Back of Case (UK):

    OPPOSING POLITICAL FORCES HAVE DIVIDED JAPAN INTO THREE TERRITORIES.
    TURN-BASED ROUNDS ALLOWING MOVEMENT TO STRATEGIC POSITIONS AND THE SETTING UP OF WAR MACHINES AND TROOPS, ARE FOLLOWED BY FURIOUS, FAST FLOWING, REAL-TIME COMBAT.
    DO YOU HOLD BACK FOOT SOLDIERS AND WEAKEN THE ENEMY...OR... MOVE IN FOR A QUICK KILL AND RISK CRIPPLING LOSSES?



    With close range scraps, truckloads of weapons, in-depth missions, WWII robot tank action, special attacks, cinematic camera work, HUGE special effects and real time warfare, Ring of Red removes the boredom out of battle simulations.

    "THE GAMEPLAY... IS NOTHING MORE THAN TOP CLASS AND REPRESENTS YET ANOTHER TRIUMPH FOR KONAMI"

    "A GREAT, HIGHLY ORIGINAL AND ENGAGING TITLE. A MUST FOR THOSE IN SEARCH OF SOMETHING DIFFERENT" 8/10

    Official PlayStation 2 Magazine

    "ENVELOPING AND CAPTIVATING FROM BEGINNING TO END . . . AN UNEXPECTED DELIGHT." 8/10

Back of Case (German):
    NACH DEM ZWEITEN WELTKRIEG HAT SICH DIE LAGE IN JAPAN KEINESWEGS ENSPANNT. VERBITTERT KÄMPFEN DREI GROßMÄCHTE UM DIE VORHERRSCHAFT AUF DER INSEL: FÜHREN SIE IHRE TRUPPEN IN DEN KAMPF, UND NUTZEN SIE DABEI DIE NEUESTE ENTWICKLUNG MIT VERHEERENDER FEUERKRAFT: DIE WALKER! ZEIGEN SIE IHR KÖNNEN UND GESCHICK AUF DEM TOSENDEN SCHLACHTFELD, WO ES KEINE GNADE GIBT …

    Ring of Red bietet spannende Echtzeitsimulation, die jedoch durch gewaltige Action, eine Fülle von Waffen, detaillierten Einsätzen, Spezialattacken, cineastischen Sequenzen und Effekten nicht mit anderen Simulationen zu vergleichen ist. Hier dominiert Spannung pur!
