I played this originally at ps2 launch and thought I would see how it holds up today. What I found was an excellent, very mature story with loads of interesting lore that I actually have the patience and maturity to read through now. You get to summon quite a vast array of different minions to fight along side you, like a hulking minotaur or a spell flinging imp depending on your preference.

It's very surprising how catchy the music gets at points where it starts out atmospheric then suddenly goes nuts with some very fitting tune. The game is a party based rpg where you can pause any time to issue orders like Baldurs gate. I feel that this sort of gameplay fits pc's much better then a console controller would. Anyways, if your looking for a fun mature game this will definitely hold up after you get used to the dated graphics.

One of my most beloved classic RPGs of all time. Great story, interesting characters with background and motives, gameplay and combat system is good with active pause, planning ans skill usage. I definitly recomend it to all fans of good old-school RPGs with great story and complex world.

I've still got a copy of this for the PS2. A great classic RPG. For whatever reason, I never finished it as a teenager. I intend to change that.

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
