Time Crisis: Project Titan was developed by Flying Tiger Entertainment, a third-party company in the United States, and was published by Namco as a PlayStation-only title (unlike other Time Crisis games that were released for the arcade first). The game took two years to develop. According to IGN, Namco opted to create a new game instead of porting over Time Crisis II since the specifications of the arcade version and the PlayStation were so different.

  • Project Titan features the same gameplay as the other Time Crisis games. It also retains the signature foot pedal. Players by default are in hiding position. They are shielded from taking fire, but they cannot fire back. In order to begin play, players must step on the pedal and begin firing. Stepping off the pad also allows the player to reload the gun.
  • This game introduces the a new gameplay mechanic that allows the player to move to multiple fixed locations, which are activated by shooting yellow arrows while the player is hiding. This feature was later reused in the arcade version of Time Crisis 4.
  • Project Titan currently has an aggregrate rating of 69% at Game Rankings.[3] A major complaint of the game were the poor graphics. Ryan Davis said that the visuals were "badly outdated" and the animation "downright bad." Doug Perry simply said that it looked "old, dated, and bad" and that it didn't look any better than original Time Crisis PlayStation port.

In Stock Now! - Vagrant Story (Ultimate Hits) (Import PSX) - $29.99

Our Price: $29.99
Release Date: 7/20/06
UPC: 4988601004749
Genre: RPG
Company: Square Enix
Version: Japan - SLPM-87393

Vagrant Story​ is a Japanese-developed console role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) for the PlayStation video game console. The game was released in 2000, and has been re-released through the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable consoles nine years later. Vagrant Story was primarily developed by the team responsible for Final Fantasy Tactics, with Yasumi Matsuno serving as producer and director.

  • Vagrant Story is one of those games that wows you at the start--a big "WOW!" in this case--but maintains only a tenuous hook in the long haul. In this mix of action/adventure and fantasy role-playing, players are cast as a Riskbreaker (think one-man army) named Ashley Riot, whose pursuit of a villainous cult leader takes him to the mysterious city of Lea Monde.
  • The highly stylized graphics in Vagrant Story are easily some of the best ever seen on the PlayStation, and give the game a gorgeous, distinctive look to match its somber tone. Cinematic story sequences blend in almost seamlessly with gameplay, which takes place in 3-D environments (viewed from a third-person perspective) that can be rotated to provide the best angle.
  • Vagrant Story features a rich battle system that's built on both strategy and quick reflexes. In addition to character statistics, weapons and armor have detailed numbers of their own and can be disassembled, assembled, or even combined to create new items. Hand/eye coordination factors heavily into combat, as Ashley develops offensive and defensive battle abilities that require perfectly timed button pushing in order to be used.
  • Unfortunately, it's all too easy to get bored with Vagrant Story. The painfully linear gameplay here doesn't rise above killing enemy after enemy in room after room, and (oh boy!) solving puzzles by manipulating boxes. If not for the wholly intriguing (but sparsely littered) plot, one would be strongly tempted just to leave Ashley to rot in the catacombs beneath Lea Monde. --Joe Hon

Threads of Fate, known in Japan as Dewprism, is a console role-playing game for the PlayStation console developed and published by Square (now Square Enix). The story revolves around the adventure of two characters, Mint and Rue, and a highlight of the game is that the player is able to play from the perspective of either.

  • The gameplay is simple and action-oriented rather than turn-based, playing more like an action platformer than a traditional menu-based RPG such as those in the Final Fantasy series. It is more similar in style to the Mana games by Square or even The Legend of Zelda series by Nintendo. The lead female character, Mint, attacks with a pair of chakrams, known as the Dual Haloes, and is a proficient magic user.
  • The lead male character, Rue, is more physical and attacks with his axe, Arc Edge. He also has the ability to transform into various monsters that he defeats, utilizing their attacks and powers. The ring menu used to select Mint's magic attacks or Rue's shape-shifting is reminiscent of the menu system in Secret of Mana.
  • At the beginning of the game, the player is given the choice of playing through the game as either Mint or Rue. Depending on the selection, the game proceeds with one of two storylines.
  • Though the quests are very similar, the storylines themselves have a branching quality that brings certain scenarios to life in one storyline without remotely mentioning them in the other; completing both games will give the player a holistic storyline to weave together from the two, as well as a 'true' ending to the game.
