Quotes

Dyluck: Princess... can you hear me? It's me, Dyluck... He's too strong... I'm finished, but I can help you... Thanatos is an ancient sorcerer who sold his heart to the underworld. Though his life force is eternal, he hasn't his own body. His life force is growing darker. He feeds on hatred and destruction!

Wow!!
18 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is truly an exceptional game! Not only is it a adventure game like the popular Zelda series, but you are able to have 3 players at once! Each of the 3 characters are very inspired, each with their own little story and background. Once excellent feature in this game was the ability to power up weapons and magic. Once a weapon or magic has been used a numerous amount of times, it will gain a level, and become more powerful. It's very innovative! Try this game, you'll love it!
