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

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!
