wasnt the bouncer a dream factory project too? =P i swear i remember reading that the bouncer was the reason SE parted ways with dream factory. while i enjoyed ergheiz i've never played the bouncer.
Yeah, The Bouncer was developed by Dream Factory as well. However the game was directed by Square's Takashi Tokita and the character designs were from Tetsuya Nomura. I have never heard anything good about that game, though. It apparently suffered from an extensive use of blur effects.
It actually wasn't that bad. Sorely needed a two-player co-op mode, some more enemy models, more depth and better level design. But I've played far worse games in the brawler genre (Final Fight Streetwise), and it had some interesting characters, a decent story and some really nice graphics for the time. Looked a bit smoother than FFX, in fact.
