Champions: Return to Arms - ps2

 

doesn't feel like the true sequel Snowblind probably intended it to be. The short development cycle, graphics that look similar (but no less great) to the first game (including some recycled tile sets), and the underwhelming story all combine to result...

Champions of Norrath is one of my favorite PS2 games. I've always been a big Gauntlet fan and with Norrath, you had a Gauntlet like game with some RPG elements and a great online aspect. I've spent a lot of time with friends playing the game and...

An expansion pack feel but a blast with friends, Champions Return to Arms gives you more dungeon romping fun.

Champions: Return to Arms can best be summed up as Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance in the Everquest universe. Not only does the game look and play exactly like Dark Alliance, but also has some of the same exact mapsets seemingly imported into Champions....

Action ; Balanced characters ; Sound ; Smooth online play

Shallow story ; Not enough improvements ; Lack of new features

Those who are going to want this game were already convinced before reading. Those who are unsure? Rent Champions of Norrath and if that is something you enjoy, dive into this.

Charmed Return?

From reading through the review, you may form an impression that I didn't enjoy this particular game. Quite the contrary is actually true. Return to Arms is a better game than the original, but only slightly. With new abilities for old classes,...

Gameplay

Champions: Return to Arms is a must have for any gamer who loves light RPGs, hack n� slash type games, or for those who just love to look at games with beautiful detailing and graphics. While the gameplay is almost identical to Champions of Norrath,...

Champions: Return To Arms Review

 

SOE's second title in the popular action RPG franchise for the PS2 offers familiar gameplay and new features that some fans will love.

Ultimately Champions: Return to Arms is old hat and new hat. There's a whole new story, working multiplayer, thousands of new items, new mini-games and sidequests, new classes to play, and the ability to play evil and good plot paths. On the other side...

Champions: Return to Arms review for the PS2

 

We are the champions...again?

Can import your character; Better online play; More Norrath

Instead of more gameplay; Mashy mashy mashy; Recycled enemies and tiles; Still a bad story; Should cost 20 bucks

In other words, this game should be priced down…and it isn't. Fifty bucks for what is essentially a game you played last year (and most likely have been playing in one form or another for the last four years) is simply too much, especially when, after...

Snowblind Studios is at it again, but the genre seems to be getting stale. You can only hack 'n' slash so much.

Return to Arms was fun, but the genre needs something to freshen things up. Another upgrade next year just won't do it. Perhaps when the PlayStation 3 hits, we'll see some major innovation here? If not, the appeal of the hack 'n' slash is likely to...

The champions are back with fully functional online implementation, but nothing much new or different enough to stand out otherwise.

The online play has been completely fixed; it's still pretty, and it's still fun

Gameplay hasn't evolved even a little from previous games
