Summary

A game many underrated

The Good

This game is a bit longer than an average RPG, it takes about 20 hours to beat, for a game released in 1993, thats pretty decent.

The plot and scenario writing is pretty good.

The Bad

The programming, sometimes an enemy can attack you, then you decide what youre going to do next and it attacks again. Your character will shoot at an already dead target, ok for an NES game, but for an SNES game, thats a little too primitive.

The music tracks are a bit too repetitive and too short for an RPG, some tracks are played throughout the entire game, others you only hear once. Some may argue that its Yasunori Shiono's first work on an SNES game, but thats no excuse considering his experience on Japanese PCs prior to this game.

The Bottom Line

Once you get over the flaws that are in this game, its actually not that bad.
