Summary

Awesomely awesome game. Blue Byte pulled it off well...

The Good

It's great. The layout is creative for the battle, the exploring, the map. It's all good. The 3D "dungeon exploring" was great. Never boring. Few faults if any. The story and graphics put this game up there with some of Squaresoft's classics. I was surprised that such an un-advertised, un-popular game could be so much fun.

The Bad

I found it hard to heal my party. You can rest in lots of places but only if your party is tired and if you have rations. I found myself buying lots of rations because the enemies are so tough. It's rare to win a battle with all of your party members alive early on in the game.

The Bottom Line

Overall it's a great game. Blue Byte did amazing work with this one. One of my all time favorites.
