As one of the few survivors ofthe destruction of Ciran all those years ago, Joseph has led a hard life. Now, the Emperor of the continent Orenia has invaded Masad village, his new home, looking for a young man with a strange mark on his hand - Identical to young Joseph's. Now, he must find out why the Emperor wants him so badly...

I first played Summoner in 2013, when I got it at a garage sale for my PS2. The title was enough to draw my attention, so I bought it and tried it out ASAP. The background of the protagonist, Joseph, is a sad one. The opening cinematic, after giving a bit of backstory, transitions into gameplay, and starts you off with a tutorial, which involves killing some of the afore-mentioned Orenians, referenced in-game as "Rennies." The controls are hard to get used to, as movement is controlled by mouse, but entirely possible to get used to. The lore of the world is a bit patchy in places, but there's enough there to give you a sense of the world's history. And then, there are the characters. Each of the four main characters has their own unique backstory (and I got deep into theorizing about one of them), meaning they all have their own specialized skill sets. Finally, for a game of its era, it's actually MASSIVE. Not quite Elder Scrolls massive, but still ♥♥♥♥ing HUGE. The navigation is a bit disappointing, however, as whenever you leave certain areas, such as Masad village or the Lenele Outskirts, it places you in the World Map. Traveling around the map, you have a chance to be placed in an Encounter, where you are pitted against rather powerful enemies, depending on your skills and inventory.The navigation is also disappointing because of how huge the continent you start on (Medeva) actually is. If Summoner had been made by Bethesda, Medeva and Orenia would each be the size of the Daggerfall map (approximately the size of Great Britain).

All in all, Summoner is a great game and, in my opinion, a worthwhile purchase. I give it 10 ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off Fire Imps out of 10.

Great game this.. one of the best RPG classics on steam and one of my personal favorite RPG's of all time

to this day Summoner still shines as a brilliant and enjoyable RPG experience with a fantastic story and enjoyable gameplay

that being said it does take a little getting used to the controls.. being a bit dated the controls can be a little off putting to new players who are used to the general PC controls but it doesn't take that long to ajust and familiarize yourself with the gameplay and controls

for those looking for some old school RPG's from the golden era of RPG's this is a definite must have and I would recommend this game to everyone who loves a good RPG

I'm one of those people who sank thousands of hours into this game, absolutely love this game to death, amazing story and tons of content for even different playthroughs, and there's plenty of reviews on the game from when it was released to ps2, so to make this short, if you don't mind the whole point/click system that's set up, this game would be an amazing buy, but personally I would recommend just going to a used game shop and getting an old copy of the game for ps2 and enjoy it along with summoner 2.

Wow i am so glad i tried installing this little game. The simplicity of it is what makes it such a great RPG.

Make sure to install the custom screen resolution patch

http://timeslip.users.sourceforge.net/ (Look at the left side of the web page and scroll down a bit until you see SUMMONER and download the patch)

Open the dinput.ini file and type in your custom resolution and make sure to remove the ; symbol in front
It should look like this
[Main]
;Remove the semicolons from the next line to set a custom screen resolution
ScreenWidth=1920
ScreenHeight=1080

It's been probably eight years since I played this, but I was very happy to see it available on Steam. I played the PC console-port of this game and liked it, for the most part. Keep in mind the graphics are dated, and the engine is dated, but it's still fun to play. I remember running into some graphical glitches and some quest glitches that were annoying, but didn't ruin the game for me. I'm a fan of the Volition games like Freespace 1 and 2 and this game was a fun departure from that game style. That said, I really, really, really hope Freespace 1 and 2 come to Steam! Summoner is a good console game port and is a fun game. I remember the summoning being extremely compelling and it kept me playing all those years ago. I'm looking forward to playing it again!

Absolute unknown gem of a game. Before you get it, though, remember that it came out over a decade ago. If you're a graphics ♥♥♥♥♥ look somewhere else, and be aware that it needs a simple (less than 5 minutes) fix to run correctly on modern machines. It has its imperfections but they're heavily outweighed by fun combat that you still have to think about, meaningful skill points, and the basic fun of summoning everything from a floating sword to the incarnation of death to help you in fights.

A quick rundown of the negatives: Has what one might call "old game syndrome" (no auto saves, quests rely on a walkthrough or you being persistant, such as finding an item in a town and you're not given any clue as to where it is, enemies can really spike in difficulty, and other things that games have more or less grown out of) story is a bit predictable at times, some parts of the game drag on for a long time while others you just walk in walk out, if you put skill points into the wrong skills you're at a decent disadvantage, possibly completely screwed if you decided that you would max all wrong skills first, the game's a bit easy, especially if you know or find some of the more exploitative mechanics, the AI is more than a bit dodgy at times, and the voice actor of the main character is honestly so-so

The positives: Loot system as well as exploration feels rewarding, varied gameplay, while there may be a functional best build there is far from only one build to make your characters strong, very nice aesthetics to the game, combat is fun, I only felt it to be grind-y when I was literally grinding to catch up on a few skills before I hit a big boss, you level up frequently enough that you feel like you're constantly improving and if you decide you really need a skill you can get the points fast enough, good plot that has a number of twists, bosses (and a number of regular enemies) are challenging without needing 20 tries to defeat, the summons are very fun to use and can make hard areas easy, and the side quests can also be extremely rewarding

I remember having the original disc on the PS2. I think it is one of the best RPGs, and one of the most underrated. It is worth every penny to play this again. Good storyline. They had a second summoner, but in this case i think the first was the best.

