Bouncer only got a silver... I\'m afraid this might be one of those rushed pleagued with Jaggies games.

I was right.pso and seven kick ass. bouncer would be great but because of only 1 player be held back.
to there are ways to give the illusion of AA,without having to take cuts in performance,and some developers are are taking advantage of themhowever ,until SOny comes up with a specific and easy ways to implement true AA that dosent take major hits on performance,you probably wont be seeing a huge number of games take advantage of it.

Famitsu is known to give low scores to most games and The Bouncer got a Silver rating so that\'s pretty good by their standards.

However i really find intriguing that GunSpike got such a high score, i have the game and the game plays like a 16 bit game. Now dont get me wrong, it\'s a really good title but it\'s only about 30 minutes long and i finished it the 1st day i bought it.

The game has no story at all and the game just doesnt make any sense (Cammy, Megaman and Arthur togheter in the same game????)and i find it weird that The Bouncer that was supposed to be the 1st Ps2 AAA title got a smiliar score.

BTW the DC welcomes another must have game to it\'s library... Yuji Naka\'s Phantasy Star Online!!!!!!:)

Um.....The Bouncer has support for up to 4 players (last time I checked).  So unless they scrapped the idea since I\'ve read my last preview (about a week or 2 ago), then there will be multiplayer.  
And isn\'t Silver pretty good from Famitsu?  I never read anything about them but I\'ve heard they\'re strict. But anyway, I\'m sure I\'ll have fun with Bouncer.  Too bad I gotta wait a whole \'nother month and a half for it :(

I was a little dissapointed in the scores the Bouncer and Daytona got, but Silver is not bad at all.
 
From the gameplay movies, the Bouncer looks like nothing more then a glorified Dynamite Cop or Final Fight game IMO.  Nevertheless I\'ll still check out the Bouncer, and if I don\'t get it right away, at the very least I\'ll pick it up when it\'s a bargain bin game.  Daytona 2001 will be mine! :)

Its really a one player. but they added some  battle mode. so its 4 player now. But the story only allows for 1 player unlike what it was suppose to be  4  players at the same time in story mode.

Ah, guys...

Really, don\'t read too much into what reveiws say about games. It\'s what YOU think of the game, and if YOU have fun playing it.
Chances are the person who playtested it was Racing fan of racing games and couldn\'t give two craps about fighting games. Well, maybe not, but you get the idea.
One person coud call the game crap, while another could call it the best ever made.

Like with WWF Attitude. It\'s scored 9.5/10 or something at absolute playstation.com, so I went out and bought it.
I hated the game. Luckily I could take the game back and get my money back. The game was sheet, I just didn\'t like it. I would have given it a 6/10. You see how peoples opinions differ greatly?

Famitsu isn\'t the do all and end all of how good a game is. Play it yourself, then decide.

From what I\'ve seen, I already want to get the bouncer.

I\'m using my DC to type this and I don\'t have a keyboard! :(

Anyway, I\'m glad PSO received a high score and I\'m sure The Bouncer is a great game.

Now, I have to fix my PC.:)
