I use Swap Magic 3.6 so I'd recommend that version or higher. If its not the game then its either the swap disk or system. I bet its not the system, I mean my PS2 is an old version that has that read error problem but the game fully ran.Eddie said:I'm using a non-solder mod chip, swap magic 2.0 and a dvd loader. Any suggestions?
I always thought it would be awesome and reasonable to have Guts, Skull Knight, Zodd, Griffith, and maybe Casca as guest fighters in another fighting game like Guilty Gear or Soul Calibur. Of course, just Guts as a character would be more than anyone could hope for. A just Berserk characters fighting game would be amazing though.avidwriter said:PS. Berserk fighter?
I think you're talking about level design and not gameplay here. Honestly, the gameplay was the best part of the game to me compared to the Dreamcast game. No more sticking your sword in the walls and random human soldiers taking 20 hits from the Dragon Slayer to die. The music was alright, but nothing special aside from Sign. The graphics were decent but when the DC game came out it wasn't just decent but impressive. The cutscenes and story were simplified versions of the actual story and I didn't enjoy them much. However the boss fights were great for the most part. The level design was largely uninspired though, and consisted mostly of long corridors with swarms of enemies waiting for you.blackgenma said:ans was utterly disappointed and shocked at who poorly designed the game play was? being a huge fan of berserk and having enjoyed the dreamcast game, I expected some great stuff from that game, but MAN, is it poorly designed. the most annoying aspect is that they had everything right BUT the general game play. the animation, the music, the cut scenes, the voices, the graphics, Guts abilities, and the boss fights, all so good. then your not fighting a boss, your running down some big path, mashing the square button, or just running, because the enemies won't punish for ignoring them. wouldn't be too bad if the levels weren't massive, and these segments didn't take so long.
I thought it was Ok, but nothing incredible. I wouldn't recommend it to a non-fan. And just for its story, I prefer the DC game.blackgenma said:what are your opinions on the game? did you like it? hate it? think its better or worse than the dreamcast one?
Honestly I don't think the RPG genre fits the story at all.avidwriter said:What can they really do for a Berserk game besides maybe an RPG
Personally, I think the only way something like that could actually work was making a RPG (preferably something more open-ended than the railroad-story adventure games like most jrpgs) that only happened inside the Berserk universe, and had completely new characters, maybe someone familiar ones as short-showing npcs... Done right, I would really like to play such game but I'm not sure something like that would be really marketable/popular.Aazealh said:
It should work, I mean I am using a Chinese memory card on my PS2. Did you remember that O is the enter button and X is the back button? It's like that for most Japanese games.Lithrael said:Sorry to revive such an old thread, but I'm hoping for some help. I just (finally) got a Japanese PS2 so I can play Berserk again. But I can't figure out how to get my saved game to load up. I see my lil Puck save icon in the actual memory card when I use the system browser but when I put in the disc and try to continue there are no saves there. I don't remember having this problem back when I played on a US PS2 with swap magic... I'm using an old US memory card with both US and JP games saved on it... Am I hitting the wrong yes/no buttons or is this a general JP/US PS2 problem I should be solving on an import gaming forum?
There's the normal edition and the collector's edition. The collector's edition came with a special Guts action figure from AOW in a pretty box (it was called the "Branded Box"). Also, the normal edition's disc is pink while the collector's edition disc is golden. That's it, assuming you're only talking about the Japanese version of the game and not the Korean one, since it obviously differs as well.Konketsuji said:Guys, I just found out that there were two versions of this game, I just bought it and unfortunately my save files from previous walkthroughs didn't work, so I had to start over. Maybe someone knows the difference between them, I would love to hear it?
Yeah, I know about the Branded Box. It's just I don't know if i can talk about it, but hell, I bought the game so it doesn't make any difference now. Anyway, here's the full story, a couple years ago I downloaded a game marked "Berserk PS2 Jap" beat it two times, some time passed and I decided to buy it for my collection. And as I told before the save files didn't work with this "pink disk version". I started searching and found out there were two Japanese versions SLPM-65686 and SLPM-65688, I thought there could be an updated version or some additional content.Aazealh said:There's the normal edition and the collector's edition.
