Gungrave Overdose is a breath of fresh air on this console, but to be honest, if you want to really appreciate this title play Gungrave. It is based on this fact that I rate it so high! The camera, sound, music, physics, graphics and most importantly the movement have been revamped for this higher budget sequel of this cult manga. The new found freedom with your movement is your savior in this high paced game as you assume the role of the un-dead Grave to blow through everyone in your way. you have new specials but the ability to heal yourself is not available from the beginning. The only downside that I see with Overdose is the fact that the target switch is utterly useless! Completley needed, but nonexsistant in the first game. This new ability is nothing but a mere hinderance and WILL GET YOU KILLED if you keep trying to use it. Also I liked it when the phrase "Kick their BLANK" just crashed together when the level loaded. In this game they opted out to give it it's own full screen which I thought was kind of lame. The game was based off of the manga written by the same creator as Trigun. So nothing at all falls short in that catoglory. Sound is way better from screams to gunshots. All in all Gungrave = rent - Gungrave Overdose = BUY ME!!!
YOU WOULD HAVE TO AN OLD ATARI LOVER TO REALY LIKE THIS ONE. THE GAME IS WELL JUST LIKE OLD DUKE NUKEM. THE CAMERA AND ACTION IS SLUGGISH FOR THE ACTION REQUIRED BY THE GAMER AND THE VIDEO ANGLE IS POORLY PLACED THROUGH 90 PERCENT OF THE GAME. FOR A FIERST PERSON SHOOTER GAME YOU MIGHT NOT WANT THIS ONE. YOU CAN BASICALLY BLAST YOUR WAY THROUGH WITH NO MIND SET OTHER THAN MOVE REVIVE AND SHOOT. IT TOOK LESS THAN 4 HOURS TO BEAT THE GAME ON DIFFICULT AND ON MOST LEVELS JUST RUNNING THROUGH WITH GUNS BLAZING IS ALL IT TOOK. NOT MY BEST THOUGHT FOR ANY SERIOUSE GAMER BUT A PERFECT 10 FOR YOUR SMALL KIDS!!!
