One of my favorite SNES games
29 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game was, and still is, the definition of innovation, as it perfectly blended side-scrolling action and SimCity-style gameplay. You basically are god, and in the side-scrolling levels you take the form of a knight and fight monsters, including challenging bosses. After that's completed, people inhabit the land you just cleansed, and you have to guide them. You can choose which direction you want them to build, and you can perform miracles to change the landscape and make it more inhabitable, e.g. using lightning to destroy trees and bushes for building space, or using sun to dry up marshlands. Put that on top of high replay value, and a soundtrack that puts Final Fantasy VII to shame, and you have one of the best Virtual Console downloads this side of Ninja Gaiden.
