A very detailed world and wonderful story make this a great game for the SNES.
4 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

This game was a favorite of mine when I was younger. It was hard to find, but unlike a couple of others my parents were able to find this one kind of like Xenogears, by searching everywhere for it! Others I have missed out on or have gotten later in life thanks to the internet. This one is made by the same company as Final Fantasy and they would go on to make more games using the format of game play this one does. This one, however, is the best game I have played to use this particular format. It is not even close as the story is very well done and the worlds varied enough to keep you playing. The format is a top down perspective with real time combat. I am usually more of a fan of turn based combat, but this one's real time is actually pretty good. So for all of you out there (and I know there are a lot) who do not care for random battles, you are in the clear with this one. This one has a boy going on an adventure that gets very complicated as near the end you are battling a strange cult along with two companions...a young girl and a sprite trying to save the world from disaster. The visuals are wonderful in this one for the time and like I said the story is simple to start, but then keeps getting better. Something about role playing games that feature crazy religious cults...I do not know, they always have the more interesting stories. The fighting, while better than a lot of games featuring real time and multiple characters, can get a bit repetitive at times. This is mainly when you are trying to level up your weapons. Speaking of weapons, you get a wide variety here and every character can use every weapon. You level the weapons up for each character by fighting with said weapon. The music is also good in this one too, so minus the repetitive nature of the combat this game is a very grand adventure.
