A cult classic RPG video game by the talented Keita Amemiya.
6 February 2003 | by (Sao Paulo, Brasil) – See all my reviews

Rudra no Hihou (Rudra's Treasure) is probably one of the best games Squaresoft and CROWD inc. made together. Not only is it best of Square or Amemiya, but best Super Famicom RPG ever made, PEROD!

Here is why:


What is this? Is this playstation game? What!? Super Nintendo!? HOLY CRAP!!! These graphics are simply amazing, they are nearly 32 bit graphics on a 16 system, everything looks excellent, the sprites, the enemies (Who are not just static images, they're actual moving sprites) and especially the backdrops. The terrain is colorful and pretty to look at, it beats the hell out of FFIV's crap overworld and is almost as good as FFVI! The battle animations look extremely cool and everything is just... INCREDIBLE!!!

SOUNDS 10/10

Man, the music of this game ROCKS! Every single theme in the game rules! My favs are Surlent's theme, the Battle and Boss themes which just completely kick every Final Fantasy ever made's ass, and that extremely spooky theme you sometimes here. The sound effects are clear and satifying. Though they mostly sound like different varieties of THWACK noises, they are still quite satisfying and neat.


By far the most fast paced and exciting RPG I've ever played. Fortunately that ATB crap is nowhere to be found so matches are fast paced, fun and your in no rush to choose your attacks. The magic system rules too, you actually get to customize magic in a very cool matter, you do this by talking to some drunken wizard you often meet at a bar and select and magic for him to change, there are also different ways to do this too but I'm not quite sure just yet. Boss fights also require alot of strategy and thinking, they dont just do random attacks. Overall, this game ROCKS!

PLOT (10/10): Every 4000 years, on an un-named planet, there is a cycle of ressurection and destruction. The victims of this cacalysmic events were a race of mystics called Danans, Amphibion-like Fish Sprites (Mizushu-Sai), Repltilian people (Hahchu-Rui) and Giants (Kyojin). Now, it is up to the fifth race, the Humanoids, are the dominate race of this planet and it is up to four sacred warriors to team up with the various races and put an end to the cycle of ressurection and destruction. The plot gets deeper on here when you play as each of the four lead characters.

CHARACTERS (10/10): There are plenty of interesting characters in the game. And another thing, Rudra no Hihou also shows us that there are no actual pure good and evil, but one side out balances the other (Yin and Yang), thus, making shades of grey in between. Wish every RPG would be like that.

CHALLENGE: Rather difficult for foreigners. Don't expect to beat this game too quickly folks.

OVERALL (10/10): ''Rudra no Hihou'' is one of the most powerful and enjoyable RPGs of our time. Rumor has it that there is a French release on the computers, so dowload it if you can!

PS, Surlent and Dune rule!
