Why did'nt this game sell?

The Good

Panzer Dragoon Orta is the Fourth game in the Panzer Dragoon Series since Team Andromeda is no more the game is developed by Smilebit the amazing company that brought us great games such as Jet Grind Radio, and Gunvalkyrie. In case there’s any fan of the old afraid of Smilebit’s new direction simply put don’t be it’s every bit as good as the original games. Oddly enough Smilebit made a better sequel to this series than their own case in point Jet Set Radio Future.

You play as Orta a girl who is being kept prison by the empire and a dragon comes to free her you escape and try to stop the empire it plays just like the first and second and Panzer Dragoon there are nods to the original like a Azel costume and in a level of the game you are in a sort of memory fault and you hear the line the mysterious rider from the original you gives you the dragon as another bonus to fans of the original the first Panzer Dragoon is unlockable not all levels are you flying in one snow level your dragon’s wings are damaged and has to run And also heads up to the impatient gamer when you beat the game a more complete ending is shown after the credits and gives more closure.

The Bad

What was bad? Not much really the final boss is pretty tough considering how the rest of the game is easier.

The Bottom Line

If you loved the original games you will not be disappointed if you’re just looking for a action game to play you’ll probably enjoy it plus its cheap these days.
