SummaryA cool single-player RPG
The GoodThe game has very good graphics, and the sound and music are also nice. Another positive note is that there isn't (as far as I can recall) a need to upgrade armor and or weapons. So you don't need to constantly scavenge for money just to buy that super powerful sword/armor. Combat is easy: you can attack with either a ranged weapon or a melee weapon. The ranged weapon includes spells, or a magic sling. The melee weapon is your sword (scimitar if you prefer), and you have 3 style with which to attack by. These depend on how long you hold down your attack key. The first is a simple vertical slash, the second is a horizontal slash, and the third is a spinning slash. In either case, you have to increase in level before attaining these new techniques.
The BadFor hard-core RPGers, the simple fact that the game did -not- have armor and weapons to buy makes it less fun. Sure, it's less to worry about, but it's also disappointing. Switching weapons/managing an inventory is what makes RPGs (IMHO) fun. Not having this did not make the game less fun, but gave it a pretty low replay value. After all, once you beat it, you beat it. No need to search for a super-secret-powerful weapon. While we're at it, I beat the game in a week (constant playing, super-easy mode), so it doesn't last very long.
