Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Hydlide is a good game with graphics that are average and music that is not too terribly annoying. 90% of the game is comprised of building up energy to play the other 10%. A good alternative to Ultima, Zelda, and other quest-oriented RPG games.

Trust me it is a decent game, but it isn’t great. If you are in the mood for a unique battle engine with a lot of grinding, give it a try.

Like I said, the overworld is small, so it stands to reason that the game isn't particularly long, which is true. You also have the option to save your progress at any time. By the time you have beaten this game, however, you will likely wish you had spent the time playing something else, although it might entertain you for an hour or two if you are into this kind of game.

In the long run, Hydlide is a game you don't want to play. If you want a game that looks like Zelda, and plays like Zelda, you might be better off with Zelda.