Of course I do recommend this game.. Damn it. It's one of the best RPG's I've ever played in my life, I still have it on ps2 and I was thinking about finding games like this because it's impossible to find anything similar today.

There are some RPG's but nothing will ever be compared to it, the storyline, the amount of items/abilities is huge. I never thought about replaying the game because I remember how long it took me to finish it as I like to explore a lot and to take everysingle stuff.

The storyline is great, my overall score for the game would be 10/10. And remember real gamers doesn't care about graphics !

PS: In the same kind of very good rpg there was also Gorly 17, also called Odium but it's a bit more strategical.

WoW, once again these old games never cease to amaze! While it is currently debated among some friends, I still think Summoner is the inspiration for Skyrims tale. You are born with a mark that allows you to summon, but not until you get proper training, even the king without an heir (his 4 sons died under strange circumstances, and one idiot move), While some argue this is a storyline of many games and movies, I feel this one is very close to how Skyrim is written

The world appears gigantic, however downside, is there are not enough NPC's to make up for the space. So it feels empty in these otherwise large towns, cities and buildings.

Music is modern - odd choice, you would expect something celtic - but it works - at least for me.

Graphicly, it is the style of the old Gothic RPG, maybe a little less, but the story is amazing and the mechanics are great. The casting of spells have nice animation, and I was pleased to see that most of the A.I. on your team works well. Sometimes you have to make sure they are attacking the right mob, but for the most part they know where to go.

There has been a massive complain that the game runs to fast on modern systems, so with that, I'll post here in this review how to fix that - For $5 its a good buy! Get it.

---- ------------------------------------------------------------
---- SLOW DOWN FIX FOR SUMMONER
---- Tested with Win 7 64bit QUAD Core..
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Win7 64bit QUAD Core - Here is a fix I used. Work very nice
If you have tinkered with the V-Sync then you already know thatt is a hit and miss (system dependent)
Changing the Afinnity will not work either, as these games are made to run on single core (sometimes dual core), and will not recognize anything other than that. So using more cores is impossible

Here is a successful option, that works on many games (and some DOS games as well).
I know it works in win7, if you have another OS and can follow this method - please confirm.

CREATE A NEW POWER MANAGEMENT
Go to control panel: In the search box (upper right) type POWER then click "Choose a power plan"
A new split view will open.
Select "Create a New Power Plan" (left side panel)
Select High Performance
And name it something like "Old Games"
Next
Change both settings in the next view to NEVER
Click "Create"

Now you will see your new power setting (now selected). Click on "Change plan settings"
You'll now have a link that says "Change advanced Power settings"
Scroll down to "Processor Power Management"
Change the Minimum Processor State to 1% (YES ONE PERCENT)
Change the Maximum Processor State to 1% (SAME)

Save it, your done.
NO YOUR COMPUTER WILL NOT RUN AT 1% but it will force it to use the lowest possible processor state as most games are run by state of the processor.
Which this will likely be somewhere between 500-800mhz.

during play there were a few (very rare) minor speed glitches, but they lasted a fraction of a second.. sorta like a hiccup. But it plays nice.

Again, this works on my W7 64bit, Quad Core... results may vary on other systems.

Hope this helped at least ONE person so that they may enjoy this classic!!

Blast from the past this one, but in a good way. I remember having many late nights playing Summoner on the PS2. The PC port works fine and I suspect will run on fairly low end rigs. The Graphics are a little muddy looking in places but Summoner's not really the kind of game I play for good visuals. Bottom line is -

If your up for a decent RPG experience with slightly dated visuals then for the price you can't really go wrong. Summoner is one of those games you can sink heaps of time into and still only scratch the surface.

Recommended to any fan of old style RPGS!

Hands down one of my most favorite games of all time. The story and music are amazing as well as the voice acting. They just don't make em like this anymore.

I remember getting dozens of hours out of this and look forward to getting many more. Great big thank you to the people who made bringing this to Steam possible. Now if only they could port the second summoner game to PC. That would rule.

Probably my favorite computer RPG. Great music, atmosphere, story. The graphics were spellbinding when I *first* played it, so I'm still glazed over by that perception, but it's still a blast to play. My favorite series from Volition.

Highly recommended.
