Trying to remember name of obscure PSOne game

Hey,

Whilst reminiscing about Team Buddies (awesome game) I got to thinking about another obscure PSOne 'classic' that I've completely forgotten the name of.

It featured an array of weird character and had at least two modes I remember. The mode I played the most was an arena based brawler where you'd pick your character (space raptor thing was one) and then have a real time battle in a fairly small arena with other characters.

The other mode wrapped up the brawling in a turn based strategy type of game that was played out on a hexagonal board. I 'think' that when you initiated combat it would put you in the arena brawling mode, but I may be wrong. I don't think it was based on any existing franchise.

Does anyone have any idea what this game was called?

I could be completely wrong but that sounds like Tobal.

The Unholy War?

When you said space raptor and turn-based strategy, I immediately thought of that game and its cover art. I remember seeing ads for it all the time in PSM.

I've experienced this phenomena before. Trying to remember an obscure ps1 game from the barest of flashbacks is maddening. In my case it was The Granstream Saga.

It was maddening. Completely maddening.

Luckily (almost) everyone is totally spot on.It was The Unholy War! The weird part is that that name doesn't ring a bell AT ALL.

Meaning I'd never have found it without your help, thanks duders :)

I swear someone asked for the name of the same game on these boards about a year ago!

I played the crap out of this game's demo.

That could be because it's such a terrible name!
