you! The graphic are good not great but does that really matter? NO because everything else makes up for it!!!!
