Not in IGN's list of top 100 RPGs of all time.

They think this game is worse than Legend of dragoon... WTF...?

I'm at the beginning of Disc 4 now and I'm not digging this game. I don't see what all the fuss is about.

I can see why it's not on IGN's top 100

Re: Subject line - Are you sure? If so, that's pretty funny, considering that they put it in their Top 100 Games (period) of All Time: http://top100.ign.com/2007/ign_top_game_44.html

I expect the staff is getting younger, and a lot of them grew up on xbox and PS2, and have never even played a Saturn...

And larmes_du_h3ros, You just have terrible taste :) But seriously, If you are anything like me, It is difficult to enjoy a 15 year old game if playing it for the first time. It is tough to get the appropriate perspective.

To be honest, the sound and graphics are very good. I was expected the story to be more different and unique than it is because of all the reviews. This magical lore about the towers and ancient age isn't interesting.

Did you finish it yet? Everything becomes clear in the end. VERY clear.

Good grief, that's a terrible list. Forget the exclusion of Panzer Dragoon Saga (unbelievable as it is), how about the fact that just 18 RPG series account for over half the list! And the preference for RPGs from the last two generations is quite glaring. I realize the genre has made some strong advances over the last decade or so, but this is just ridiculous, especially when you look at individual examples - Grandia II instead of Grandia I makes my jaw drop. And since the list is so huge (seriously, a Top 50 is more than enough for any individual genre), this means pretty much every popular RPG from the past decade is on the list.

I actually stopped reading reviews at IGN a year ago because of how many of them made me say "What the heck?", but even so, the level of stupidity over there continues to amaze me.

I kind of agree with some of this. I love Panzer Dragoon 1 and 2 (bought both with my Saturn back in 97') and I finally played Saga just a month ago. However due to the longevity of hype, my expectations with the story did were not met. Also, the world map was very limited and I never felt like the world was very expansive to begin with, if anything it was as limited as the previous games...but they were on rails, so it's not a question. Everything was just so 'empty' with little to explore.

However, the battle system stole the show. This made me WANT to play. Typically with RPGs, I would roll my eyes with every few steps entering into a dull battle I did not want to engage. With Saga, It was actually fun to enter a battle, and the way the developers blended in classic Panzer Dragoon with RPG elements was perfect. So, in short gameplay wins, and this had excellent gameplay. In, the end that is what counts. What good is an epic story if the gameplay sucks... For me with Panzer Dragoon Saga, it was the opposite.

until you finish the game you can't say anything about the story. also play the other panzer dragoon games before it. the story is very complex

If you want to get rid of it, I'd be happy to take it ;)
