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!!

The RPG classic 4(5) charactergameplay with a fantastic characterdevelopment and a hard difficulty. Mustbuy as retrofan of such RPG's, for me it was pure nostalgia, would also buy Summoner 2 if it's released on Steam.... If it would happen.

This version of Summoner is not reworked or anything else. And honestly, it still works and i had no problems at all.

Summoner is a very good game that came out way back when the ps2 was in its prime. It was made for both the ps2 and the PC. Made by violition and THQ it had small but decent studio's working on it. The story was really what made this game what it was beecause it sure as hell wasn't the graphics. The game has an amazing story and rich lore. The combat is turn based on the level of dragon age origions but with four different companions to switch around at max it gives you plenty to think about before your turn is even up. The four companions all have rich stories as well. Graphics are smeh at best, remember this was a ps2/old PC game and so it didn't have the best graphics. Sound is usually good, the music on all the different levels and world random encounters you have is amazing and it really gets you into the game. All in all I would give this a 9/10.
Remember your definitely not playing this game for the graphics.

I was playing this when I accidentally clicked on the Credits button and then suddenly an easter egg started where the main characters are all playing Dungeon and Dragons to the audio of the infamous "Dead Ale Wives" sketch...

5 STARS, A+, 10/10!

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.

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!
